Source of Reference

A couple weeks ago a client contacted us and told us he had read on a discussion forum that someone had wanted information on equipment shipping. It took me a while but I finally located the source. It turned out that we had met Dr. Ellington Darden several years ago at a SuperSlow conference in Indianapolis. His website is drdarden.com. This is his Hit Revolution website on his High Intensity Training Program but under Discussion Form a couple of our clients gave David "high marks" for his work.

It is always nice to know that our clients appreciate the quality of our work.

Occasionally we have also been listed on E-Bay as a shipper also. Thanks to all of you who have recommended us through these mediums. Please let us know if you post about our work on anyother sites.

RATES

Not by the mile, not by the weight, we prefer not palletized over palletized. The more you have the better price we can give you. We do load and drop and also assembly/disassembly. Each job is never the same, surprisingly. We make every attempt to charge our customers they best price we can considering the amount of work each job entails. We prefer each customer contacts us directly for pricing. We continue to try and keep prices reasonable during the ever changing economic times.

I prefer written quotes over verbal, I love paper trails. Unfortunately our timeframe can be long 6-8 weeks typically. Explaining that if you purchase one piece in New York and want it delivered in Arizona it may take us awhile to get it to you or you might get lucky and get it right away. Traveling all over the 48 states is tough for one guy...But you will be happy you hired us, hopefully. :-)

LIFE OF A TRUCK DRIVER FAMILY

Over the years I have been asked the same question, time and time again. "Don't you get tired of David being on the road so much?" Well it hasn't always been easy. It takes a special person to be able to handle the alone time, decision making, and running a family without your spouse at home on a normal 9/5 schedule. I sometimes use the analogy I felt like a military spouse. Long periods of away time, although he doesn't dodge bullets, he has to dodge other drivers on the road, long hours, etc. truck driving is considered one of the most dangerous occupations in the country.

Our now grown children and myself had to sacrifice many things, but I think it actually helped mold both two wonderful now successful young people and made me a better person. Sometimes we forget also that it wasn't just the family at home that had the rough times, David sacrificed just as much if not more than we have. Also this is our business, how we make our living and what put two children through college and the roof over our head. We cherish the time we do have together and hold it close. We also like to remind people although we don't work in a traditional office setting, and have normal working hours, we expect the same respect you would give to anyone you would do business with. It isn't as easy as it looks, and its definitely not a job for everyone.
