New Process for 2013/Updated Schedule Goalder Transportation 11/26/2012 thru 12/2012 Year End

To hopefully help a little on keeping track of job requests for 2013, I am revamping a form I tried several years ago. You will now be able to use this form to input all your information for each pickup/delivery. This will maybe alleviated numerous e-mails with bits and pieces of info and phone calls that seems to get lost in the shuffle. Contact me directly by e-mail goaldertransportation@hotmail.com or call (660) 829-4241. This will then be passed along to David. So no form no pickup..

 
Working on the schedule will upload later today or tomorrow.

Antique Equipment Collector Item-Milo Triplex Dumbbell


On my recent spur of the moment two day trip with David to Chicago, a client he has worked with for several years asked if he would be able to pick up a special item for him. I always love listening to these one sided conversations and watching the expression on his face. Knowing David as I do he doesn't like to say "No" and doesn't understand sometimes why people buy what they do but I always explain and compare it too all the figure skating items he has purchased for me over the years. Although my collection is no longer really a good comparison probably but everything is collectible. Another man's trash is someone's treasure.

I always enjoy going a little further and finding out what the history is on an item. When I first saw the exchange of this item I thought it looks like the circus sideshow strong man dumb bells. Getting a closer look this Milo Triplex was one of the first of it's kind in the early 1900's.

Further historical significance on this can be read through a paper written by Jan Todd, Ph.D. entitled, "From Milo to Milo-History of Barbells, Dumbbells and Indian Clubs" that is a part of the la84foundation.org sports library.

Thanks Tim C for the interesting experience and history lesson.

Testimonals Encouraged

As always with any business the only way we can improve our services is by you our customers. In this age of technology there are good and bad ways to pass on how a company is doing as far as providing the best possible service.

Be as gentle as possible we will take into consideration everything that is posted. Just remember we are a staff of two, we are much better than A&E's Shipping Wars, (if you haven't watched this reality series put it on your list and than do a comparison). I'm pretty sure we will get mostly *****five stars...

We have started 2012 with enthusiasm and look forward to serving all our current customers and new ones as we always have. We appreciate your business and would like you to use this blog as a way to express your experience with us. This is our advertising and public relations and our way to improve services to you.

One comment we have heard frequently is "I wish I had went with you in the first place". Some feel what we charge may be "high" but if you take into consideration David's experience and the care he takes in serving our customers, our prices are fair. We provide a unique service and most carriers are a drop and go. You do pay a lower prices at first but the various things that can and do occur with that cheaper prices costs you in the long run. He often goes above and beyond. Yes we agree it does sometime take a little longer if you use us but I assure you, you will be glad you did.. Please come back often to check are schedule. I always label it tentative because things change a lot in this business. Not only on our end, but also your end. "Like" us on our Facebook page Goalder Transportation and leave feedback on it if you prefer.

We look forward to hearing and working with you this year....
