I Would Like to Make Your Job Easier

Sometimes don't you just wish you could snap your fingers and Voila! things would be a piece of cake. Sadly, nothing in life comes easy. Everything takes hard work, determination, sometimes a little sweat and heartache.

Most of the times I try and get to e-mails at least once a day. I don't keep "connected" as some might think. David keeps about as connected as a can to a string. Clients think its a joke when I say; he doesn't e-mail, text, or even know how to connect to the Internet.   My go to phrase in speaking or e-mailing to anyone in a nutshell is "he leaves most of the office decision making to me so really the only way to get to him is through me". I have gotten to the point where about every few weeks I take off from technology. No e-mail, phones, Internet etc. It can actually be wonderful. If you haven't tried it do so.

Recently I came across an e-mail that normally I don't even bother with.  Usually for me the e-mail etiquette--if it doesn't include a subject; I won't open it! If the subject line has no subject that is relevant to our business, I won't open it either. Catchy subject lines are a big no-no in my book. This one in particular said "David is this for you ;)". My first thought was it is probably spam and or about male enhancements. Yes, why someone would e-mail such information is beyond me. But, I did open this particular e-mail.

When I cautiously opened and read "I am sure you are busy but if you have a moment to chat about a software that might help your business please give me a call". I read a little further saw that they had an article in:

National Truckin' Magazine published an article about us in their latest issue, you can see it here:

I watched the short overview video but essentially I do my own version that they are offering, probably not as simplified and have for the 20 plus years we have been doing equipment. Yes, if someone tried to step in my shoes they would essentially probably simplify better but "if it's not broke, don't fix it". I did take the time to answer her that if David got the software I would be out of a job, which she in turn sent a reply e-mail


P.S. I found you guys on Facebook, and liked your page, I just had to see you two. Because, my job: sending people emails they don't want is not really easy, and you kinda made my day with your funny remark, thanks :)



So I guess it was a win/win for both of us. We both made each other laugh.


Another tip I would give is if you represent any company and are doing an introduction email, please include the full information. Name, company, phone number and address. I did look up her area code to at least know she was calling from a Texas number.

In today's Internet world an e-mail or text or a contact on other social media can mean the difference between doing business with each other. Sometimes you wonder where people get the information they provide as a teaser in an e-mail also. She indicated that it looked as though we had a strong connection in the trucking industry. Actually, we don't. What we do isn't done by many in the trucking industry. Why? Not sure other than it is hard work! We do have a strong network in the fitness/training/exercise equipment industry and we appreciate them tremendously.

I guess for start-up trucking companies this maybe the software for you. All you can do is try it. It just won't make our job easier.

I will be a positive business owner and forward the contact information: sonja@trucktrack.net.

If you request duplicates later I indicated you will be charged a fee. The policy was posted on right side bar of blog as of January 2014 and is still posted for your reference.

How Do You Put a Dollar Amount on Services?

David and I (well mostly me) felt the need to address a topic that has been coming up often lately. Last year was one of our busiest years when it came to facility relocation's either from just down the block to across the country. It usually becomes a big consideration when moving as to the costs both to us and to the customers moving.

Most equipment we have moved in the past 20 years are manufactured to work for many years. The high dollar paid for the machines sometimes cannot be comprehended by most people but those in the fitness/wellness industry make a living using them and also to help others to live a healthier and more productive lifestyle. Of course all of this comes at a cost.

Our goal has always been to take just as good care of these machines when we move them around the country or around your personal home. Of course this comes at a price. Possibly an amount you hadn't intended or think may be too much.

I can remember many instances in our history where to try and cut costs clients have wanted to save money by doing it themselves, only to later tell us, "Gee I wish I would have just spent the extra money for you to do it for me".

The cost to your body that isn't familiar with the art of moving can take its toll (medical expenses). The mileage, gas and other unexpected costs to rent a truck, and your time to do the same things we do we have heard time and time again isn't what they thought it would be. 40 years of experience in freight, moving, equipment relocation is the best experience we can give you.

Many attempt to include the cost of purchasing the machine and the cost of shipping into whether the machine is worth it.  Of course the importance of the machine to the individual usually outweighs how it may get to them but usually the first thing people think about is cutting the shipping costs down. It is understandable but often times not realistic.

I guess its all in how you look at it. Money is tight for everyone in today's economy. Everyone cuts costs where they can, even us.  Make the whole experience as easy as possible. 
The peace of mind, and correctly working equipment can outweigh things you might not have even thought about.

The old saying, "Do it Right the First Time, You Will be Glad You Did". Takes on a whole different meaning.
