2010 silverado 1500 ext cab 8'
1997 e350 box truck 16' box drw
2003 box truck 10' box srw

i love box trucks for jobsites. im definitely goin to buy 1-2 more this spring.

might upgrade to a 2500 dodge crew cab and a 2500 dodge regular cab also for driving around "looking cool " trucks

we dont have lettering and stuff. the way I get jobs its not necessary and id end up with people calling me that I wouldnt work for.


how bout you?

everything gets delivered by triaxle dump or semi flatbed.

im going to buy a ford 8000 or 9000 rollback truck.

i have a part time CDL driver- sometimes I rent a 26' stake bed truck for him to drive block. we overload that thing by like 10K.

but my suppliers block truck can only take 40K of block and a semi direct from oberfields can take 50K so now I get stuff on semis. - this is why we rent telehandlers to unload- hence i need a 10k # telehandler

Im actually trying to start buying block direct and cut out the middle man.

i want the rollback truck + a 20yd dumpster to start collecting free horse and cow manure and composting it this summer so I can quit wasting 2-3g a site on topsoil. looking at screeners.

When you have systems, you have control.

cant all be 85grand!

medexpress was my first ever commercial client and i love them to death. i will always do a smaller scale project for them. roses and bayberry on patio will look nice in spring

box trucks-stay on jobsites we use them like big toolboxes so crew has tools. I am not always on jobsites so they need a truck to get materials+ tools to do work.

will try and get pix over the holiday! merry christmas!

"Merry Christmas" I like that. "Happy holidays" pisses me off actually. Looks like you run a tight ship.
