    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?

    So you don't even own a little dump? Everything gets delivered?

    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.

    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.
