Buying a Used Vehicle

Welcome to my website. My name is Frances Reed. If you’re considering buying a used car, you are in the right place. I recently had my first experience with purchasing a used car and want to share some tips I learned along the way. When I began my search, the important things were color, comfort, and low mileage. I ended up with a green vehicle (which isn't on my favorite color list,) it has over 150,000 miles driven, but it is comfortable. I was very fortunate and had a friend who’s a mechanic come with me to test drive vehicles. Tip number one: be sure you have a mechanic check out vehicles before you buy. I hope I can offer you some valuable information here.

Move Securely From Job To Job - Options In Towing Heavy Equipment

by Connor Ferguson

If you own and operate your own construction company, then you understand the satisfaction that comes from seeing equipment you own completing serious jobs on a wide variety of sites. You also likely understand the frustration in repositioning that equipment and guaranteeing that you can always get the pieces you need where they need to be when you need them to be there.

Below, you'll find a guide to some of your options in heavy equipment towing and movement. With this information in mind, you can move forward on a much easier path of equipment transportation, guaranteeing you the freedom to bid for jobs and the security of knowing you'll always be able to reach them.

Flatbed Hauling

Perhaps the most common method of long distance equipment transportation, your towing service will be able to offer you a wide variety of flatbed options to guarantee your equipment movement. A simple flatbed will likely be sufficient, but you should be sure you have the tools necessary to finish the job.

Make sure that you provide accurate weight measurements to your hauling company for transporting your equipment. This will guarantee that the right size truck is used. You should also be sure that you have sufficient tools at your job site for unloading the equipment, as otherwise you could be stuck with costly and lengthy delays.

Street Towing

When many people think of a towing service, they think of a truck pulling an elevated car through the street. While this is sometimes not an option for heavy equipment, it can be used on short trips or when the equipment in question is relatively lightweight.

Before you have your equipment towed over the street, make sure it's properly secured. Often this will involve preparing both the gear box and the tires for being pulled by an external force, and working with the towing company (such as Seminole Towing) to ensure that their security features don't damage your equipment.

Specialty Trailers

Especially large or oddly sized pieces of equipment will require a specially formulated shipping plan. Fortunately, many towing services are prepared to meet these needs when the time arises. Specialty shipping containers exist that will fully protect your equipment and guarantee that it can be hauled from place to place in a timely manner. It's important to remember that these shipping operations often require special permits, so be sure that you coordinate with your towing service to guarantee your hauling operation is completely legitimate.
