What Can We Haul For YOU?

We can haul your Equipment and Cargo for less than it would cost you to do it yourself:

As a business owner, you're good at assessing costs. So this exercise will be easy to do. We're going to use some round numbers, but you can write your own numbers down, if you want.

Let's assume that you are a contractor, and you want to increase your productivity with a Reach Forklift. In order to get it from A to B, you have two options.

  • Option one is buy your own truck, or Truck and Trailer, large enough to haul a Reach Forklift. You could certainly spend more, but for round number's sake, let's say you find a good option for $100,000. Payments are $2000 a month. Wow! You got a great interest rate! So $24,000 for the year.
  • Commercial Insurance on it, is going to be a big variable, but let's assume that your driver has a great driving record, and you can get by on a small policy.  Again round numbers: $10,000 for the year.
  • You need a driver. With a CDL. Decent CDL drivers get paid on average $40k to $60k. Let's go with a "bargain basement" driver at $30,000 a year.
  • Trucks need fuel. Big trucks get 4 to 8 MPG. Fuel costs are rising, but let's say it's at $2.50 a gallon. They have to fill up once a week, because they are also driving it to the store. And to lunch. And somebody needed a 1/2inch drillbit, so off they went in the big truck. It's got a 100 gallon tank. That's $250.00 a week. Wait. Round numbers. $200 a week. That's $10,400... I mean $10,000 a year in fuel.
  • Tires. Even if you don't put a lot of miles on your truck, tires dry rot and heavy truck tires that are dry rotted are dangerous. So you have to buy new tires every other year or so. Rear 22.5 tires are around $400 each. There are 8 back there. That's $3200. Those floatation tires on the front are $700 each! YEOW! So, that's $1400 for the front. Total is $4600, plus mounting and balancing, but we won't worry about that, in fact, let's round it to $4000, and that's two years worth, so we get $2000 annually. Let's pretend that you didn't get a trailer.
  • You're going to have to maintain the truck. Oil changes. Your driver backed into something and ripped the front bumper off. That chipped windshield will get you a ticket. Brakes. (My last brake job job for the rear of the truck, was over $2 GRAND.) DEF. Don't get me started on DEF. But, don't worry about any more expenses. Those are plenty. 

Got the calculator out, yet?

  • $24,000
  • $10,000
  • $30,000
  • $10,000
  • $2,000

That total comes to: $76,000 a year, to move your equipment. Give or take. (Mostly "give".)

But, hey. Maybe you found an older used truck. Maybe your brother-in-law is gonna drive the truck for you. Lets HALF that number. 

$38,000 a year! What a BARGAIN! Right?! If you move your equipment once a month, that's $3166.66 a month. Sorry, no round number there.

Option Two: Call Grant Industrial Transportation. Book the move. You get the truck, the driver, the Insurance, the fuel, the tires, the oil changes, the truck washes, and we get out and LOOK before we back up! :-)

A local haul in town will run you around $125. Average in the Middle Georgia Area is around $250.  

How many jobs do you have lined up? Let's keep it simple and stick with 12 jobs this year. Each GIT move averages $250 from job to job. That's $3,000. Annually. And you only pay, when you use our services. (So, if you were going to do 6 jobs around Middle Georgia this coming year, our services would only average $1,500. FOR THE YEAR.) It's a good thing, we've got so many customers. :-)

That's why we say:

We can move your equipment for less than you can move it yourself.

The only question left, is:

What Can We Haul For YOU? 

Sorry, this was a long read, BUT LOOK AT HOW MUCH MONEY YOU'RE GOING TO SAVE! :-)
