I'm on my way, I'm making it....
BIG TIME, I've got to make it show Yeah
Big Time, so much larger than life
If this post could have a soundtrack, it would be Peter Gabriel's "Big Time" And you are welcome!!! Because those of you who know the song will have a hard time not singing a few lines over the next 24 hours. Damn it! I hate when a song gets stuck in my head like that. Once again, you are welcome.
There is a natural progression to any car-hauler's career. After learning the basics and getting a good feel for the equipment, it is only natural to want to see just how much you can fit on your rack.
I took the first few months getting comfortable and developing my rhythm. Loading new cars is almost routine at this point. KIA, Honda and BMWs are pretty standard on my truck, but it is when I am sent to pick up some auction freight that things can get a little challenging. The buyer that I haul for likes to purchase big units and you better believe I was intimidated by some of my loads. It starts with a simple F150 or 1500 ( I forgot how big pickup trucks feel to me), and after I realize they go on the truck with no difficulty, I start to get a little excited about the F250 or whatever big units that will appear on my next load. After several months, I have found myself eager to load the big stuff...
Here are a few of my bigger vehicles and/or loads.
|First time to stack trucks on the tractor|
|First Big Load at Adesa Long Island.|
|Ford Excursion... Just because I wanted to see if it would fit.|
|Sprinter Vans heading for Canada|
|F450... And I needed a step ladder just to get in this one.|
