Re: Delivery Drivers

I don't get stuff delivered much but every time I have they used the Moffet style forklift. For my residential projects they seem to be able to get the material anywhere I ask and when I built my house they could get through the areas of slop and spot material anywhere the crews needed.

Re: Delivery Drivers

We refer to them as hitchhikers.
I'd love to replace all the dumbness in this room but the budget is tight and the stupidity is plentiful!

Re: Delivery Drivers

Some bad ass driving, but looks like a pain in the ass way to unload.

Well, I guess it's better than hand unloading....
