Some Friday nights bring more excitement than others! We were recently requested to assist a local manufacturing company in Pleasant Prairie transport product from their facility to a local warehouse for storage and shipping. We were handling up to 250,000 pounds per day as most loads were over 40,000 pounds each!
Flat Tires Happen to Everyone – Even Your Movers!
On the last load George dropped the trailer and was on his way back into our facility when the right front steer tire failed. It is not often a steer tire goes; this was the first he had ever experienced. The tire actually came completely off the rim before he was able to stop on the side of the road. Steve from our shop came out to rescue George. The two worked together better than any NASCAR pit crew, only with manual tools and large pipe for leverage!
