William Thomas / January 2021

A client had just purchased a 2012 Peterbilt 587 semi truck and wanted it transported from Bakersfield, CA to Boise, ID. David Jones, one of our top specialists, was the one to process the tractor trailer transport. He started by working on the paperwork to have it shipped without any issues. He then fully insured the 2012 Peterbilt 587. After considering the specifications of the 2012 Peterbilt 587 semi truck, he decided that the 20000 pounds 20L 8W 11H heavy load was best transported on a drop deck trailer. Our specialists are able to choose the most suitable trailer for your heavy equipment based on their specifications. It’s important to keep in mind that trailers have different functions  and capacities. Therefore, it’s always important to leave it to a professional to help you choose the most convenient ones.

With everything ready, David Jones contacted one of our professional drivers to load the semi truck in Bakersfield, CA. Our drivers are professionals with years of experience. When he got there, he carefully loaded the 2012 Peterbilt 587 and secured it on the trailer with some chains. He later called David Jones who dispatched the shipment. From Bakersfield, CA to Boise, ID, he decided to use route CA 99 N, I-80 E and US I-95 N. Our drivers always know the most suitable routes to use.

Along the way,  he constantly checked if the chains were loose and adjusted them when he needed to. Chains will sometimes become loose because of the vigorous movement. If not adjusted, this is dangerous and can easily cause an accident.

After fourteen and half hours of being on the road, our driver was finally at the drop off location. He carefully unloaded the 2012 Peterbilt 587 and it was in the very condition he had picked it up in. We take care of our clients’ cargo until it’s safely delivered.
