1 + 1 = 60,000. Math a VC Understands.

How does one unique new piece of hardware added to one other unique new piece of hardware allow someone to win freight and logistics?

One QuickLoadz.

It has to be QuickLoadz. No other company in the world makes a trailer that can automatically move loaded sea shipping containers.

Plus one autonomous truck.

Lots of choices coming up—maybe ten different companies doing this.

Equals 60,000 pounds of merchandise moved from anywhere to anywhere without anyone touching it.

That’s a revolution. Win freight, or watch someone else do it.

Watch here how QuickLoadz changes the world of freight and logistics:

QuickLoadz Buys Penske Fleet Trucks

QuickLoadz has bought used Penske fleet trucks to turn into QuickLoadz Super Bed trucks.

Two of the Penske trucks.
Two of the Penske trucks QuickLoadz purchased at auction.

I got a really good deal on 2014 Penske box trucks that were coming out of their fleet. I bought all of them. These trucks are all in great shape. They have around 180,000 miles, Cummins diesels, automatic transmissions, fully working 26,000 pound GVW, so no CDL required. We even have the oil and fluid tests on every truck.

That means I can put brand new 2020 20k Super Beds on these trucks and offer you for the ridiculously low price of $68,000. Some of these Super Beds will be done with Hot Dip Galvanizing for $4,000 extra, some with paint.

We have the only system designed specifically to move containers.

QuickLoadz has automatic hydraulic locks, a built-in rear view camera, and remote control that works from the driver’s smartphone; the whole system is so automated you really don’t have to get out of the truck to load a container, all standard.

Of course it can be used like a tow truck, an equipment trailer, and a flatbed. The bed itself slides out like a rollback tow truck to give a low loading angle when you need it. One of my favorite features of the truck version is the 50° tilt angle. The tilt not only gives you a dump truck, but it allows you to get really close to a container and still grab it when there is not much room.

Place an order for the 20k Super Bed at (888) 304-3946 ext 0 and it’ll come on one of these trucks.

It also shows using the hooks as quick chain pulls if you need to pull a container in position to grab it.

This is our contractor video to show some of the versatility:

The Self Cleaning Truck Bed. Put Away The Broom.

Half the time you pick up and drop off a container, you cover your truck bed with gravel and mud. Really, to avoid that DOT ticket and the angry driver with the broken windshield, you should sweep it off every time.

But let’s face it.

It’s hard to be motivated when it’s freezing, or worse, almost freezing and raining. Motivating a driver to get out on a slippery deck and sweep it off is even harder.

The self cleaning truck bed

QuickLoadz Super Bed models tilt up to 50°. You load your container at a gentle 15°, but you can slide the bed all the way in and tilt 50° for those tight spaces. The hidden benefit behind this free dump truck is that the bed can pretty much clean itself of loose gravel and dirt.

The 40k Super Bed Loading a Container

I not only design and build trailers, I deliver containers. I’m making this easy on myself so that everyone who has a QuickLoadz will have it easy for them too.

Do You Want To Dig A Hole With A Shovel Or A Trackhoe?

I was talking to someone on Facebook who insisted that he could build a trailer like QuickLoadz for half the price. Then we got into some details. He would put on a smaller engine, lighter axles, a winch instead of dual chain drives, no LiftWedges, no sliding axles, no smartphone controlled hydraulics, no rearview camera, no hydraulic locks.

“You don’t need all of that stuff to move empty containers. You over built it.”

It is true that you don’t need all of that stuff to move containers. You don’t need a pickup truck to move drywall, you can tie it to the top of your car.

But if you want to move loaded containers, you at least need a way to get the container all the way onto the trailer bed, and therefore a way to push the container off of the trailer bed. Winches don’t push.

If you want to use winches, chains, and straps, get out and pull start some small engine, get in and out of the cab 10 times while backing up, get in and out of the cab six times while loading (it is hard to steer a truck in the cab while holding down a hydraulic control lever on the trailer; you have to have especially long arms), throw straps over the container… you don’t need all of the stuff that QuickLoadz has. We didn’t invent moving containers. You just need to be a skilled driver, with a good back, good luck, and 30 minutes to spare.

Or, you could use QuickLoadz and take a skilled, 30 minute, difficult, dangerous job and turn it into three minutes of pushing buttons on a smartphone.

A shovel is not the same as a trackhoe.

A trackhoe is not “overbuilt.” If you dig a lot of holes—and big ones—and you do it all the time, you buy a trackhoe. If you dig a couple of fence posts or a garden, you buy a shovel.

One is professional, one is a hobby. Which are you?

The Perfect Contractor Truck

I wanted the perfect contractor truck. I built a container mover that’s also a tow truck, flat bed, and dump truck all in one. The Swiss Army Knife of trucks.

We have the only system designed specifically to move containers. QuickLoadz has automatic hydraulic locks, a built-in rearview camera, and remote control that works on the driver’s smartphone. The whole system is so automated you don’t really have to get out of the truck—all standard.

This is the unit Pac-Van is ordering for their 20′ container deliveries.

Of course it can be used like a tow truck, move equipment, and carry pallets like a flatbed. The bed itself slides out like a rollback tow truck to give a low loading angle when you need it. One of my favorite features of the truck version is the 50° tilt angle. The tilt not only gives you a dump truck, but allows you to get really close to a container and grab it when there is not much room.

This video shows grabbing a container without any room. It also shows using the hooks as quick chain pulls if you need to pull a container in position to grab it.

This is our contractor video that shows some of the versatility:

This video shows how you can use the tow bar to unload a bed full of pallets:

There are a bunch of videos on our YouTube channel showing how it works, how it loads in gravel, snow, ice.

This is actually one of my favorite trucks.

?

We were always getting calls from the oil and gas guys who wanted a container full of pipe in some awful location. So we put a QuickLoadz bed on a Military M939 5-ton 6×6 truck. We have gotten calls from tow companies for it as a ditch / off road tow truck.

Move The Entire Garage To The Site

The portable, lockable, $600 skid-steer garage.

When I move my skid steer to a job, I just pick up my skid steer container rigged with spare parts, oil, spare tires, and tracks with my QuickLoadz trailer and drop it on the job site.

Every night I put away my expensive skid steer into its own portable garage, locked up tight. No snow, no ice, no fuel theft.

I don’t have to keep my expensive skid steer inside back at the yard, I don’t even keep it in the fence. It has its own solid steel garage.

Same with the baby track-hoe. Same with the little man lift. Same with the air compressor and jackhammer. You get the idea.

Each 20 foot container cost me $600. Wind and water tight. $3.75/sq. ft., about what the concrete just for a slab would cost, let alone a building.

The QuickLoadz 24k Super 20 Loading a Container from the Ground

All possible because my QuickLoadz trailer can not only move my equipment, pick up and self unload pallets, but move containers loaded with my skid steer—or whatever I need.

Buy a QuickLoadz trailer. Save big money.

You need an equipment trailer anyway, why not buy the one that saves you big $$?

Trucking Apocalypse Continues

FreightWaves article from this week:

Trucking apocalypse continues: California truckload carrier latest victim

“Owner Colby Bell cited a tough freight market,”
“Long haul trucking spot rates are at their lowest levels in the past few years, off by over 30 percent since last years peak,”

Breaking News: 400-truck LTL carrier suddenly shuts down

600 employee LTL carrier shut down abruptly on July 11th.

Flatbed carriers are closing. Long haul full load carriers are closing less than truck load carriers are closing. Rates are falling.

No wonder Freightwaves is calling it the Trucking Apocalypse.

Moving loaded sea shipping containers from the ground level is getting to $7/mile. And there simply are not enough companies that can do it. Really they should charge more.

With QuickLoadz, you can do what no one else can do.

Move loaded sea shipping containers from anywhere to anywhere and charge what you want.

With QuickLoadz you also get a flatbed, you also get a tilt trailer equipment mover.

Buy a QuickLoadz. Invest in yourself, invest in the future.

Instant Increase In Business

One of our large mobile storage customers had an instant increase in business by moving loaded containers for contractors.

QuickLoadz’s customer is now charging extra to move loaded containers for contractors from job site to job site.

“It has an added advantage. Before, contractors would empty out a container as soon as they could so it would go off rent. Now they keep them on rent, even if the container isn’t going to another job site immediately. We have seen our contractor rentals almost double.
“With the QuickLoadz Super Bed we are renting out containers as dumpsters to our contractors. We already have the customer base, containers are cheaper, last longer, no tarping, contractors say they don’t have problems with people dumping tires in their dumpster. All around a win. But we couldn’t do it until we had a QuickLoadz Super Bed.”
The 40k Super Bed Loading a Container
“Every job site has one of our 20′ containers as a giant billboard.”

Another Record Year For Natural Disasters

Containers are perfect for disaster relief, but how do you move them?

Line of FEMA Trucks Backed Up

Weather related natural disasters are increasing. Containers are perfect for natural disaster relief. Containers are durable, cheap, 90% of the world’s freight travels in them. They don’t care about rain or snow. Containers full of relief supplies can be shipped anywhere in the world rapidly.

But how do you move them? What do you do if you don’t have any warehouses or loading docks to unload them?

People Unloading Supplies from a Container Sitting on the Ground

After Hurricane Harvey, I used a QuickLoadz to drop containers full of relief supplies right in the neighborhoods that needed them. Instant warehouse and ground level supply distribution.

Be ready with the only system in the world that allows you to move loaded sea shipping containers without any other equipment, the system that allows you to drop sea shipping containers on the ground for easy access. And lets you access the contents at a loading dock.

FEMA is going to need this. USAID is going to need this. Walmart, Amazon, everyone is going to need the ability to quickly move containers full of merchandise without loading docks, without cranes, without other equipment.

Buy a QuickLoadz and fill a need that no one else can in an emergency.

You won’t be waiting for an emergency to keep that QuickLoadz busy.

Our current customers are so busy that they have asked me to stop referring jobs to them, but you will be ready to drop relief supplies when the emergency comes.

Watch to see how QuickLoadz changes the world of freight:
