It’s been a while since I’ve updated this website but even though the oil and gas industry has slowed down I’ve still managed to stay busy.  I get calls regularly from companies needing a reliable person for a hot shot job.  As I’ve said before, I’ve traveled all through Alberta as a Land Agent for 40 years and there’s probably not a better person to deliver your product.

If you are in need of having your product or part delivered right away and you want to know it will arrive on-time and safely then please give me a call at 403-860-0077.

 

Lots of things have changed in the hot shot business in the past few months with oil being low.  Not very many companies can afford or justify using our services in these hard times.  As a result companies are dropping like flies.  They just can’t afford to stay in business with such little work.  I get calls literally everyday from drivers and driver/owners looking for work.  I try to help out as many as possible but opportunities are limited.

Recently I was on a job out by Lloydminister and I received a call to go from Calgary to Ft. McMurray.  All my drivers were busy so I called a young guy looking for work to pick up the load and meet me in Vegerville.  He was very excited to get some work and he was right on time, packin a great big smile.  That smile sure helped to make my difficult day seem a little brighter.

Even though times are tough I’m here for the ‘long haul’… I’m not going anywhere!  So call me if you need a delivery during these slow times or when things get crazy busy again (and they always do).  I’ve been in the oil patch for 35 years so I’ve seen it happen a few times and it always turns around sooner or later.  So I’ll be waiting for your call and until then ‘happy truckin’.

Hot Shot Courier Job Calgary to LloydI was just getting in from the cold, snowy day after plowing the roads for hours. It had been a busy day with driving into Calgary to watch my grandson play hockey to plowing the roads for the 20th time this winter (most snow we’ve ever seen), to making sure the horses were fed.

As I was coming inside from the cold I was thinking about how nice it would be to sit down in my nice cozy chair with my wife next to me and watch a movie together. After all, it was a Saturday night and the last week had been so hectic.

That’s when my phone starting to ring…

An oil and gas company needed me to deliver a gas detector up by Frog Lake (about one hour from Lloydminster). They said it was urgent and needed to be there by early morning.

I told them I was their man and would make sure it was done. So I hopped into my truck at 8:00 pm on a snowy, cold winters night and drove into Calgary to pick up the part. There were no delays and the company was extremely happy when I delivered the gas detector to them early the next morning.

I received a phone call from a company needing drill bits delivered to Moosomin, Saskatchewan. They told me it was urgent and needed to get it done right away. So, within about one hour I had picked up the package and drove straight to Moosomin on the weekend. They were so happy when I arrived they asked me to go back to Calgary and pick up some other parts and have them delivered to the same location!

Of course, I told them I’d get it done. So I drove all the way back to Calgary, picked up the other parts and delivered them to Moosomin. I drove 36 hours in about 4 days.

The company that hired me for this hot shot job knew they could rely on me and I made sure it was done right and on time.

To be honest, I really enjoy doing this. My entire career has been spent driving and there’s no other place I’d rather be than in my truck stopping in at every A&W along the way. I took some pictures of my trip and recorded a quick video:

I enjoyed giving a little report on my last job so thought I’d do it again. This time I got a phone call while I was in Three Hills to deliver a parcel from Calgary to a oil and gas well site near Drayton Valley.

I picked up the package around noon in Calgary and had it at the well site earlier than expected. The company who hired me was very pleased. I shot a little video while I was on the way to Drayton Valley:

And here’s a picture of the well site location I delivered the parcel to

If you need anything delivered in Alberta or Saskatchewan or British Columbia give me a call at 403-860-0077.
