Here's a pic of my rig while delivering a building in Iowa last winter. Below zero wind chill that day. I had 36' poles on the forklift.

 

The company I work for sells and delivers buildings just about everywhere east of the Rockies.  If you bought a pole barn on the internet, there's a good chance it came from us. We sell to and deliver buildings for 7 internet companies.

 

These days I have a dedicated run to a dealer in Rensselaer Falls NY to start every week, then usually go to MO, IA, MN, or WI. I have delivered as far away as 300 miles east of Maine (Nova Scotia).

 

I don't have a good pic of my truck, but it looks just like the one in the second pic. My son and I have the only black trucks in the fleet.

Hmm I make a 45 mile commute to the NW side of Des Moines every day, It is not at all unusual to see loads like that.

We had 36' floor joists delivered on a straight truck for the last job. The driver had them hanging out over the cab. It sure makes the tailgater look small swinging them around.

3500 miles round trip. They've been putting that run on an outside carrier for several months.

I'm sure there are several here, like me, that are interested in a pole barn. I'd like one that can hold 40 GTs(24' x 40'). What would that cost delivered to CT? I have forks for my loader. Stay safe on our crazy roads. Good Luck, Rick

I work for Graber Post Buildings in Montgomery, IN. They only wholesale to dealers outside about a 100 mile radius.

 

Look at DIY Pole Barns, APB Pole Barns, Pole Barns Direct, and Usa Pole Barns. I can't think right now what the others are.

We go through 2 or 3 thousand tons of metal per month. A truckload goes to the scrap yard every week or two.
