Summer 2016 – Part V

The Removal of the Double Wide Mobile Home from our Property

The friendly team of Hammer Pilot Car Services and R.J. Fisher Transport displayed their expertise last month, when they came to jack up the two halves of our trailer, put them on wheels and hauled them away all on the same day. They made the entire operation look like as if it was a piece of cake. Yet, the video shows that only with their experience in moving buildings, hard work and team spirit was it possible to remove the mobile home out of its tight spot. A neighbor’s new building and huge cedar trees less than 3 meters away had to be navigated around. Amanda of the Hammer Pilot Car Services helped keep up the men’s morale by her uplifting humor and by providing hot lunch with fried bratwurst right at the work site. Three cheers and tons of praise on a job well done!

    Hallo Peter,
    das Video ist höchst interessant und informativ!
    Ihr habt eine “dufte Truppe” gehabt. Man merkt, dass es in Kanada alles ein bißchen anders zugeht, mehr Ruhe und ein Zusammenhalt ist zu spüren.
    Der Ahornsaft zaubert auch ganz schön kräftige Gestalten, denen ich zutrauen würde, das Home auch auf ihrem Rücken zu transportieren!
    In Deutschland wäre das Arbeiten so unmöglich gewesen, siehe Arbeitsschutz, “Helmtragepflicht”, “Aufenthalt unter schwebenden Lasten”…Das soll aber beileibe keine Kritik sein!!!
    Hat der Nachbar ein bißchen Angst gehabt? Die Dame in der Truppe hatte die Kollegen auch gut im Griff.
    Beim Vorbeifahren habe ich erstmal eine Vorstellung von der Länge des Mobil Home’s bekommen, das müssen ja ca. 11m sein? Das ganze alte Anwesen ca. 25m Länge?
    Nun auch hier alles Gute beim Aufbau des neuen Hauses !!!
    Dein Dieter
