The prefabricated building was a 10’ x 14’ x 8’ equipment shelter. The shipment started out as many other shipments do, with the equipment shelter being tied down to the 20’ “Hot Shot” trailer via our 6000 pound tie down/lifting rings. The trailer’s hitch mechanism broke, the chains snapped off, and the trailer separated from the truck. The equipment shelter, along with the trailer, after nosediving into the ground, careened off the road and landed on its side in a ditch by the side of the highway.
“The durable equipment shelter sustained minimal damage, which was easily repaired.” Shelter Works’ Director of Sales and Operations John Miller explained, “We repaired the minimal damage, buffed it out, cleaned it up, re-inspected it and had the building back on another delivery truck within a day and a half.”
