    Very excited to see this vendor come aboard, Nathan Hutchinson and his Triple Diamond Transport is a welcome addition to the Binder Planet's family of vendors. I think he is the first of his kind to enter the transport market and lets make them welcome.

    Well of course I am - i'm just going to have to let my customers know that my trips all revolve around the Godfather's schedule - all good!

    Anyhoo - here is a short synopsis of why i'm here.

    2004: obtained 2 Scout II's (trip to Wilmington, DE) off E-bay for $50 for scout axles to put under my CJ-7. IH bug bit me.
    2004-2007: traveled here and there around East coast obtaining numerous IH's which formed my graveyard on my property. Started small salvage business in process - JP Scout Salvage, Inc. (Sold CJ-7 around 2005 or so:D)
    2007-2009: obtained CDL to drive OTR - JP Scout went by wayside - fiddled here and there.
    2009-2012: got off road and worked for construction company to "get by"
    Today: starting up this wonderful business to help out fellow IH'ers and other individuals needing vehicles and general commodities transported.

    That's the short of it. Several people on the board have utilized my services in the past, and I pride myself on going the extra mile to take care of someone's stuff (even if it is a rusted piece of old iron). Up until now this has been a service that I have done when the need has arisen from friends, family, or club members (Founding member of SEBA). I thoroughly enjoy the adventure of grabbing vehicles that have been in numerous states of disrepair and saving them from the clutches of the iron claw or magnet. I'm looking forward to providing this community that same service.

    Just a quick note, my MC and DOT#'s are applied for, so therefore I am waiting 30 days for everything to be official. That window is given in order for me to obtain insurance and take care of other documentation that is needed. I currently am running just a single car hauler, but in the near future I plan on having the following trailers available:
    2/3 car hauler
    enclosed single
    enclosed multi
    My goals are big, so bare with the growth. I will work with you in any way possible to ensure that whatever it is you need transported will be done in the most efficient manner. I'm super excited to get this ball rolling so hit me up with what you have.

    Another thing to note about my business is that I will help with extraction of rigs, if necessary. I have had my share of IH extractions and am not scared to help in the involvement of such.

    If I think of anything else to add, I will. Website is bare bones at the moment, so I will add as I go. Thanks for allowing me to serve the community that has been instrumental in my IH habit.

    Gotta give thanks to the following people for being a crucial part of this business start-up too:
    My girlfriend Tasha for supporting me in this endeavor
    Randy Groenhof(Mr. GRC himself for help with the name)
    Jamie Regier(aka the Godfather for being a huge excuse for hauling IH's)
    Gary Barker(for being my number 2 man for alot of IH deals)
    Luke Brockman(for pushing my old truck to the limits to see how well I can strap stuff down)
    Bruce Shealy (for setting me up on the BP)
    Mike Moore (for all my current and future promotional items)
    and pretty much all of SEBA in general.

    You forgot to add the blacked out Crewcab Loadstar with the Detroit powerplant, stretched, sitting on bags, with a front tag that says move over!

    Scout II for me. Possibly non-op, possibly running. We haven't gotten that far, yet. :oops:
    I also may have a ride for it already. We're in the preliminary planning stages, can you tell?:D

    I have been searching for some rust free iron and there seems like an abundance of IH there that looks favorable to me. I am still in the looking stages though.

    They aren't illegal to MAKE...what you do with them on your end is totally up to you. Matter of fact, that has been proven in our local court as far as apportioned license plates.;) Er...so I've heard.:yes:
