BTM Machinery: A Port in the (Winter) Storm Refurbished Heavy Equipment Makes a Difference in Northeast Snow Storms

It’s January 2014, the weather is in the news, and BTM Machinery is right there with it. The New Year got off to a bitter start with a Polar Vortex that delivered a one-two punch called Hercules and Ion.

You hear on TV that somebody’s about to get hit with two feet of snow, and you know that phone is going to ring. He’s going to need heavy machinery - dozers, loaders, trucks – and he’ll need it now.

(PRWEB) January 17, 2014

While these latest storms are particularly harsh, it is really just a new chapter in an age-old story: in the North, winter brings snow, often a lot of it.

Contractors need heavy equipment to remove it so that the first responders, utility repairmen and milk trucks can get through. And that’s where BTM Machinery comes in.

Rewind to December 15, 2013 when the Northeast was pounded by up to 18 inches of snow that canceled flights, closed schools and disrupted the shopping season.

The storm, which began in the Midwest and hit the Northeast the hardest, dropped the most snow - 18 inches - on Woodford, Vermont…nearly 17 inches were reported in York County, Maine, and 14 inches in Albany County, New York. - USA Today

BTM Machinery: Proactive in the Pinch
"And so it begins," says BTM Machinery founder and CEO Blake Thornton. "You hear on TV that somebody’s about to get hit with two feet of snow, and you know that phone is going to ring. He’s going to need heavy machinery - dozers, loaders, trucks – and he’ll need it now. In fact, the ability to get it done now is probably written in his contract with the County."

For BTM Machinery the key is to be proactive. Not waiting for that phone call, BTM reps were already scouring their vast database, locating their refurbished heavy equipment and gaming their battle plan.

The BTM Advantage
"And there’s our advantage," says Thornton. “BTM Machinery is everywhere. We have thousands of contacts and dozens of machines in the US and Canada. Wherever that storm hits, we have you covered. And we’re not going to hold you over the barrel while we figure out the dollars and cents - there will be a time for that later. In a situation like that, time isn't money; time can mean lives at stake."

BTM Machinery: Help is On the Way
And so, practically within hours after the December 15 storm, tractor trailers were loaded and on the road. In total, BTM Machinery shipped four Caterpillar 980G and two Cat 966G refurbished wheel loaders to contractors in upstate New York to take part in snow clearing efforts.

"Those beasts hit the ground running, working around the clock in the cold, the wet and the salt," says Thornton. "But our customers know that every piece of refurbished heavy equipment BTM sells is like new, and ready to take the abuse."
