Started Workng Towards a Driving Job

I got started on this project after I ran in to a guy I used to know. I was walking out of this club one night and I saw him standing next to one of those limo vans. I guess it was one that you can squeeze about three dozen people in one of those, although this one probably only held about thirty people. At any rate I stopped and talked to him. He was working for this place called Paradise limo in Toronto and he seemed really happy. I know that he usually hated his job as long as I knew him, but of course I am not quite sure that this would be for me. For one thing this job is probably going to require you to be the one sober person who has to deal with a lot of people who are very far from sober. I get along with people who are drinking, but only when I am drinking.

Most people do not realize it, but drunk people can be really annoying. I have a bit of a bad temper when people are acting dumb, but that is fine when I can walk away from them. (more…)

Why Extruded Polystyrene is Good for Vehicles

When I first heard about impact absorbing materials, I have to be honest and admit I had no idea what it was. I decided to do some research on it since my son needed help with a school project, and I am really grateful that I did. I learned that it is a foam that is used almost always in cars. While there can be other uses for it, almost everyone in the industry knows of it because it is used in vehicles as another level of safety. There are a number of reasons why this particular matter is used.

The main reason is because it is so strong. One would associate something strong with being heavy, but it is actually very lightweight. What happens is when the vehicle is involved in an accident, the foam absorbs a good bit of the energy, which results in the passengers in the vehicle sustaining fewer injuries, if any at all.

Looking at the Cost of a Special Vehicle

We started thinking about this the other day. It was part of a promotion where we were going to help out a disabled veteran by giving away a modified vehicle. That is not so difficult to find, but obviously there is a demand for a dual controlled vehicle hire in this country now. You have a lot of people coming back from the war zones in bad shape and they are not able to operate a normal vehicle. Obviously the big thing is really being able to get in and out of the vehicle for a lot of these guys. (more…)

Commercial Use of Citroen Berlingo Vans

I make deliveries of the products my family and I produce at our shop. We have a small business where we take fresh ingredients we grow and prepare and bake them into fresh pastries we deliver every day to restaurants and some stores. We have a limited production run every day, and I use a Citroen Berlingo to deliver them all. We work in shifts. Part of my family works daylight on the farm to grow and prepare the ingredients. Things like the flour from our grains as well as cheese from milk from our cows. The other part is up before midnight to begin making a new batch of pastries that I begin deliveries of very early in the morning. Fresh every day is our goal. We do not want customers to have day old product even though it is still very delicious.

This limits our business to a range that I can travel in a day. However, I have another family member who is now a driver. He will be getting his own Citroen Berlingo van to make deliveries now. (more…)
