I pride myself as the best Teamster driver at The Price Erecting Company of Milwaukee,Wisconsin. Take a look at our website www.priceerecting.com and some of the pictures maybe interesting. The company has been around for 86 years and hopefully more to come. We are the best machinery movers in the business,and our business takes us to each and every state working with companys like Miller Brewery,Briggs and Stratton,to the retracable roof of Miller Park here in Milwaukee. I am proud of my employeer....as you can see.
I also collect toy trucks(about 350 in the collection),which also funds my racing by buying and selling of the toys.
