Don’t drive your backhoe loader across the US-ship it with Nationwide!

Choose Nationwide to ship your construction equipment!I have a really bad idea for you:

Drive your backhoe loader across the United States. The other day I was talking about driving from New York to LA, so let’s go with that distance: 2,777 miles.

This backhoe consumes about 1.1 gallon of diesel fuel per hour minimum. It can travel up to 22 mph.

Diesel fuel costs about $3.00 per gallon right now.

So, here’s the math:

2,777 miles/22 mph = 126.2 hours

126.2 hours x 1.1 gallons/hour = 138.8 gallons

138.8 gallons x $3.00/gallon = $416.50

So we have a brutal 10-day journey and a staggering fuel bill! Plus, it’s quite difficult to get a good audio experience in a backhoe: they don’t have iPod jacks and the NVH is awful.

Fortunately, there is a solution: shipping your backhoe loaders and other heavy equipment with Nationwide!
