Lift-Gate Truck II

Breakaway New York has recently acquired a second, 14ft-lift-gate truck. Like the first one, this extra-large vehicle is decked out in our dazzling purple Bikeman logo. Among the items that have inaugurated our new truck are a 180-pound bus tire and a dentist’s chair that was delivered out to Paterson, New Jersey. If you would like to hire one or both of our lift-gate trucks for a big job, just give us a call.
