Hauling service open to all orders
March 12, 2012
Whether you need something big moved for work, home or otherwise, sometimes you require a little help.
Fortunately there's a business designed to pick up the slack.
4 Energy Hotshot Services, LLC, 74 N. Linda Vista Dr., is newly instituted transport company for those needing to move large loads in a hurry. Though the owners had a specific clientele in mind when they first completed business paperwork in January, they have already considered branching out.
"Our target points are mines, oil fields and construction, but now that we're getting into this, we want to expand to anybody who needs a delivery," owner and operator Jenny Knez said. "Something like somebody who needs a large appliance but doesn't want to go all the way to Denver or Grand Junction to pick it up, that's something we could do."
Jenny handles the business with her husband, Eric. Their hauling equipment includes a three-quarter ton flatbed truck and a 24-foot gooseneck trailer.
She said they will take on virtually any load that will fit in the confines of their truck or trailer.
"No hazardous materials, but other than that, anything," she said.
Jenny said the couple had been considering such a business venture for the last two years.
Moving around large personal cargo in their spare time such as horses and a boat has given them plenty of experience behind the wheel pulling something large.
While 4 Energy is a side business for the pair — Eric works for Peabody Coal, Jenny as a part-time nurse in Steamboat Springs — she said she hopes they can make it grow with a sizable list of regular clients.
"If it really gets up and running, I'll probably back off from my job a little," Jenny said. "If we have deliveries at least five days a week, I think we'd be happy with that."
The services of 4 Energy are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and range from deliveries within Northwest Colorado to cross-country, if needed.

Coin show returning to Craig
You have to spend money to make money.
However, in some instances, you can make some cold hard cash from the currency that's gone unspent in your house for years.
The International Coin Collectors Association will set up shop this week at the Hampton Inn and Suites, 377 Cedar Court.
The organization specializes in appraising coin and paper money, and while attendees pay nothing to walk in, they could walk out with a lot more lining their pockets.
ICCA, part of THR & Associates, is on the lookout for certain items in particular, including gold coins, silver coins minted before 1970 and pre-1934 paper currency.
Items like three-cent pieces, buffalo nickels and Kennedy half-dollars are also rarities that could be worth big bucks.
ICCA and other THR affiliates have traveled to Craig several times in the past year pricing valuables like precious metals and antiquities and have paid considerable funds to local collectors.
A news release from the company said buyers hope to pay out about $200,000 while in the area.
ICCA will be at Hampton Inn from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 217-787-7767 or email THR at firstname.lastname@example.org.
