"This picture was taken out by the Kansas Turnpike in 1982 or '83. It shows the kind of equipment we had at the end. This shows doubles, two 45 foot Trailmobile trailers, and a new International tractor. We leased the trailers from an outfit in Kansas City," recalls D.W. Heidrick, former president of Cassell Transfer & Storage.

"The Turnpike saved us considerable time. We could make it to Kansas City in about four hours when seven or eight hours was the best we could do before. The people in this picture are Norb Dechant (center) who was our vice-president and general manager from 1974 to 1983, Ted Heibert (right) our insurance agent, and Harly Robinson, one of out drivers."
This is a quote from the former president of Cassell Transfer & Storage and copied from an old magazine.
