Snyder brings Mayflower to Brookings

Brookings entrepreneur Robert Snyder, who has had more than 12 years experience in the moving business, took on the biggest rig of his life on Nov. 1 – a 53-foot Mayflower moving van.

“It can hold up to four households full of goods,” Snyder said as he showed off his newest equipment earlier this week.

Snyder is the Mayflower agent/local service administrator in Curry County, in association with Olsen and Fielding Moving Service.

Snyder is excited about being part of the Mayflower chain that has 700 trucks and 300 agents, and can move household goods of any size, worldwide.

Another plus to be part of the Mayflower fleet is the advantage of having available loads for the trip back, which wasn’t always possible when he was owner-manger-driver of his own Express Moving Co.

“Mayflower also provides a claims manager and a moving coordinator, and handles all customer service and billing,” Snyder explained.

 About his big new rig he said, “It’s longer, higher, and wider than anything I have driven before.” 

However, its size also means that, in many cases, because of narrow and unpaved streets in Curry County, he will often pick up household goods in a smaller truck and transfer the furniture and additional items to the big rig for cross country moves.

“The Mayflower truck is more difficult to drive here than on the freeways across country,” he explained.

With access to worldwide moving, Mayflower has a military contract with the U.S. Coast Guard and other military services.

“Basically, we do everything,” Snyder declared.

  • Asian shares fall for third day on global growth concerns
    Asian shares fell for a third straight day on Wednesday as weak manufacturing reports from China, the United States and Europe fueled worries about slowing global growth, while the safe-haven Japanese yen firmed as investors unwound carry trades. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 1.2 percent by late morning, taking its losses to nearly 4 percent so far this week as investors continued to dump emerging market assets. While signs of an emerging market slowdown has been evident for a while in the form of falling commodity prices and weak trade growth, investors had been broadly sanguine on the hopes that robust demand from the U.S. and China would keep the global growth engines chugging along.
  • Factory slowdown puts wrinkle in U.S. growth outlook
    U.S. factory activity braked to a more than two-year low in August, but sturdy gains in automobile sales and construction spending suggested the economy remained on solid footing. The sharp slowdown in manufacturing, which has been hurt by a strong dollar and deep spending cuts in the energy sector, was probably an early indication of fallout from the recent turmoil in stock markets, economists said. "It suggests that the recent eruption in uncertainty toward Chinese and global growth is beginning to affect U.S. business decisions," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Oil prices extend losses on U.S. oil inventory, manufacturing data
    Oil prices fell around 2 percent in early Asian trade on Wednesday, as a stronger than expected build in U.S. crude oil stocks and weaker U.S. manufacturing data fueled a rout in prices that started in the previous session. Brent and U.S. crude finished around 8 percent lower on Tuesday to end a 25-percent three-session surge, the largest three-day gain since 1990. This rollercoaster volatility could continue especially if there are similar wild swings in the equity markets, said Ric Spooner, chief market analyst at Sydney's CMC Markets.
