When Paolo Piovesan was looking to expand his equipment transport business, he turned to Travelers to help him make this happen.
Paolo is the owner of DLP Heavy Haul, which he founded in 2004. Since then, he has built his business to 3 trucks, 5 trailers, 1 pick-up, and has 4 employees working with over 100 customers a year. Travelers has been a part of that growth and is proud to have played a role in the success of its customers.
A small fluid hauling business was losing business because they couldn’t service more contracts…so Travelers stepped-in to help acquire more trucks and grow the business.
Everyone knows that when the oilfield services sector gets busy, it gets very busy very quickly. This presented a problem for a fluid hauling business in Northern Alberta. With a three truck and trailer fleet busy around the clock, they couldn’t keep up with calls for lucrative work, and in turning work away were only helping their competition to grow.

When a business owner needed a commercial-use vehicle with custom features to enable service delivery, only Travelers was there to help make it happen.
A commercial maintenance company needed to add a bigger vehicle to its fleet in order to accommodate a large piece of equipment that was purchased for a new cleaning contract. The company wanted to lease the vehicle for tax benefits, however, there were a few challenges that made it difficult for the company to acquire a truck from other finance companies.
Desperate to immediately acquire a new vehicle and all out of options, the team at Travelers Auto went the extra mile to make it happen.
Just as David was getting ready to catch a red-eye flight to Toronto for a last minute business meeting, his vehicle broke down, leaving his wife suddenly without a car. He had a vehicle picked out at a local dealership but didn’t have time to leave work to apply for the financing.
