Foundation and Demolition: Morris Trucking

on July 30, 2017

Morris Foundations / Demolition

Morris Trucking & Excavating has been around the block… More than once. For over 45 years, this trucking and excavating company has existed to help people (or businesses) like you, save money, and get work done faster. This win-win scenario for your project (foundation, demolition, lot leveling etc) that uses a ton of past experience and existing equipment to do exactly what you need, and in good time.

Save money with:

  • Equipment rentals when you need them
  • Operator rentals so you don’t need to train operators
  • The right equipment for the job
  • Decades of experience, by the hour

Get to Know Morris Trucking in Norfolk County

For Morris Trucking & Excavating, hard work has always been a matter of fact. Long hours and hard work are what make this Simcoe, Ontario based foundation and demolition company such a long term success.

Morris has plenty of heavy equipment for rental if you need to use their services to get a job done fast. For instance, if you’re building a home in Norfolk County, and need an excavator to dig the foundation, or a backhoe to demolish an old home… They’ve got you covered.

Heavy Equipment Rentals

Heavy equipment for rent is largely a great investment for home builders, as they can tap into huge capitally intensive inventory, and put it to use at an hourly, or daily rate. This is a far better use of financial resources than putting down the capital required to purchase the equipment outright.

Experienced operators are also part and parcel to the Morris Trucking operation, as you may definitely require someone licensed, insured, and trained to use the machinery. Excavators, backhoes, loaders and dump trucks may all seem like something that anyone can operate, however, they are certainly complicated machines.

Knowing your Heavy Machinery / Equipment in Simcoe

Do you know your heavy equipment? It’s important to have a grasp on the different types of rental equipment from Morris Trucking that you may need for your Simcoe, Delhi, Port Dover or other such job in Norfolk County.

Front End Loader Rentals

Front end loaders are often considered to be the more versatile equipment in the heavy equipment sphere. They’re typically a four wheel unit (sometimes articulated in the mid section) and have a large bucket at the front. This front end bucket makes it a great piece of machinery to move large quantities of material from one area to another, or loading up a dump truck…

Dump Truck Rentals

One of the classics, dump trucks are a widely used vehicle that allows you to transport all the goodies that you’ve been piling up with your front end loader. The dump truck, almost regardless of axle count, is hinged at the back, and uses hydraulics to push up the front end of the box. This allows you to dump stone, gravel, soil, junk etc, on site.

The inventor of the dump truck is missing from the history books, but we’d love to nod our heads at him.

Backhoe Rentals is Simcoe, Ontario

Backhoes are pretty popular rental machinery in Simcoe and Norfolk County. Their bucket on the end of an articulated arm of a tractor/truck makes for a very convenient tool for digging in certain circumstances where a front loader could not quite commit. The backhoe can as well load up a dump truck for removal of materials. It would indeed seem that each operating piece of heavy equipment pairs very well with a dump truck. A package deal often occurs as a result.

When calling Morris Trucking and Excavating in Simcoe, Ontario, make sure you’ve done your research to know if you’ll also need a dump truck rental along with your backhoe or front loader.

Working with Morris Trucking & Excavating / Local Business Synergy

With a yard and home office in Simcoe, Ontario, Morris Trucking and Excavating is no stranger to the Norfolk County area. Having been a local resident his entire life, current owner/operator Jesse Morris enjoys helping the County with municipal projects, as well as local home builders such as Herrewynen Homes when they need a foundation dug, a home demolished, or a lot cleared, leveled, or brush removed.

Buying Big Equipment Versus Renting?

Not every home builder in smaller counties and communities are able to make the investment into having big equipment on hand for their needs. This makes a service that allows you to rent the big equipment such as excavators, backhoes and dump trucks. With rentals you are able to pay as you need, and therefore you’re not sunk capitally by needing such equipment now and then.

With Morris Excavating, you can rent heavy equipment when you need, including the operator. It’s simply the way to go in order to save money and get the job done FAST.

Side Note: How Cool are Dump Trucks

Keep in mind that for Simcoe, Ontario and Norfolk County, dump trucks are widely useful. There’s so much construction going on, that a dump truck rental service can be something that your construction business can take advantage of only using such a service as needed. Again, save money, rent, don’t waste capital.

With Morris Excavating

When you work with Morris Trucking and Excavating, you’re saving money and increasing your own productivity. You don’t have to buy equipment, you just rent it. You do not need to train operators, you just rent them.

Burlington & Oakville Driveway Sealing {New! 2017}

on May 28, 2017

The Kings of Concrete and Driveway Sealing Reign

Every home, every sub division, and every burrow of the Golden Horseshoe knows that a slick and smooth driveway is a spring and summer time MUST-DO. With all the ‘fly by night’ companies in the concrete industry, who should we attempt to get in touch with to seal our driveways in the Burlington/Oakville area?

Before We Rank Hot Driveway Sealing Companies…

A Few Facts About Concrete and Driveway Sealing:

  • Asphalt has been around for over 300 years
  • Stamped and pattern concrete driveways became popular in the 1980’s
  • The first company in the Oakville/Burlington area involved with pattern concrete was Canadian Concrete Sealing
  • There are many ‘secret recipes’ that driveway contractors use for their work
  • Concrete itself was invented in 1849, and has seen various tweaks over time.
  • Burlington and Oakville have one of the highest concentrations of stamped concrete driveways in Canada.

2017 Burlington Oakville Driveway Sealing Company Rankings:

#1) Winner – Canadian Concrete Sealing

Canadian Concrete Sealing is one of the founding families on stamped and pattern concrete driveway sealing. Commencing work in the 1980’s they established dominance by being first to learn and execute on the advanced techniques involved in stamped concrete.

Growing outward and expanding into the Oakville and Burlington markets (from Hamilton area roots), Can-Seal continued to innovate and excel at sealing driveways and performing mini miracles with concrete.

Canadian Concrete Sealing can be reached at:

#2) Runner Up – Prestige Concrete Inc.

Nick at Prestige Concrete Inc has been in the concrete and driveway business for 25 years. His aptitude for detail and perfection have led to a tremendously successful venture in the northern Oakville and Vaughan areas. Prestige Concrete has done some fabulous work with more than just driveways, their work has blossomed into garden beds, walkways, patios and more.

Custom concrete work goes beyond driveways, and the care that goes into making sure all of the edges and seams are perfect is what Prestige Concrete in Richmond Hill, Ontario is all about.

Smooth Driveways are Coming, Oakville

When was the last time you paid any attention to the state of your driveway? Personally I rarely take notice. It’s a very utilitarian component of my home. It’s basically a formed rock that I use to park my car on. I know not everybody is like this, and things like the smoothness or the shine of a driveway can be something that irritates you if it is not perfect.

I’m not doing our driveway myself. Nope.

Have you tried sealing your driveway yourself? There are plenty of products that allow you the chance to take your concrete destiny into your own hands. I’m not a handy man, or a do-it yourself type of guy. This is why I opt for the professionals. They make a living sealing driveways and working with concrete. That’s the exact person I want to do the job for me. I know it will end up done right, or at least close to correct. A driveway done by a professional speaks volumes to me.

If I did it, it would take 10 times longer than a pro, and the quality of the concrete sealing work would likely be terrible – Capital T.

Paul Nudelman custom engagement rings

Wedding Rings and Custom Jewellery

on March 19, 2017

1 – The Plan

The plan is to propose to my girlfriend. We’ve been together for a few years, and she deserves the finest in custom jewellery. More specifically a custom engagement ring, made exclusively for her. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that the proposal, and the ring, need to be just as unique as she is.

I’ve been browsing for a place to easily create a custom engagement ring, and have stumbled across a number of sites to help. What I’m looking for is a) easy to use b) options galore c) trust in the maker. Many of the custom jewellery designers out there are able to fulfill one or two of these prerequisites, but only one was able to satisfy all three, plus remind me of a fourth: Experience.

Why does experience matter? Easy, read on:

2 – Experience in Creating Custom Jewellery

Once you’re considering customizing something as big as the engagement ring you plan on giving to your significant other, you start looking at all the details. Experience is a factor that is hard to quantify with anything besides years. When we’re talking about several decades of experience in creating custom wedding jewellery such as engagement rings, you can be pretty sure that the individual can offer great insight and help.

One of the advantages of experience is: predicting and avoiding common pitfalls. With ring design, I’m sure there are many ways for the process to go wrong. Having a confident and experience designer helping you can ease the mind AND wallet. For the reason of experience, and my initial three criteria for my quest for a jewellery designer, I’m pleased to say that I found the individual, Harris Nudelman of Paul Nudelman Custom Jewellers in Montreal, Quebec.

3 – Meet Custom Jeweller Harris Nudelman

Harris Nudelman is the owner and operator of Montreal based Paul Nudelman Jewellers. I chose to work with Harris after a phone call in which he very patiently described the jewellery creation process to me. I had plenty of questions regarding each step, to which Harris confidently answered and reassured me.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone at a business, and they completely changed your outlook on an industry? Harris had this effect on me regarding the custom jewellery business.

My only lingering concern after the initial conversation was “how will the computer designed model of my engagement ring convert to reality?” Harris followed up on this concern by emailing me a couple pictures that showed the initial computer renderings followed by the actual physical outcome, the finished engagement ring from a prior couple. See here:

As you can sort of see from the model to real life conversion, it only gets better as the engagement ring enters the real worlds. Shock and awe.

4 – How Montreal Rocks and Custom Engagement Rings

Montreal, Quebec isn’t shy when it comes to being a major jewellery hub of Canada. In fact, it may be among the top 3 centers for finding crafty individuals and companies to create the custom engagement ring to satisfy your luxurious lovers. My future wife-to-be isn’t exactly gold-plated, but she certainly enjoys the finer things in life. I don’t want to go in to this custom ring creation with partial enthusiasm, which is why I’m happy to have found someone with as much class, dignity, and experience as Harris.

Though based in Montreal, he is able to provide sales and service for people across Canada. As a mostly digital service at it’s core, the custom ring design can take place in conversations separated by entire provinces. Geography is not a barrier for greatness.

5 – Diamond and Ring Education From Paul Nudelman Jewellers

For the lucky ones (like me) you’ll have the benefit of talking directly to Harris to gain a full understanding of how your custom engagement ring will be designed, crafted, and forged. For people who aren’t quite ready to make the phone call, Harris has excellent educational material on his website where you may be able to gain advanced knowledge on the subject.

Arming yourself with knowledge on a potential purchase is the best way to assure a happy transaction. Read through the educational page and you’ll see how Harris’ words on the page can make clear even the foggiest of diamonds :)

6 – How Paul Nudelman Differs from Other Jewellers

Throughout my search for a custom jeweler savant, it became perfectly clear that pricing and service are the top 2 concerns potential buyers have.

We as buyers don’t want to have to feel like we’ve paid too much, or are being duped. With Harris’ results and explanations, I never once got the feeling like anything was overpriced or marked up beyond realistic expectations. I understand the fellow has to make a couple bucks, but he’s doing it respectfully and responsibly. This makes me respect the process that much more.

Service is also a delicate flower in the eyes of the buyer. Too often you are met with the stereotypical jewellery store sales staff with a primary objective of moving product. Consumers can see through that a mile away these days. As buyers get more sophisticated, we must rely on sales teams who actually realize the power of this movement, and take advantage by just dropping the suit, tie, and phony accents and just talk straight. We’re all people, and we aren’t under any illusions anymore. It’s a great new world, and we’re all working together.

7 – Back to the History of Montreal Based PNJ

70 years of experience and history in the jewellery business have set a reputation and track record that very few in the business can match. Sure, there’s some big names out there that have survived. Rarely, though do you hear about multi generational business successes that transcend more than a half century.

This perpetuity of excellence is just a glimpse into the heart of Paul Nudelman Jewellers success and reasons for CONTINUED success. I am glad to have met and dealt with Harris. His efforts to expand and adapt to an ever changing jewellery marketplace are a good sign that individual business owners are always the bedrock of a solid nation, and economy.

Safe and Secure Hosting Providers

on December 2, 2016

Secure Hosting Provider SSL

There are a number of hosting offers available on the web. But all of these come with varying prices. The reason for this is security. There are some providers who are using outdated servers. They are providing poor maintenance while others are not. Hence the pricing of secure hosting differs accordingly.

You Need Secure Hosting

It is extremely important for you to have secure hosting. After all, there is a lot of money that you invest into your website. Once it goes down you start losing your customers too. Your hosting package must be secure in order to ensure that viruses do not get into the system. Next, this can even lead to malware that can lead to using your emails for spamming and your site being used for displaying their ads.

This is why you need safe hosting in order to keep your data away from such frauds. In addition, you need to have your server up and running all the time, every day. This is the key to the success of your site.

Hence you have to identify which hosting companies are having highly secure servers. This means that just reading about great hosting plan descriptions is not enough. You have to know what stands behind them. Hence you need to ensure better security by purchasing web hosting only from the companies that are displaying precise security features. This will ensure the safety of your data and your customers will be happy.

Hence your web host has to be ready for all those instances. You require secure facilities, along with diesel power generators, and such other protection measures. Do pay attention to the place where the datacenters of your web host are situated. Always try to give preference to those areas which are not exposed to such kind of natural disasters.

Focus On Secure Host Up-time

You have to focus on this if you wish sustain and grow your business. Uptime refers to the time when your website stays online. This means that clients are able to access it without any kind of problem. You will find most web hosts promising 100% uptime. But you need to check if this is indeed true. However, in case there are brief gaps then it is not that bad. This can work out for a start-up that does not have many website visitors presently. Hence you can search for web hosts that are able to provide you reimbursement for any downtime.

Ensure A Back-Up

Typically your web host can provide a backup of your data in case of emergency. These can be daily, weekly or even monthly backups. Do note that daily backups will be the best for your business. This will enable you to restore the latest version of your site if your server goes down.

There are some web hosts who offer manual backup too. This is even better as you can make use of it each time you update something on the websites.


Web Hosting for Small Business

Small businesses need to take precautions just like any big business. Safety starts with a few key tips that can truly transform your level of web stress. Talking to the folks at, every business can benefit from having a secure virtual assistant to take care of not only a website, but it’s hosting and search rank as well. Barricade is an all in wonder.

5 Ways for Myself to Write Better

on September 23, 2016

I Need to Write Better

When I set out to write any of my articles/posts, I generally have a direction I’d like to pursue, or a topic I’d like to rant about. However, as I type and discover that my thoughts often amount to less than an ideal amount of words, I end up padding the page with a lot of obscure and random thoughts. These tangents definitely stray from the original topic, and are probably the cause for a drop in perceived legitimacy.

A Plan of Action

My plan of action for today is to establish a five point plan to focus future writing and enable heightened continuity. It is my hope that I can adhere to this doctrine of writing, and set a new standard for personal quality.

  1. STAY ON POINT (Stop straying from the topic)
  2. INCLUDE TWO IMAGES (It’s minor, but it is helpful)
  3. COMPLETE THE THOUGHT (No more direction shifts halfway through a sentence)
  4. EDIT AND SELF CHECK (Stop posting without reading back)
  5. REMEMBER THE AUDIENCE (Speak to people, not just search engines!)

If you think I’m missing anything in my quest for better writing, by all means let me know. I never claimed to be a write, I just happen to be able to put a few words together and have publishing ability.


Branching to Simcoe Services

Simcoe Services

Taking advantage of the new TDL (top level domain) – .Services – The Simcoe Services department has been approved to deploy sub sites for all interested parties. This subset of websites will allow Simcoe.Services to enhance the distribution of smaller businesses on the internet for the local area of Simcoe, and Norfolk County.

Simcoe Ontario Trails

Simcoe sign on the sunrise trail. North end of Simcoe.

What remains to be seen is if this implementation will actually be effective. After reading many articles on the process, and understanding that certain aspects of this strategy are indeed sound, the application and execution will need to be monitored for results. Hopefully we see a tremendous ability to capture the area audience, which will lead to continued prosperity, and ease of use for each successive release.

Studying the Competition

It’s a strange balance to take into account. In Simcoe, you’ll find some businesses are over saturated with competition, whereas others you can see a clear gap in the marketplace. The obvious contenders are always overloaded, such as photographers, and real estate agents. Yet we see surprisingly little amounts of computer repair technicians or tow truck drivers. Ultimately every area, Norfolk County included, will find it’s groove, and this means that you’ll really eventually reach equilibrium of service offerings. It must be true, as I only see a half a dozen local web designers, and my result tends to be top two, and I NEVER get calls from the website. It really makes you wonder.

Is the VALUE the Results? or the PERCEPTION of Results?
