Par Electric has sent a letter praising driver Craig Bates. "...commend Craig on the job he did for us. He was very professional, always on time, and had a can do attitude everyday, even thru the long hours we were working to try to meet this near impossible deadline. ...Your rear-steer trailer was put thru its paces every day. In fact he went thru a traffic circle for four loads in a residential area with 100'+ wood and never touched a sign or curbed a tire... Craig made quite the impression... "

As you know, we recently suffered through one of the worst snowstorms to hit the Portland area in 100 years. We had as many as 150,000 customers out of service, but never more than about 60,000 at any one time. Much of the credit for restoration of our customers goes to our employees and suppliers who, through their dedication and hard work, spent many hours under stressful conditions performing their jobs.
Leavitt's Freight Service was one of our suppliers who deserves special thanks for helping us in restoring service to our customers. Your quick and timely response providing us pole deliveries is very much appreciated.
It would be ideal to always have the necessary quantities of material available in a storm, but you and I know that is often not possible. Your support and quick response to our needs is of great benefit to our company and customers.

Thank you for keeping McFarland Cascade in a position of privilege with our California customers during the recent fire storms. Your dedication and professionalism is most appreciated and contributes to McFarland Cascade's long term reputation as North America's leading wood pole supplier.
I appreciate the outstanding response of Leavitt's to this extraordinary emergency, but that is nothing new. Leavitt's always has responded exceptionally well to emergencies. This was one of the most demanding and stressful situations we have been called upon to handle for our customers and you managed it well. I know this was a disorganized process at times, but you maintained your composure and made the deliveries happen. I can't express my thanks enough.
Please commend your staff and your drivers for their professionalism, patience and hard work in this most challenging of situations. Leavitt's is a first rate company. Let's hope we don't have an emergency like this one again. But, if it happens, I am glad to know that I can count on the team at Leavitt's Freight Service.
