Buchanan Hauling & Rigging was founded by Geary Buchanan in June 1996. Geary was a trucking owner-operator with 24 years of personal experience, started the company with one truck and two trailers on the notion that hard work would pay off. His vision was to outwork and out-perform the competition by providing superior transportation at a fair market rate, building long-term successful partnerships, and offering high-quality employment opportunities to drivers and owner-operators.
Since its inception, Buchanan Hauling has grown substantially while remaining committed to enhancing its services. The company values customer and vendor feedback and continually works to improve its level of service.
Initially, Buchanan Hauling offered flatbed and open deck transporting but quickly expanded its services to include expedited flatbed transport and hauling of large and overweight freight using multiple axle trailers for the heavy haul industry. Due to customer demand, Buchanan Hauling also expanded its fleet to include vans (enclosed), drop deck, and curtainside trailers.

The company’s professional logistics team is equipped with the knowledge, technology, and industry connections to handle shipments of any size, frequency, or situation.
The company’s hazmat division, Buchanan Specialized, was established to meet clients’ growing needs. Buchanan invests heavily in training, equipment, and safety technology to ensure that customers’ shipments arrive safely and securely.
