September 11, 2001

Having been retained by the City of New York as the official heavy equipment consultant for the World Trade Center Emergency Response Office after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Truck & Equipment Specialists assisted the city with monitoring, adjusting, and settling claims relating to damage sustained by equipment working in rescue and cleanup operations. The extensive list of equipment we adjusted during the 24-hour-a-day project included cranes, excavators, loaders, tractors, and various types of trailers.

At the conclusion of the project, Truck & Equipment Specialists had handled over 450 claims over a fourteen-month period for a total value of over $6 million.
