A Family-Owned and Operated Trucking Business
Nevada City, California
Three Generations of Trucking Experience
Bill Slade & Sons Trucking was established in 2000 as a way to combine my trucking background with my construction skills and provide a way to work with my sons, leaving them a legacy to follow. We are a family owned and operated business.
Our family has 3 generations of trucking experience in delivering aggregate products to Nevada County and the surrounding communities. Father Dudley retired out of the Marine Corps., retired from the Sheriff Dept. and then started delivering for Carsten Hansen for fun in his spare time.
I am fortunate to have been able to grow up in Nevada County, attend local schools and raise my 5 children here. I have been working with and been around trucks for most of my adult life: during my 3 years of active duty in the military, driving a tow truck, driving for Ernie’s Van & Storage, and Grass Valley Ready Mix. I have gained my construction skills by being involved in many different projects in various aspects, learning various trades. I am now able to pass on my skills and knowledge to my sons firsthand.
Our philosophy is to have quality operators and quality equipment, offering a quality product and/or service with a positive attitude. Positive attitudes produce positive results! We enjoy what we do by helping our customer, be it a homeowner, contractor, or business owner, etc. achieve their goal with their project. We have the knowledge and ability to get the right product from various quarries for each particular job based on the customer’s needs. We can work with residential aspects as well as commercial. While we have worked all over California we enjoy working locally with the people of our community.
