Mickey’s Kyle McLaughlin (l) greets Black Dog’s Mike Whiteside.

When you want to carefully extract architectural elements from a home or historical property, or disassemble an old, crumbling building, who you gonna call? Black Dog Salvage, the Roanoke, VA-based leader in the residential and commercial reclamation field and host of Salvage Dawgs, of one of the most popular Reality TV shows on the airwaves today.

When Black Dog Salvage wants to help its crew work more safely and productively at the reclamation site, who they gonna call? Mickey Truck Bodies, the nation’s leading truck body and trailer reconditioning company with 4 freestanding facilities across the country.

Black Dog Co-Owner/Co-Founder Mike Whiteside, also one of the TV show’s on-air personalities, called on Mickey’s Reconditioning & Service Team to retrofit its “site vehicle” – a Show Hauler – with a Maxon BMR Rail hydraulic liftgate for loading the assets onto the truck. Upon completion of the job, Mike visited with Kyle McLaughlin, Mickey’s Director of Reconditioning, Parts & Used Equipment at the company’s Mid-Atlantic Center in Thomasville, NC to review the retrofit and take in a little training. (Click HERE to view the video of Mike’s visit. The video is also available on the Black Dog Salvage Facebook page.)

“The lift gate from Mickey Truck Bodies was an incredible addition to our site vehicle,” says Mike. “It allows us to move product up and down safety, while maximizing our crew’s productivity. It was a pleasure working with Mickey Truck Bodies. We love working with professional companies that know their product and back it up with superior service. We will use Mickey for all of our custom truck body and lift gate needs.” On the video, Mike called the liftgate retrofit “a perfect solution.”

Salvage Dawgs will begin its 5th season in early 2016 on DIY. Every show is a fast-paced and fun treasure hunt with the mission to “reclaim, renew and redefine architectural salvage for a sustainable future.” Click HERE for the Salvage Dawgs Episode Guide on the Black Dog web site for seasons 1 – 4. The DIY Network also has a handful of episodes available streaming on their website; Hulu has Season 1 available; and both Amazon & iTunes have all 4 seasons available to purchase.
