Hello, my name is, Terry Guynes. I am the owner/operator of Guynes Transport, LLC. US DOT Operating Authority: 3163386. MC#: 112804. We have $1 million in Commercial Liability Insurance, $300k in cargo insurance and anything I tow is insured for an amount up to $100k. Documentational evidence available upon request. I have a Class A CDL, with Tanker and HAZMAT Endorsements, a TWIC Card, 5 years of heavy haul experience, 1.6 million commercial miles behind me, 1 ticket and zero accidents.
I have attempted to obtain a business loan through traditional channels but I have failed to do so. The reason is that my credit score is dookey. I have a credit rating of approximately 610. I have been working on raising my credit score for about two years and honestly, it is a slow, unpredictable process.
I had a credit score of approximately 736 until February 7, 2014. On this day, my wife had a brain stem stroke. As fate would have it, our divorce was final on February 10, 2014. I'll explain in a moment. My wife, Veda, was diagnosed has having a brain stem stroke on February 7, 2014. Veda was taken into brain surgery to remove the clot within 90 minutes after arriving at the ER. Veda spent 8 days in the ICU, was in the hospital 34 days and when I brought her home, she could not stand, feed herself, get to the potty, on the potty or off, couldn't clean herself up afterwards, could baring talk and etc.. I could go on for several more paragraphs but I think you get the picture.. The first 14 months after the initial stroke was nightmarish in the best light.
Strokes and blood clots are insidious and maliciously cruel. Extreme damage (if not death) occurs and it doesn't leave a mark on the stroke patient. If you or someone you know has had a stroke, my thoughts and prayers are with you. As the spouse still standing, it all falls to you. Unless you have an individual experienced with the process assisting you within the circumstances, it can most probably be challenging enough to test your sanity. If you are dealing with a loved one who has recently had a stroke, contact me at 360-977-0784 or [email protected] and I will be happy to give you the benefit of my experience. I can promise you it will probably be difficult, but don't give up. Hang on! There is a solution for you and your loved one. There are tons of programs and people who can assist you, if you know who and where to call. Give me a call and know that I will assist you in anyway that I can. Bless your heart.
"Our divorce was final on February 10, 2014." Why? Veda and I were not at odds or in contentious circumstances. I am from the St. Louis, MO area. I have an ex-wife, 2 daughters, 7 grand kids and one great grandson in the St. Louis, MO. I had a real need to know my kids, grand kids and great grandson better. The ex and I were in constant combat the first 25 years after the divorce. Wanting to know all of them caused me to careless about my ex wife and her animosity. Didn't care and knew there would be a price to pay but I was willing to pay the price, if it allowed me to get to know my kids and grand kids. Had a job, an apartment and a launch date to relocate.
I told Veda what I wanted and intended to do. St Louis, MO is somewhat unique place. Most everybody hates everyone else. Race doesn't matter a great deal nor does religion, most folks just harbor animosity for most everyone else. It tends to be an unpleasant environment. I gave Veda the option of accompanying me to St Louis and she flat refused. She and I struggled with the issues for several months and finally came up a solution. Both of Veda's sons lived in Vancouver, WA and she wanted to be close to her kids, which I understood completely.
We jointly agreed that we would divorce and go our separate ways. Both of us independent and free. We agreed that revisit the subject of us being a couple in 24 months and determine if we should resume the relationship or what. So, I did a pro se divorce, gave her everything except my clothes, tools and my dog, Sam.
In 1995, Veda and I promised each other that, in the event one of us had severe health issues, the other one would do everything possible to keep the stricken one at home and in comfortable situation. Be careful what you promise, the Universe may call in the debt. Payment on demand.
Back to February 7, 2014, I was sitting in the waiting room with Veda's 2 sons, sitting deep in thought while being heartbroken. The kids were discussing what home it would be best to put Veda in. After all, they knew I was leaving and they simply could not be bothered. I knew that if Veda lived through the stroke and the surgery, being in a home would cause her to give up and pass on within 6 months. It's simply the way she is geared.
I looked at the kids and tell them, "Boys, that's not gonna happen. I got this. Don't worry about it." In that moment, I knew all my plans were dead. I also knew Veda was somehow going to be okay and I kept my word. please, I have no need or desire for sympathy. There is no benefit. I made a deliberate choice. I am a volunteer, not a victim. Veda was so utterly helpless, defenseless and vulnerable, my choice was easy. Veda is considerably better but she has 3 caregivers, Sam is officially a "Service Dog" who is protective and calms her in times of stress. And me, when I am not working. FYI: other than the time she spent in the hospital and when I am working, we have not been apart.
I have been hauling 5th wheel RV's, gooseneck RV's, bumper pulls and mini houses, most anything with wheels. Winter is a slow period for transporting RV's. I have a 20 foot bumper pull trailer that I borrowed. Load capacity of 8k pounds. It is exceedingly limiting as to loads that I can take.
I need a 35 foot gooseneck flatbed trailer 2 or 3 axles, built in ramps, duallies with a load capacity of 17.5k pounds. A new trailer costs $14k to $18k. A used trailer as described (if you can find one) it will run $7,500 to $10k. I will need tarps, chains and load straps.
I am willing to take a trailer as I described (should you have one) if you are willing to accept payments. However, I will still need approximately $10k to cover expenses. If you intend to do a loan, I ask for 60 months term and no penalties for early payoff.
With the trailer I have described, I can generate $10k to $14k monthly. I just need the opportunity. I have the experience and motivation. The days following the stroke bankrupted us and I need to get things setup for Veda in the event something should happen to me. Please, I need assistance and I give you my word that I will pay it back or in the future, I shall pass it on. I am asking for opportunity, please.
Thank you for your time and attention in this matter. Bless your heart, whatever happens next.
