Lance Intermill the owner of Lance Trucking, Inc. literally has trucking
"in-his-blood". His grandfather Marvin Pickard was
the owner of Marvin Pickard Trucking from 1945 to 1988 (Colman, South
Dakota) Lance's Grandpa retired at the age of 84. Lance always admired
his Grandpa and
knew from a young age that he wanted to have his own trucks, just like
In 1994 at the age of 21 Lance began driving truck
for his brother. In 2000 he bought his first truck
(a 1998 Peterbilt), and after fulfilling a one year contract, leased
onto another company, Lance and his wife Heather decided to go on
their own; starting L & H Trucking. In May of 2002 he
purchased a second truck and hired a driver. However, two months
later, after a (NON-fatal) accident
totaled the other truck; Lance opted for trucking locally as the sole
operator with his original truck.
In September 2004 an opportunity
opened for Lance to again expand. Knowing that this was his
chance to have his own "fleet", he began purchasing more
trucks and a variety of trailers! Having now been divorced the
name was changed to "Lance Trucking".
In 2007 Lance purchased 11 acres of
property in the Industrial Park in Volga South Dakota and built a lot
for parking his trucks which now numbered eight.
Each year became more prosperous for Lance
and in 2008 he began a new division of the business called "Dirt and More".
(which provides landscaping supplies and services)
In 2009 "Lance Trucking" became incorporated.
This young mans dream to be like "grandpa", has flourished
into a company that now employees approx 20 people and hauls a wide
variety of products locally and across the country!
