VanOpdorp Trucking was founded in 1974 by Steve and Carol Sue VanOpdorp in Annawan, Illinois. In 1980, we built our first office on the current location on Hwy 5 in Atkinson, IL--we're your local trucking and hauling services company. When the company was originally started as a local trucking company, we concentrated on moving grain and other agricultural-related services. Over the years, we have expanded to haul equipment for road construction, flatbed transportation, and construction projects. We can help you haul grain, dry and liquid fertilizers, lime application and aggregate stockpiling.
In 2009, Carol and Steve retired and Tony VanOpdorp took ownership. Over the last few years, we have grown our fleet to 16 semis, 2 dump trucks, and a variety of trailers to meet your individual hauling needs. In 2015, we built a new facility at our location in Atkinson. Over the last 40 years, we have been very proud of our outstanding safety record. We are Hazmat endorsed and safety and reliability are our top priorities.
In 2012, we added excavating to the services we provide with VO Excavating. We have a D5k bulldozer and an Ore Vermeer T655 Trencher: high-quality equipment. Both pieces of machinery are equipped with a Trimble GPS, ensuring accuracy and quality. We also have a rover unit we use to help with the job site layout, ensuring the job is done quickly and correctly. In addition to trenching, VO Excavating can also perform site grading, demolition, and main repair and installation.
Our team of professionals at VanOpdorp Trucking and VO Excavating look forward to working with you whether you have hauling or excavating needs. Our combination of knowledge, technology, and customer service is unmatched in the industry. Contact us today to learn more about how we can provide you safe, reliable and efficient service.
