A Unique History

Believe it or not, there was a time in modern history when we didn't have dump trucks. As a matter of fact, they're a fairly recent innovation. Dump trucks have really only been around for the past hundred years or so. 

British vehicle producer Thornycroft is credited with coming up with the idea of a cart that emptied its own contents. It was the late 1800s when the company began selling carts that tipped back when detached from the hitch. When motorized vehicles made the scene, operators had to manually crank a rope and pulley to dump loads from the first actual dump trucks.  In 1910, U.S. manufacturers stepped in to help dump truck history along by motorizing the dumping process.

It wasn't until WWI, however, that there was a big demand for dump trucks. From that time on, they became an essential part of both military and civilian life. 

Children's Joy

It's no secret that children love big trucks. From garbage trucks to dump trucks, they go wild for a huge machine on four big wheels.

Kids love big trucks for lots of reasons, including the fact that they're large, loud, and colorful. Big trucks also represent big projects to kids, who are still learning all about how the world around them has been put together. 

No matter their age, if your loved one loved big machines, big trucks, and heavy equipment, the practical dump truck cremation urn may be the best choice for their memorial. 

Important Jobs

Those who drive dump trucks as their profession are very important. 

Dump truck drivers are the underpinning of all construction work as well as mining and quarry operations small, large, and extra large. These big trucks and those who can safely and quickly operate them are essential to the fabric of our society, and when we lose one of them, we are all the poorer for it.

If your loved one made a living by serving society in this way, we can't think of a more fitting memorial than a practical dump truck cremation urn.
