    I use to work for a packaging distributor where we did our own deliveries with our equipment. But quite often, a customer called at the last minute and wanted something and our trucks were already on their runs, so we called a small delivery operator that we used and they sent over an econo van or dually Toyota pick-up and delivered the product for us ( for a very nice fee). They would run 2 blocks or 200 miles, whatever it needed.
