The Absolute E-Z Up Difference

Our company was founded on three basic values:

 Low Level Access Lifts Ladson, SC

Safety - The Top Time Booster

When workers are injured, they're either placed on light duty or leave until they heal up and get back to work. This leaves you with the conundrum do you hire a new worker (which requires an initial expense) or reassign members of your staff to make up the difference? Obviously, neither situation is optimal. The biggest factor preventing these kinds of frustrating situations is workplace safety, which is why it's our top priority at AEUP. It doesn't matter if you buy a manual platform lift in Ladson, SC, or an electric stock picker. You can rest easy when you purchase equipment from us, knowing that AEUP aerial work platforms and material handling equipment come with the most innovative safety technologies.

A few of those safety mechanisms include:

  • Anti-tilt systems, helping to prevent toppling and turnovers.
  • Built-in pothole protection for driving equipment.
  • Double-foot sensors, which halts the machine from operating unless two feet are planted on the sensors.

Note: Depending on your needs, your machinery may or may not include some of these safety technologies. Please refer to specific product pages for more details.

This SC pup beat all odds for survival. Now he’s in the running for national hero dog award

Fire danced on the shed walls, sheltering Jake, his siblings and his mother. His mother and siblings escaped unharmed, but a piece of the inflamed ceiling fell on the 3-week-old puppy.

Seven years later, Jake the pit bull from Ladson, S.C., is one of the semifinalists for the 2022 American Humane Hero Dog Awards out of 400 candidates from across the country.

“When we got him out of the shed, he wasn’t breathing, wasn’t moving. I started doing mouth-to-snout until we got our pet oxygen mask,” said William Lindler, Jake’s handler and one of the firefighters on the scene of that shed fire in 2015.

Jake was rushed to a local emergency vet’s office by a firetruck in Ladson. Jake began breathing on his own on the trip, but burns marred 75% of his tiny body.

His recovery took about three or four months, and on top of that, the young pit bull’s family abandoned him at the veterinarian’s office.

The office manager of the veterinarian clinic told Lindler that the family had been given options to proceed with Jake’s treatment and were left in the waiting room to fill out some forms.

“About five minutes later, they looked into the waiting room and they were gone,” Lindler said. “And they had just left the clipboard blank with the paperwork on it in the chair in the waiting room.”

After finding out what happened, Lindler automatically decided to adopt the puppy.

Jake followed Lindler to the fire station each day and was eventually sworn in as an Honorary Firefighter and the official mascot. The dog usually went with the team for truck rides and visited schools for fire prevention weeks with his dad.

When Jake wasn’t allowed to ride with the team to calls, things got a little messy. The first year Lindler had him, his wife bought Jake a TempurPedic dog bed for the station. Lindler and his team went out on a call and left Jake at the station because Lindler thought it was too late at night to take the dog along.

When Lindler got back, Jake was found standing on top of the kitchen table, staring at the firefighters with stuffing littered around him.

“It looked like it had snowed in the kitchen because he had totally destroyed that bed,” Lindler laughed. “He was accustomed to going with us on the trucks, but it was about 9 o’clock at night so I just decided to leave him at the station. Well, obviously, he did not like that very much.”

Jake was the star of Ladson’s City Hall and the schools during his three years as an ambassador. Although he had been burned badly, he was always happy to promote the positives and help out with demonstrations.

“The (students) absolutely loved him. I guess they thought it was the neatest thing that there was a puppy that wore a firefighter coat just like us and had a little helmet,” Lindler said.

Jake still carries fame today on social media, which led the American Humane Society to reach out to Lindler about entering Jake into the hero dog contest. His Instagram, “jakethefirepibble,” has more than 23,000 followers as of June 7.

“A couple of his canine buddies have competed in it in years past, and I always thought it was cool when they were doing it, but I never thought about, ‘Could I enter Jake? Should I enter Jake?” Lindler said.

Lindler said he hopes Jake’s story has a positive impact on everyone who’s heard it or has met Jake.

“Everyone has some form of scars, but you shouldn’t let those scars define you,” Lindler said. “(Jake’s injuries) do not slow him down one bit.”

Voting is open to choose the seven finalists in the 2022 American Humane Hero Dog Awards and will close July 22 at 3 p.m.

If you’d like to vote for Jake in the 2022 American Humane Hero Dog Awards and see the other nominees, visit www.herodogawards.org.

Dorchester County starts $3 million fire station rebuild

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Dorchester County Fire Station 21 on Ladson Road is now closed while construction begins on a major remodel.

The $3.3 million project will see the station completely demolished and reoriented so the building faces the road.

Fire Chief Tres Atkinson says the new station is part of the county’s strategy for redeveloping the Oakbrook area. He says the new station will have four bays, office space, living quarters and at least six bunkrooms.

“This is a big deal for this area. I think not so much for the call volume but just the way this area is growing and the way it looks,” Atkinson said. “We really need to make it fit the ticket for the remodel of the Oakbrook area. We really need to make this more aesthetically pleasing, and I think it’s a win for both sides - for the fire service and for the community as well.”

It will also feature a weight room and a dedicated area for turnout gear. This is a decontamination area to purge gear of harmful chemicals picked up during fire calls. Many of those chemicals are carcinogenic, meaning they can cause to cancer.

The project is currently $300,000 over the original budget with construction expected to be completed sometime next year, although a more specific timeline is not yet available. In the meantime, the fire trucks and ambulances have been moved to other areas.

That has some people living in the area concerned.

“The new station will be great in the long run, but I am just concerned that they were not planning their coverage in the meantime,” said Fred K. “There are numerous apartment buildings being constructed within a half mile from here. How are we going to have the same coverage while this construction is going on?”

Atkinson says they moved the fire engines to Station 22, about four miles away. They transferred EMS services to a Summerville fire station one mile away.

“We worked with our automatic aid partners in Summerville and North Charleston,” Atkinson said. “North Charleston has two stations right close by. . . There really won’t be a big impact to the response times.”

Fred’s concern isn’t about distance so much as it is about traffic.

“I’ve seen EMS have to drive over the concrete medians they put down on Dorchester Road. It’s not too easy for them to get down this way in heavy traffic,” Fred said. “The areas they have to go through are some of the most congested traffic in Dorchester County up here on Ladson Road and Dorchester Road. There’s so much more traffic here than there used to be even from just a few years ago. "

Atkinson says they’ve done the math and can guarantee there will not be a noticeable change in response times.

“We’ll be on scene very quickly,” Atkinson said. “It’ll be a big truck, a big red truck and it might say North Charleston or Summerville or Dorchester County on it but we’ll be there in a timely manner.”

When retail goods are returned, SC liquidators stand ready to make a profit

The pandemic-fueled boom in retail sales, particularly from online shopping, has given rise to a new type of entrepreneur — the person willing to flip all of the merchandise consumers decided they didn’t really want for a profit.

Liquidation sales are among the fastest-growing segments of the retail industry as a record $761 billion worth of goods were returned in 2021, according to a study by the National Retail Federation. While some of that merchandise makes its way back to major retailers’ shelves, an increasing number is being sold, either by the pallet or in discount bins, by liquidators who see gold in someone else’s castoffs.

Tim Morris remembers he first heard about such sales shortly after COVID-19 hit. A co-owner of a Ladson towing business for roughly 20 years, Morris said he decided to sell liquidation merchandise on the side after visiting one of the North Carolina warehouses where returned goods from retailers like Target and Dollar General are sold at auction or for a set price per bundle.

“One day, just out of the blue, we decided to go to North Carolina and check out the (warehouse) and I wound up buying a semi-truck load of merchandise,” Morris said, explaining how KT Bins & more was born.

At first, Morris would simply unbundle all the goods and sell them in a small store next to the towing company’s office. But after a while, he saw the market for reselling entire pallets purchased directly from the liquidation warehouse. Such pallets might contain multiple boxes of the same product — a recent offering included nearly a dozen fire pits, for example — or a bunch of related goods, like lawn mowers and a sprinkle of other yard and garden tools.

“We started selling a few pallets and then we said, ‘You know, let’s get into the pallet business. There’s no one else close by doing it.’ ”

On sunny days, Morris lines his palleted merchandise at the front of his business along U.S. Highway 78 to attract passersby. While KT Bins & More is only open three days a week, it attracts a steady stream of new and return customers.

“We have a pretty good crowd,” Morris said, adding that inflation has more people looking for bargains.

The liquidation market has more than doubled since 2008 to $664 billion a year, according to a CNBC report citing a study by Colorado State University. The National Retail Federation said nearly 17 percent of all merchandise consumers purchased in 2021 was returned, up from 10.6 percent the previous year. Returns are even greater for online sales — nearly 21 percent in 2021.

The boom is being driven by a record amount of imported retail goods moving through the Port of Charleston and other major seaports during the past couple of years. When online sales skyrocketed during the pandemic shutdowns, spurred in part by a series of stimulus payouts, retailers began ordering extra products to meet demand. They also started placing orders far earlier than ever before for seasonal goods, like back-to-school and holiday merchandise.

Supply chain snarls kept much of that merchandise tied up at ports or distribution centers, rather than on store shelves, and when retailers finally got the goods, they found demand had shifted. These days, inflation and an economic slowdown have left retailers with a glut of products, and some shoppers are sending back the merchandise they once couldn’t live without.

Processing a return can cost retailers up to two-thirds of a product’s original price, CNBC reported. So retailers are more often deciding to forgo putting merchandise ranging from clothing and kitchen items to electronics and power tools back on a shelf. Instead, they’re selling it to warehouses like the one Liquidity Services operates in North Wilkesboro, N.C.

Recently, the warehouse on Armory Road offered a pallet containing 223 pounds of returned toys and games from Target, which fetched $505. Another bundle of eight pallets containing name-brand tools and hardware with a retail price of nearly $15,000 sold for $2,900, better than an 80 percent discount.

Much of that merchandise will wind up on eBay, Poshmark or other online outlets for secondhand goods, at flea markets or at stores like KT Bins & More, where pallets arrive by tractor-trailer — at least one, often more — every week. Morris said he goes through all the merchandise he buys to make sure it’s in good working condition.

He’s not the only entrepreneur looking to cash in on returned goods.

Elise Milbrandt owns the Amazing Bins store in Ladson, which has wooden bins packed with more than 150,000 new items each week. Milbrandt buys tractor-trailer loads of liquidated merchandise, such as a recent haul of $500,000 worth of shoes, that’s sold at lower prices the longer they sit in a bin. New stock is loaded on Saturday, when goods sell for $7 per item. By Tuesday, whatever is left goes for $2 per item. The rest of the week is spent purchasing more goods and restocking for the next Saturday’s debut.

“What you can expect to find in our store is over 30 large bins filled with everything from car parts to Cartier and Gucci to groceries and everything in between,” Milbrandt says on the store’s website. Recent items have included bath bombs, memory-foam mattresses, area rugs and Keurig coffee makers.

Milbrandt said she and her husband, Mike, got the idea to open Amazing Bins in 2020 after visiting similar stores in the Upstate. Among the most valuable items customers have found in the store’s bins include a pair of 18-karat gold rings — verified by a jeweler — and a leather purse sporting Gucci’s trademark double-G logo. While Milbrandt said she’s not qualified to authenticate such items, it’s the thrill of finding a hidden treasure that lures many people to the store.

“The lady who bought it said, ‘Gucci, Foochee, I don’t care — it’s a beautiful black bag and it’s leather and I’m thrilled’,” Milbrandt said. “For $7 you get a real leather purse that brings you joy, I say that’s a win.”

There are similar setups across South Carolina, such as Palmetto Pallets in Florence, Bargain Bins in Williston and Barnwell, Dig A Deal in Abbeville and Bin Time stores in Mauldin and Anderson, where customers regularly line up hours ahead of opening time to be the first to sort through the week’s new merchandise.

“Typically, we have a few hundred people waiting outside” on days when new stock is introduced, Michael Prendamano, owner of The Bin Store in North Augusta, told that city’s WJBF television station.

Summerville resident Chad Brown said he visits KT Bins & More often to see what new merchandise might be available for the home he’s trying to furnish.

“There’s always good stuff here,” he said. “Last weekend, we bought a Rigid shop-vac, some fans and a little tabletop heater.”

Like many consumers, Brown also buys some items to resell. He recently bought a $150 pallet with a pair of propane fire pits, keeping one and selling the other to recoup some of his money.

“Any pallet here, if there’s something you need or something way on the bottom that you think looks nice, buy it because you’re going to make out,” he said.

Lowcountry Mental Health Conference celebrates 10th year

CHARLESTON, S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Around 1,300 people attended the Lowcountry Mental Health Conference over the span of three days at the Gaillard Center.

More than 90 booths were set up for the conference, all for one thing: to talk about mental health.

"Mental health is for all of us. We are trying to move the conversation forward about mental health and how to become more mentally well," said David Diana, the director of the conference.

Diana said mental health is something everyone should focus on, because if you take care of yourself, then you can help others. He said spreading awareness about mental health is key.

"We try to bring more attention to what the issues are, what these problems might be, what stressors might be so people can identify them. Then they can see if they do have an issue, they can realize, 'hey, maybe I need help,'" said Diana.

One of the many booths at the conference was Mental Health Heroes, a non-profit that immediately helps those who are in need. If someone goes to the Dorchester or Charleston mental health center and expresses a dire need to their counselor, then Mental Health Heroes can step in.

"We see immediate results for people that are on the edge or at the tipping point. They could be homeless, they could be arrested or they could be going to the emergency room. What we try to do is give them the resources immediately so they can avoid those three situations," said Mark Hood, board member of Mental Health Heroes.

The non-profit helps around 500 people a year with a wide range of things.

"It can be anything from eyewear, dentures, clothing, transportation, part-time employment, tools, car repairs. It's anything," said Hood.

Hood said helping people get through tough times is what they are there for. He has worked in mental health for more than 20 years, and his passion is help people.

"I was always fascinated with the mind. I was always fascinated with how people get better, and how people get sick. What are the ingredients besides medication and therapy, what are the ingredients that help people get back on the road to recovery?" said Hood.
