Demo For a Cure

Southern Demolition and "Pinky" from Volvo Rents Color For A Cause


Southern Demolition has had a working business relationship with Volvo Rents for the last few years.  In addition to being a great company to work with, Volvo Rents has proven its interest in the community it serves through its Color For A Cause program.

Volvo has painted their machinery in various different colors for different community causes.  Our favorite is a pink excavator that we have dubbed "Pinky."

Each time the machine is rented, Volvo Rents donates a portion of the proceeds to Susan G Komen foundation.  Since January, Pinky has been rented for over $20,000 - that's over $2,000 for breast cancer research this year.

We want to help spread awareness of this generosity during October, breast cancer awareness month.  We are happy to help Volvo with their donation program throughout the year and will continue to do so!

The story was covered by Construction Equipment Guide in their online magazine.  Read more about it at http://www.constructionequipmentguide.com/Austell-Gas-Flooded-Houses-Come-Down/17075.

Surreal Demolition

There is something peaceful about this, in a surreal way.  This was taken mid-demo and I found it today when I was going through some of my photos. I had something happen today that has never happened before (to my knowledge). I found one of my photos on another Atlanta area demolition contractor's website.  I'm pretty furious that someone would take such liberties in stealing images that are pretty standard to get yourself if you are in the demolition business.
