So being that this is Chicago, is there any issues with unloading the trailer at the convention center, ie with unions? I know the company I worked for years ago used to send the company truck to McCormick with a trade show exhibit, but had a difficult time getting it unloaded once the truck arrived. Story I heard was that a "bribe" was required to get unloaded unless the driver waited hours until the middle of the night and was unloaded at double time. Had to change to shipping via common carrier. Just wondering for those bringing their own trailer?

There is no issues unloading your private car trailer/hauler all you have to do is follow the instructions that is on your paperwork and you get right in at your designated time and they give you about 30 to 45 minutes to unload ...what I can tell you is ....with the cold weather please make sure you guys have antifreeze in your cars we don’t want anyone pushing freezeout plugs out and trust me I have seen it happen to other cars

Peace of mind knowing everything is taken care of and you can relax and enjoy friends/ cars/food/beer (not necessarily in that order) is worth waaaaaaaay more than a few bucks off in my opinion!

Cheers and everyone have fun!!

This sums it up; may not be the cheapest but they are competitive and their insurance coverage and tracking ability is second to none.

No issues whatsoever. To say the community of Rosemont welcomes us with open arms is an understatement. With the amount of business we bring in to the community, they work directly with us in many ways to help us continue to produce a quality show.

Can you say 2,000+ hotel rooms nights?
