A Little Bit of History:
Mike Habeck was born and raised on a dairy farm in northern Minnesota. His interest in trucks began at a young age. After graduating from High School, he moved to California where he got his first truck driving job hauling hay. He spent the next 10 years driving over the road pulling everything from bull racks to reefers.
In 1988 he quit driving and went back to school. At the same time, he went to work for Homestake Mining Company in western South Dakota, working underground as a miner. He graduated from college in 1992 with a BA in Business and Accounting. Mike quit Homestake in 1992 and joined his brother in building a large dairy operation.
Two years later they had milked enough cows, so Mike decided to buy a truck and travel around the country for a while. He spent the first years hauling cow trailers, end dumps, reefers, etc. until 1999 when he bought his first reefer trailer. He began hauling loads from the Midwest to the west and Northwest building a strong base of customers across the I-90 corridor, now Habeck Trucking’s main lane.
