    Where in Texas?

    In DFW area Double C canvas has securement and decent tarps.
    They are in Midlothian.

    Might get enough securement to get by and book a load to granite city for tarps (tri city canvas). Joplin tarps place has good ones also. Maybe someone knows better tarp places in Texas.

    I’m out of San Antonio.The only ones I know of are Marco’s truck tarps and the one you mentioned which is substantially more expensive than Marco’s.Was hoping there was another place that had even better prices than Marco’s.

    Maybe @God prefers Diesels knows better places down that way.

    What all do you need?

    Facebook marketplace will sometimes have great deal when people realizes it is a bit of work and go to dry van.

    If you buy used chains or straps or tarps etc look them over well. Straps are cheap so unless they are new I normally pass.

    I got my tarps from Solutions Tarps. They're not the greatest, or the worst. Everything else I got at MidCo. Pricey, but quality. Twenty straps, 30 edge protection, 20 steel edge protections, 10 3/8 chains and boomers, winch bar. Good Crosby boomers too. Came out to around $2,300 at MidCo.

    Houston Truck Tarps has always treated me right. Good people, good prices. I would never buy used securement devices, that’s just me tho.
