    hi folks I'm picking up at 2 a.m. at the Denver Coors plant 40,000 pounds of beer I guess to take to Southern California.
    my questions are: how early should I arrive at the plant for 2 a.m. pick up ?
    how long does it take to get loaded?usually and
    Do they have a scale on site or do I go to the nearest cat scale okay thanks preciate it.

    Yes scale on Site. Don't know what time to arrive Always Picked up a pre loaded trailer. It's pretty accurate but there's a TA 1 mile East on 70 In Wheeler Ridge. They have parking on the Road. On the side if you arrive early. Trailer has to be absolutely clean.

    you can go in any time. they have a scale but if your company doesn't have an account they will not scale you there, you'll have to go to the TA and scale. Load time is usually pretty good.

    When he says absolutely clean.... spotless. Gum wrapper in the corner? REJECTED. Dust film on the floor? REJECTED. Tears of frustration while vowing to never load there again... you got it.

    The TA is aways more than a mile east of the Coors Plant, just on the South side of I-70 and just on the east side of Ward Road, in Wheat Ridge, CO.

    As long as it's swept, you'll be fine. They don't even walk the inside of the trailer. Now, if you're picking up at RMMC ... that's a different story.

    Pulp? Dry van? Beer?
    I can make it pay. Get a $1.40, down hill all the way to KC and 8+ mpg.
