    So there a load on dat board not really impressed with the rate at all but would get us close to home but it says wire baskets. When I googled wire baskets and you tube wire baskets, slinkies come up. Just wondered if any of you hauled wire baskets before.

    I would assume it kind of resembles a shopping cart. Just a basket made of wire kind of like that. I can't tell you for sure though.

    Wire baskets are used on balled & burlap trees, but I don't know if that's what you are talking about. They are usually hauled in dry boxes though.

    Did they mean paving baskets? I used to haul them all the time for a previous company.

    I’m not sure. Not so sure we going that route. Was thinking we going to get close to home but maybe staying out a little longer. Thanks for the responses.

    Jb hunt has the contract with Bridgestone/ Firestone now since BFS sold off their fleet. Big wire baskets are used to haul some smaller tires in lots sometimes. They are basically steel pallets with heavy wire mesh sides. Like a man lift cage. Could possibly be those?

    If it’s gabion it won’t be a bad load. They pack flat for shipping.
