    I wondered what happened the way that trailer was angled toward the ditch. I was at that J last night. Y'all be safe.

    It definitely looked worse than it was. Brakes locked up immediately causing the trailer to fish tail. Good thing I was empty.

    So glad I found this thread. I'm considering coming over to play with y'all from my current HH job. My question is how are they about getting you permits and all if those legalitys? Feel free to PM if needed.

    In the way of delivery? I had a printer on the truck and a jailbroke iphone for internet... my DM would get them in and forward them to my email. I also created my own receipt and charged $1.00 per page to the company and filed for reimbursement. They didn't have a problem paying the 1.00 vs. the 3.00 or more per page. The printer, ink, and all paper is a tax writeoff at the end of the year since it is on the truck and not at home. Otherwise, you would have to have them faxed to a number and you pay for them. I also had my own web fax number with a popular company (also a write off) so I could just send stuff when they needed it and I couldn't send via email. It was WAY more convenient using these methods.

    But, once you have the dimensions of your load you call in with them and the company starts ASAP on getting the permits for you. Your not responsible for that part unless you travel through WY.. which you have to get at the port.

    Would it happen to be split into sections, such as this? or is it a single piece?

    The ones we have to move are complete with liners in them. I am trying to confirm the weight of them.
