    Tricity canvas is closer to you in granite city, Illinois. They make great tarps in my opinion. You would need a 24x26 with no flaps and d rings all around. Most “machine tarps” are at least 30x30 FYI.

    Some milling machine ...he offered $100 ...lol... Told him 350 , he threatened to file a claim because i refused to tarp for 100... I doubt i will be able to tarp it myself somewhere lifting 100lbs 8 footer... Confirmation clearly says NO TARP , when saw the load - called dispatch to make sure

    Broker hosed himself. Just deliver as is, keep the confirmation as proof of "No Tarp" order and bill as normal.

    Yep, he screwed himself.

    Obviously that stuff cant get wet, so the good natured person in me would tarp it if there was a good chance Id be going through some rain, because its not the customers fault and they don't need to have their stuff ruined.

    But $350 in tarp fees sounds about right. That #### aint simple to tarp.
