    It will be a lot more than that. A step or dd is the cheapest option and they are both looking for more than 2 a mile.

    The cheapest way...find someone with a dolly. The kind they use to piggy back new trucks on. If it's a condo sleeper you will need a saddle...you've probably seen these on mercer trucks, we haul a lot of them for freightliner and kenworth. Pay the guy a few hundred to rent his dolly/saddle and use your truck to move it. You will then need to pay for a wrecker at each end to lift it on and off.

    have they changed their electronics policies? I have four laptops and 5 DSLR cameras, one regular camcorder and a cinema camera. Plus amateur radio equipment they didn't like. They didn't have a place to store those things like other places I've been to, and told me "there's the dumpster". We had some words about that after I told them I need to backup and make a phone call. Oh, and my cell phone too of course. What BS. I hope it's changed. I've gone to plenty of Nuke places where they have big lock-boxes and you just declare what you have and put it in there. Even firearms if that is the case, no problem. Those private security guards are the worst. Just my opinion of course.

    You must be thinking of a different place. At least i hope so. The one I'm thinking of has small lock boxes for small electronics, and they held on to my laptop. But honestly, how can you expect to have that much electronic and recording equipment and not raise a red flag when you try to enter an installation that builds freaking aircraft carriers?

    I do not cater to the "guilty until proven innocent" scenarios that run rampant through this country and especially in our industry. And, that everyone so willingly accepts being treated that way is even more disturbing. I particularly do not like being assumed to have criminal intent when I'm sure my security background is higher than most at one of those facilities. That's all I can say about that.
     
    Klleetrucking and A21CAV Thank this.

    and what about companies with company installed dash cameras? How do they handle that?
