    I'm not laughing, and would join you, but you gotta wonder. There is a Lowe's distribution center in St Joseph, MO I drive by now and again that preloads TMC flatbeds. The spotter drops their tarps for them in a pull through bay and snugs them up ready for the driver to tuck and bungie. Whole lot of these trailers ready to go. Always makes me wonder when I see a tarp job by a company driver who's doing what.

    I've read posts from TMC drivers on here over the years that displayed absolutely no love for Lowes loads. Apparently they throw anything and everything on that trailer.

    I loaded there ONCE and that was it. Exactly, they loaded everything under the sun onto my flatbed. It was a nightmare. Then it took forever for them to unload me. They would take one thing off, scan it, verify it on the BOL then put it away.

    Lowe's and home depot loads are the ones you want to be tarped. Keeps the small stuff from falling or blowing off the way they load. Just my opinion.

    Trust me they don't I had to pick up brand new tarps for a few of ours two weeks later I picked up a load that had one of them on it and it looked like swiss cheese and some dipshet had cut holes in the middle to pull the tarp. Company put out a reward for info on who all I know is one guy I had been seeing several times a week I have not seen in a couple months.

    That is incredibly stupid, and defeats the whole purpose of tarping the load.

    Hopefully the idiot in question winds up paying for every tarp he "modified".
