    Hauling frack valves is a challenge. The way this company has to set them on the deck requires dunnage with all the weight on very small points.

    No chains allowed, unless there is a chaining point. The three frack trees on the back required three 4" straps, then a 2" strap on either side to stabilize them. I've hauled this load before and it's been a problem load, with split dunnage or the frack trees sliding off the dunnage. This load arrived perfectly, with minimal tightening when I stopped to check the load.

    Good for you on scoring that load in the first place, Lepton.
    Don't the hot shotters usually haul those?

    Stop 1, 3 and 2. 2 was a tight back off a street into a loading bay. 3 was back in off the street, through a parking lot, around a jog through 2 rows of cars, back down through 2 rows of cars, blindside back around 2 corners, then blindside back into a loading bay. With a 53' spread. (Truck pictures are as I'm pulling out of the bay leaving)

    No ####? Whattup with shippers or receivers that rely on trucks and put in obstacles to business.

    Nice securement by the way.

    Thanks. I got the trailer with no chains, had to use 4 of my tail chains.

    They legitimately sent two guys out as spotters. And said a lot of that stuff goes for scrap in the spring time. They were first class to deal with. But yeah, lots of GOALs today. Greyhound bus in a doghouse.

    Secured.

    These are regular loads for me, we haul mostly machinery...this one was light and easy....I know my tarp job isnt perfect but neither are my tarps or the guy throwing them.

    Loaded more turbine parts today. Gonna leave tomorrow afternoon. Not sure how late they are working down there but usually it's a 24/7 thing so might even be able to deliver if I get there late tomorrow night or early Monday morning.
