    12 moving blankets and maybe the same amount of carpet squares. The metal was so sharp it actually cut my shirt. Way worse than it looks. Seriously need to buy that felt.

    This is a load of mine from last week. Hill-AFB (SLC) to Davis MMonthan-AFB (Tucson) This is an A10 Warthog jet engine that was refurbished at Hill-AFB. I wasnt allowed to use my camera while on post at Hill of DM. The engine was mounted to its own little trailer and wrapped in a soft, padded and cushy waterproof condom. The whole load including trailer had to be covered by the tarp or they would not release me from the dock at Hill-AFB. Total weight was 4300lbs. Super easy!

    Now that is a load I wouldn't mind tarping.

    Out of curiosity what was the pay on that?

    Tostal miles I believe was 809.

    Pay was $2700

    I left my name and number with the logistics Sargeant and the civilian shipping coordinator and said call anytime. I have another one just like this in SLC for Wednesday that I'm en route to now.

    Holy ####! This is a troll post right? Hauling jet engines for 3 bucks a mile? Throw away tarps? Straps over the engine? Well they get what they pay for.

    Hopefully they hit you with a huge claim.

    Couple years ago one of the carriers brokered out a load picking at the airport, outside carrier strapped over top. Total loss, $11m claim. The brokered carrier only had $100k coverage, the brokering carrier ate #### on that.

    Sorry, this is not a "Troll Post". You obviously didn't look at my pics close enough to see the chains and binders under the bottom edge of my tarp that I used to secure the engines trailer to my deck. There is a diagram on each side of the engines trailer that depicts the securement requirements. The engine is secured to its own trailer by large dowel pins and bolts as well. No need for straps to secure the load .The straps are there to help prevent the tarp from flapping in the wind. They were also hand tight . I had to get permission from the dock supervisor to toss the straps over the engine.

    If you would like to meet me in SLC we can go on post together and you can watch me secure the next one without any damages.

    Just out of curiosity, when you first began to post here did other drivers beat you up with wild claims about your load and rate of pay without knowing any of the facts about it? Is that your way of retaliation? Just scream BS from the jump? It's okay if you don't believe me hence the offer to hop in the passenger seat and see for yourself.

    Your hopeful wish for my ill will says alot about your character as a man and a driver. Other than hoping for my financial ruin with a huge claim against me, is there anything else you'd like to wish upon me like a slow and agonizing painful death? Maybe I could get hit by another truck and never make it home to my family?

    I have hauled my fair share of engines being that I work at a company that hauls almost exclusively Aerospace freight. I have been around even more then I have hauled. There are only two hard and fast rules that apply to hauling engines. No securement anywhere except the lower stand and no bungees any where they can touch the engine. You are batting a thousand on ignoring those rules.
    As far as the hope of a claim that may be a bit harsh on my end. When guys that don’t have a clue about the freight they are hauling, or the proper equipment show up to haul a high value load for barely any premium in the rate it screws it up for everyone.

    You posted the rate btw. I completely believe you hauled that engine for 3 bucks a mile. I also know that broker probably kept more they you got off the original rate.
