    is this the meet they used to call the “Texas Mile”? Looks like a good time! I’ve had a few opportunities to run an enclosed. And what you mentioned is why I don’t. my 6’5” 255# arse is not going to do well climbing in and out of cars like that especially with limited space! And add in the 100+ degree days and exhaust fumes....I’m alright in my 80’ open quick loader! My hats off to you bro!! Puttin’ in work in a rig like that!

    These guys in the bragging about how quick their load times are. You and I both know that if you're consistently loaded in less than 45 minutes, you are short cutting somewhere. Whether it's short strapping, crappy inspections, or running over straps, you're not doing it right you're doing it that quick. But it sure impresses the peanut gallery.

    I wish carhauling would go back to being full of carhaulers and not guys who haul cars like it is now.

    I have always been happy with loading in an hour and a half. I load the same way every day, but where my cars are parked makes the difference for me. Some people are quicker than me and some people are not.

    I watched a guy recently load in one of the “German manufacturers” yards in Baltimore. I was thinking dang he’s fast!! Loaded about a half hour faster than I did. I figured out why he was so fast on my way out. He got audited and had to break out the ladder and go back and put on all the straps he left off. What a pain in the donkey!! Lol. I’ll just go ahead and spend the half hour extra to do it right the first time.

    I wish I had video of the guys I worked with at my first car haul job. 8 units on Bankhead quickloaders with electric pumps. These guys would load and go in less than 30 minutes. Maybe 5 or 6 chains on the top and 2 on the back bottom, all day and night. Manager's would tell drivers at dispatch that they were going to audit loads in the Ford yard today. The mechanics sure got really busy having to fix air or hydraulic leaks on those days. And the terminal was always near the top for damage free and productivity. They'd give us a silver dollar for each damage free load we delivered and I swear guys worked harder to get those silver dollars than for a bigger paycheck.
