    We always did the same thing when we hauled redwood/cedar and other weird specialized wood products. They would cringe when they heard the straps crush it but our standard reply was "you should see how bad it's damaged when it falls off the truck!"

    Had an agent call me today with another lumber load. It paid REALLY well and was "antique wood". I could only shine the delicate hands they would want hauling that crap. Plus it needs tarped, so I passed.

    the kubota wood crates are terrible...you crush them and there is no securement...only way i found is to put straps right on each corner and tighten till the wood starts to pop

    They're not terrible, it still takes me a LONG time to get them secured and tarped (1 1/2 to 2 hours with weigh time included) but it takes 2 tarps, 4 foot drops + a smoke tarp in the back because the 4 foot's aren't long enough.

    I pre-loaded some today for another driver but I was in a hell of a hurry and didn't get to take any pics.
