    Slick pine is horrible if not tied down right, straps only put pressure on the outside and 4-5 inner layers, the center will walk backwards or slam forward, from the rear all the way to the front.

    That’s awesome now he will either be trained better or dropped by his carrier. Too many lazy or uneducated people hauling flatbed in the last few years .

    An old trick hauling lumber that wants to wiggle out of the bundles. Just get a bottle of sugar 7 up or sprite. pour it on the loose boards, push them back into the bundle and keep going. That sugar gets sticky and holds them in place.

    Of course that's for a properly secured load, that's giving you problems.
