    I can’t criticize that too bad. Mine looked a bit like that when I first started hauling shingles long ago.

    This was from a few months ago, picked up this pre-loaded trailer to.take to Illinois. Had to re strap the entire load and move skids around with a forklift. Thankfully nothing was too damaged

    Come on. They're hardwood. They'll absolutely keep 4 tons from moving with just one strap. You don't want me to spend all day securing that do you? /s

    Right? LOL

    My only question is, how can someone drop that trailer and leave that mess for another driver to clean up...that put me 3 hours behind schedule. Dispatch wouldn't tell me who the driver was. Common courtesy ain't too common anymore!!

    You should have promised that you will not "talk" with him about common courtesy on company property.

    Sorry I did my job and got it there. I got places to go,
    gotta go, see ya.

    I do understand your frustration tho, but it's not the previous drivers responsibility any more.
    Maybe the trucking company should pay you for the 3 hrs.

    Like the oilfield. We used to say "When I die, I want night crew to lower me in the grave, so they can let me down one more time."

    Gotta love it when people spend more time doing shortcuts than it would have taken to just do it the right way. At least you got yourself some extra dunnage lol.
