    All that’s got to be said is “general freight”. If they get pushy just lie and say “bags of manure”. Doubt anyone’s going to steal bags of dirt and cow ####.

    It's worth the extra 10 mile drive out to Balgonie which is even easier because of the new bypass.

    As a New Jersey resident I can vouch that you shouldn’t park anywhere in the state if you got a high value load.

    Every time I have scaled in recent years they never ask and the scale ticket always reads “freight of all kinds”

    i had worked with someone that had a Yugo.

    he and i went out for coffee, waiting for our trailers to be loaded. of course, i was very apprehensive, but then again, i had a Ford Pinto, so why not..??

    it actually ran quite well, had heat, (car had no factory a/c as i recall) and was ok on gas mileage.

    he would spin that thing around in the parking lot, and make me dizzy...lol...

    fun car, if anyone wanted a cheapo transportation. he liked it, the wife had the better car, if i recall a Buick Park Ave?

    I said I could del. a load of t/v to fulton indus. in Atl. for a friend whos truck was in K/W shop a few mi. from there, when I pulled in to park at gate the truck i parked behind had trailer doors open and t/v laying stacked up in piles around back of doors, when they opened gate 10 min later the driver took off in a hurry and more t/v fell out blocking my way to ware/house I hit air horn and driver had look of OOOO on his face, they had only taken the small ones that they could carry to projects at bottom of hill, when i bumped dock a row of t/v tipped over and was laying on dock, man pointed to stack of pallets and handed me a list of how many went on each pallet and what size pallet they went on, I pull Flatbed and never hooked to a van load after that ever, they said it was like that every mon. that the drivers that parked with no lock on doors were striped of t/v.

    For some unknown reason it’s referring to the Speedco repair ship just north of the Flying J. Some Speedco shops are franchised by Love’s.
