The danger in trucking isn’t always with sketchy weather or poor road conditions. It can be as simple as just not tying down your load properly.
How many times have you seen a big truck with an even bigger load trying to negotiate around a tight corner looking like it was going to topple over? Or a flat deck with a load wider than the deck and not looking like it was centered? You can tie it down but if it’s not in the right place to begin with you’re going to have issues.
Big Rig Towing lifted this heavy 65,000 pound steel coil from it’s deck after it shifted during transport. Not an easy task to pick it up and transfer it to another trailer, but having state-of-the-art equipment makes a huge difference.
So why risk it? Know which tie-downs to use and how to safely strap down your load so it does not shift or affect your centre of balance.
