When it comes to trucking, the dangers on the road aren’t always related to poor conditions or bad weather. Sometimes, it’s as simple as failing to secure your load correctly, causing it to shift dramatically. That’s why understanding which tie-downs to use and how to safely strap down your cargo is absolutely crucial.
Have you ever witnessed a massive truck navigating a tight corner too fast, teetering precariously under the weight of its load? Or seen a flatbed with cargo wider than the deck itself, clearly not centered properly? Even if you tie it down, improper placement spells trouble.
At Big Rig Towing & Recovery, we’ve encountered situations like these. We recently had to rescue a massive rig whose load shifted during transport. It’s no small feat, but having state-of-the-art equipment makes all the difference.
