First day flatbeding

My instructor showed me a similar photo of a coil that rolled into a cab. Not what I want to see right now!!! Lol. I wish I had the opportunity to be trained in flatbedding the way USA Truck trained me in dry van. They kept me in a tractor with a trainer for a month. But, thanks for the info. I'm going to go through that training right now. We all got our tractors and flatbeds on Friday. Everyone in orientation left as soon as they got their trucks except for me. I'm still sitting at the company's yard. Partly because I'm scared of doing the wrong thing, and partly because I want to make sure I have all of the tools I need. I wouldn't want to go pick up a load and get it canceled on me because I don't have the proper equipment. So I'll be sitting here till Monday. That's when the supply place will be opening. In the mean time I'll be checking out the training you spoke about. Hopefully it will give me a little more confidence into getting my first load. Thanks again.

First day flatbeding

Thanks for the feed back. I really do appreciate all of your words of encouragement. Though I know and will be open to a life long experience of learning, I feel that CRST Malone has given me a strong start with their training course. But please, I welcome any and all words of advice and knowledge about flatbedding. I hope I never get to the point of thinking that I know too much to be listening to someone about flatbedding. Hauling coils, pipes, beams, and sheet metal is really serious stuff. Thanks again

After two days of hands on training I think I picked the wrong profession, Lol. I'm aching all over!

First day flatbeding

Just completing my orientation at CRST Malone and getting ready to assume my first flatbed. I started dry van hauling in January 2015, after six years of 26' straight truck driving in NYC. Now 11 months later of switching to 53' dry vans, I'm switching to flatbed. It all seems overwhelming. So much new info to be worried about. Strapping, chaining, load-board, broker, qualcomm. All new to me. I'm really worried about me getting this right the first time. These 40000 lb coils and these 100 lb pipes need just slip a little and there will be nothing to stop it from moving. Any advise about flat-bedding will be highly appreciated.
