Why Won't This Company Let You Tarp On Their Property?

I have been to a few places that have instructions like this. Like a couple of people said most of the time I have seen it is do to not enough space for trucks to be taping and them also being able to load and unload trucks. I have also seen places where the tarping area has a like open barn with tarp lifts..etc. Like turtle said it can take a little time to a long time to be secured and tarped depending on the load.

Flatbed securement question

I know I am putting in my opinion late, but I agree I would do some belly wrap the load, I usually would put a strap before and after dunage, and also I always figure 5000 lbs per strap for ease. Again no such thing as over secure
