Hauling utility trailors to tractor supply

I honestly don't know the answer, but I'm assuming the styrofoam compresses down as you tighten the straps. Anytime I'm picking up something unusual like that I find the guy loading me can almost always tell me how it's done. Ask them.

Thanks

Hauling utility trailors to tractor supply

I haven't been on here in a while but long story short..running step deck and have a question...i may have to go to Texas and pick up a load of utility trailors next week..iv been told when their loaded they stand at 14ft but once strapped you can get them down to 13.6..my question is if anyone has hauled them and how do you strap them to get em down that low..i think their shipped with tires and Styrofoam in between them..4 high on step and 5-6 on deck..any advice ? Thanks

Putting it all out there..

15 years at same factory ..factory shuts down. Acquired cdl ..6 months otr .enjoyed it..not the best or worst company..inlaws become sick with dementia and alltizmers..leave otr to take care of them till they pass while working a crap job driving one of those twin screw trucks with the forklift on the back (like you see at Lowe's) did for three years and was let go for arguing that the load they put on was unsafe and the truck was too..hindsite? Should of just took it but here we are..now during this job my arm was damaged and the Dr said I now have an essential tremor..(causes my arm to shake) doesn't effect my driving but does my writing..still passed dot physical for new med. Card . Small town ..no jobs..and got to do something..but I'm worried a company will not hire me due to my tremor..its embarrassing to stand in front of an instructor and shake ..and worse .what if their Dr doesn't pass me? I'm drug free and don't drink blood pressures good but I freakin shake ..iv been offered local work driving a concrete mixer for 13 bux an HR and don't even know if I should meet with them.but .with my experience (or lack of) the only companies otr are mega carriers and I'm afraid my tremor will stop me from being hired..if you were me what would you do? Again sorry for the long post and I hope it made since
