The forklift is rated to 35,000 lbs, this moving company also has one rated to 100,000lbs. They were hired to load my trailer by customer, all customer forklifts only go up to 5,000lbs

Load was 11,000lbs... Forklift could not enter trailer, to heavy.. A question, think going through Chattanooga be good, been thinking about that? With load on the rear end, it’s going to Huntsville..

Surprised they ran this in a box, instead of a skateboard.

Looks like they had to extend the counterbalance on that forklift.

Man in my opinion that load should be illegal. That's a flatbed load all day long.

Be extra careful on turns because that load will be top heavy and those straps are doing nothing to hold it upright.

Also, if you're in mt Vernon going to Huntsville, you're not going through Chattanooga.

Your right, that doesn't look stable from swaying.....front to back looks "ok", but definitely turning corners be my concern. I hope it goes well.

Right?

If that thing goes over, it's going right through the wall of that box - and - hopefully, not into a van full of kids coming from the soccer game.

While you'd hope 11K lbs would keep it upright - nah, the base is too small.

I'm actually SAYING A PRAYER FOR YOU - for your safe arrival. Just looking at that scares me.

You need to secure your loads better. If I had any doubts of securement, I'd rather leave it there than take risks. Remember, once you accept the load, that's your baby.

If they put something in the middle of the trailer with no bracing, you can use one strap on the left side looped around the freight, then another strap on the right side looped around around the freight to counter each other.

I ain't no flatbedder - but there's NO WAY those straps are rated for even remotely the weight they're securing there. Nor are the walls or tie-down points on the walls rated for nearly the weight that's (attempting) to be secured. OK - the straps (if they 2") might be 3,300 apiece, but those walls and the E-Track are gonna rip right out. A securement is only as good as what it's SECURED TO.

That thing goes over, and it's going to destroy the trailer.

I know it's light (as far as GVW goes).

Is this a regular consignee? This almost looks like a "gas money gig", grabbed off a load board, just to get you back into freight lanes.

Weren't you stuck in a "dead zone" earlier in the week?

Consignee:

The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.
