What's the game plan Mik?

Maybe that one piece is now many pieces. I hope not for Mik's sake.

If I was you I would stop at the first pilot and get a large cup off coffe with no lid. Sit it on your dash board and drive as careful as you can not to spill the coffee. That’s about how stable your load looks.

That is actually the funniest, yet, crazy seriously best idea.

That definitely should not be in a van. The only way would be if it were securely mounted to some kind of custom built frame similar to how Caterpillar ships their engines. There's nothing securement wise that you can really do to make sure all the potential variables are satisfied to keep that from moving

Hope it went well Mik.

(Just don't recall a wish and a prayer as securement devices!)

Is freight typically more expensive to run on a flatbed as opposed to dry van?

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

I would like to hear Susan comment on this. I know she hauls forklifts in a box from time to time.

I hauled forklifts in my limited time at West Side and all their weight is on the bottom making them more stsble, unlike this which is top heavy and should be shipped in a crate.

Even if crated... shouldn't it be blocked and/or braced (front and back and side to side)?
