Simple, yet there is not enough attention on the safety equipment as there should be. 

There are some crucial points in the transportation business to keep in mind when acquiring a car hauler.

The situation today on the roads of the USA

This is a picture of a typical loading of trucks as seen on US-streets. This seems us as a quite complicated way of loading and transporting heavy duty vehicles. There is a lot of wasted time to load and unload tha hauler. There are only a few weak connection points between the load and the hauler. Such heavy load should not be the responsibilty of a few bolts and the drivers mood. Also a fork lift is needed to load the cargo, which you can not carry with you – so with problems on the road  it can come to difficult situations.
