The Real Value of Corner and Edge Protectors
Corner and edge protectors represent a rather insignificant investment on the part of the flatbed truck. They cost a lot less than tarps, winch straps, and just about all the other cargo control supplies you might purchase. They certainly cost less than paying for damaged cargo. However, the real value in corner edge protectors is not found in the retail price. It is found in what they do for the truck driver. Just to be clear,corner and edge protectorsare used to eliminate direct contact between cargo and tarps and, when necessary, other pieces of cargo. They can be made of steel, plastic, or rubber. Mytee Products carries 14 different options in a variety of styles, materials, and colors.
Edge Protectors Save You Money The first thing corner and edge protectors do for the truck driver is save money. How so? Remember, truck drivers are responsible for the integrity of their loads from the moment of pick up until the time of unloading. If anything arrives damaged, the driver could be financially liable. Flatbed truckers commonly carry cargo insurance for their own protection. But keep in mind that insurance rates stay low only if the driver does not make any claims. By investing a small amount in corner and edge protectors, drivers are reducing the likelihood of damaged cargo that could result in an insurance claim. They are keeping their insurance rates as low as possible at the same time. That saves money. Corner Protectors Protect the Driver’s ReputationAs a flatbed trucker, you may not run into too many shippers willing to mandate the use of corner and edge protectors. Yet theLJ still edžpeĐt LJou to take good Đare of the Đargo LJou are ďeiŶg eŶtrusted ǁith. DoŶ’t LJou thiŶk shippers are paLJiŶg attention to what you do? Of course they are.
When shippers and receivers know a truck driver voluntarily uses corner and edge protectors, they think more highly of that driǀer. It goes ǁithout saLJiŶg that a driǀer’s reputatioŶ to proteĐt Đargo is iŵproǀed ǁith eǀerLJ effort takeŶ to properly protect cargo. Furthermore, drivers with good reputations for cargo control get the most lucrative loads more often. Edge Protectors Reduce Driver Anxiety You can value your edge and corner protectors in dollars and cents simply by keeping track of how much money you spend on them. But those little pieces of plastic and metal can do something for you that cannot be valued in terms of money: they can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your anxiety. Anxiety over protecting cargo is part and parcel with flatbed trucking. Preventing damage is always at the back of the truĐker’s ŵiŶd, as it should ďe. But ǁhLJ ďe ŵore aŶdžious thaŶ LJou Ŷeed to ďe? Better LJet, ǁhy be anxious at all? If you use corner and edge protectors the way they are supposed to be used, the risk of damage from contact with other surfaces is minimal. So is the risk of damage from road vibration.
