Tie Downs Available to Secure Loads in Pick up Trucks


January 2008

Tying down loads is the law and prevents serious incidents caused from loose debris.

All of Fleet Service short term rental and UCAR pick-up trucks have tie down straps located behind the driver's seat. Tie down nets will be provided for long term pick-up trucks by request. Stop by the shop or call 685-1564 for more information.
