  1. When to Upgrade Your System

    Sometimes it's tough to know when it's time to make the investment into yourself and get a tarping system that is designed to help you make more money. With so many new truckers coming onto the scene there are so many questions they may ask themselves but this one is a common one. We would like to help with some of the questions that circle that topic.

    CAN I EARN MORE WITH A SYSTEM?
    Throw tarping can be an exhaustive and time consuming process. You may find that you are starting to turn down one or two loads because of the time it might take covering, uncovering and tying everything down. This time could have been saved by simply rolling your whole system open and latching down your haul. This is a common issue for drivers and one of the best indicators that you are ready to start earning more.

    HOW CAN I SAVE ON DOWNTIME?
    One of the biggest fears any driver faces is 'downtime'. When a driver isn't running, they are not making money. This can be remedied by addressing two things:
    1.)  How is the service with your provider?
    2.)  Does not having a tarping system keep you from hauling more?

    Although the latter question can only be answered by each driver, here at Tarpstop we pride ourselves on having some of the best service in the industry, while keeping our customers on the road so they can make money.

  2. Why Maintenance is important

    Are you a long-haul operator and considering the ease of service while on the road? Can repairs be made by any tarp or trailer shop? How about those covered by warranty; can you get the work done on the road or do you have to return to the manufacturing facility?

    Retractable Tarping Systems are made to last up to 10 years, but will require service over that time. The biggest question to ask yourself is, “How quickly will repairs be made?" Here at Tarpstop, our motto "Running Through Walls" was created out of our intense passion for keeping truck drivers on the road and making money. We have service partners across the US ready to provide service and support for your load coverage and securement needs.

    QUICK TIPS AND TRICKS
    One thing every operator should do is wipe down the rail every time they have loaded. Keeping the track clean can save tons in the long run in replaced wheels and bearings. Drivers should also inspect the system for loosened connections and regularly replace rail protectors. Any rips or tears should be duct-taped immediately and taken in for proper repairs as soon as possible, before the damage gets worse.
