What Type of Tarp Do I Need ?
Pulltarps offers multiple different types of tarps for all of your hauling needs. We work with sand and gravel companies to find the right type and size of tarp for each industry. The California DMV states that it is against the law to operate on the highway a vehicle which is improperly covered, constructed, or loaded so that any part of its contents or load spills, drops, leaks, blows, sifts, or in any other way escapes from the vehicle. Sand is one of the most – hauled materials; common applications for sand include concrete and asphalt mixing, backfill, water filtration, and snow control. Road base, on the other hand, is used for foundation, highway beams, road stabilization, pipe bedding, drive ways, pathways and construction road entrances. Whether you work in landscaping, roadwork, waste management, or construction, we have a tarp for your haul.
