    I have been mostly dealing with cheap loads like lumber and steel. What are some higher value flatbed loads?? Anybody have any thoughts. Thanks

    Nobody, because they run team to secure/expedite that multimillion dollar piece of equipment.

    I've not seen a jet engine, but a large engine. Possibly ship/ vessel motor or something. I see many wind turbine blades too.

    A high value load is something that can be easily stolen and sold. Unless yous are talking about high paying freight instead of cheap freight. there is a difference in the two terms:)

    Then you have farm or construction equipment, those are pretty expensive (and not on a flatbed).

    I hauled a jet engine as a broker load from a GE plant to a GE plant once.

    It was brokered out but Southern Pride.

    I'm a single driver not a team.

    It's insurance requirements more than anything. We were insured for 5 million.

    It was a joke.
