At a contractor where i picked up some sand for making a bed for paving stones, they refused to let me drive off with just a load in the back, they knew i was unsafe and didnt want to let me leave. I said its ok, i'm going to pick up a vibratory compactor, which i need after ive wheelbarrowed in this pile of sand, so i want that up front... "ah, ok then... We just dont want you to leave with an unsafe load, we are the professionals so we feel obliged to take some responsibility for inexperienced private citizens who get stuff from here.Don't be afraid to tell the loader how you want it loaded, after all it is you that will be prosecuted not them.
Actually i like that mindset a lot better than the mindset at the other contractor, or at the quarry where giving private people trouble seems to be a sport...
