    Slow. Steady. Turns.

    At least the first couple hours until you get your shelves loosened up.

    I figured that's what it was but to me lip loading just helps it fall off the shelf but I could be wrong

    Drive slower. I know what you mean always trying to hurry and this is what happens. Also having your preloader load your packages like they are in a moving vehicle instead of making colums that fall over every time you make a turn.

    The newer trucks seem to have stiffer rear springs than the older ones, older ones float like a Cadillac, new ones bounce around like a topless dancer if you drive too fast, slow down.

    Depends on the size of the package car how stiff the springs are.

    The newer 700's seem to bounce more than older ones, imo.

    True story... Years back when I first started utility driving, I was sent out blind on a very business heavy route. All supervisors were busy so my center manager told me he would meet me on route around 10:00 after his conference calls. So he meets me eventually and while riding with me he notices I am taking my turns too fast and packages are flying off the shelves. It was an old POS manual transmission and very difficult to get into 2nd gear. So instead of down shifting, I just took my turns faster in 3rd gear so I wouldn't have to shift as much.

    He tells me his is going to take over and drive to "show me how to drive smoother". So at the next stop he gets in the drivers seat, adjusts the seat, puts on his seat belt, hits the fob button, hits the ignition button twice, and.....................kills it. He never put the clutch in before starting it! I remind him of that day ever so often :biggrin:

    Your title reminds me of an Alicia Keys song.

    Tell the loader the stuff falls, they might not be smart enough to blame your driving. Maybe they'll seek help or advice to load it better.

    You need more volume in the car.

    I find that having them load me up with 500 pieces packs it in so tight that nothing CAN fall. Big help.
