There's something truly special about waking up on Thanksgiving morning. Although we get to eat turkey, casseroles, and pies all day long, Thanksgiving serves as a reminder to take a few moments and express gratitude. We get to be surrounded by not just delicious food, but friends and family on this day.
Even though Thanksgiving is not here yet, we're going to take a few moments to express our gratitude. At US Cargo Control, we're thankful for our team and their courageous attitudes, but that doesn't stop there. We're tremendously grateful for the essential workers such as the truck drivers, medical experts, stork clerks, and more who keep our country running.
We put together a list of the top 9 cargo control products that we're grateful for. We heard from many people that these products have made their lives easier, and we especially hope one of our products will make your life easier too.
1. Moving Blankets
Moving blankets' sole purpose is to protect valuables from any damage, but they serve more purposes than that. A moving pad can soundproof a room to create your own home recording studio, can make a cushioned pet blanket to prevent their falling hair or claws from scratching, use as a blanket at the beach, or place on icy grounds below your feet for when you're unloading or loading groceries!
The Supreme Mover Moving Blanket is one of my favorite products. I just moved and realized how well these heavy blankets protect my furniture. They're soft, don't scratch, and protect my valuables from any damage because of their thickness.Leslie Lowdermilk, Senior Buyer
2. USCC Toolbag and USCC Mechanic Gloves
If you're a handyman or DIY expert, you're going to need accessories that will make your life easier. Our toolbag and mechanic gloves can help you get the job done faster and more efficiently. Your hardworking hands and tools deserve good protection and resilience, and we got you covered with our easy-to-carry tote and touchscreen-friendly, form-fitting gloves!
No matter the situation, tarps will always come in handy. You can protect your ATV, motorcycle, or boat for the winter with our large-quality tarps. Not only that, you can use a tarp for many creative applications such as a slip-n-slide, creating shade when camping, and wrapping and bringing games back from your hunting trip!
Even though truck drivers use tarps to cover their cargo, a tarp comes with never-ending possibilities.
My favorite items at US Cargo Control are the truck cargo nets. The versatility these provide for trucks as well as other securement applications are endless to our customers.Brennan Melloy, Sales Specialist
4. Recovery Straps
Recovery tow straps are invaluable pieces of equipment that are designed for recovery or towing uses. You can use these all year long, but they're extremely beneficial during the winter months. By having the heavy-duty tow straps in your truck or SUV, you can save someone's day by pulling them out of the ditch!

5. Ratchet Straps
We all know that the ratchet tie down strap is used to hold down cargo or equipment during transport. This is why we're grateful to have cargo straps because they allow us to be at ease knowing our items will be secured! With different sizes and functions, grab yourself a sturdy, high-quality strap that will perform the job successfully.
The 2" x 27" Rollup Ratchet Strap is my all-time favorite product. It's nice to have a reliable ratchet strap that eliminates excess webbing blowing in the wind. It just has an overall clean look and feel!Jake Feldman, Production Planner
6. Good-N-Tight Ratchet Strap Handle
Whether you're a trucker, farmer, logger, or someone who uses ratchet straps, you must have the Good-N-Tight Handle in your corner. It'll put less strain and stress on your back when tightening ratchet straps and you will be grateful for that.
7. Ratcheting Cargo Bar
Don't you hate it when your items in the back of your vehicle keep moving around, or you're worried something might break or fall out? The Ratcheting Cargo Bar is a life-saver because it will create a barrier to prevent items from moving around!
"It works great in the back of my truck to keep boxes and other items from sliding around!"Dan Roehr, Forecast Analyst
8. Corner Protectors
Ensure that your cargo (and your Christmas presents) get delivered damage-free with corner protectors. Protecting from harsh edges, they help lengthen the life of your ratchet straps by reducing friction and tension.
9. USCC Tumblr - 2 in 1 Can Cooler and Tumblr
Need a cup that can keep your drink cold or warm for hours? This versatile 2 in 1 Can Cooler and Tumblr will keep your drink temperature for 24 hours. Get yourself a Tumblr that will keep your cup of coffee warm for hours during the winter months (unless you love cold drinks).
