Trust me...I'd love to! But due to the Holiday weekend, everyone is closed on Saturday and Monday. Due to my own work schedule I'd have to wait until next weekend to get ready mix delivered. Then I'd have to wait another 5 days for it to cure before I could continue on. That puts me 2 weeks out to start the frame (this is for a deck). Living in Massachusetts and knowing of the coming snow means I have to get it done asap, so unfortunately I just can't wait another week. (I can only really work on it on weekends)

thats because there are too many stupid people and lawyers out there and when they get together it gets ugly.

OP: seeing you're in MA, 4 trips, maybe 5, people drive like idiots down there.

Rent the van from Home Depot and do it in one trip assuming the drive is long.

the trailer would be the best option.
I dont recommend regularly exceeding the weight limit. if you have a crash, your gonna get nailed hard even if its not your fault.

I hauled 20 bags (1600 lbs) in mine for 60 miles on 6 different occasions. It squatted it, but not to the bumpstops, and I was able to easily cruise interstate speeds with the load. I did make sure to keep some extra room for stopping, although the brakes handled the load fine. Go easy on it, and you will be fine.

I blew out a bilstien with a pallet of sod, I would just do the trailer thing and make it in one trip, easier to load and unload too as a pallet just would slide in!
