What Is a Flat Deck Trailer?

A type of open deck trailer, it has no sides or roof, providing quick loading and unloading. It is also very versatile, making it the perfect equipment for carrying industrial commodities. It is the best option for goods that are long or required to be lifted by a crane or a forklift.

It is perfect for heavy loads such as:

• Machinery

• Tubing

• Scaffolding

• Steel products

• Construction equipment

• Tubing

 Types of Flat Deck Trailers

Step deck trailer

This has a lower and an additional higher deck providing the capability to haul tall cargo. 

Extendable flat deck trailer

This goes up to 90 degrees and it can be used for carrying cargo that’s too long for a standard flat deck trailer.

Lowbed trailer

This is ideal for oversized goods. It is majorly used when the height of the cargo is too tall even for a step-deck trailer. It will also have an improved centre of gravity, perfect for heavy loads. 

Why You Should Consider Flat Deck Trailer Rental

Selecting the suitable appropriate equipment for moving your cargo is one of the most important things to do in logistics. If you don’t put any effort in this, there are high chances that you will spend an excess of time and money. 

Here are a few benefits of flat deck transportation to be considered:

Ease of loading

This is because of the open nature of the trailer. Enclosed ones will have a limited space which makes it difficult to load large cargo. On arriving at the intended destination, the goods can also be unloaded easily in a relatively short time.

Variety of material

This equipment is very useful if you have to transport large quantities of different materials at the same time. If there is a work on a housing project, material for interior work, wood for basic framing and other essential supplies can be simultaneously moved. This also helps in cutting shipping costs and accelerates project completion.

No loading dock

Flat deck trailers do not need to have access to a loading dock for unloading cargo. This is a crucial element that makes flat deck trailers very appealing to businesses.
