Building Materials: Companies involved in residential or commercial construction often find themselves in need of a flexible transportation options for their materials. Flatbed trucking companies with the proper equipment are an asset to an industry where cargo shape, size, and weight are constantly in flux. From prefabricated homes to preformed concrete, lumber to scaffolding; a flatbed truck is the versatile solution that the construction industry relies on. A flatbed’s relative ease of loading and unloading makes it the ideal choice for construction sites.
Equipment and Machinery: Some heavy machinery is better suited for flatbeds and other open-deck equipment. Heavy or odd-sized equipment will not fit in traditional dry van trailers. In this instance, a flatbed truck service would be the safe and reliable solution. Other large-scale pieces of equipment, such as electrical substation transformers or larger machinery pieces, need to be transported by flatbed trailers. Their relative size and weight are simply not conducive for boxed trailers.
