Flat Bed Trailer Hire
Flat Bed Trailers are flat based trailers that are sturdy and corrosion resistant. Designed with specifications for easy manoeuvrability despite their length, trailers in this range are used by construction, transport, councils and other similar industries requiring trailers suitable for carrying long heavy loads often and for easy transport of bikes and other small vehicles. Hiring a flat bed trailer enables the business to focus on its own infrastructure needs and utilise the services of a trailer hire company when a customer or a job requires the specialised functions of a flat bed trailer.
What is a Flat Bed Trailer?
Forestry workers and others who work in industrial settings often require the use of flat bed trailers to carry their loads flat and in whole pieces. Conventional trailers may allow the haulage of small loads, but for many loads, the requirement for haulage secured on a flat base such as mowers, tractors and other plant equipment makes the flat based trailer ideal. Wheels located under the body provide stability and turntable hitches and tri-axles add to the stability for heavy haulage.
A range of features can be added to develop a trailer suited for individual customer’s requirements. Some trailers have detachable sides that allow safer haulage for smaller loads. These sides can be attached during travel and removed when loading and unloading the contents. Most come equipped with a winch and ramp to assist with the loading and unloading of loads not requiring placement by a crane or other heavy machinery. Other accessories are conveniently stored under the body and include ladders and hitch locks.
Individuals may find a smaller flat bed trailer useful for transporting cars and small vehicles in preference to using a towing company. Hire companies can provide locking devices that secure the load on the truck for safe transport.
