<h2>New And Used Flatbed Trucks</h2>
The flatbed truck presents one of the most versatile configurations, making it a firm favourite with businesses across the UK. Flatbed trucks can accommodate both wide loads and oversized loads, going way beyond the functionality of a simple trailer.
Flatbeds typically come in three forms; scaffolding, standard flatbed, and drop side. These configurations are incredibly flexible and present no restriction to height or obstructions on the body.
Our new and used flatbed trucks let you enter the market with an investment that fits your available resources. Our expert mechanics extensively check the used flat bed trucks that we have for sale to ensure they are in good working order, with plenty of miles left on the clock. If you are a sole trader or just starting out, then we will help you find the flatbed lorry and possible financing you may need.
If you have specific needs from your flatbed truck, then we can make modifications such as building a new cabin specification flat body with a hydraulic pull-out bar. A manufacturer’s warranty covers any changes we make.
Flatbed trucks, also known as platform trucks, are trucks that have an open, flat trailer bed with no sides or roof to enclose the cargo area. They are used to transport large and heavy items that cannot be easily loaded onto other types of trucks or trailers, such as machinery, construction equipment, building materials, and oversized cargo.
Flatbed trucks come in different sizes and weight capacities, and can be customised with various features to meet specific transportation needs. They are equipped with tie-down points, such as D-rings, stake pockets, or chains, that allow the cargo to be secured safely with straps or chains. Some flatbed trucks have crane or lift capabilities, making them suitable for loading and unloading heavy cargo in remote locations.
One of the advantages of using flatbed trucks is their versatility. They can transport a wide range of cargo, from small and lightweight to large and heavy, depending on the size and weight capacity of the truck. They are also easy to load and unload, and their open design allows for quick and efficient loading and unloading, reducing transportation time and costs.
Flatbed trucks are commonly used in industries such as construction, agriculture, and logistics, where large and bulky items need to be transported over long distances. They are also used in the transportation of oversized or overweight loads that cannot be transported on other types of trucks or trailers.
