Available Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of truck rentals in Arlington


Lowboy flatbed trucks, just as the name suggests, are often extremely low when compared to other flatbed trucks. They are characterized by two drops at the deck, one after the wheels and the other one after the gooseneck. They can carry a maximum freight weight of up to 40,000 lb and can have lengths of 24 ft- 29.6 ft.

Double Drop With Detachable Deck

Double drop flatbed trucks are as wide as 8.6 ft and have a total length of 48 ft with a bottom well as long as 28 ft. They can carry a maximum legal freight weight of 42,000 lb and a legal height of 11.8 ft. The double drop aspect which creates the bottom well allows the hauling of freight that is cumbersome to carry with traditional flatbed trucks.

Removable Goosenecks (RGN)

Removable goosenecks have length and width limits of 29ft and 8.5ft respectively. As opposed to conventional flatbed trucks, RGNs have extra axles which is why they can carry very heavy loads. The maximum legal freight weight for removable goosenecks is 150,000 pounds and can be as high as 11.6ft. Also, they make it easy to load cargo since they have a ramp that can be pulled from the main deck.

Box Trucks

Most box trucks have a low cab-over design that allows a tight turning radius. This also makes it easy to maneuver over tight areas, rendering them efficient for business. Also, most box trucks have a cargo space of 960 cu ft. and a maximum load capacity of 6,000 lbs.

Stake Trucks

A notable difference between straight trucks and stake trucks is that the latter has an open roof and removable sides that make it easy to load/unload. Also, some of them are as long as 24 ft., creating room for more loads.

Refrigerated Straight Trucks

In terms of length, Reefer straight trucks range from 22 to 26 ft. They can conveniently carry loads of up to 13,000 lbs and have a maximum cargo space of 1,600 cu ft. Transporting with reefer straight trucks guarantees safety as they are equipped with E-Track systems. Also, the hydraulic lift gate and side doors make it easier to load and unload.

Straight Trucks

A lot of straight trucks are able to carry heavy loads over long distances. They have automatic power steering and transmission for easy driving. Also, they have side doors and dock height with hydraulic lift gates or ramps which make loading and unloading easy.

Refrigerated Box Trucks

Refrigerated box trucks are also known as reefer box trucks. Most of them have a maximum load capacity of 7,000 lbs and a GVW of 17,950. This makes them ideal for transporting perishable goods, whether heavy or light over a long distance.

Road and building construction usually involve a lot of heavy machinery and equipment. And sometimes, this equipment is oddly shaped and cannot be carried by enclosed trucks. That is why flatbed trucks are used to haul construction equipment to and from the job site. All the specifications allow them to haul the large and heavy equipment used in construction. Also, they are used to remove scrap materials after all construction and building work is done. 

Towing Services

Instead of hiring a towing company to get the job done for you, you can access a suitable flatbed truck on COOP and do the job yourself. Also, if you have a small startup towing business, then a flatbed truck would be a good start before you acquire more trucks to expand your business. Ports and dealerships also need to tow vehicles, and a convenient way of doing so is through flatbed trucks. 


Flatbed trucks, also known as stake trucks, are used for different farm applications. They are used for carrying fertilizers, farm equipment, and farm animals.

Also, they are strong enough to maneuver rough terrains in a farm or ranch setting.
