Step-Deck Flatbed Trailer
A step-deck flatbed trailer is a great variation of the traditional flatbed trailer for drivers who are looking to transport tall cargo. This flatbed trailer has two levels: the first level which is of standard height and attaches to the truck pulling it, and the second level which drops down to a lower height, allowing for taller cargo to be loaded and still be below the clearance level needed for bridges and tunnels.
Aluminum Floor Flatbed Trailer
Traditional flatbed trailers with aluminum floors are a great choice for transporting freight in milder climates. This flooring type is advantageous because it doesn’t rust and is mold-resistant, helping to protect the cargo you transport and making it less susceptible to weather conditions. These trailers are recommended for milder climates though because they can be very slippery when ice forms on the surface, more so than alternative flooring types, and they can be loud when loading or walking on these trailers.
Wooden Floor Flatbed Trailer
Wooden floor flatbeds can be seen almost everywhere, but they are not all made the same. The types of wood used for flatbed trailer floors include douglas fir, rough oak, and southern yellow pine. Though each type of wood has its benefits and drawbacks, all of them are treated to be resistant to chemicals and rotting and are made to be strong and durable for your freight and cargo loading needs. A drawback of wooden flooring is that it can warp due to elements, but it absorbs cold and icy conditions better than a metal-bed trailer.
Great Dane, an American manufacturer with its headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, has been making trailers since 1900. The first trailers this manufacturer specialized in were flatbed trailers, but by 1934, they added both tank trailers and enclosed vans to their offerings. Three trademark models of flatbed trailers you may find available for rent include Great Dane Freedom SE, the Great Dane Freedom LT, and the Great Dane Freedom XP.

Don't just take our word, hear what COOP customers have to say about our platform.
“The supply of short-term rental trucks was almost impossible. COOP was able to help by connecting us to equipment Owners that weren’t utilizing their fleets.”
“I like the convenience of being able to pick up the vehicles when I need them, check them out on the app, take pictures, and get on the road.”
Flatbeds can be seen transporting entire homes and raw materials such as lumber used for construction purposes all across the country. Their durable flooring, combined with their open sides for easy storage make it a possibility for wide loads and a variety of things to be transported that otherwise wouldn’t fit into an enclosed trailer.
Without long heavy-duty trailers, many large trees and other forces of nature wouldn’t be able to be cleared from the properties and roads that they pose a hazard on. In addition to the natural items, landscapers rely upon flatbeds to transport, flatbeds also help to transport large machinery for doing their landscaping work.
Heavy Freight Hauling
Because they lack sides, flatbed trailers are great for any type of oversized heavy freight hauling that wouldn't fit into an enclosed trailer. Though this makes it a popular choice for construction and landscaping industries, many other industries, including manufacturing companies, use flatbeds for their heavy freight hauling needs.
