Available Box Truck Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Box Trucks listed for rent in Columbia, MD include:

Conventional box trucks

Conventional box trucks have their engine placed in front of the cabin, giving them the appearance of having a nose. This makes conventional box trucks longer than other models, but also gives them a longer wheelbase which can make the driving experience more enjoyable, since the wheels sit just in front of the cab.

Cab Over Engine

With the engine placed directly underneath the cab of these box trucks, Cab Over Engine models have a few unique advantages. This placement gives Cab Over Engine box trucks a closer turning radius and also allows for a larger windshield and better visibility. If you deliver to busy areas that would be easier with enhanced maneuverability, a tighter turning radius and a greater field of view, Cab Over Engine box trucks may be the right choice for you.

Refrigerated Box Trucks

Available in either single zone or multiple zone temperature models, refrigerated box trucks (also called reefer trucks) have refrigerated units that allow the cargo to be kept at specific temperatures. If you deliver perishable or temperature-sensitive products, refrigerated box trucks can help you keep your cargo cold.

Box Truck Uses

The commercial fleet vehicles rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for Box Trucks rented on COOP.

Flower Delivery

If you are in the business of flower delivery, the quality of your cargo when you deliver it is more important than in nearly any other business. Often presented to loved ones or used as decoration for special events, flowers need to be exquisitely cared for in transit so they arrive just as beautiful as the day they were picked. For your flower delivery needs in Columbia, COOP has refrigerated or “reefer” box truck options available on the COOP app available to rent. Download the app now to find the right option to help deliver your precious cargo!

Appliance Hauling

Most appliances today include simple or highly complex electronic components, meaning they can be destroyed if not protected from the elements. With fully-enclosed cargo areas, box trucks are a great choice for appliance delivery. If your business needs to haul appliances in Columbia, download the COOP app to find the perfect box truck for your needs today!

Final Mile Delivery

While other types of deliveries will take you to the loading docks of stores or distribution centers, final mile delivery can take you just about anywhere, often in rural areas that are difficult to reach. Despite this difficulty, final mile delivery can be seen as the most important link in the supply chain, up to you for the products to arrive on time. Whatever type of terrain your last-mile delivery will take you to, the COOP app has box truck options that can help your business get your deliveries where they need to go.


Do I need to bring my own insurance to rent on COOP?

You may bring your own coverage, but COOP offers physical damage and a $1M liability policy to qualified renters.

Is a box truck affordable to rent through the COOP app?

We have many different types of box trucks available for rent on the COOP app, depending on your location and seasonal availability. The vehicles on our platform have extremely affordable and competitive prices. The cost to rent a box truck from the COOP app typically starts from $42 for a small dry truck or from $71 for a large dry truck, and COOP offers discounts for rentals that last more than a week.

What size box truck would I need for delivering medical supplies?

The size of the box truck required to deliver medical supplies will depend on the weight and type of cargo that you are delivering. If your cargo is temperature-sensitive, COOP has reefer box trucks that can facilitate that. If your medical supply cargo is non-perishable and non-temperature sensitive, a standard box truck will be a great option. If you download the app and join COOP, you could rent a large 26ft box truck to conveniently move your cargo.
