Available Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Truck rentals in Columbia, MD

Refrigerated Trucks

Refrigerated or reefer trucks are built with a refrigeration unit attached to the cargo area. These specialized trucks are used to transport cargo that needs to be kept at a specific temperature during shipping. Many of the units that refrigerate the cargos of these vehicles come with their own power source that is separate from the vehicle’s, which follows strict environmental guidelines. With many different sizes and even multiple zone refrigerated trucks available, you can register with COOP today to see what is available in Columbia right now!

Box Trucks

Box trucks include both a cab for the driver and an enclosed cargo area on the same chassis. These cargo vehicles take their name from their boxy appearance, and can also be called straight trucks due to their straight frame. Some cabins are separated from their cargo areas, while others may be open. Box trucks are often smaller and more maneuverable than other cargo trucks. This makes box trucks a great option for deliveries into areas that have smaller streets, busy roads, or tight parking spaces and availability. Often used for hauling appliances or furniture, box trucks are an excellent choice for smaller or medium-sized loads.

Stake Trucks

Stake trucks take their name from the removable stakes on the sides of the truck that are fitted into sockets. Built into a heavy-duty flatbed truck, these removable sides on stake trucks make them an easy option to transport large or heavy items, because this allows them to be loaded and unloaded from the sides. Stake trucks can be for heavy equipment, feed, livestock, and cargo, or nearly any type of cargo that you can load onto the back. With models available in many different sizes, the maximum weight capacity of stake trucks is related to the size. A 10 ft stake truck can carry 2,035 lbs, while a 20 ft stake truck can carry 3,345 lbs.

Truck Brands

COOP offers multiple brands of rentals in Columbia, MD, check below for some potential brands for rent depending on availability.


Isuzu is renowned for building some of the best diesel engines in the world for medium-duty trucks. The low cab forward design of Isuzu box trucks gives them better maneuverability and enhanced visibility compared to other brands. Known for being safe, tough, reliable, and built to last, Isuzu trucks are used around the world for many different jobs because of their performance. With different models like the NPR, NQR, NRR, and FTR, there is likely an Isuzu truck out there for whatever you need.

Thermo King

Thermo King has led the refrigerated transportation industry since the day the company brought the very first one to market. Their current models are built with fuel saver technology to reduce energy consumption, which provides increased cost savings over other brand refrigeration units. Download the COOP app today to check availability for anything from a 6 ft truck with the V-200 or B-100 unit up to the 22 ft truck with the V-800 MAX unit.

Truck Uses

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

Delivery Services

Trucks are known around the world for being dependable and tough, but modern advances in fuel efficiency and power have also made many trucks now also very fuel-efficient. Peterbilt brand trucks have more alternative fuel options on the market than any other brand. Peterbilt and other brands are now even developing electric engine trucks and tractors, working to make fuel costs a thing of the past. No matter what types of goods you deliver, there is likely an efficient, affordable, and dependable option available on the COOP app for you.

Frozen Foods

If there is one single aspect of delivering frozen foods that is the most important, it is ensuring that the food remains frozen until the moment you deliver it to your customer. Drivers need to know that they have dependable refrigeration units that will keep their frozen food as cold as when they picked up the cargo. With Thermo King-equipped reefer trucks available on the COOP platforms, you can choose from the seasonally available options to ensure your frozen foods always arrive at their final destination in pristine condition.


Whether you are delivering produce from farm to market, distribution facility to a grocery store, or are part of one of the new companies that deliver fresh ingredients for meals every day, the vehicles that deliver produce are extremely important. Whether you need a stake truck, refrigerated reefer truck with wooden floors for enhanced air circulation, or any other type of truck, COOP has what you need to get your produce delivered fresh!

Final Mile Delivery

Final mile delivery is just as important to the shipping process as the anchor runner in a relay race. Even if the rest of the supply chain has been late, you will be the face that the customer remembers for being late. Because final mile delivery can take you to so many different locations and environments, it is extremely important to make sure the correct type of vehicle is used. Box trucks and straight trucks can be an excellent choice for final mile delivery because they can traverse any terrain and have better fuel efficiency than other, larger cargo trucks.
