Available Tractor Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Tractors listed for rent in Columbus, OH include:

Refrigerated Trailers

This type of trailer is installed with refrigeration systems making it suitable for the transportation of temperature-sensitive goods such as fresh produce, dairy products, flowers, and pharmaceuticals. They are also known as reefer trailers and can be customized with a single layer of temperature to suit the delivery of similar goods or multi-layered temperatures that are perfect for the transportation of goods with different temperature requirements. A multi-temp reefer trailer is economical since you don’t have to source different trailers.

Dry Van Trailer

Just as their name suggests, dry van trailers are also known as dry trailers and are used for hauling dry products. They are fully enclosed making them perfect for hauling delicate, non-perishable goods such as appliances and furniture. Since they are enclosed, you don’t have to worry about spoilage because they offer protection from rain, snow, and extreme heat.

Flatbed Trailers 

Flatbeds are simply platforms without walls or roofs, making them perfect for hauling oversized loads and those with abnormal dimensions. They range in sizes which means you can easily get one that best suits your needs. They are created to withstand extremely heavyweights such as construction equipment e.g, bulldozers and cranes. 

There are different types of flatbed trailers, for example, those with removable goosenecks and fixed, double drops, and extendable ones thus giving you a wide range to choose from. Loading and unloading is also easy since you can drive onto them, push/pull the load or place it from above or the sides using cranes. It all depends on the nature of the load.
