Standard Flatbed Trailer
Standard flatbed trailers are popular flatbeds which usually measure about 53ft in length and 8.6ft in width. These flatbed trailers can haul loads of up to 48,000lbs limited to 8.6ft in height. They are designed to reduce the hassle of loading and unloading cargo since it can be loaded from either of the sides or the top.
Extendable flatbeds are an upgrade of flatbeds and are also called flatbed stretch trailers. While they carry freight too large for standard flatbeds, they ensure that the loads do not overhang during transportation. They can haul loads of up to 43,000lbs, which can be as high as 8.6 inches. They can also be as long as 80ft and have a maximum width of 8.6ft.
The maximum length for double drops is 29ft, and a maximum legal freight height of 11.6ft. Also, the maximum freight weight for double drop trailers is usually 42,000lbs. The part used to haul freight is known as a well, which connects the front and the back deck of the trailer. The measurements of the front, well, and back deck of the trailer varies in terms of the length, width, and height of the freight they carry.
Stretch Single-Drop Deck
The main deck of a stretch single-drop deck can be as long as 63ft and as wide as 8.6ft. The main deck can also carry freight with a maximum height of 10ft and as heavy as 45,000lbs.

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.”
Tall Freight Haulage
Most flatbed trailers are used for the transportation of tall freight. Flatbeds do not have sides or a roof and that is why they are the best for hauling items that are taller than standard freight. They have the right features to enable them to carry really tall freight without violating any road safety rules and regulations.
When tires become worn out and can’t be used anymore, they are distributed for recycling. Old tires are compressed to make bales in which they are transferred in, and these bales are heavy duty. To move them from the yard to the recycling point, they are out in bales. Flatbed trailers are then used to haul these bales to their respective destinations where they can be used for other purposes.
Building and Construction Materials
Materials used in building and construction, eg, metal piping, cranes, I-Beams, and steel frames, etc, are usually hauled by flatbed trailers. Most of these construction and building materials are oddly shaped and hence can only be hauled using flatbed trailers.
The design of flatbed trailers makes them ideal for forestry and landscaping applications. They can be used to carry equipment, tools, whole trees, and logs. Also, while a lot of items used in the forestry industry are heavy-duty, flatbeds come in different configurations which make it easy to hauls this equipment efficiently. In addition, they have aids that make it easy to secure freight during transportation.
