Available Stake Truck Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Stake Trucks listed for rent in Detroit, MI include:

Flat Bed Body

Flatbed trucks with the flat bed body design are some of the most common. They come in different sizes and are used for hauling heavy machinery, equipment, and oversized pipes, just to mention a few. Since they are open with no roof or sides, they can be used to load freight from any side of the truck. Also, the floor of the truck could be made of either wooden or metallic planks.

Stake Bed Body

Unlike flat bed bodies that have no sides, stake bed bodies have removable stakes which act as the sides of the truck. These stakes are mostly made of metallic bars and are fitted in sockets located on the edges. They function as support for the goods in transit.

Step Deck

Step decks are designed with two decks that form the platform of the truck. They have a short deck that is usually 11ft. This deck drops to form a larger deck that has a maximum length of 37ft. They are designed like that in order to haul goods that are tall and might not fit under low overpasses.

Logging Body

Another type of flatbed truck is the logging body design which is specially made for hauling logs. They are usually customized with high sides that ensure that cargo stays in place and safeguards the safety of the operator. Since they are used for heavy hauling which might sometimes entail offroad trucking, logging body trucks have superb suspension.
