Straight Truck Rental in Boston, MA

A straight truck is one of the most common trucks you’ll see on the road. The straight truck is different from other semi-truck type vehicles in that the rectangular box on the back of its body is typically attached to the truck and usually can’t be removed. Due to this, this truck tends to be a little smaller than a semi-truck and can be more comfortable for a less experienced driver to drive. Some straight trucks may also be under the weight limit for requiring a class A CDL. If you’re looking for a straight truck rental in Boston, Massachusetts, then look no further than the convenient truck-sharing platform, COOP.

Light-Duty Straight Truck

With an average cargo load capacity of between 8,500 lbs. to 14,500 lbs., light-duty straight trucks are a great option for transporting your cargo.

Medium-Duty Straight Truck

If you need something a little larger than the light-duty straight truck variation, consider a medium-duty straight truck. These trucks have the capacity to load between 15,000 lbs. to 33,000 lbs. of cargo. Due to their size, this variation of straight trucks typically comes loaded with a diesel engine which helps this truck still get a high fuel efficiency, and they are still easier to drive than a semi-truck with a trailer.

Cabover Straight Truck

A cab-over box truck is a truck that situates its driver’s cabin over the truck’s engine, giving this variation of box trucks a flat front of the truck. This makes the truck easier to maneuver and increases the visibility of the driver because they sit closer to the front of the truck. This style of truck can be found in light-duty or medium-duty variations of box trucks.
