Available Flatbed Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Truck rentals in Chicago

Flatbed Body

The flatbed truck comes in variations, but the standard flatbed style is the most common variation. It has an average height and width of 8 feet, 6 inches, and can haul 48,000 pounds of freight. Due to its low back and open cargo area, the flatbed body truck carries loads that may not fit into enclosed spaces provided by other trucks.

Logging Body

Logging body flatbed trucks are specialized for hauling logs. In addition to this, they work well in hauling construction materials and heavy machinery. Due to the weight of the load these trucks carry, they often come with a middle I-beam and side posts to secure the load from tipping over the sides. Logging body flatbed trucks also have more axles than the average truck, and these extras ensure stability for the heavy load they carry.

Step Decks

With a height often between 48 ft and 53 ft, step decks have a capacity of up to 48,000 lb. These trucks are mostly used for the transportation of heavy items that otherwise cannot be hauled by standard flatbed trucks. If you are in Chicago and want to rent a step-deck flatbed truck, you can easily find a list of available options with COOP by simply joining the platform.

Stake Bed Body

A stake bed body flatbed truck is a variation of the flatbed truck with metallic bars around its cargo area. Instead of having all sides open like the typical flatbed truck, these trucks have these sockets built around them to keep the cargo in. Due to its style, the stake bed carries loads that need to be secured during transport. You can loop chains over the sockets to keep the cargo in for additional security.
