Box Truck Rental in Columbia, MD

The term box truck can refer to many different sizes of vehicles, which can also be called straight trucks. Containing the classic truck cab with an additional enclosed cuboid-shaped area for cargo, these vehicles typically have a straight frame that runs from the front wheels all the way to the rear. The cabs in box trucks can either be separated from the cargo area by a wall or open in other models. Some box trucks have refrigerated units to keep their contents cooled or at specific temperatures. There are many different types of box trucks available for nearly any cargo job that could be required in Columbia.

Available Box Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Box Truck rentals in Columbia

Conventional box trucks

Conventional box trucks have their engine placed in front of the cabin, giving them the appearance of having a nose. This makes conventional box trucks longer than other models, but also gives them a longer wheelbase which can make the driving experience more enjoyable, since the wheels sit just in front of the cab.

Cab Over Engine

With the engine placed directly underneath the cab of these box trucks, Cab Over Engine models have a few unique advantages. This placement gives Cab Over Engine box trucks a closer turning radius and also allows for a larger windshield and better visibility. If you deliver to busy areas that would be easier with enhanced maneuverability, a tighter turning radius and a greater field of view, Cab Over Engine box trucks may be the right choice for you.

Refrigerated Box Trucks

Available in either single zone or multiple zone temperature models, refrigerated box trucks (also called reefer trucks) have refrigerated units that allow the cargo to be kept at specific temperatures. If you deliver perishable or temperature-sensitive products, refrigerated box trucks can help you keep your cargo cold.
