Available Flatbed Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Trailer rentals in Columbia

Double Drops

Double drop flatbeds have a high deck at the front and rear of these trailers, which create a lower well in the middle to carry especially tall cargo. These specialty trailers are often required to transport especially tall machinery or equipment, as the transportation industry has regulations for maximum height because of the clearances for bridges and tunnels around the country. Usually available in lengths from 24 ft to 29.6 ft, a standard double drop trailer can carry up to 40,000 lbs.

Extendable Double Drop

When your cargo load is taller than a standard flatbed can carry but longer than a double drop can haul, the extendable double drop flatbeds may be just what you need. Extendable double drops can be extended to lengths of 29 ft to 50 ft, and have a greater maximum load than the standard versions. This makes extendable double drops able to carry especially tall and heavy equipment, machinery or industrial goods.
