Available Flatbed Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Trailer rentals in Columbus


Lowboys are a type of flatbed also known as double drops due to the well-like shape formed between the two axles. One drop is located after the gooseneck and the other in front of the rear axle(s). With an increased number of axles, lowboys have more capacity and strength for heavy hauls. The drop formed by lowboys gives it the ability to carry tall loads up to 14 feet high and also gives the load stability. Heavy machinery such as excavators, bulldozers, and other types of freight that exceed standard legal weight and height are easily loaded and transported on double drops.

Removable Goosenecks(RGN)

These types of flatbed trailers are called removable because they can be detached from the cabin. RGNs enable you to conveniently drive the load onto the trailer since they can also be detached and lowered to the ground to create a ramp. The trailers can also be configured with multiple axles which increases their capacity and support system making it possible to haul severely heavy loads. RGNs can have a length of up to 29 feet making them suitable for hauling cars and other automobiles.

Extendable Stretch Trailer

Just as in the name, extendable trailers can be stretched out and shrunk back to suit different lengths. They can be stretched up to 80 feet and are used for extra-long cargo such as windmill turbines to ensure that the load doesn’t overhang. Also, these flatbed trailers are made flexible for the purpose of driveability despite their sizes. One way to use your extendable trailer rental is to haul multiple stable loads.
