Available Flatbed Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Trailer rentals in Indianapolis


These trailers, also known as double drops, are usually extremely low with two drops, one located after the gooseneck and the other in front of the rear axle. Their increased number of axles increases their load capacity and strength. The drop forms some sort of a well that enables it to carry loads with heights of up to 14 feet. Also, this feature gives the load stability when compared to standard flatbed trailers. Most heavy machinery and equipment used in construction exceed the standard legal weight and height of flatbed trailers but can be easily loaded and transported on low-boy trailers.

Removable Goosenecks

They are called removable because they can be detached from the cabin. This trailer is mostly used to haul oversized loads. RGNs can also be lowered to the ground to create a ramp that makes it easy to load and unload freight. These trailers can be configured with 20+ axles which increases their strength, capacity, and support system making it possible to haul freight of approximately 150,000 pounds. RGNs come in lengths of up to 29 feet making them the perfect trailers for carrying large machines and since no additional loading equipment is required, they are quite convenient.

Extendable Stretch Trailer

The extendable stretch trailers are perfect for self-support loads. The name is derived from the trailer’s nature of retracting or stretching. They are best suited for extremely long loads as they help to prevent the cargo in transit from overhanging. The extendable trailer has a maximum length of 80feet. In addition, they are lightweight with great steering angles giving your load optimum flexibility, and can haul multiple (stable) loads simultaneously.
