Available Flatbed Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Trailer rentals in Pelham

Drop Deck

These trailers have no roof, sides, or doors, but instead of having one level to their flatbed, they have two. The upper deck is the standard height that attaches to the tractor pulling the cargo, and then it drops down to a lower deck, This allows for larger and taller cargo to be stored on the back while still being low without posing any risks.


Standard Flatbed Trailer

These are the most common types of flatbed trailers. While most of the other variations are adjustable to meet the needs of different cargo types, these are pretty basic. They consist of a single flat deck that is level all through. However, they are used for different heavy and tall freight purposes within Pelham.


Flatbed Stretch Trailer 

A flatbed stretch trailer has an extendable and retractable bed. These trailers typically start at around 48 ft. long and can be extended up to 80 ft. long at their maximum length. It creates space to accommodate unusually long cargo such as industrial piping or pre-built parts of roads or bridges.
