Flatbed Truck Rental in Pelham, AL

Flatbed trucks have a flat top for hauling cargo. The lack of side walls or roofs is to ensure that large cargo can be hauled without the limitation of an enclosure. That is why flatbed trucks are very common in fields such as construction where the equipment used is large. If you are looking for a large 48ft flatbed truck for all your heavy freight, then rent with COOP!

Available Flatbed Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Truck rentals in Pelham

Flatbed Body

The flatbed body truck is the base variation of flatbed truck rentals. This variation comes with a flat and level bed that has no sides or covering for the cargo, and it is made out of either a metallic or wooden floor base. These variations may be later converted into another flatbed truck variation.

Step Deck Flatbed Truck

A step-deck flatbed truck has two heights to its flatbed cargo area. The first height is the standard height that connects the cargo area to the front of the truck. The second height ‘drops’ down from the standard height to a lower height that can accommodate taller cargo while still being below the clearance level for bridges and tunnels. Because of this ‘drop’, the step-deck flatbed truck is also known as a drop-deck truck.

Stake Bed Body

Stake bed body trucks are flatbed trucks that have upright bars, or stakes, surrounding the perimeter of the traditional flatbed truck. These stakes are removable, which means that they can be taken off for easier loading and unloading. These stakes are still flexible in comparison to an enclosed truck, and they normally won’t have a roof to allow for taller cargo, but they do help keep cargo contained for easier securing of the cargo.

Flatbed Truck Uses

The truck rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for Flatbed Trucks rented on COOP.


Construction companies love the versatility that flatbed truck options offer them. Their durable and spacious cargo beds allow for flexible cover options for their loaded cargo. This allows construction companies to complete a good portion of their work with increased efficiency using flatbeds, compared to other vehicles they would otherwise use.


Landscapers love flatbed trucks, particularly the variation with stakes. The lack of roof allows for landscaping teams to quickly load shrub and debris into the bed of the truck from all sides, and move along to their next site. The flatbed truck is also a popular choice for hauling their heavy machineries like lawn mowers, bulldozers, or excavators to and from their job sites.

Heavy-Duty Hauling

Because of the ability to have cargo transported with no sides or roof on the bed, flatbed trucks, particularly the step-down variations, are extremely popular for transporting heavy-duty, wide-load cargo that otherwise wouldn't fit into a traditional truck.
