Are you looking for a rental to take care of all your heavy and long hauls? Then you could consider renting a sleeper cab tractor. What sets them apart from other tractor types is the sleeper area located behind the cab. As such, drivers can comfortably drive for long hours since all basic amenities are in the cab. To rent such a sleeper tractor for your business operations join COOP today.
Single Axle Sleeper Tractor
A single axle sleeper tractor is a tractor with a sleeper compartment that has an extra wheel in its fifth axle. The single axle sleeper tractor is a smaller sized tractor than a tandem axle sleeper tractor and may be easier to maneuver than its counterpart as well.
Tandem Axle Sleeper Tractor
The tandem-axle sleeper tractor is often larger than the single-axle sleeper tractor due to it having an extra rear axle right next to the original rear axle. These tractors are often equipped for heavier loads because of the extra stability that the second rear axle adds. Also, the driver can manipulate how they want to distribute the weight between the axles using a switch.
Mack is a company that creates many products, but they are most trusted for creating vehicles that can be relied upon for handling heavy-duty jobs. It is a trustworthy manufacturer with tractors that have light frames to increase fuel efficiency. They also have comfortable cabs with premium seating to keep truckers rested such as the Mack CX613.
Volvo has been known for its innovative nature, most recently focusing its attention on electric-powered commercial vehicles. Having both single-axle and tandem-axle options available in their product line, this versatile manufacturer is ready to meet your sleeper cab rental needs. They have great, cozy, and comfortable sleeper trucks, like the Volvo VNL which are recognized worldwide.
Peterbilt is one of the most popular brands of sleeper tractors rented with COOP. This is in part due to their well-known reputation for having comfortable and spacious sleeper cabins and high-technology features. These Peterbilt sleeper trucks, such as the Peterbilt 579, have very efficient engines that maximize the miles traveled per gallon with their 12-speed transmission.
Over-The-Road Long Distance Hauling
Over-the-road long-distance hauling can take up to 3-4 weeks for completion of one trip due to the long, coast-to-coast distances it typically involves. Because of how long these trips are, it would not be economical, or comfortable, to have to find new motels to sleep at every night. The sleeper cabin in the sleeper tractor provides a convenient place to sleep during such long trips.
Heavy-Duty Freight Transportation
Because long trips can be costly, the businesses that schedule them try to consolidate as much freight as possible into each long trip they do. The maximization of cargo space means that the drivers of these trips are often hauling very heavy-duty cargo loads. The sleeper tractor, particularly the tandem-axle sleeper tractor provides stability from the extra rear axle for all heavy hauls.
Wholesalers and other warehouse and distribution centers may sometimes need to freight cargo for long distances while keeping their costs down. The sleeper tractor fills this purpose by providing a versatile tractor that can carry different kinds of cargo. They are also very efficient when it comes to hauling bulky cargo in a single trip.
