When it comes to heavy loads, transportation is always a challenge. You need a vehicle that won’t buckle down to extreme weight and won’t break down in the middle of the job. For all the strength you need, it sure sounds like you need some superhero to get the job done.
And yet, one name has risen to the challenge. Over the years, one truck has commanded most everyone’s attention more than any other vehicle: a flatbed.
Name You can Trust
Flatbed trucks do not carry any soft mattresses or any sleeping pillows to accommodate any drowsy passenger. On the contrary, these are sturdy vehicles meant to transport the heaviest of loads.
Its name refers to the entirely flat ‘bed’ body that does not come with any roofing whatsoever. This seemingly simplistic design makes it easy for quick and easy loading of goods and equipment.
However, without cover from the elements, these trucks may not be best for food or any perishable goods being vulnerable to precipitation. But other than that, flatbed carriers carry enough muscle to transport super-weighty materials. Concrete example: heavy equipment.
Most Dynamic Carrier
When it comes to it and the job is extremely difficult, flatbeds can carry load of up to 45,000 pounds. But don’t fret, as some have been reported to carry heavy haul as much as 100,000 pounds.
Added to this, flatbed trucks are best for unconventional shipments, which may be over the usual dimensions, be it length, height or even width. Of course, getting necessary legal permit for such should be undertaken. This should also include permits for hazardous materials.
When the job is intricate in nature and timing requirements on deliveries need to be observed to the letter, flatbed, more often than not, is the go-to vehicle. It’s dependable and largely reliable.
