What is a flatbed?
The flatbed van is a niche conversion that comes in two styles. The first is exactly as described - a large, flat panel made with an aluminium frame and hardwood floor that's designed to take a large, heavy item that doesn't move or need to be protected from the elements. The other type is designed to cater for breakdown services or plant hire companies. These are a special order product, and add a flat area behind a single cab with a ramp section designed to make it easy to drive other vehicles on to it for long-distance transportation (i.e recovery trucks).
Flatbeds are often used for carrying oversized loads or products with unusual shapes. Even if your business doesn't require you to move what might be considered generic hauling materials like crates or steel, flatbeds are essential in the world of towing, agriculture or dumping. The use of flatbeds extends across industries, whether you are in transportation, construction, or general manufacturing, these trucks are vital to any fleet operation. When deciding if a flatbed would benefit your haul consider load size, weight, and the need for loading aids and unloading/dumping aids.
