What is a flatbed?
The flatbed van looks as it sounds and comes in two styles. Choose from either a large, flat panel that protects from the elements and commonly takes heavy items which don't need to move quickly. Or the second style, which has a flat panel with a ramp designed for breakdown services or plant hire businesses. The latter is used to transport vehicles efficiently and safely and is a special order product.
Flatbeds are often used for carrying oversized loads or products with unusual shapes. Even if your business doesn't require you to move generic hauling materials like crates or steel, flatbeds are essential in the world of towing, agriculture or dumping. You can find a range of flatbed and tipper vans available for business contract hire and lease in our catalogue of commercial dropside and tipper vans. 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.
