Our most versatile and commonly used trailer by far is the standard flatbed trailer, made evident by the sheer number of them on the road every day. A great aspect of flatbed trailer shipping is the stability of the bed and the fact that these common carriers come in a wide variety of sizes and dimensions. A flatbed trailer, as the name suggests, is marked by a flat trailer surface that's able to be loaded with stability by balancing and securing cargo on the outside edges of the trailer.


What Is a Flatbed Trailer Used For?

Most commonly, flatbed trailers are used for freight shipping, but their versatility is what has made them the most common trailer for many shipping companies. These versatile trailers can carry almost any type of cargo.

Tractor Transport uses flatbeds for a wide variety of shipping jobs, including small to medium sized tractors, and other assorted farming equipment. We specialize in heavier equipment, but our fleet of flatbeds still represents a reliable, state-of-the-art method of dependably moving our clients' freight, smaller tractors, equipment, and other important items. Call Tractor Transport today and learn more about how we can put our most versatile trailers to work for you.
