For most businesses in the logistics and construction industries, demand isn’t a steady thing. Projects ebb and flow. Supply and demand ramps up or down depending on the season.
Whether you’re transporting heavy-duty mining equipment, moving materials to site, delivering large stacks of pallets, or moving your equipment into place, a flatbed trailer is the perfect solution.
But, noted above, the demand isn’t always constant. So if you’re only using them sporadically, it’s not always viable to invest in one yourself.
In these situations, flatbed trailer rental is the ideal solution—and Rentco has you covered with a range of flatbed trailers available for hire.
The benefits of flatbed trailers
Flatbed trailers are sturdy workhorses, designed to support your team in moving, shifting, and delivering. There are four big benefits to integrating flatbed trailers into your fleet.
They’re extremely versatile
Flatbed trailers can be used to transport goods and equipment all over the country, and can take a wide variety of cargo. From shipping containers and pallets of materials, to heavy equipment like dozers, diggers, and other trucks, and even oversized equipment like cable spools, demountable buildings, and large-scale construction materials. Their versatility makes them useful in almost any transport situation.
As well as any transport situation, flatbed trailers are useful in most industries where movement of goods and equipment is required. Not just mining and construction, but logistics, agriculture, and even the automotive and aviation industries.
Need more space? Extendable flatbed trailers provide extra length to maximise your available transport capabilities.
Flatbed trailers are extremely strong pieces of equipment, built to take significant weight. You can load them up safely with as much as you need (cargo limits depending), and you know that your equipment will arrive where it needs to get to, safe and sound.
With their specific design, they’re able to accommodate oversized loads safely. Six wheels on strong axles provide reliability on the road, and reduce the risk of unbalanced cargo.
Easy to access and usage
Flatbed trailers feature an open design that allows for easy access from all sides, whether by crane or hand. Without walls or a roof, you can shift goods on and off from the side with a swing lifter, or drive vehicles directly on from the back.
Why flatbed trailer hire?
When it comes to short-term business needs, flatbed trailer hire makes more sense than investing in a completely new asset.
Rather than making a long-term investment, and spending substantial capital upfront, you only pay for the use that you need—and you’re not stuck with your capital tied up in a depreciating asset.
It’s a far more flexible option, as you don’t need to store or maintain your trailer in its off-time, and if your requirements increase you can simply hire more trailers as your needs dictate.
Getting the right flatbed trailer is important
Choosing the right flatbed trailer for your requirements isn’t just better for your transport capabilities. It also helps ensure the safety of your drivers, your teams, and other road users.
