Ways to Use Your Flatbed Truck Rental

Transporting Building Materials

If you are in the construction industry, there is nothing more important than a reliable truck that can handle transporting heavy building materials. Here at Fleet Flex Rental, our flatbed trucks have a high payload and are built to withstand extreme working conditions. From transporting bricks and beams to logs, lumber, and scaffolding, our trucks have what it takes to get the job done right. In addition, since the bed is flat, your material can hang over the edge allowing you to transport oddly shaped building materials with ease.

Transporting Scrap

No matter what kind of job site you are working on, odds are there is going to be a ton of scrap you need to get rid of. Our Flatbed trucks are the perfect vehicle to help you clean up the job site and transport scrap to nearby landfills and recycling centers. With our spacious flatbed trucks, you can easily load up metal, debris, and other scrap material.

Hauling Equipment

On top of hauling construction materials and scrap, our truck rentals are the perfect vehicle to help you tow heavy equipment from one location to another. The best thing about using flatbed trucks for your equipment needs is that they are designed for safety. Whether you are loading up equipment in the bed or towing trailers with heavy machinery, our flatbed truck rentals provide the assistance you need.

Landscaping

Believe it or not, flatbeds are not just used in construction industries. Many landscape jobs require land excavation and clearing out bushes and trees. However, a typical pickup truck or dump truck may not have the room to fit all of your brush. Opting to rent a flatbed truck with Flex Fleet Rental can help you transport brush, trees, landscaping tools, and other landscaping materials.

Farms

The farming industry is another industry that relies heavily on the use of flatbed trucks. As a farmer, opting to rent our trucks allows you to move equipment, supplies, cargo, and materials down rural highways and long distances without compromising your safety or your wallet. Our flatbed trucks here at Flex Fleet provide affordable hauling solutions so you can focus on your farm rather than your budget.

Delivery Services

It is no secret that the construction industry would not be able to thrive without all of those delivery companies transporting new material to every job site. If you are in the business of selling and delivering construction material, then flatbed trucks are essential to your business operations.  Flatbeds make it easy to load and unload material whether it be lumber, stone, pipes, beams, or other essential building materials.

Benefits of Using a Flatbed Truck

Now that you know all of the ways our flatbed trucks can help your industry, let’s dive into the benefits of working with one of our reliable truck models.

Easy Loading

There is nothing worse than having to try to fit all of your material or equipment into an enclosed bed, or trailer. The walls of a pickup bed and the ceiling of a trailer limit your payload and can drastically affect how you are able to transport cargo. However, a flatbed truck has no boundaries. You can easily load up material from the back or the sides with a forklift without any clearances or obstacles to get in your way.

Safely Secure Cargo

Not only is loading up material a breeze with our flatbed trucks but it is just as easy to secure your cargo. All you need is some solid straps and nets to tie down your load. However, it is important to note that tying down small debris and material may be challenging. In that case, consider renting one of our pickup truck models.

Large Load Capacity

Here at Flex Fleet, we understand that the construction business and other labor-intensive industries require transporting heavy materials and machinery that could exceed the payload of an average truck. Luckily, our flatbed truck rentals have the power and the stamina to transport your heaviest loads.
