What is flatbed? +

A flatbed is a trailer that has no walls or roof.  It is, as the name implies, “flat”.

Why would I use a flatbed? +
  • Flatbeds allow for easy loading of unusual and large products that need to be loaded from above or from the side.   
  • Flatbeds are often  used at job sites, construction sites, and other places without docks. 
  • This is where a flatbed can be your best option!  Flatbeds, due to their unique design, allow you to safely transport materials, equipment, and other cargo that would normally be difficult to load onto a conventional “dry van” trailer.  We specialize in solving unusual shipping requirements.
Do you rent flatbeds? +

Yes. We can provide flatbeds by the hour, day, or longer.  Please contact us for current rates and availability.

What is tarping? +

Some products need to be protected from the elements while being transported.  Tarping provides a tight-fitting and secure weatherproof cover for cargo.

What king of tarps do you have? +

We can provide both steel and lumber tarps.

What are flatbeds ideal for? +

For large items that are not sensitive to the sun, flatbeds with no walls or roof are ideal. Typically, they come in 48 or 53 foot sizes, however, ET Motor Freight is equipped with extendable flatbeds that can carry loads up to 100 feet and 40 tons. Is your cargo even heavier? No problem – we have perimeter deck trailers that can haul up to 150 tons! With both removable goosenecks (RGNs) and extendable ones, we can stabilize the truck to ensure safety and security of your heavy cargo. Depending on your load, ET Motor Freight will custom-tailor the perfect flatbed solution for you, making use of step decks and double decks, lowboys, beam trailers and a variety of other appropriate equipment.
