Flatbed Trucking Services You Can Rely On

Flatbed trucking is an oversize and overweight load transportation method. When hauling your load, you may use standard trucking services that pull a container or a flatbed setup. Generally, flatbeds ship oversized loads that can’t be enclosed in a container or trailer. Most flatbeds are made of strong wooden or aluminum frames and floors with flat decks as the most popular, but there are also drop decks. While flatbeds are not enclosed, you can get side rack kits, usually fixed with canvas tarps. To get the best-flatbed trucking services, you need our professionals at Wide Load Shipping, who are well-equipped and experienced to help you.

Flatbed Trucking Services Across the Country

Our experts deal with various trailer types when it comes to trucking. Flatbed, for instance, requires exceptional skills to avoid losses, damages, and accidents. But we have an experienced team with all the vital skills to ensure your cargo is safely delivered. Some common skills required for flatbed trucking include,

  • Loading
  • Tarping
  • Load securement


We may use cranes, forklifts, and other approved and appropriate methods when loading, depending on the type of freight. While this may look or sound easy, you will need our experts to ensure the cargo is well-balanced and set in compliance with federal and state law. The load securements must also use the tie-down types required by the authorities. A general rule for all flatbed trucking service providers is to ensure your shipment is thoroughly secured to avoid trouble with the Department of Transportation. When tarping, all covers used must be well secured. Wide Load Shipping experts understand these requirements and will use appropriate tarp systems and canvas kits. Proper tarping prevents the cover from falling off and landing on other motorists, which can cause accidents.

As we provide these services, we know the complexity of this method requires expertise. So we ensure you get a qualified oversize or overweight load specialist to handle the process and ensure your cargo is safely delivered. The specialist assigned to your shipment will guide you through every step, including helping you acquire all the necessary flatbed trucking permits. Also, with our logistic experts, if you need a pilot car assigned to your shipment, they will ensure you get the most suitable one. Generally, Wide Load Shipping flatbed services and workforce are spread countrywide, serving various clients and guaranteeing fast delivery of your goods. Nothing is too heavy to handle or move with our flatbed trailers.
