The trucking industry continues to show just how vital it is to the American economy. Nobody can buy almost anything without that item spending at least a portion of its life on the back of a truck. As an owner/operator’s needs change, they’ll require additional trailering options. Patriot Truck Sales should be at or near the top of anyone’s list who is looking for new flatbed trailers for sale near Dallas, TX. We currently have a diverse inventory of flatbed trailers from top manufacturers like MAC and Fontaine. Purchasing a new trailer is certainly a large investment for some trucking businesses and our team is eager to help people make the best and most affordable decision possible.
Customers can schedule an appointment to examine their available options by calling 855-200-3075.
What do I need to know about using a flatbed?
Owner/operators who make the jump from dry van trailers to flatbeds will have more options available to them, but there is still more that they should know.
Drivers are ultimately responsible for securing their cargo to the flatbed. This is made more difficult because there are no other permanent coverings.
The cargo will need constant attention to make sure the straps are secure. Additionally, if the load is uncovered, measures will need to be taken to protect it from the weather.
Owner/Operators that have a flatbed available can command higher freight rates because of the additional capability offered and the extra experience it takes to safely haul one.
