Lowboy Trucking Services

On a standard semitrailer, freight taller than 8 feet exceeds most height restrictions. If you're transporting a tall shipment, height can complicate finding a route without relevant overhead obstacles and size guidelines. These considerations are important when arranging transport services for heavy machinery. Lowboy flatbed trailer shipping solves the problem of stacking tall equipment on a standard flatbed trailer. 

Lowboy Trucking

A lowboy flatbed is a semitrailer with a low bed, called a dropdeck. A single lowboy trailer has two drops that let the trailer sit close to the ground. One drop is just behind the gooseneck, and the other is in front of the wheels. Two-axle lowboy flatbed trailers have a maximum weight of 40,000 pounds and are rated for freight that measures 14 feet tall or less. These qualities make lowboy shipping ideal for moving oversized equipment.
