Flatbed Trucking Services
Do you need to transport goods that won’t fit into a regular trailer? You’ve come to the right place. Flatbed trucking is a great solution for very large, heavy, or unconventionally shaped items. Here’s why.
Moving goods via flatbed freight involves a flat, level trailer with no sides or overhead cover. The simple shape allows for the transport of goods that can’t be contained in a regular trailer due to some combination of their size, weight, and dimensions.
Benefits of Flatbed Freight Shipping
Flatbed trucking is ideal for moving items that:
- Require special handling, loading, and/or unloading procedures
- Need to be loaded onto the trailer from the side
- Require two lift trucks or even cranes for loading and unloading
A few common examples include pallet racking beams and shelving, specially crafted steel beams, extruded beams, extruded wiring, and other large specialty items.
We’ve been successfully moving flatbed loads for nearly 20 years.
At Bridgetown Trucking, we’re experts when it comes to safely loading, transporting, and unloading even the heaviest and most difficult to move items. We use only the best quality trucks and equipment to handle and move your goods and materials.
In addition to proper equipment, safely transporting large and heavy goods requires an experienced driver who knows how to navigate highways, backroads, and city streets with an oversized load in tow. That’s why we hire only the best and most highly skilled drivers in both our Northwest and Midwest locations.
Our employees care about getting the job done right, and they’re always willing to go the extra mile to meet and exceed your expectations.

We provide customized quotes for flatbed trucking services on a per-job basis. Because we’re often transporting oversized and heavy items, these shipments require more knowledge of the origination and destination surroundings than most other trucking services, so costs can vary.
Whatever goods you need to move, we’ll work with you to get them safely to their final destination on time. Are you ready to find out how Bridgetown Trucking can help you?
