Flat Trucks for Sale (251)

The flat bed truck or simply ‘flat truck’ is a truly flexible workhorse.  With a minimalist body, there is not much to bend or break and there are no loading restrictions like side rails, posts or curtains to get in the way.  Also known as platform trucks, the major downside to a flatbed lorry is that the loads are exposed to the British weather as well as the time it takes to cover the load with sheets. Every general haulage company will have at least one flatbed truck on their fleet – usually at different weight ranges.  A 7.5 tonne flatbed is just the job for running local errands, as the journeys are shorter and the weather more predictable.  Eighteen tonne flatbed trucks – or indeed even triaxle flatbed semi-trailers are great for longer distance work, but the driver will need to be fully up to speed with how to safely rope and sheet a load.

Buying a Used Flatbed Truck

There is always a great choice of used flatbed trucks for sale on Truckpages.  There is less to go wrong with a flat truck, as there is a lot less bodywork to damage, so inspecting a used example on sale at your local dealer should be less of a challenge.  The buyer can focus all efforts on checking over the driveline and cab, tyres etc. rather than inspecting the bodywork in more detail.

Low Cab Mercedes Econics for Builder’s Merchant

Gold Fish Transport saw a clear solution to the need for optimum visibility when working in the capital, in the shape of the Mercedes-Benz Econic. The construction materials distributor runs a fleet of 30 trucks from its base in Brentwood, Essex. Its first two Mercedes-Benz vehicles have just arrived via Dealer Motus Truck & Van. Both Econics – one is a 26-tonner, the other has an 18-tonne gross weight – they were purchased primarily for their safety credentials. With its deep, panoramic windscreen and the fully glazed, folding passenger door specified by Gold Fish Transport, the low-entry model affords drivers…

Mercedes Actros for Ice Cool Company

Even if a truck only works within a 10 mile radius of its base, it has to be reliable and safe.  To buy their first truck for local operation, Wessington Cryogenics chose a Mercedes Actros. The 18-tonne Actros was supplied by local Dealer Bell Truck and Van and boasts the manufacturer’s new MirrorCam system. The vehicle has a Classic Space S day cab and, as an 1824 variant, employs a 7.7-litre in-line six-cylinder engine that produces 175 kW (238 hp); this is paired with an eight-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated manual transmission.
