Flat Bed Truck Hire Brisbane

Flat Bed Truck Hire Brisbane. Grace Peters can supply your flatbed truck needs across Queensland.

A flatbed truck can be used in any industry, whether it’s transportation, construction, or general manufacturing.

A flatbed truck is vital to any fleet operation.

These trucks are often used for carrying oversized loads or products that are unusually shaped.

Even if you don’t need to move what might be considered generic hauling materials like crates or steel, flatbeds still play a very important role in the world of towing, agriculture, or dumping.

How do you decide if a flatbed truck would benefit your haul considering:

-Load size.


-The need for loading aids and unloading/dumping aids?

Common Uses For Flatbed Trucks

Baled Tires

Millions of tires are stockpiled in Australia every year, creating waste and major fire hazards.

It’s also a breeding ground for insects and vermin.

Tire bales are created to help in the efforts to eliminate waste and recycle unusable tires.

A tire bale is made up of compressed vehicle tires banded together with wire that is then repurposed for construction and other projects such as:

-Erosion control.

-Road fill.

-Impact barriers.


-Retaining walls and more.

One bale consists of about 100 tires and weighs about 1 ton.

Building Materials

Building materials can consist of materials such as timber or scaffolding.

But also includes a wide variety of materials that builders need such as:



-Steel beams as well as rods.

-Materials of unusual pre-fabricated shapes.

A flatbed truck is the most common type of transportation for a load like this.

But it is also the most practical because the heavy materials can be loaded and unloaded by hand or by crane from any direction.

With the use of trusses, materials can also hang over the edge of the flatbed, some of which wouldn’t otherwise fit inside an enclosed box trailer.

Scrap Metal Removal

Construction companies and builders often hire a service to pick-up and remove scrap metal from the job site.

The drivers then take it to a scrap metal recycling facility where it is sold and recycled or purchased by another company.

The ease of loading and unloading, and sometimes the ability to dump, makes flatbed tricks ideal for this task.

Equipment Hauling

Tractors and farm equipment, and military equipment such as tanks are often transported on flatbeds.

This is a safer alternative to driving the equipment on the road to its destination.

Parts of planes or other large machinery can also be delivered on a flatbed.
