Dropside's & Flatbeds

Dropsides & Flatbeds are particularly useful for builders and anyone else that needs to transport a dirty or bulky load because they offer a generous payload and great practicality.

The most significant advantage of drop sides is loading and unloading becomes as straightforward as they can be. Loading can take place by hand or with loading equipment, such as forklift trucks or a crane.

If you dont require the dropside boards and just need a straight forward Flat body, they can be removed very easily with a spanner and some elbow grease.

Without a lifting mechanism, the vehicle is lighter, allowing for heavier payloads.
