The trucking industry offers multiple types of services. Two of those include lowboy trucking and step deck trucking. Because there are a few similarities, some people get the two confused, making it hard to choose the right service. However, there are also differences. Three, in particular, that stand out.
Before going over these three differences, it would help to gain a basic understanding of these two types of trailers. With lowboy trucking services, a gooseneck detaches thanks to large hydraulic cylinders that raise and lower the trailer. For shoring up the neck to the truck, a smaller cylinder gets used. With that done, a large piece of equipment drives over the front, going onto the trailer’s deck in preparation for transporting cargo.
As for step deck trucking, also referred to as single drop, drop deck, and open deck, heavy equipment hauling companies and others use these trailers to transport much of the same kind of freight as that of a flatbed. For both options, a trucking company can haul a significant amount of large and heavy cargo. Along with these differences, consider the three mentioned below.

Greg Grimes got it done. I had an unusual shipment that he took on seriously and professionally. Greg was very responsive and communicative, worked many different angles to get me a good price, and overcame several logistical challenges. I would definitely use MGA again.
We have made several trips to Toronto for the 2013 PGA Championship and over the course of those trips we have gotten to know the principles of this organization well. They are headquartered in Toronto and are great people. If you need to reach out to them, ask for Greg or Brad Grimes and let them know you heard of them through this note and they will take good care of you.
Can count on MGA for all my shipping requirements. Fantastic personnel and service.
