Flatbed truck shipping is a popular and in-demand service. However, compared to other shipping options, flatbed transportation is unique. Using this method of shipping is beneficial in a number of ways beyond being cost-efficient and convenient.
Flatbed trucks have no walls or roof, leaving only a flat surface on which cargo is loaded and hauled. Because of the unique trailer design, typically flatbeds are the preferred method of moving large and heavy loads. For virtually any type of freight that does not fit in a closed trailer, flatbed truck shipping is the perfect solution.
While flatbed truck shipping offers many benefits, there is some potential risk. To prevent something from going wrong, you want to hire a reputable company, one that has years of experience specific to flatbed hauling but also a company with exceptional drivers.
At MGA International Logistics, we offer both. For flatbed truck shipping as well as other transportation options, we have a solid history of excellence. We take every precaution, regardless of the type of freight. As part of this, we use only qualified drivers who have experience with flatbeds and understand the dangers of being on an open surface some 10 to 15 feet off the ground when securing chains and straps.
Due to exposure to the elements, at MGA International Logistics we use heavy-duty tarps to cover valuable freight, thereby preventing damage. Other components and equipment used to ensure the safe delivery of your freight include coil racks and traps.
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.
