Often referred to as single drop or drop deck trailers, step deck vehicles are actually a type of flatbed trailer that features a rising step deck located towards the front and sits above the tractor unit. Used for hauling taller shipments, that can become challenging when using other types of equipment, step deck trailers allow cargo to sit lower down, thereby avoiding height restrictions and eliminating the need to apply for additional permits.
Allowing for loads of up to 10’ high, step deck trailers can come with retractable side curtain panels that provide great protection from the elements of weather. Step deck transportation helps reduce safety risks because of the ability to make the loading and unloading process much easier. Due to the fact that these trailers are situated closer to ground level, forklift operators will have an easier time when picking-up or delivering – making it a much safer process for everyone involved.

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.
