For business owners in Preston, curtainsider trucks, or tautliner trucks, are very useful for palletised freight and transportation of large loads. These are put on to the flat bed of the truck using a forklift. Apart from such loads, the curtainsider is ideal for the transport of large bags of materials and other bulky items. However, you’ll need to securely fasten these to avoid movement during transportation. The load is usually placed from the side of the curtainsider. However, it’s also possible to load them from the top if the load comprises loose weight such as wood-chips. Securely fastened canvas curtains protect the sides of the vehicle. The use of tight buckles lock them in place via a hook arrangement attached to a rail, both above and below.
Curtainsider trucks in Preston may also come with a short mezzanine floor in the middle. This is useful when you need to carry separate types of load. It also helps to stack loads more neatly and in a more organised way. The truck may have rear doors or it may have a container door. Ensure that the vehicle is in good condition and has a clean history. For more details about our available curtainsider trucks, contact Malcolm Taylor Used Trucks.
