Loading a Food Truck on a Flatbed Ready for Transport
Park the food truck being towed and the flatbed in line with one another on a levelled surface. Park the towing tractor with the parking brake set, and the trailer’s wheels choked. Drop the ramps and align them with the food truck’s wheels. If the truck has an engine, drive it slowly through the ramps and onto the trailer bed. Make sure you are working with an experienced spotter to guide your movement.
Move the trailer forward until it’s load distribution is perfect for hauling. Heavy Haulers transport experts are highly trained and experienced; they have in-depth knowledge about load distribution and balancing for a smooth shipping and transportation process. If the food truck is two-wheeled and without an engine, use a trailer with a central rail system and a winch to safely load it on the trailer. For large food trucks without an engine, a towing truck is used to pull the food truck up the ramps and onto the flatbed. Depending with the size and weight of a food truck, a trailer can be loaded with more than one truck. Having said that, proper securing of the food truck is crucial to smooth shipping and delivery of the food truck. The ratchets need to be tied down, the wheels strapped, the security chain fastened to the frame, and the body well secured. Luckily, our experts at Heavy Haulers understands the safety measures and the securement process of different food truck designs. With our experts, your food truck will be securely tied down and safely transported to the desired location.
