Platform or Flat Trailers are the backbone of the general haulage industry. Regularly used for the road transport and storage of steel, pre-fabricated concrete and timber building sections. Generally 13.6m (45 feet) long and 1.5m (5 feet) high. Suitable for crane loading, side loading with fork lifts or rear loading from a loading bay. When fitted with twist locks (then known as PSK’s or Platform Skeletal trailer) they can be used for the carriage of sea containers. When fitted with posts and sockets suitable for steel bars, pipes, poles and other circular material.

We have well over two hundred Platform or Flat Trailers for sale or rent at our Bawtry yard manufactured by Dennison, SDC and Montracon.

When twistlocks are fitted to a flat / platform trailer it is then known as a PSK and has the option to carry containers as well as standard HGV loads.
