At Coral Truck Equipment, we know how important it is for companies to have the right type of truck bodies for their Toronto fleet. While there are a wide range of different truck bodies available on the market, our highly skilled team can also customize the perfect truck body to meet your specifications. Here are the most popular truck body types for Toronto fleets.
Getting to Know the Different Types of Truck Bodies
Choosing the right type of truck body for a company’s specific needs can have a big impact on the overall performance of a job. Some of the most common types of truck bodies that companies utilize in the Toronto area include:
Flatbed trucks are constructed from a chassis that is fitted with a platform body. Products or cargo that is being transported is secured to the platform deck with ropes or sheeting in order to prevent them from sliding off during transportation. Flatbed trucks are one of the most versatile types of truck bodies as they can be used to transport a wide variety of different types of loads.
Dump truck bodies consist of an open top body that can be unloaded by tipping the body backwards by using a hydraulic arm. The tailgate can then be released in order to dump the goods. This type of truck body is best suited for transporting typical loads, such as soil, sand, and stone.
Curtain-side trucks feature flexible curtains that are fixed to roof and side frames of the truck. While curtain-side trucks provide easy access to the load for efficient loading and unloading, they also provide protection from the weather. This type of truck body is especially ideal for carrying pallet loads.
Similar to curtain-side trucks, box bodies offer protection from the weather with the added benefit of increased security. Box body trucks feature a rigid body with solid sides and often come equipped with solid rear-opening doors or roller shutters. This type of truck body is ideal for transporting loads that require security and for making deliveries in urban areas.
