Double Deck Trucks For Sale

Sometimes two decks are better than one, and when it comes to trucks, a double deck trailer can make a good second-hand purchase, especially for operators in logistics. The problem with standard trailers is that while they may be capable of handling tens of tonnes of goods, actually using the available load space is an issue. And maximising the potential of the volume in the rear is only really possible when harnessing a double deck trailer. Whether you are hauling boxed goods, foodstuffs, furniture or other more compact items, having a second deck on which to stack and store them for transit will make for a much more efficient approach to haulage. And there are some important things to look out for when choosing a used double deck trailer.

Both straight and step frame trailers can feature a double deck set-up on the interior, ensuring that capacity is not compromised in either case. And assessing the specifications of the second deck in terms of its size, height and adaptability will be important. Some decks will span the entire length of the body, while others will provide a partial platform for goods without reaching from one end to the other. The former has the benefit of being able to accept a full load throughout the split level body, while the latter means that taller items can still be accommodated without having to completely eliminate the double deck set-up.

Double Deck TrailerAdjustability of the deck may be desirable, especially if a mixture of goods needs to be transported and different jobs will be taken on by the trailer over time. Some models have the ability to alter the height at which the upper deck sits in the trailer body, ensuring that a range of needs can be met on a case-by-case basis. And of course it pays to ensure that if the height and span of the deck can be altered that the necessary equipment and fixtures to achieve this quickly are included with a second-hand trailer.

The latest double deck trailers may offer users a fully powered upper deck that can be raised and lowered without requiring manual intervention. This can help to streamline loading and unloading, as well as reduce the need to combine other equipment with the truck in order to safely deliver cargo. But you should be prepared to spend more for this type of functionality if you require it, as well as accept the additional maintenance costs that may ultimately be involved in its upkeep. If money is tight, then a permanently fixed deck may be the best alternative, especially if the types of loads will not be changing.

On the outside the same considerations as with a standard trailer should be taken into account, so buyers will need to find out whether a double deck model offers spring or air suspension or drum or disc brakes and more besides. Outriggers for stability during loading may also be present on certain models, and the state of the tyres may be a good indication as to the condition of the rest of the body.
