When cargo or equipment is too tall for a standard flatbed, don't worry. Heavy Haulers is proud to have a wide variety of step deck/drop deck trailers (WITH and without RAMPS) to use for these non-standard jobs. A step deck trailer (also known as a drop deck trailer) is similar to a conventional flatbed trailer with a drop in the deck down to the axle height. This gives it an extra boost in the height that it can securely transport.


Drop deck trailers can have one step, where the deck drops and stays flat until the end of the trailer, or a double drop, where the deck drops below the axle height and steps back up over the axles at the end of the trailer. Double drops are typically only used when cargo is between 10 feet and 11.5 feet tall, however. This is because while conventional flatbeds and drop decks are graded to carry 48,000 lbs, while conventional double drops are graded to carry 45,000 lbs to keep the load stable in cases of extreme height.

Step Deck Trucking Regulations

Every step deck trucking company has to comply with federal regulations. The regulations that Heavy Haulers must meet when transporting loads on step deck trucks include height, weight, width, and securement regulations. Step deck trucking is very similar to standard flatbed trucking. Therefore, step deck trucks must follow the same regulations regarding securement. These regulations state the type of tie-downs used to secure cargo, the placement of tie-downs, and how many tie-downs are used. Regulations relating to tie-downs depend on the size and weight of your shipment.


Federal laws also dictate that oversize loads up to 11.5 ft tall can be hauled legally on a step deck truck. Additionally, the width of your load must be 8.5 ft or under and can weigh up to 48,000 lbs. Regulations can differ from state to state, which can be complicated to get to grips with. The Heavy Haulers step deck trucking team understands the specific regulations and requirements for transporting on a step deck truck. Call for a step deck trailer transport quote! (800) 908-6206
