Beavertail bodies are ideal for end users transporting significant loads which are capable of dealing with the exposure to the weather elements and that require a sloped rear with ramps for loading equipment and instruments. This type of trailer not only offers easier loading than alternative bodies but is also furnished to endure all environments and can be designed using lightweight aluminium frames to boost payload or more enduring hardwood floors in keeping with the client’s requirements and supply a safe working environment.
Beavertail trucks are named for their distinctive tail ramps – like a beavers tail, these are wide, flat, and low to the ground, serving as a ramp for vehicles or machinery to roll from ground level up and on to the back of the truck.
If you need a beavertail vehicle, we operate 6 x 2 Rigid, Beavertail lorries for the transportation of smaller items of plant equipment up to 14 tonnes. For many small vehicles and wheeled equipment, they are the easiest method of loading it on to larger transport for relocation over long distances or at higher speeds, while they are also easier to unload once you reach your destination, so work or refuelling can begin without delay.
For maximum flexibility and adaptability, we can also supply a 30-foot rigid front-mounted crane with a beavertail body, suitable for a maximum carrying capacity of 12 tonnes, but with the benefit of the crane to assist in lifting items on and off of the truck, and therefore making loading and unloading easier in some instances.

Please except my thanks for a hassle free job, we would be very happy you use you again and recommend you to others.
Please send my thanks on to your delivery driver and escort for their help although I did make 4 cups of coffee something I don’t usually do!
I just wanted to email to express my gratitude for the fantastic service that you have provided us over the last couple of months, moving our loads from Ince to Sheffield. This has proven to be a smooth operation and your involvement has certainly enhanced the service, so again thank you. Alan and Andy you have both been so accommodating and you have both provided a great service.
