Horizon Transport | Flatbed Division

Haul multiple RVs on your 53' trailer
ApplyGet a Trailer
Dozens of successful Horizon Transport Independent Contractors have upgraded to multi-unit delivery vehicles. “Haul & Tow” trucks literally “haul” one unit on their deck and “tow” one unit behind. Combination, or “flatbed”, vehicles are comprised of a flatbed or step-deck trailer and a power unit, ranging from dually pick-ups all the way up to semi tractors.

The trailers are designed to move multiple units at once. The contractors in this division are typically those who have joined our fleet by way of the Drive-Away or Tow-Away division and then evolved their businesses into multi-unit deliveries. Others have come from a transportation background, having recognized the competitive profit potential.

  • 50,000 miles of towing experience
  • Clean DOT record
  • 1 ton dually or larger
