Step Deck ShippingStep deck shipping with ShipLux means a lower the deck, not lower expectations.
Tall equipment is never too tall of an order… With step deck shipping with ShipLux!
A step deck trailer is a platform with no sides or roof. Cargo is loaded much like a standard flatbed trailer. The difference is that step deck trailers offer greater cargo diversity and smoother loading than flatbeds, as the platform is lower to the ground than a traditional flatbed. Step deck trailers may be either single or double drop. Double drop trailers allow the majority of the deck to sit below the level of the axles. A second step up over the rear axles grants additional height for cargo but reduces the total tonnage the trailer can accommodate. This safeguard is to guarantee the freight remains stable throughout the transport. Double drop step deck trailers are typically used for cargo between 10 and 11.5 feet tall and weighing up to 45,000 pounds. Single-step trailers can accommodate loads up to 48,000 pounds. Step deck trailers may be loaded with forklifts, and many offer additional versatility with a hydraulically-powered gooseneck. RGN trailers can allow oversize construction equipment to be driven onto the trailer at loading, reducing or removing the need for cranes for the loading and unloading processes.

The ShipLux Experience
Trailer Types: Open vs Enclosed Shipping
Open shipping is easier to schedule and more economical than enclosed, making it the perfect choice for shipping a daily driver. We have a wide variety of open-style trailers to suit your shipping needs. While you may need to give your vehicle a wash after delivery, our meticulous attention to detail means that any open vehicle transportation is handled with Premium Service from start to finish.
Enclosed trailers ensure the ultimate protection from the elements. With many trailer styles to choose from, we offer enclosed shipping for a wide range of vehicle shipments. Every enclosed vehicle shipment comes with the White Glove Treatment, meaning your vehicle will arrive in exactly the same condition it left.
