Like most driving jobs, the majority of your time will be spent behind the wheel, but flatbedding does tend to be more physically involved than other types of trucking. You will be required to pull yourself up on the trailer and loads. You will be required to secure straps and chains as well as tarping. There are distinct advantages to being a flatbedder, and the most obvious is that you get a chance every day to work outside and get a little physical activity to break up the long hours of driving. We encourage you to view our load securement page to get a better feel for what's involved. You can also get an overview of the physical job functions here.
