Crestline uses six different types of trailers to ship vehicles: gooseneck trailer, wedge trailer, drop deck trailer, enclosed car trailer, and open car trailer.
Flatbed trailers have an open truck bed with no sides and can carry between 1 and 4 cars.
Gooseneck trailers generally have an open truck bed, and are typically loaded from the back ramp. They attach to a truck via a “gooseneck hitch” and can hold between 1 and 4 cars. Preferred trailer type for larger cars, vans and commercial equipment.
Wedge trailers typically hold 3-4 cars at a time, carried on the top layer of the “wedge.”
For taller loads like tractors or other equipment, we use drop deck trailers. The floor drops down after it clears the truck unit at the front, for easy loading and unloading.
Enclosed car trailers are perfect for convertible, exotic and classic car shipping. They protect vehicles from the elements and typically can hold between 1 and 8 vehicles at one time.
Open Car trailers are the workhorses of our industry. They can haul many cars at one time, offering efficiency and cost savings for our customers. These are ideal for car dealerships or manufacturers.
