Decking & Undecking Services

When it comes to efficiently transporting heavy freight, the concept of “Truck Decking” plays a vital role, and Central Iowa Towing is at the forefront of providing specialized Decking & Undecking Services. This unique method involves loading one truck onto the back of another, optimizing the use of available resources and streamlining the transportation process. Whether you’ve seen trucks carrying multiple trailers on the highway or you’re looking for a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly freight transportation solution, truck decking might just be the answer you’re seeking.

The Precision of Truck Decking

The process of truck decking isn’t just about stacking trucks onto one another haphazardly. It’s a meticulously planned and executed operation that requires skill and precision. It begins with loading a power unit – the leading truck – with one or more trailing trucks securely attached to it. This connection is established using a fifth wheel or saddle connection, ensuring stability and safe transportation.

The loading phase, known as “decking,” is where the trailing trucks are strategically positioned to achieve optimal weight distribution. This not only ensures the safety of the cargo during transit but also contributes to the overall stability of the convoy. Once loaded, the decked trucks are secured to prevent any movement while on the road.

At the destination or designated transfer point, the process is reversed, referred to as “de-decking.” The trailing trucks are carefully and safely unloaded from the power unit, allowing them to continue their journey independently or serve for specific local deliveries.

Three Truck Decking: Optimizing Resources

One specialized form of truck decking is the “Three Truck Decking” method. This involves stacking three trucks securely onto each other – a base unit and two additional trucks above it. This method ensures that the available resources are optimally utilized, reducing the need for additional trips and enhancing overall efficiency.

Central Iowa Towing is a recognized expert in providing dependable three truck decking services. With their experienced team and top-tier equipment, they ensure even weight distribution and secure fastening, guaranteeing a safe and efficient journey for heavy cargo. This method not only cuts down on transportation costs but also reduces the environmental impact, making it a responsible choice for freight transportation.

Advantages of Truck Decking

Truck decking offers several compelling advantages that make it a preferred choice for transporting heavy freight:

Resource Optimization: By stacking trucks, truck decking maximizes the capacity of the power unit, reducing the need for multiple trips.

Cost-Effectiveness: The ability to transport multiple trucks in a single trip significantly lowers transportation costs per unit of freight.

Reduced Environmental Impact: Fewer trips mean reduced greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller overall environmental footprint.

Time-Saving: Truck decking slashes transportation time, as multiple trucks can be delivered to various destinations in one go.

“My partner slid off of an exit ramp near Story City. Patrick was out there in 20 minutes and got the car out quickly and expertly out of a drainage ditch. He even followed us up to the local gas station to make sure that the car still drove without any problems. I’m incredibly satisfied with the service — fair price, kind people, and expert service!”
