I'm in need of a automatic semi-truck for a week this month preferably International or Freightliner if you have a 48+ ft flatbed trailer also that would be even better. So if you have one sitting up and are willing to rent it out or No someone who is please let me know 404-492-0288

Seriously Elijah, who do you think rents out a truck and trailer for a week to some stranger on the Internet? Do you realize the revenue a big rig with a flatbed trailer produces in a week, or the liability involved in turning it over to someone else? There's no way you're gonna find something like this without paying an excessive amount of money.

How about starting out with telling us why you need to rent a truck and flatbed trailer? Because if you just need to move something you can hire a trucking company. If you're wanting it to try and get your class A license, then we can help explain a much better way to go about that.

So, what's the deal?

Just for clarification... the revenues I produce in a week would be more than most people pay for a 160 truck driver training course. It's far cheaper to go to school for a CDL , and if you do it right you can attend a Paid CDL Training Program, which would actually be free.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Depending where you are located there are places that rent and lease truck and trailers on a weekly and monthly basis. This is not the type of site to find one though. There is a place down the road from me that does just that, but mostly tankers and grain trailers seasonally for farm country. But this time of year they would be more likely to rent one for a week or 2.
