    Anyone know where I can rent a Flatbed in Atlanta, GA. I'm looking for one not so new so the rental fee is less. I was renting a 2007 48' 102'' for $350 per month and .04 per mile.

    Check out K&L Trailer Sales and Leasing in Knoxville,TN. There is also a place in Florence,SC that leases older trailers at a good price, but their name escapes me right now, sorry. I know that you asked about Atlanta, but thought these might be helpful, and they're not TOO far away.

    Just talked to Hubby on the phone and mentioned this to him. He said that's pretty cheap, and you ought to hang onto what you've got and not give up on it because they go for around $150. a week.
     
    searay Thanks this.

    I know. That's why when I saw your post I mentioned it to my husband and that's what he told me. I hope you can find something cheaper, but consider the wear and tear on the trailer. Are you going to be responsible if something goes wrong with it, like replacing a tire if it blows out, etc.? Just something to think about. : )

    I rented One before with National Semi Trailer for $350.00 per month and .04 per mile witch will pay for wear and tear. They did say if I sign a 6 month lease the charge will be $350.00 per month and I have to pay wear and tear no Mileage charge.

    I tried to lease one last year in Atlanta and nobody would lease to small operations. Ended up having to buy one, which by the way is for sale now.

    National Semi Trailer will lease to you with only one truck. If you still need one PM me I'll give you their number and contact person.
    After my busy time is over I may by a flatbed. Send me a PM with specs on trailer.

    Hate to tell ya this, But the words that came out of their mouth was they would not lease to small operations because they had too much trouble recovering equipment. I tried them and every other major leasing company in town and last year the answer was the same.

    I can't pm . Not enough posts
