During the pinnacle period of American passenger trains, this wagon was heavily utilized because the majority of journeys were rail-based. As a result, there was a significant amount of luggage and light freight that required moving to and from the stations.
The Stakebed Wagon proved invaluable in providing this service. Wagons of this kind were also relied upon for heavier deliveries, including the transportation of household furniture.

Question: How do you ship this vehicle to me?
Answer: We coordinate shipments of large freight items - such as our wagons, carriages, and coaches - within a network of private carriers so that your freight is safely transported to your destination without transfer. These are usually coordinated as partial loads in order to save costs, so it can take anywhere between 2 days to 2 weeks to find a ride. They will be transported in enclosed vans that vary from "U-Haul" size box vans to full 53' semi trailers. Contact us for more information and freight quotes. You may also arrange your own shipping through uship.com.
Question: How do I offload this vehicle at delivery?
Answer: If you have a delivery location with a loading dock available this is your best option. However, we can also deliver to any location that a semi-trailer can access. We then recommend coordination with a towing service to use a tilt-bed wrecker truck. The vehicle can be rolled off the trailer on to the bed of the wrecker truck and it will be tilted/lowered down to the ground from there.
