Renting a Trailer

Are You Considering Renting a Trailer? Here You Need to Know




Whether you’re preparing for a big move or moving heavy equipment from one destination to another, a utility trailer is your most viable option. Cargo, utility, and transport trailers for cars/motorcycles are an affordable solution for any mobility needs. Before renting, it is important to consider the different trailer types to determine which one is most suitable for your needs.

Here's a Booth Trailer guide on five tips to consider before renting a trailer:


Consider all Your Transport Trailer Options


There are many different types of transport trailers. These include a variety of features, sizes, styles and more. Before booking, consider which type best fits your needs. Here are the common types of trailers:


Cargo Trailers: Many cargo trailers are closed and have D-rings or tracking in the floor and wall tie downs inside. They are always lightweight which saves gas and allows them to be easily transported behind any vehicle. Enclosed cargo trailers protect most of the luggage inside from the weather and from the road during travel.


Utility Trailers: Utility trailers will combine large-sized cargo or landscape and industrial materials. They have an open access key that allows you to move tall and large objects. Utility trailers are great for furniture delivery, home improvement projects, and towing. Easily attached to almost any car, this trailer is convenient for loading and transporting items.


Flatbed Trailer: This type of trailer is used for different types of rental use for different industries. They can handle any work from small to large machinery attached to the truck. These trailers are very durable and keep the devices safe.


Guzenak Trailer: This type of trailer has increased stability and can carry more weight than other trailers. There is also more space to put any distance forward. You can’t take a gooseneck trailer with anything less than a pickup truck and they require a special hitch installation.


Know Your Towing Ability


Towing Capacity refers to the maximum weight your vehicle is capable of when pulling a trailer. To find out how heavy your trailer can be you need to find out your towing ability before you book a trailer. It is very dangerous to carry more weight than your vehicle. Here's how you can build your vehicle:


Find vehicle manufacturer weight ratings and compare them with the overall weight of your trailer.

This can often be located in the owner's guide or consult the vehicle's manufacturer.


Take Rental Pictures


When you’re ready for your trailer rental, don’t forget to take pictures of its state at the rental location. A representative often pays attention to the trailer and its safety measures if you leave as a full inspection, however, making your own final appearance is a good preventive measure.
