What are the Benefits of a Utility Trailer?

What are the benefits of a custom utility trailer

Utility trailers come in all shapes and sizes and have literally hundreds of uses. If you’ve ever owned one, you’ll know that it is an incredibly useful and versatile tool.

Trailers can be manufactured from strong, durable materials, like iron, aluminum or steel, and depending on your requirements, can be custom made to carry almost any load.

Bigger Isn’t Always Better

Utility trailers are not just large, cumbersome workhorses used to haul bulky loads and they don’t all require big vehicles to tow them. Custom trailers come in various sizes and you don’t necessarily need to buy the biggest one you can afford. It is important to choose one to suit your specific needs and requirements. If you have a large manufacturing plant then you probably need a large trailer. But if you own a garden maintenance or handyman business, then a smaller utility trailer is just the thing for you.

Single-axle or Tandem-axle

Knowing your needs and what you will mostly be using the trailer for, will help you decide between a single-axle or tandem-axle trailer. You don’t want to be towing a big tandem-axle trailer if it’s not necessary but you also don’t want to buy a single-axle trailer and then discover it can’t do the job you want it to. Single-axle trailers have fewer tires and weigh less than the more robust tandem-axle model. This makes them more maneuverable but it also means that they can’t carry as much. So if you only need a lightweight trailer for small jobs then the single-axle model is the perfect option. For larger, heavier loads, the bigger tandem-axle is a better choice.

Open or Enclosed

Utility trailers can be open or enclosed, depending on customer requirements. Custom made open trailers are often needed for large industrial machinery or certain types of raw material while enclosed trailers are better suited to the transport of finished products and complex or sensitive equipment. For transport companies, it is important to own a variety of utility trailers to meet the needs of different types of customers.

Big Business

Factories and manufacturing plants always need to transport goods, machinery, and equipment from the factory to the customer or from one site to another. Owning a number of different sized trailers with different build specifications can be useful for industrial companies and large manufacturing plants. Having company owned trailers means that a business is not reliant on a haulage companies timetable. Automotive companies all rely on utility trailers to transport their vehicles around the country.
Weekend Warriors

Many people have a variety of sports gear and hobby equipment. This can range from bicycles, motorbikes, quads and snowmobiles. If you enjoy outdoor sports and are a weekend warrior, a utility trailer is a must have. It is the easiest, safest, and most convenient way to transport all your gear and equipment, and can be customized to suit your adventure needs.

Household Necessity

A small utility trailer is also a useful piece of household equipment. You might not think you need one, but once you’ve owned one you won’t know what to do without it. It is an easy and convenient way to transport furniture, gardening supplies and household appliances from one property to another.
