Trailers FAQs

Is an aluminum or galvanized trailer better?

  • Choosing between an aluminum or galvanized trailer depends on your usage needs. Aluminum is water-resistant, lighter and less prone to corrosion than steel. Galvanized steel is carbon steel dipped into zinc and coated. It can be heavier and is typically more expensive. However, thinking through your hauling needs, you might consider one over the other. For example, an aluminum trailer would be ideal as a boat trailer for fresh water only. A galvanized trailer rental could be used for more industrial, heavy-duty hauling for a construction or building site. 

What are the types of trailers?

  • There are many types of trailers, from flatbeds to refrigerated to water. It’s important to choose a trailer that satisfies your project’s load needs. Our fleet features a variety of trailers — such as 500-gallon water trailers, mobile tool trailers, furniture trailers, walk-behind trencher trailers, single-axle hydraulic trailers and many more — to fit your exact hauling needs.  

How far back should a trailer axle be?

  • Correct placement of the trailer axle can ensure safe and easy towing for your construction and industrial hauling needs. The rule of thumb for placement is the 60/40 rule. Measure the length of the trailer cargo box or platform, but do not include the trailer tongue. Then, multiply this length times 0.4. The result is the distance from the center of the cargo box to the center of the axle. For example, a 10-foot box is 10 x 0.4 = 4. You would mount the axle so that the axle center point is 4 feet from the rear of the trailer.
