Do you need a trailer, but you're unsure what's likely to work best for you in the long run? Will a flatbed or tabletop option work well for business use? Should you invest in a cage trailer for carrying heavy cargo around? There are plenty of reasons why the simplest of options could offer you the simplest of solutions. However, it is sometimes worth considering specialist trailers and custom types. But what are some specialist trailers you may not have heard of? How could they benefit your daily business and home transportation needs? Here's a quick look at a handful of options. Tipper Trailers Will you be hauling cargo that's going to pile directly onto or into a destination site? If, yes, a tipper trailer is likely to be a great resource. For example, if you are hauling waste to a local landfill or recycling site, these trailers can tip forward to release their cargo. These trailers are also a useful option if you move heavy-duty goods. They will save you from straining or injuring yourself during offloading. Car Trailers and Carriers These trailers, as you may expect, handle and carry full cars and small vehicles. Fitted with ramping for drive-on and release, for a mobile mechanic they are a great fit. For example, if you need to take a customer's car from their premises in for repair, you can quickly load it straight on. These trailers are incredibly well reinforced. They may also benefit businesses who deal in scrap metal, who are for example likely to take scrapped cars to nearby sites for crushing. You can also buy trailers built to handle motorcycles and other light vehicles. There are even bigger car carriers which offer multiple levels and supports. If your business needs to pick up and deposit numerous vehicles, these options will likely make a sound investment. Horse Floats and Trailers There are many trailer types and systems ideal for hauling and caring for livestock on the road. A typical horsebox or float, for example, may offer partitioning to separate animals. They will, of course, also have plenty of ventilation and light. Many people use horse floats and trailers to carry livestock and animals of all sizes. Using a simple box trailer for carrying cows and sheep around perhaps isn't the safest option, so it’s always best to get a specialised design for these purposes. Trailers are like tools. Choose the one that will best do the job for you. Customise a Trailer We highly recommend considering a trailer customisation. Customising your trailer will mean that you can take advantage of features and facilities the above specialist types possess. What's more, you will have the option to reinforce and galvanise your trailer system in any way you see fit. It is worth remembering that you can customise even the most specialist of trailers. Therefore, never be afraid to reach out if you need more features than the default option offers.
