Flatbed and tabletop trailers may not always be the first choice of Australian motorists. Many may choose cage or box trailers for the simple fact that they appear to offer a little more in the way of security. However, is this really always the case? Buying a tabletop trailer, which is open by design, can seem like a poor choice if security matters to you. It's safe to say that different needs and demands will require different types of trailers. However, while box trailers and cage trailers will likely be very secure for some types of cargo and loading, there's nothing to say a tabletop trailer offers zero in the way of stability and security. Let's take a close look at the benefits of a tabletop trailer when it comes to security. Tabletop Trailers Don't Have to Be So Open As mentioned, some people may feel that tabletop trailers offer too much of an open platform. However, you can buy tabletops with limited walling, and some with platforms at height. Therefore, the default open design of these systems is suddenly less easy to access than you might imagine. You can customise a tabletop trailer in any way you see fit. The significant benefit to a tabletop is the flat, open space. However, if you need added security, it's possibly one of the best trailer types you can work with. That's because a tabletop design is often so basic – it's very easy to build on. You Get a Lot of Stability with Tabletop Trailers Tabletop and open trailers are ideal if you need extra stability on the road. They are famous for their load-bearing capacity. In fact, that is often what tips people over to tabletops in the first place. Therefore, with a tandem axle and with secure strapping and fastening, you might find you actually get a bit more security than you expect. Of course, this will depend on the cargo you wish to load. However, providing you securely fasten cargo to a tabletop, there will be little reason for it to move around and fall off your trailer. Ideas about flatbed and tabletop trailers being flimsy or unsecured are misnomers. However, one of the benefits of a tabletop trailer is that they are very supportive with a wide variety of different demands. You Can See What's Going On Security is not just about keeping things locked down. It's about being able to see what's going on. With some cage and box trailers, you are putting some faith in your cargo being safe behind closed walls. At least, with a tabletop trailer, you can see what you are hauling. Depending on your cargo, it may be easier for you to tell what, if anything, is missing. This visual security is a strong reason why many Australian business owners and motorists choose tabletop trailers in the first place.
