Moving can require making lots of decisions. One crucial choice is the type of vehicle you should rent to transport your belongings. While a traditional moving van can meet the needs of most people, there are many other options to consider. The possibilities range from small pickup trucks to full-size tractor-trailers. The versatile utility trailer is an "outside the box" solution that can work well in some situations.
Here's a closer look at the types of vehicles you can select for moving:
A utility trailer is an open-top unit you can attach to a car or truck equipped with a towing hitch. These trailers typically serve the needs of construction companies and other businesses for hauling heavy equipment and large objects. However, their sturdy design and maneuverability also enable them to accommodate bulky household items during a move. Utility trailers are available in a wide range of deck lengths and weight capacities to meet multiple transportation requirements.
Examples of the items you can haul with a utility trailer include:
The types of items you're looking to transport can dictate whether a utility trailer or a moving truck is the better choice for your situation. If you're hauling large objects over relatively short distances, renting a trailer gives you a safe, cost-effective solution. They come with tie-down rings that allow you to secure the pieces and prevent them from shifting during the move.
You can also benefit from using a utility trailer in conjunction with a standard moving vehicle. By transporting your oversized objects separately, you can free up more space in a truck or van for your household items. You'll also avoid issues like fuel or oil spilling from a garden tractor and damaging clothing or furniture.
