Here are some possible variations of trailer rentals in Arlington

Pup Trailers

Pup trailers are a shorter version of dry vans and can be anything between 26 to 29 feet in length. While general dry trailers haul more cargo, pup trailers can be used to make local deliveries and oftentimes are used for over-the-road doubles and triples. It is easier to make deliveries or pickups using pup trailers in urban centers like Arlington. 


General Dry Van Trailers

General dry van trailers are the most common dry trailers. A standard general dry van trailer will measure up to 53 feet which is the general maximum dry trailer length. With general dry trailers, businesses will be able to make a choice depending on their line of work since they offer a wide range of options to choose from. 


Refrigerated Trailers

Refrigerated trailers are also known as reefer trailers. They are temperature-controlled trailers used for the transportation of frozen goods and other temperature-sensitive goods with a maximum freight weight ranging from 42,000 lb. to 45,000 lb. Also, maximum lengths of reefer trailers are from 48 ft. to 53 ft, with maximum heights and widths of 8.2 ft. and 8 ft. respectively. Reefer trailers can also be used to haul cargo that does not require temperature control.

Step Deck Trailers

They have a maximum payload of 48,000 lb. with a legal freight height of up to 10 ft. Also, most step decks have maximum lengths varying from 48 ft. to 53 ft, with widths of up to 8.5 ft.

Flatbed Trailers

With flatbed trailers, loading and unloading of freight can be done from any side. This, plus the versatility flatbed trailers offer makes them some of the best trailers in the trailer market. The maximum freight weight of flatbed trailers is 48,000 lb, and the allowed freight height is up to 8.5 ft. Also, most trailers have a maximum width of 8.5 ft. and can be as long as 53 ft.

Trailer Uses

Transporting Non-perishable Foods

Another major use of dry vans is the transportation of non-perishable foods. Goods that do not spoil easily, including some beverages are usually transported using dry trailers. The good thing is, the dry vans are high enough to allow the goods to be stacked upon each other. This means that more goods will be transported, as long as they do not exceed the maximum cargo load the trailer can carry.


Pick-ups and Deliveries

Standard dry trailers like pup trailers are used to make pick-ups and deliveries. Their size, which is smaller than the general dry van trailers allows them to easily maneuver urban spaces and make the required pick-up or delivery. Also, dry van trailers can be used to carry a wide range of loads which makes them ideal for businesses in different fields.


Machinery Hauling

Dry trailers are widely used for the transportation of huge machinery. They are mostly heavy duty and hence can easily haul heavy machinery without compromising on efficiency in terms of performance. What’s more, hauling huge and heavy machinery via dry vans reduces possible risks for road transportation since the trailers are fully enclosed. Some of this machinery include building machinery, like a big ship, aircraft parts, and construction materials, etc.


Moving House and Office Furniture 

Dry vans are one of the most convenient ways of moving household items. Dry trailers are enclosed and are big enough to accommodate most if not all of the household items needed to be moved. They are also used when moving offices. From big appliances to heavy furniture and everything in between. Also, dry trailers offer convenience in so many ways, like protecting the items and keeping them intact during transportation.


Carrying Textile and Clothing Items

Clothing and other textile items are transported using dry vans. They are enclosed and as such, don’t risk bad weather like rain or extreme heat which may tamper with the quality of the clothes. Also, most clothing and textile items are transported in bales and bundles, so huge quantities can be transported in one single trip.
