Available Dry Van Trailer Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Dry Van Trailers listed for rent in Boston, MA include:

General Dry Van Trailer

A general dry van trailer references the term that many in the trucking industry use to refer to the common variation of dry trailers. A dry van trailer is enclosed, typically with an aluminum roof and sides, and generally has either wooden flooring or aluminum flooring that is made to be water-resistant, and has the capacity to load 20,000 lbs. or more in freight, depending on the length of the dry van trailer.

Pup Trailers

A pup trailer is a general dry trailer that comes in a smaller size. The 20 ft., 24 ft., 28 ft. variations are all considered to be “pup trailers”, and these trailers are great for additional space when compared to a box / straight truck that might not be as large, but they’re also not so large that they take as much room and skill to maneuver as a 45 ft. and longer dry trailer may require.

Drop-Frame Van Trailer

A drop-frame trailer could be either a regular dry van trailer, or a pup trailer, but what defines this type of trailer is having two levels for its cargo deck. Typically, the higher level for the deck is the standard size that is the height needed to attach to the tractor truck that is pulling it. Then the next level “drops” down to allow for taller cargo that wouldn’t be able to fit into a standard enclosed trailer to fit into the drop-frame trailer.

Dry Van Trailer Brands

COOP offers multiple brands of rentals in Boston, MA, check below for some potential brands for rent depending on availability.

Great Dane

Great Dane was founded in 1900, and this American manufacturer is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

Known for trailers that can be trusted to reliably transport heavy-duty freight, this manufacturer is a great choice for your dry trailer needs. Keep an eye out for their Great Dane Champion or Great Dane Sahara series when looking for one of their great enclosed dry trailers.

Dry Van Trailer Uses

The commercial fleet vehicles rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for Dry Van Trailers rented on COOP.

Residential & Commercial Moving Services

A dry trailer keeps its contents safe from external elements, and often can support the use of a ramp and moving helpers like dollies to load up all of your residential or commercial furniture. Keeping it safe and secure through the last mile of your trip, a dry trailer is a great tool for residential and commercial moves you may be working on.


Construction companies use a variety of vehicles for different elements of their jobs, but the dry van is a great vehicle for transporting construction materials that can’t be subjected to the weather. One good example of this includes cabinets or flooring panels that need to be transported and kept dry from the rain and protected from the sun, otherwise, they risk warping and costing the construction company money to replace it.

Appliance Delivery

For the same reasons why a construction company would enthusiastically use a dry trailer to protect their flooring and cabinetry from the elements while transporting it between sites, an appliance delivery company or an appliance wholesaler would trust the dry trailer to keep their appliances secure and dry while delivering them to their next destination.
