Available Tractor Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Tractors listed for rent in Durham, NC include:

Pup Trailers

Pup trailers are smaller than average general trailers. They are mostly used especially in congested places and measure about 26 ft to 29 ft long. While they can be used independently, they can also be attached and used with other trailers.

General Trailers

These are the common dry trailers, often larger than the pup trailers. They can be as long as 53 ft and are available for rent on COOP for businesses in Durham. You can use your general trailer rental for hauling items like furniture, retail stock, appliances, and equipment, etc.

Refrigerated Trailers

Other trailers come with refrigeration units fitted in the cargo area. As such, they are ideal for the transportation of temperature-sensitive freight. Refrigerated trailers are also usually classified further to cater to the different business needs.

Flatbed Trailers

Flatbed trailers are flat open with no roof or sides. They sit lower than other trailers to fit in more room for tall freight. Without a roof or sides, flatbed trailers are used for hauling large cargo that is impossible to carry with enclosed trailers.

Tractor 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 Tractors rented on COOP.

Automobile Hauling

Big trailers, especially flatbed trailers are used for hauling automobiles. In fact, some big trailers can haul multiple cars at the same time, and are also used to carry large locomotives that aren’t safe to drive on roads.

Transporting Appliances

For obvious reasons, electronics are delicate, hence need protection for exposure to excessive heat and cold during transportation. From home appliances to commercial machines, most of these items can be shipped via dry trailers. If you own an electronic shop then you might need dry trailers to deliver merchandise for your shop and also to deliver to your customers.

Fresh Produce

Refrigerated trailers are the most ideal for hauling fresh produce. Produce from the farm and dairy requires refrigeration to keep it fresh throughout. The best part is that these reefer trailers allow for the regulation of temperature, and they also come in many types to accommodate different cargo. Renting a large reefer trailer reduces the number of trips you take which in the long run saves you money.

Heavy Hauling

Trailers are also used for the transportation of heavy cargo. For instance, a 53 ft trailer has more room for cargo when compared to a 26 ft trailer, which also translates to a higher cargo weight capacity. Also, flatbed trailers are often used for the transportation of large cargo which is usually extremely heavy.


How much does it cost to rent a trailer for a month?

This will depend on the kind of trailer you need. For instance, when you rent with COOP, you can find a dry trailer starting from $20 per day or a flatbed one starting from $21 per day.

What size trailer do I need to move produce?

COOP has a variety of different-sized trailers for rent in Durham. Starting from small 24-footer and 26-footer trailers to bigger 53-footer trailers.

Can I use a rental trailer for my transport business?

Absolutely! Once you rent a trailer with COOP, you are able to comfortably use it for your transport business.
