Available Dry Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Dry Trailer rentals in Jacksonville

  • Track Fitted Trailers
    With the big sizes of trailers, manual loading becomes a time-consuming task. Track fitted dry trailers are best in easing the loading process. Cargo can be moved around in the cargo area with ease with the help of rail and tracks situated on the floor.
  • Wood Floor Trailers
    Dry trailers are best used to ship dry goods. Some of the dry goods are prone to damage if not well ventilated. Wood flooring helps in the flow of air in the cargo area. Apart from allowing the flow of air, a wooden floor is better equipped for the absorption of shock during transit.
  • Spring Ride Suspension Trailers 
    This is the most commonly used suspension for dry trailers. The structure of the trailer is held over the axle by the use of springs this helps in countering the sudden shocks that come about on the road.
  • Air Ride Suspension Trailers
    This uses the help of compressed air instead of metal springs to cushion the load being carried. Air present in air spring bags is responsible for creating a cushioning motion that creates a safe space between the chassis and the axle.
