Dry Trailer Rental in Boston, MA

A dry trailer, also known as a box trailer, is an enclosed box-shaped trailer that can be attached to a tractor truck. This trailer is beneficial because it protects its cargo from the elements, and makes securing the load easy due to it being enclosed.

Available Dry Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Dry Trailer rentals in Boston

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.

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.
