Time For A New Drop-Deck Trailer? 3 Things To Consider When Purchasing A New Trailer

If it's time for a new trailer for your growing construction business, don't just settle on the first trailer that comes along. Instead, take the time to make sure you get the trailer that will suit your needs. There are a wide variety of trailers to choose from. If you've decided on a drop-deck trailer, you've made a good decision. Drop-deck trailers allow you to move large loads without worrying about height. That's because the deck can raise and lower, as needed. Once you've decided on the type of trailer you'll be purchasing, you'll still need to take a few considerations into account. Here are three important considerations you should take into account when purchasing a new trailer:

Never Underestimate Your Load Needs

When it comes to choosing a trailer, you may be tempted to underestimate your load needs. Unfortunately, that's the worst thing you can do when it comes to heavy-duty trailers. To prevent serious problems, and avoid the need to purchase another trailer before you're ready, always overestimate your load needs. To do that, determine the size of your largest common load, and choose a trailer that will accommodate a load slightly larger than that. It's better to have a trailer designed for a slightly larger load than you typically haul than to purchase a trailer that will lock you into lighter loads. It's also important to choose a trailer that will allow you to haul multiple pieces of equipment, such as a skip loader, and a bulldozer.

Look for One-Piece Design

When you're looking for a heavy-duty trailer, you want one that can take a serious beating. The best way to get that is to avoid trailers that are manufactured in multiple pieces. Remember that each joint and each connection will require welding, which can eventually weaken or fail, especially through excessive use. To ensure long-life and durability, choose a trailer with a one-piece design. That way, your trailer will have fewer welded joints and connections. This is particularly important if you're going to be hauling heavy loads on a daily basis.

Know the Brakes

When you're choosing a heavy-duty trailer, pay close attention to the braking system, especially if you'll be dealing with heavy loads. Make sure the trailer you choose comes equipped with brakes that are designed to give you the stopping power you'll need to avoid an emergency situation. Once you have your trailer, be sure to inspect your brakes on a monthly basis. That will ensure that you're able to keep tabs on their wear and tear.
