Purchasing a trailer, especially if you are a first-time buyer, can be intimidating. We want to go over some frequently asked questions you may have as you begin your search.

Cargo Trailer

What type of trailer do I need?
If you are looking at trailers for sale, you already know what you need it for. However, some trailers can be used for multiple purposes. You also have options of having an open utility trailer or fully enclosed cargo trailer. If you need to transport materials a long distance and need them to stay dry and secure, a cargo trailer will be your best bet. Or, if you just need to haul dirt a few miles down the road to your yard, a utility or dump trailer will be much more convenient. Consider the main reason you are getting the trailer but also consider other uses and if one trailer can fulfill multiple needs.

Should I buy new or used?
Of course new is always the preferred option. That way you know the trailer you are buying is in good shape and won’t have any hidden defects or visible wear and tear. However, if your budget is limited, a used trailer can also be a good option. You will just need to be much more diligent when looking over the trailer to check the tires, lights and other features. With used trailers, you can save on the initial cost but may have extra unforeseen costs soon down the road for parts or tires that need replaced. At Trailers & More, we have both new and used trailers for sale, so you can look at both options.

Utility Trailer

What do I need to pull the trailer?
Depending on the type and size of trailer you are looking to purchase, you want to be sure you have the proper vehicle to tow it. You also need to make sure you have the proper sized ball and hitch to do the job. We can assist with all of this, helping you know what trailers you can safely pull with your vehicle and what accessories you may need.

Do I need a trailer braking system?
For heavier trailers, a trailer brake control is recommended and often required. This allows the trailer brakes to sync with your vehicle brakes, providing better control when stopping and slowing down. We also carry brake controllers and can help install them in your vehicle.
