All trailers and semi-trailers are different, and you should know certain details about them before you can rent one. The Youtube video “What to look for when buying a dry van” describes exactly how you can find the best trailer for your needs. Let’s find out more!
Shippers and receivers all want different specs or features, and you want to invest in semi-trailers that can fit into most standards. You don’t want to spend a bunch of money and be stuck with a trailer that can’t be used for certain areas.
That’s why renting is also a better idea than buying in some situations.
Firstly, you should know that most shippers want a trailer that’s less than ten years old. That’s what most renters are looking for, and why you’ll find that most trailers that fit that description cost so much more. If you look for 11 or 12-year-old trailers, those start becoming cheaper and cheaper the older they are. However, there’s also a chance you might have very specific shippers, and it’s important to know how to accommodate them. Now, you’ll normally need a 53-foot trailer.
