Before you start looking, here’s a few things you should keep in mind.

Buying a higher quality trailer with additional load capacity and features can pay off in the long term as your business grows.

What are some common businesses that depend on trailers? 

Each business will have its own needs, which is why we’re here to help the right company find the right trailer!

Trailers for Hotshot Freight Companies

One of the most common types of businesses that we work with are hotshot freight companies. The typical trailer we sell to a hotshot driver ranges between a 30’ gooseneck flatbed with singles up to a 40’ gooseneck flatbed with duals. We also have options for 44’ goosenecks all the way up to a 53’ step deck trailer!

Trailers for Construction Companies

For construction companies, we carry a wide variety of equipment trailers for hauling skid steers, backhoes, dozers and more. Additionally, you should consider if you need a trailer to haul off what your equipment will be displacing - we personally recommend a high quality dump trailer, which can handle construction site trash, dirt, and gravel with ease.

Trailers for Landscaping Companies

Landscaping companies need to be able to move around different types of equipment, such as mowers, tractors, and possibly even skid steers. Regardless, we have multiple types of equipment trailers to match up your needs. Additionally, we recommend dump trailers to help haul off different material, whether that be dirt, gravel, stone, or sand.


What are the financial benefits for my business? 

Many businesses purchase trailers as a tax deduction using a Section 179 depreciation deduction. With the variety of finance options we have available, you can start using your trailer to make a profit and receive tax benefits without having to pay for the entire thing. We have zero down options, low interest options, low monthly payment options, and even business financing that can help your business build credit. For those whose credit is tied up in other business expenses, we also offer a no credit check Rent to Own option that is popular.
