Why would someone buy a used trailer?
One use for Car Trailers is a way to transport items without damaging your car; they can also be for portable catering and hospitality. Depending on what you need from your trailer, there are different types available. Used trailers are appealing due to their lower cost compared to buying brand new. Just because something is used, does not mean it isn’t still in great condition. Trailers are used for more than just function, they are also great marketing tools depending on how they are used, and how you decorate and brand them.
What types of trailers are there?
Exhibition and Hospitality Trailers
There are so many variants of Exhibition Trailers, they can be small compact spaces, or they can open up to expansive exhibition centres. Depending on the size and weight, these used trailers will require more powerful vehicles to tow them. Hospitality Trailers, and other Mobile buildings, are very similar used trailers to the Exhibition trailers, and can be over 7 metres long!
Small trailers are not as heavy and therefore can be used with a wider range of vehicles. Box Trailers are great for transporting motorcycles and vehicles, for events such as track days. They are also used for livestock; Stock Trailers can move horses to different locations, such as a race track. A box trailer is a universal term for a trailer with solid walls and isn’t refrigerated.
Catering Trailers are some of the most recognisable trailers, used for serving food at events, roadsides, or private functions. The beauty of a used trailer for catering, is there will be equipment already installed and ready to go!
What should you check for when buying a used trailer?
Although all our used trailers on sale are checked and tested, you should always look for yourself. You need to make sure that what you are buying is fit for purpose.
Make sure you check the condition of the floors on any used trailers you buy. If the floor is made from wood, then check for rot and decay. If the floor is made from steel, it could have developed some rust, which would weaken the overall structure.
Make sure the tyres are road worthy and there is no obvious damage to them. There still needs to be the legal requirement of tread available to make them road legal. If the trailer is used, and for sale, then you can’t just assume that the tyres have been checked and replaced.
Brake lights need to be operational and the brakes need to engage. Hook the used trailer up before you buy it to check all the braking is working.
Wear & Tear
A used trailer is going to have some bumps and scrapes, look over used trailers to make sure you are happy with any imperfections. Some wear and tear is inevitable, but that should also be reflected in the price.
