Benefits of Buying a Factory Direct Cargo Trailer


When searching for a cargo trailer, many people discover there are numerous trailer "lots" in their area. While this may seem like the most convenient option for buying a trailer, that convenience often comes at a cost. In today's post, we'll review some of the benefits of choosing a factory direct cargo trailer

Buying Off The Lot

Buying a ready-made trailer from a lot can come with a few drawbacks. Although they may be able to find exactly what they're looking for, in many cases customers have very specific needs for their cargo trailer--needs that may have to be sacrificed in order to buy something off the lot the same day.

3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Cargo Trailer


Thinking of buying a cargo trailer? We specialize in custom-built, enclosed cargo trailers to suit a variety of needs. We likely have something for just about any trailer buyer, but before you commit to a particular trailer, ask yourself these three questions first.

1. Aluminum or Steel?

Generally speaking, steel frame trailers are heavier but cheaper than aluminum. The central benefit of choosing an aluminum frame is the lighter weight, allowing you to haul heavier equipment without going over your gross vehicle weight (GVW). Aluminum trailers also are not going to have rust and oxidation issues that can occur with steel frame trailers. That being said, properly coated and undercoated steel frame trailers can sometimes last just as long as an aluminum trailer without rusting.

What are the benefits of getting a trailer wrap?


Trailer wraps can be a great way to promote your business or organization, but are they really worth the cost? In today's post, we'll review some of the benefits of using a quality trailer wrap on your enclosed cargo trailer.

Benefits of Trailer Wraps

1.) Effective Advertising


When you think about it, your trailer is like a billboard on wheels, able to reach a significant number of people on a daily basis. In 2014, The Outdoor Advertising Association of America found that vehicle wraps have the potential to reach 30,000 people or more per day. 


According to an independent study by The American Truckers Association, 98% of survey respondents believe fleet graphics create a positive brand image. Additional survey findings included the following:


  • 96% notice ads on vehicles
  • 96% believe vehicle wraps are more effective than billboards
  • 75% formed impressions about a company and its brand from fleet graphics



If you browse through popular trailer forums online, you'll also find a wealth of anecdotal evidence that supports the effectiveness of vehicle wraps and trailer wraps. 

2.) Affordable Branding

When you look at the cost of a typical trailer wrap ($1,500 to $4,000), and compare that with its potential reach, you'll see a better value per thousand views than for alternative methods of advertising, such as TV commercials, radio spots, print ads in newspapers, etc. 

According to the data collected by The Outdoor Advertising Association, vehicle wraps can reach 1,000 people at an average cost of around $0.15. In contrast, you would have to spend $11.51 on a local TV spot, $5.92 for a radio commercial, and $11.66 on a newspaper ad to achieve the same level of exposure.

3. Extra Layer of Protection

Trailer wraps provide -- quite literally -- an added layer of protection to your enclosed cargo trailer. With a wrap, your trailer will be less vulnerable to chips, scratches and weathering. And since the average lifespan of a trailer wrap is between 4-5 years, you get a pretty long-lasting layer of protection. 

Wraps also help your trailer maintain its value as they protect its outer paint coating and exterior structure.

We're not a one-size-fits-all cargo trailer company. In fact, we differentiate ourselves from the competition by specializing in custom-built trailers for a variety of uses. We are especially skilled at helping our customers find the perfect trailer solution to their business' unique needs. Depending on what type of service you provide, your cargo trailer needs will be different.

In today's post, we'll take a look at three examples of how we could match one of our products with your business. So, which trailer should you buy for your business?

Car Shipping/Transport Service

Let's say you run a growing car shipping service. You work with car dealerships all over the country. Your company transports their inventory between various locations, and therefore your drivers are travel long distances and are exposed to all kinds of weather. For this type of business, you'll likely need something that is large, lightweight and offers great stability on the road. Our All Aluminum Cargo Trailers would be a great place to start looking for what you need. These trailers feature all-aluminum frames, which make them lighter than their steel-framed counterparts.

Single Axle, Tandem Axle...What's the Difference?


If you're considering the purchase of a new, custom-built cargo trailer, you may be wondering what type of axle is best for your needs. The two basic options are the single axle and the double (tandem) axle. So what are the differences between these two axle types? Does the axle type affect trailer performance? Is one more expensive than the other? We'll answer these questions below as we explore the differences between single and tandem trailer axles.

Single Axle


First, let's talk about the singe axle option for you custom cargo trailer. A single axle trailer, as the name implies, has just one axle with one wheel connected to each end. The single axle is connected to the trailer either via the springs or is fixed directly to the trailer bed with clamps or some other type of supporting hardware.
