5 Types of Trailers You Can Buy at Salvagebid


Expansion plans, seasonal demands, periodic replacements – there are many reasons for which businesses and individuals turn to salvage industrial equipment auctions to buy utility trailers, as they allow them to meet their needs without stressing their finances. While you can always count on a trusted auction platform such as Salvagebid.com to give you a large inventory of trailers, it is important to be clear about your needs and know about the various types of trailer featured in our industrial equipment auctions. On that note, we’re presenting a list of the top five types of utility trailers you can find in our inventory. Take a look. 

1. Utility Trailer

Utility trailers can be attached to almost all kinds of vehicles and can come in handy when it comes to storing small volumes of goods. It is, however, important to remember that utility trailers come in various sizes, so it all depends on the towing capacity of the vehicle with which they are used. You can find an array of utility trailers in our online industrial equipment auctions. 

2. Flatbed Trailer

Flatbed trailers are without a doubt one of the most versatile trailers you can buy for hauling purposes. Whatever your transport needs are, a flatbed trailer can help get the job done without any hassles. As these trailers are open from all sides, you can use multiple people to load and unload goods. You can also easily use equipment like forklifts and cranes to load and unload cargo. 

3. Enclosed Trailer

Also called “dry vans”, enclosed trailers are ideal to transport goods that need to be protected from natural elements and other threats. These trailers are commonly used to transport high-value goods such as food and beverages, automobiles, healthcare supplies, and various other things that demand extra security during transportation. One of the key distinctions of these trailers is that you can increase the storage space by putting up shelves. 

4. Construction Trailer

Construction trailers, as the name suggests, are commonly deployed at construction sites to set up a temporary office and/or provide storage space for building materials. Although these trailers are generally equipped with the provisions for telephone and electricity lines, they generally do not include a bathroom. While being used, these trailers can be skid-mounted or positioned on piles.

5. Specialty Trailer

Specialty trailers are specifically manufactured to cater to the specific transportation requirements of sensitive goods. While some goods, such as food items, may require extremely low temperatures, other goods, such as industrial chemicals, may require a certain pressure to be maintained during transportation. Specialty trailers are designed to transport all such goods that must be transported in a specific environment.
