Renting a Trailer- The Right Move

Moving can be a stressful and pricey. When getting ready for your move, you’ll need to consider a few options so you can save money.

For most of us, the cost of hiring movers makes it necessary to search for other ways. If you want to save money and do the move yourself, you’ll need a truck or trailer rental. Renting a moving truck is a great way to save money when compared to hiring experts to do the job. A truck can be a fraction on the price, which makes it a great alternative for families needing to move large items like furniture.

The kind of trailer to rent is one more thing to consider when getting ready to move. Trailers are available in numerous sizes, which makes it easy for you to get the right size for the move. Getting the right size for your trailer rental depends on how many rooms you need to move. You should be able to tow your car behind the trailer, all you need is a hitch.
Moving doesn’t need to be expensive, not when you can rent your own trailer. Make sure you contact a reputable company to rent a trailer from, it will make all the difference.

Southwest Trailer Rentals launches trailer inspection service at U.S/Mexico border crossings

SAN DIEGO, CA.,July 14, 2011-SWTL has announced a new service to US, Canadian and Mexican carriers to inspect and document the condition of their trailers before and after a border crossing. This will help carriers verify compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements, a key part of legislation–and a concern for the driving public. Carriers face delays and potential fines if their trailers are inspected at the border and not found in compliance with DOT regulations.

If repairs are warranted, SWTL service units can also complete the work promtly and get the trailer back into service and avoid fines and ensuing delays.

Which is more cost effective for you, spring or air-ride?

It is commonly thought that air-ride suspended trailers are superior to spring-ride trailers due to the functionality and diversity of freight that you can carry with an air-ride trailer. While it is important to have air-ride when you are carrying light and sensitive loads, but there is actually no difference in air-ride vs. spring-ride when carrying over 44,000 lbs. Considering that the national average for freight loads is over 44,000lbs, a spring-ride trailer is in no way inferior. Additionally, spring-ride dry vans cost less to maintain than an air-ride, as well as weighing 350lbs. less. Lb. per lb. a spring-ride trailer will save you money in the long run. So, the next time your customer insists on an air-ride trailer, explain to him/her, that money will be saved by going spring.
