Whether you are moving to a new house or furnishing your current home, you most likely need a way to transport your furniture. Hiring a moving company is expensive, and getting your furniture and other items transported isn’t easy. Having your own trailer to haul furniture will allow you to get whatever pieces you need to your house easily and without the cost of paying the movers.
What Kind of Trailer is Best for Hauling Furniture?
Many different trailers will do the job for whatever types of furniture you need to get from point A to point B. However, there are advantages and disadvantages to different kinds of trailers. Make sure you have the best trailer for the job in order to ensure a quick and painless move.
Utility Trailers for Moving Furniture
If you aren’t worried about the weather getting to your furniture during your move, utility trailers will do the job. Utility trailers are perfect on a sunny day with a short trip to your destination. Depending on the size of the trailer, you could carry up to 5,000 pounds of furniture as well as the rest of your items.
Utility trailers will most likely have more areas on the trailer to tie things down with ropes or bungee cords. If you need more ways to tie your furniture down, check out available trailer accessories for loops and rings to firmly secure whatever you are hauling. If you are concerned about a little rain, a hefty tarp will work to shield your furniture.
Enclosed Trailers for Moving Furniture
Another option for hauling furniture is to use an enclosed cargo trailer. There are many advantages to having a trailer that is enclosed rather than a regular utility trailer. For one, by enclosing your furniture, you are protecting it from the elements. This keeps the rain and the dirt from getting into your couch pillows or ruining the finish on your bedside tables. For longer trips, an enclosed cargo trailer is especially helpful due to the fact that you can easily lock up your furniture inside the trailer. No need to worry while you stop at a hotel or take some time to get a bite to eat.
