A semi-trailer is a haulage vehicle used to transport goods, useful for narrow urban streets and the confines of a construction site. Semi-trailers come in a range of shapes and sizes, including box semi-trailers that are commonly used to transport pallets of non-perishable goods and flatbed trailers that are used to transport shipping containers, as well as dump trailers for transporting sand, gravel, building materials and agricultural products that tip up to allow the cargo to slide out.
Should I Buy or Hire?
You may want to consider buying a semi-trailer outright if you expect to use it regularly in the long term so that one is always available when needed. However, in addition to the upfront costs, there are constant and regular expenditures that come with owning a semi-trailer. This includes paying insurance and maintenance. For temporary or irregular use, rentals are preferable, plus you can expect to pay much less in the long-term with affordable semi-trailer hire rates.
What Should I Consider When Renting a Semi-Trailer?
There are several things you should consider before you rent a semi-trailer. Firstly, it’s important to check that the haulage capacity meets your particular cargo needs. In addition, you should ensure that it’s available when required and check that the semi-trailer hire rates align with your budget.
