What should you look for when buying a trailer?

When buying a trailer, it is important to consider the risks involved in buying a used one that will probably need parts soon. Check for rust on the chassis, make sure the suspension is working properly, check the lights, make sure the joints between parts are solid, make sure the handbrake is working properly and check the tires for tread wear, dry cracks and DOT coding. When buying a trailer, it is also important to think about the type you need. The following types are common.

The Kipper

A Kipper trailer is a flatbed trailer in which the body can tilt manually, electrically or hydraulically with a pump. This can be done backwards or sideways. Kipper trailers are ideal if you regularly transport loads that you want to be able to tip out. Examples include sand, stones, gravel, garden soil and construction waste. Depending on the use of your Kipper, there are several options to consider when purchasing, such as manual or automatic (electric) operation and single-axle or double-axle tipper trailers. Kippers are available in different load capacities, ranging from 1,400 kg to 3,500 kg.

The Multitransport trailer

A multitransporter is a flatbed trailer suitable for transporting loose cargo, vehicles, machinery and more. With a multitransporter you can go in any direction and be assured of the highest quality and safety. Depending on the transports you want to carry out, you can choose from various sizes and types of multitransporters with a load capacity of 750 to 3500 kilos and trailers that are available up to a length of 6 meters.

You can also choose from various sizes and types of multitransporters with an all-seater or tandem model, in different sizes and with different loading heights. The multitransporter is much like a flatbed truck and offers many advantages, such as the multifunctionality of the vehicle. Buying a multitransporter can be a difficult choice. So be sure to read up on the pros and cons for your construction company beforehand.
