When buying a construction trailer, first identify the purpose of the trailer. If you plan to use the trailer for hauling odd-shaped cargo, you can go with a trailer with an open flatbed and an incline. For hauling cargo that must be protected from the elements, choose an enclosed trailer.
The requirements of loading is another factor to consider when selecting a construction trailer. Quality construction trailers can contain many spring-assisted ramp options, while others can have folding gates, steps, and a third ramp for easier loading and unloading.
Also look at the available convenience and safety features. For heavy loads, choose a trailer with brakes. Other features to consider include lighting, load tie downs and the type of ramps.
