Small work trailers can be purchased at home improvement stores such as Lowe's and Home Depot. Tractor Supply, Southern States, Northern Tool and other farm and tool stores usually have a small selection of good work trailers in a variety of sizes and styles. Work trailers can be purchased used on Craigslist.org, eBay.com, and local classified ads.
Equipment dealers often carry trailers. John Deere and Kubota dealers, for example, also carry trailers. If you are looking for a trailer that is enclosed, then you may want to try a recreational vehicle dealer in your area. Enclosed trailers offer the advantage of security and protection of your tools and supplies.
It is important to check the weight limits of a trailer you might buy. Smaller trailers have a correspondingly smaller weight capacity than larger ones. Used car dealerships and pawn shops occasionally have work trailers in good condition. Auto auctions and surplus sales can result in a good bargain.
Double axle trailers offer more stability and hauling capacity but also cost more to purchase. It is best to compare prices at multiple retailers in order to get the best deal. Smaller hardware stores often sell work trailers for riding lawnmowers and small all terrain vehicles.
