Trailer Transport and Shipping

Trailer transport and shipping is more intensive than shipping a vehicle. As such, a much more thorough assessment of the trailer, depending on it’s type and size, is required before shipment. The tires need to be road-ready, if it’s a trailer with items inside- they need to be tied and locked down, and all types of trailer needs to be measured for it’s height, width, length, and weight.

Our company does ship trailers, as we’ve shipped almost everything there is in terms of commercial vehicles, as well as heavy equipment and boats. If we can’t ship it ourselves, we can connect you to reliable carriers who can.

How much does Trailer Transport and Shipping cost?

Since there are many different types and sizes of trailers, and since some trailers would better be towed than put on a flatbed, the price can really fluctuate. However, the prices one gets are reasonable and affordable, because of the high competition in the shipping industry.

What we need from you

The trailer may be towed, or put on a flatbed, depending on it’s size. Below is a handy guide to let you know what you need for each method. In general, you want to make sure that everything in your trailer is secured. You will also need to have the basic dimensions including the length, width, height and approximate weight. Also, make sure to inspect the trailer beforehand to ensure it is safe to ship.

If the trailer is being towed:

  1. The license plate and tags are up to date.
  2. The tail lights work.
  3. The tires are in good condition.
  4. The status of the trailer in that if it’s running or not running.
  5. Everything in the trailer locked down.

If it is to be put on a flatbed:

  1. The length, width and height
  2. The GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)
  3. The measurements of the tires.
  4. All dangerous items are removed from the trailer, like propane or ammunition.

For both:

  1. That everything in the trailer is secured.
  2. The length, width, height and GVWR of the trailer.
  3. Inspect the condition of the trailer to be sure it can be safely transported.
