A storage trailer allows you to move things from one location to another with ease – whether it’s across your job site or to another state. Storage trailers feature roll up or swing doors, and are dock, pallet jack, and forklift accessible. Made from aluminum and steel, storage trailers are strong enough to endure road service and heavy forklift or pallet jack use.
Storage trailers are ideal for local storage or nationwide transportation and offer a quick and easy way to expand capacity. If you’re in a seasonal business where demand increases at certain points of the year, you can use a storage trailer to hold onto additional inventory.
Storage trailers are available in a variety of standard sizes, including 28 ft., 40 ft., 45 ft., and 53 ft. so you can find the one that best meets your requirements. Some maintenance is involved to keep it mobile over time. How much maintenance they require heavily depends on how much you’re transporting the trailer along with the climate and cleanliness of the storage location. Maintenance will be different for storage trailers stored on pavement vs. dirt, for instance.
Investing in a storage trailer for your business ensures you have the space you need to store or transport items whenever you need it. You don’t have to worry about the hassle of a monthly expense associated with renting one every time you need it, and you’ll always know one is available when you need it to be.
Keep in mind that a storage trailer is not the same thing as a storage container. Storage containers are transported to your location and then offloaded, at which point they will sit flat on the ground for ground level loading. Trailers on the other hand remain on the frame and sit at loading dock height to make it easier to load and unload.
