Features and Uses of Hauling Trailers
We all know that car hauling trailers are basically flat surfaces with tires or wheels, which can easily be attached to tow trucks. These highly utilitarian equipment pieces can be tugged even through busy streets and highways without the application of too much effort. In general, trailers do not come with devices which can be used for operating them individually. Some of them, however, come with inbuilt mechanized features that are useful when it comes to making adjustments for handling bulky cargo items. But ultimately, they have to be pulled by a truck or some other vehicle in order to make them move.
Standard Features
Car hauling trailers are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes. They are generally manufactured using durable galvanized steel, so that they can provide an adequate amount of support to heavy cars and other equipment kept on them. There are some features common to trailers of all makes and models. Let’s have a quick look at them:
  • Platform or bed
  • Wheels
  • Ramps
  • Chains
  • Fender bars
  • Jack
  • Tandem duals
  • LED lighting
  • Reflective tape

Some models designed for carrying extremely heavy cargo come with special and advanced features like high side rails. Their surfaces also have treads which facilitate increased movement at the time of loading and unloading, and reduce slipping and swaying on the move. Some manufacturers even make variants with completely enclosed doors that can secure as well as protect the contents efficiently.
The greatest benefit of car hauling trailers is that they can be used for transporting a wide range of goods besides cars. Some people even use them for a variety of purposes, a few of which are mentioned below:
  • Carrying camping equipment such as tents, skis, mobile homes, motorcycles, etc.
  • Moving heavy gardening tools from one place to another like lawn mowers, wheelbarrows and so on.
  • Hauling boats and other small sized water vessels
  • Transporting furniture, appliances and other goods during relocation
  • Moving bulky building supplies like sacks of gravels and cements from manufacturing companies to construction sites.

Flatbed trailers are also used for taking damaged vehicles to auto repair shops. At times, they may even be used in road shows and parades for setting up a mobile stage or display area for merchandises.
