Because of the U.S. recession, many people have faced foreclosures to their homes and have had to move with their belongings to new towns and cities. Instead of renting a truck to move belongings, some have opted to buy an enclosed cargo trailer from TrailersPlus to move and store goods and belongings in new locations.
TrailersPlus offers cargo trailers, enclosed trailers, and other utility vehicles for your moving needs. Plus, TrailersPlus is a nationally recognized firm with service providers and sales teams in 38 stores in over 16 states.
Using enclosed cargo trailers is a good option when moving and storing goods. Enclosed utility trailers are portable, they keep your goods warm and dry, and they’re sturdy enough for the heaviest of your personal belongings.
If you are planning to use utility trailers, here are a few steps we recommend to you to consider to keep your goods safe and in top shape:
- Get the proper permissions from city, town or HOA offices to have a parked trailer in your driveway. Some HOA rules prohibit parking an enclosed utility trailer in front of a house for an extended length of time. If that’s the case, that may also not be the best first foot forward with the neighbors.
- Check with your insurance company to see if your belongings are covered while in a cargo utility trailer. You may have to convince your insurance firm of the need to store goods this way.
- Make sure the cargo trailer or utility trailer is tightly sealed. Working with Trailers Plus, you’re guaranteed of no leaks because of our utility trailers’ solid steel frame construction, with no wood or pop rivets. However, in areas of extreme heat and moisture, it may make sense to line the inside of the trailer with a liner to protect against mildew.
- Use a lock on the trailer for safety. You may also consider backing the trailer up against the new residence for safer keeping of your goods.
Whatever your hauling needs are, we’ll have it for you at TrailersPlus.
