5 Ways a Custom Utility Trailer May Come in Handy

Landscape trailers are trailers with raised sides. They typically have no top but a ramp in the back, but these may be available options when you customize your trailer. They are among the simplest trailers, which makes them among the most versatile. Another name for a landscape trailer is a utility trailer, and once you find out about the many ways that they can come in handy for personal as well as professional applications, you may decide that you can’t live without one.

1. Cleanup of Trash or Debris

Maybe cleaning up trash or debris is something that you need to do frequently as part of your business, or maybe it is something that you have to do seasonally on your residential property. In either case, a utility trailer can make it much easier to clear away. It is easy to load the material onto the trailer and then haul it to the dump or wherever you need to take it. The raised sides help to contain the material and make it easier to tie ropes or tarps or whatever else you need to secure it. A rear ramp also makes it easier to unload the material once it reaches its new destination.

2. Transportation of Lawn Care or Other Power Equipment

When it comes to lawn care, your utility trailer can do more than haul away trash and debris. It can also help you with maintenance by allowing you to transport large pieces of power equipment, such as lawnmowers. This may be necessary if you run a lawn care or landscaping business and have to travel to many different properties, but it can also be helpful if your residence sits on an acreage or you own several different pieces of property.

3. Moving Furniture

If you move frequently, hiring a moving truck to transport all your possessions can get expensive. It may save you money, in the long run, to buy a utility trailer for moving purposes. Even if you do not move often yourself, you can help out friends or family members when they have to move. 

4. Hauling Construction Materials

You may be able to save a lot of money by handling home repair and remodelling jobs yourself. However, the construction materials can be heavy, big, and bulky and are difficult to transport home in a standard passenger vehicle. A utility trailer allows you to haul what you need home quickly and easily, often in only one trip.

5. Carrying ATVs and Other Power Sports Equipment

While landscape trailers are very good at making chores easier for you, they need not only be used for work. A utility trailer can also make your hobbies more fun. You often cannot ride small power sports vehicles, such as side-by-sides, ATVs, or dirt bikes, on regular roads, and even when you can, it might not be good for them if you do so. A utility trailer makes it easier for you to transport vehicles such as these to the place where you can ride them, protecting them from damage along the way. This allows you to relax during the trip and enjoy riding once you arrive at your destination.

Millroad Sells Customized Landscape Trailers

These are all possible uses for a utility trailer. If you have a specific purpose in mind, you can customize the trailer so that you know it will fit your needs. We offer many customization options. Building your perfect trailer starts with size, and we can build trailers in lengths ranging from six feet to 20 feet. The length of the trailer then determines what other options, such as width and axles, are available. For example, the largest and smallest trailer lengths limit your width options to one apiece, but if you choose middle-sized lengths, you have more options.
