However, with careful consideration and understanding of the key factors involved, you can make a well-informed decision that meets your specific needs. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of buying a semi-trailer step by step.

1. Define Your Requirements

Before diving into the market, take the time to clearly define your requirements. Consider factors such as the type of cargo you’ll be transporting, the distance of your typical hauls, and any specific features or capabilities you need from the trailer.

  • Cargo Type: Different trailers are designed to accommodate different types of cargo. Determine whether you need a dry van, flatbed, refrigerated trailer, tanker, or another specialized type.
  • Size and Capacity: Assess the volume and weight of your typical loads to determine the appropriate size and load capacity for your trailer.
  • Special Features: Identify any special features you require, such as temperature control for perishable goods, trailer height for hauling tall loads, or ramps for hauling equipment.

2. Research Trailer Manufacturers and Suppliers

Once you’ve defined your requirements, research reputable trailer manufacturers and suppliers. Look for companies with a track record of producing high-quality trailers and providing reliable customer service.

  • Product Quality: Evaluate the quality of the trailers offered by each manufacturer. Consider factors such as construction materials, durability, and overall craftsmanship.
  • Customer Reviews: Seek out reviews and testimonials from other buyers to gauge the reputation of each manufacturer or supplier.
  • Price and Value: Compare pricing and value propositions from different suppliers. Keep in mind that while cost is important, it should be balanced with the quality and features of the trailer.

3. Consider New vs. Used Trailers

Decide whether you want to purchase a new or used trailer based on your budget and preferences. Each option has its own set of advantages and considerations.

  • New Trailers: New trailers offer the latest features, technology, and warranties. While they typically come with a higher price tag, they may provide better long-term value and reliability.
  • Used Trailers: Used trailers are often more affordable upfront and can be a cost-effective option for businesses on a tighter budget. However, carefully inspect used trailers for signs of wear and damage, and consider any potential maintenance or repair costs.

4. Inspect

Before finalizing your purchase, thoroughly inspect the trailer to ensure it meets your expectations and specifications.

  • Physical Inspection: Check the trailer for any signs of damage, corrosion, or structural issues. Pay close attention to the frame, axles, tires, brakes, and electrical system.

5. Finalize the Purchase

Once you’re satisfied with the trailer and ready to move forward, finalize the purchase by completing the necessary paperwork and arranging for delivery or pickup.

  • Negotiate Terms: Negotiate the terms of the sale, including pricing, financing options, warranties, and delivery arrangements.
  • Legal and Regulatory Compliance: Ensure that the trailer complies with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements in your jurisdiction, including registration, insurance, and safety standards.
  • Delivery and Installation: Coordinate the delivery or pickup of the trailer.

6. Maintain and Insure Your Trailer

After purchasing your semi-trailer, prioritize ongoing maintenance and insurance to protect your investment and ensure safe and reliable operation.

  • Regular Maintenance: Establish a routine maintenance schedule to inspect and service your trailer regularly. This includes tasks such as tire checks, brake inspections, lubrication, and cleaning.
  • Insurance Coverage: Obtain comprehensive insurance coverage for your trailer to protect against potential risks such as accidents, theft, and damage.

Top 7 Tips For Towing A Gooseneck Trailer

Published By:

Gooseneck trailers from Area Trailer Sales and Rentals can be the perfect trailer for your hauling needs.  While many people claim that towing a gooseneck trailer is actually easier than a bumper hitch trailer, there are a few tips to consider before getting on the road.  Area Trailer Sales and Rentals has several gooseneck trailers to choose from and will be glad to help you make the right choice for your hauling needs. Below are are just a few variables you need to consider when towing a gooseneck trailer. Always do your research, follow state laws and plan ahead. If you have any questions, be sure to ask the friendly folks at Area Trailer Sales and Rentals.

Make sure you have the proper tow vehicle for your gooseneck trailer

This may be obvious, but in order to tow a gooseneck trailer you must have the appropriate vehicle to tow it. Make sure the vehicle you use to tow your trailer is customized to fit your towing needs. It is always a good idea to make sure your tow vehicle is large enough to have the brakes and suspension it takes to safely tow your trailer. You can get this information from trailer, truck or automobile manufacturers.

Ensure your vehicle and trailer brakes are sufficient to safely stop the tow vehicle and the load

The brakes are a very important factor when towing a gooseneck trailer. You can never have too much brake. It can possibly cause a disaster if your brakes fail while going down a hill. Disk brakes are better than drum brakes. Having four electric brakes is better than having two.

Don’t slam on the brakes, just slowly apply more pressure to shorten your stopping distance. Don’t ride the brakes downhill because this can cause them to overheat.

Make sure the hitch on the tow vehicle will work with the gooseneck trailer

Before towing your trailer, it always a good to have your hitch inspected by a qualified hitch installation company. The maximum tongue weight is usually 10 percent of the hitch’s rated capacity. The hitch is rated by its towing capacity and the tongue weight.

Verify trailer lights and connections

In order to be legal and safe all your lights must work properly. The connector is the weakest link. To make sure all your lights and signals are working have an observer confirm this every time you hook your trailer up.

Check trailer tires and wheel bearings frequently

Be sure to have your tires checked frequently to avoid having a flat. Checking the tire pressure of each tire should be done before each trip you make. Always check the wheel bearings and lug nut torque before towing. The wheels on trailers are subject to high twisting side loads during tight and slow turns. Over time, this can cause the wheel to flex and lug nuts to loosen. A torque wrench will come in handy for this.  Pay close attention when backing a gooseneck trailer to avoid extreme jackknifing that might cause excessive side loading on the tires resulting in extreme wear..

Ensure the gooseneck trailer is properly loaded

Always tie big and heavy items down securely when towing. Tying items properly down at several angles, rather than straight down, will keep them from falling over in abrupt changes in speed or direction. Once you have the heavy items in place, use a scale to check the tongue weight. Make changes as needed. Smaller items should be loaded in order to balance the load out. Your main concern is not to lose the balance of the trailer.

Trailer Rental Or Purchase -Should You Buy Or Rent

Published By:

Buy a trailer or trailer rental. It is one of the most challenging questions every business must answer when the time comes to add a trailer to the fleet. Each offers advantages that must be weighed against the disadvantages so that the right answer is a balanced answer that meets the business’ needs. Nationwide, roughly 60% of companies own their fleets while the remaining 40% lease a significant portion of their fleets.

Trailer rental or purchase versus time of need

Among the considerations that should be factored into the equation are the length of time that you plan to use the trailer, the status of your existing fleet and facilities, your business’ credit worthiness and cash flow, and your ability to manage and maintain the trailer.

Trailer rental or purchase versus maintenance

Leasing is a good option if you don’t have an in-house crew of technicians who can service and maintain the trailer. Leases typically come with service contracts that cover these needs. Leasing can also be less expensive than purchasing the trailer which means that it has a significantly lower impact on the monthly bottom line. A lease also means that you can list the lease as a monthly expense on your budget rather than as an asset which offers considerable tax advantages. For businesses that are growing, leasing frees up capital to be used in other areas so that you can service the needs of your clients and use your capital more strategically.

Leasing allows you to upgrade your fleet quickly and easily when technology advances. This keeps your fleet at the head of the pack when it comes to improvements in trailer technology. It also makes it a breeze to manage the fleet’s age and the ever evolving needs of your clients and the industry as a whole. In fact, it’s one of the easiest ways to stay on top of regulatory changes as they roll down the road.

Trailer rental or purchase versus business advantages

Of course, there are also many advantages to purchasing a trailer. In particular, the tax advantages add up quickly including the amounts you can deduct for depreciation and interest. Further, when you buy a trailer, you build your business’ credit which makes it easier to secure financing in the future. You also add the asset to your books and down the road you can use the asset as a trade to upgrade your fleet as your needs evolve and change. However, since you own the trailer, it means that you are responsible for all the service and maintenance. Thus, it’s an option you should choose only if you have access to a qualified team of mechanics who can service and maintain the trailer throughout the long-hauls ahead.

Buying is a solid option if you have an established business and the needs of your clients are unlikely to change over time. It gives you a reliable, cost-effective fleet of trailers that you can use to cover existing routes for clients that are with you for the long-haul. It’s also a good option for companies that have solid in-house teams or relationships with service facilities for maintenance.

Texas Requirements for Trailer Inspection And Registration

Published By:

The State of Texas has a significant number of rules and requirements for trailers that travel down the state’s roads. For example, registration is required for all non-farm trailers that operate on public roads. This includes trailers that are built by trailer manufacturers or those that are built by hand at home. It is important for vehicle owners to know the rules for trailer inspection and registration and adhere to them in order to avoid fines and penalties for failing to abide by them.

Manufactured Trailer Inspection And Registration Requirements

Manufactured trailers with a gross weight that exceeds 4,000 pounds must be titled in order to be registered. In order to be titled, the individual must provide the manufacturer’s certificate of origin on new trailers. For used trailers with a gross weight over 4,000 pounds, a certificate of title is sufficient, and for used trailers under 4,000 pounds, a bill of sale plus the registration receipt is sufficient.

Trailers that have a gross weight that exceeds 4,500 pounds must pass an annual safety inspection. These inspections may require the owner to provide photographs of the trailer and to provide a weight certificate with their paperwork.

Homemade Trailer Inspection And Registration Requirements

Homemade trailers that have a gross weight in excess of 4,000 pounds must title their trailer. Individuals must provide proof of ownership. New trailers must be registered using form VTR-141.

Used trailers with a gross weight in excess of 4,000 pounds must have a certificate of title, and used trailers with a weight below or equal to 4,000 pounds must have a Bill of Sale plus the registration receipt. These can be submitted with Form 130-U.

The State of Texas does not require individuals to secure a Vehicle Identification Number on their homemade trailers unless they need to be titled. However, the state does advise trailer owners to get a VIN number because it can help with recovery in the event the trailer is stolen.

As with manufactured trailers, homemade trailers with a gross weight in excess of 4,500 pounds are required to pass an annual safety inspection, provide photographs, and secure a weight certificate certifying the trailer’s weight and capacity.

Farm Trailer Inspection And Registration Requirements

Farmers and ranchers in Texas that use their trailers to transport livestock, timber, or farm products qualify for farm registration. Farmers are not required to register these farm trailers or semi-trailers that have a gross weight that is equal to or less than 4,000 pounds. If the trailer exceeds this weight and is less than 34,000 pounds, farmers or ranchers can secure a farm trailer license.

In addition to carrying farm products, the trailer may be used to transport family members, farm employees, and materials used for farming purposes. However, under no circumstances may farmers or ranchers use the vehicle to secure or pursue gainful employment or payment for any non-farming or non-ranching purposes.

The fee is minimal for farm trailers and is currently $5 per year. Trailers with a farm license plate are exempt from the requirements of state inspection certificates. Individuals wishing to secure farm license plates for their trailer are required to submit form VTR-52A.
