Car transport trailers
Used car transport trailers come in many sizes and shapes. There is a wide choice in trailers for one car or multiple cars up to six vehicles. For transporting just one car, which could be a passengers vehicle or a large motorised vehicle such as a tractor, or for transporting cars on two decks there are several options. For an average trailer buyer, an open bed car transport trailer will most likely suffice. It is a low-cost trailer with multiple functionalities.
Types of decks
Wooden decks that have been treated can be used for different jobs. However, it is more difficult to clean wooden decks. Metal decks handle machines and cars quite well and are easier to clean, but more costly. A third option when choosing a used car transport trailer is an aluminum version. These are more expensive than wooden decks and metal decks, but also lighter and therefore fuel-saving.
Fold-down rear door
Many car transport trailers are equipped with a fold-down rear door. There are two benefits to this system: first, the transport has an extra protection at the back. And secondly, the fold-down rear door can also function as a ramp for the car during loading and unloading. An enclosed car transport trailer makes it easier to transport vehicles under heavy weather conditions and is also an ideal means of transport for more expensive cars. For short distances, an open bed car transport trailer does the job.
