Looking for car transporters’ trailers for sale

You may need to look for a car transport trailer for sale for a couple of main reasons. Firstly, if you own a professional transportation company and need to add some carriers to your fleet. Also, some people are interested in checking car transporter trailer sales because they are using this service a lot of times and consider the opportunity to possess their own trailer.

We live in the Internet era, when pretty much everything can be done online. There are a great number of websites where you can look for sale of the car transporter trailer of your choice.

If you are not very familiar with the industry, here we will give you some main tips to make the whole process easier and faster.

Types of the car transport trailers on sale

First of all, they differ in regards to the number of the cars that can fit them. Thus, if we are considering a car trailer transporter for sale within individuals, in an overwhelming majority of cases they need a single-car trailer that will allow them to place a standard passenger’s car or even some motorized vehicle. For the transportation companies a better choice will be a variant for multiple cars, and in most cases, we can see a capacity up to 6 cars for such car transporter trailers for sale. Here we are talking about a so-called enclosed transportation method when the car (or several cars) will be fully protected and covered. If you possess an expensive and valuable vehicle or if your transportation company specializes in handling the rare and exotic cars, it’s a very useful option.

Another option is purchasing an open platform with two decks. It’s a less secure construction (at least, the vehicles you are transporting will not be protected from various weather conditions like rain and snow) but the price for them is much more attractive. Moreover, you can also choose some particular details of such transporters. For example, the material of the decks plays an important role in the lifetime and the comfort of usage of the car transporter trailer you found on sale. Wooden decks are cheaper and more familiar for us, but they have some essential disadvantages like shorter guarantee and complexity in washing. Metal constructions are becoming more and more popular as they provide you with a firm and reliable basis for the vehicles to transport. If your budget is not that limited (metal decks are considered as the medium-cost option) you can easily make a choice in regards to the aluminum version. The main benefits here is that the whole construction is much lighter and easier to handle.

When considering different car transporting trailers for sale, you can mention that some of them have very specific features. And one of the most popular and attractive one is a fold-down rear door. This additional part of the transporter has two main benefits to enjoy:

  •  firstly, you can use the fold-down rear door as a ramp. Obviously, you will need to somehow load and unload the car or any other vehicle onto the trailer, and it will be much easier and faster to arrange when using this easy mechanism;
  •  secondly, such a fold-down rear door will become a great additional protection for the trailer from the back. Nowadays, accidents are not that rare, unfortunately, and it’s much better to be fully protected from any circumstances and aftermath.

Considering particular examples

Among the most common brands of the transporter trailers we can name Mercedes-Benz, Meyer, Sonstige, Humbaur, Boro, Pongratz, Brenderup, Eduard and some others.

When checking a particular offer, you need to pay attention not only to the brand name, but also to some important details if you want to get a better deal.

Of course, nobody can’t ignore the price. Luckily, nowadays you don’t even need to do a long research to find out the average price on the market. You can use one of the online-platforms where the system itself compares the offer of a particular seller with the average price on the market and provides you with the information if the price here is good or too high. Of course, you still can make your own investigations before making a purchase, but at least you will have some basic information without any effort from your side.

Some small but essential features should also be considered. For example, if there is a delivery option available, especially if we are talking about the transportation of the trailer from another state. By the way, you can also check the original location of the offer and to select the one that is nearer to you.

Online consulting and online contracts will allow you to make the deal without leaving your home or office. But as with any traditional contract, it’s your responsibility to carefully go through all the details and, in case of some wondering or worries, to double check the issue with the seller.

Pictures therefore are one of the most important and effective tools you have to make a right choice. You can also request some additional photos of the part or the side you are interested in. Poor quality 2-3 pictures can become a sign of the unreliable seller.

Of course, the year and model of the trailer should be provided in the description. Also, you should be provided with the more detailed information about the vehicle’s cargo space length and width as it’s one of the main features for the purchase. Gross weight and maximum payload will provide you with the capacity of the particular trailer and will help you to make a right choice. Finally, some additional and more detailed description from the seller will be a great bonus, especially if there are some specific features and details.

You need to carefully check the mileage and to compare it to the real picture upon delivery of the trailer. It’s the only time you can claim any inconsistency to the seller.

For your convenience on some websites, you can find not only the information provided by the seller but also the details that are missing and later to require it from the seller. Through the contact details you can always approach any particular seller.

Any deal of purchasing may have its specific features. If you are not sure in the details of the deal or in the contract’s paragraphs, you can always get a consultation with appropriate professionals. For example, using some online-platforms, you can contact the representative directly and ask any questions you may have.
