Are you unsure about what a dry van trailer has to offer and if your shipping needs to utilize this style of trailer? At Mount Trailer Company, we wanted to provide a quick guide about dry van trailers, the benefits they bring, and some buying options you have.
So, to help, here is everything you need to know about dry vans…
When is a dry van used?
When looking to transport oversized cargo – like cars, big machines, etc. – and large quantities of freight, a dry van trailer would be the best choice. You’ve probably seen a semi-truck with a dry van trailer attached while on the highway, as they are prevalent.
They are called dry vans because they keep their cargo dry and protected from the elements, and they keep the load from spilling out.
Are there different types of dry vans?
Depending on the business or transportation/logistical company, the size of a dry van trailer can differ. Some maybe 26 feet, while others can be as long as almost 53 feet. As mentioned, their size can also depend on the cargo they are hauling.
Buying a used dry van
Often, buying a new dry van trailer can be extremely expensive and daunting for smaller types of businesses. Luckily, used dry van trailers are more affordable and offer fantastic reliability and function.
At Mount Trailer Company, we offer used dry vans that have undergone rigorous multi-point inspections that include suspension, landing legs, brakes, flooring, roofing, and more. Our used trailers are also DOT inspected and have gone through FMCSA Annual Inspection to ensure they are safe and ready to go.
