Heavy Equipment Trailer Rental in Oneonta
The proper add-ons are just as important as the right heavy equipment vehicle. Too much, and you’re paying for frivolous extras. Too little, and the vehicle might as well not be at your job site. These add-ons include the transmission type, vehicle design, operational ease, “creature comforts” like padded seats, and the trailer. Most of our customers need lightweight, stable trailers that don’t affect towing capacity yet don’t tip over or make the vehicle too tricky to operate. More on that below.
Such trailers are few and far between, but we have them available today at Oneonta Equipment Rental & Sales. In fact, add-ons are our specialty. They set us apart from the other heavy equipment rental companies in upstate New York. Our customers find add-ons in the products we lease and the service we provide. While other companies offer cheap products and cut-rate service to make an easy dollar, we focus on building long-term relationships with our valued clients.
What to Look for in an Equipment Trailer
We mentioned weight and stability above. These two qualities might be the most essential qualities to look for in a trailer.
Many manufacturers increase the trailer’s weight to increase its stability. The added weight comes in bits and pieces, like higher sides or thicker tires. Most people push their tractors and other heavy vehicles to the limit. A little extra weight on the trailer itself puts too much strain on the engine and compromises performance.
Finding the right trailer requires more than a visual inspection because they aren’t all made alike. Before you buy or rent a trailer, look beyond the price tag and ask the sales associate some questions, like:
- The manufacturer’s background,
- Materials in the trailer,
- Trailer’s designed use, and
- The trailer’s use history.
If the sales associate cannot quickly and accurately answer these questions, immediately go to another heavy equipment dealer.
