What is the Best Type of Moving Trailer for Moving House?

When it comes to moving house, selecting the right moving trailer is crucial for a smooth and efficient transition. The best type of moving trailer largely depends on several factors, including the distance of your move, the volume and size of your items, and the terrain of your travel route. At Trailer2You, we understand that every move is unique, and we offer a variety of trailers to meet your specific needs.

Interstate Moves: Versatility and Capacity

For those planning an interstate move, it’s essential to consider a combination of trailers to accommodate different belongings. A removal van is typically the backbone of such moves, ideal for transporting the bulk of your household items. However, a car trailer is indispensable for moving vehicles. A cage trailer offers the flexibility and security needed for oddly shaped items, pets, and farm animals. Lastly, an enclosed trailer provides protection and ample space for miscellaneous items like garden tools and lawnmowers, ensuring nothing is left behind.

Short Distance Moves: Efficiency and Staging

Moving over shorter distances allows for more flexibility. Many homeowners move their belongings in stages, which can be incredibly efficient. A large enclosed furniture trailer is perfect for big furniture such as couches, refrigerators, and entertainment units. With its drop-down sides and easy loading access, a flat deck trailer can also be advantageous for moving substantial outdoor furniture and other large items.

Starting with the smaller items can be a strategic move. Transporting clothes, shoes, and linens in a small enclosed furniture trailer ensures that these essentials are immediately available at your new home. Similarly, a cage trailer is ideal for outdoor furniture, trampolines, and garden shed items, while a car trailer or flat deck trailer can handle unique items like pianos or ride on mowers. 

The kitchen is always a fiddly part of the home to pack up. A small enclosed furniture trailer is perfect for relocating kitchen appliances, crockery, and utensils. It can also relocate small kitchen furniture such as bar stools, dining chairs, and dining tables.

What is the perfect trailer for moving plants?

How often do you see plants loaded up on an open trailer driving along the freeway and wonder if the plants will be shredded to pieces by the time they reach their destination? While an open cage trailer is fine for large, tall, hardy plants, they are unsuitable for more delicate indoor plants. Depending on the number of plants you have, either a small enclosed furniture trailer or a large enclosed furniture trailer is ideal for relocating indoor plants. Remember, many removal companies will not move plants, so hiring an enclosed moving trailer to move your plants is a great alternative. In very hot weather, it is advisable to move your plants during cooler times of the day.
