From security and control to cost savings and easy access, storage trailers bring many benefits to the average user. Storage trailers act as accessible loading docks featuring either roll-up or swing doors. Some have pallet jacks or forklifts to make access easier. Usually made out of aluminum or steel, storage trailers are durable, strong, and built to last. They can even put up with the harsh elements during transport as well as when sitting in place.

You can do a lot with your storage trailer. You can store your lawn care equipment in it, your pool equipment, cargo, seasonal products…you name it, you can store it. Businesses in particular can reduce their operating costs with affordable rented storage trailers on or off site.

Here are some more benefits of using storage trailers for business purposes in particular:

1. Onsite Storage

You can store your necessary and immediate items onsite, whether that’s office supplies, landscaping equipment, or roofing supplies. This allows you to ensure your expensive items are kept safe on the property and away from the watchful eyes of burglars. And by having those items on site, you can get easier access to it when needed rather than having to haul your equipment from a storage unit to your job site every day.

2. Cost Savings

The monthly rental costs to maintain an offsite storage unit are very high. It’s more affordable to rent a storage trailer, or even buy it outright if you have long-term needs and the extra capital for the investment. This will save you money over the long haul. A storage trailer can also be moved as needed, as opposed to an offsite storage unit where you would have to spend money on gas and transportation to get back and forth.

3. Easier Access

Storage trailers are easier to access because they are stand-alone units as opposed to large facilities with many stairs, floors and units to navigate. Simply walk right up to your storage trailer, open the door and retrieve your items.

4. Wind and Watertight Features

Waterproof storage is key when you want to be sure you’re safeguarding your items against inclement weather. To that end, storage trailers are wind and watertight, giving you peace of mind.

5. Security and Control

When you have a storage trailer onsite, it’s much easier to manage and secure all of your equipment. Plus, you hold control over operation of the unit and its placement, without fretting over limitations and restrictions. There are many security feature add-ons you can incorporate, such as locks, cameras, and CCTV systems.

Frequently Asked Questions About Storage Trailers

How many boxes can a 5×8 trailer hold?

The number of boxes a 5×8 trailer can hold depends on the size and shape of the boxes. On average, for standard medium-sized moving boxes (18″x14″x12″), a 5×8 trailer can hold approximately 160-180 boxes. However, optimal packing and the use of various box sizes can change this number.

Are enclosed trailers good for storage?

Yes, enclosed trailers are excellent for storage. They offer protection from the elements, can be locked for security, and provide a mobile storage solution. Ventilation is crucial if your trailer will be closed for extended periods to prevent condensation and mold.

How much does a 5×8 trailer weigh?

The weight of a 5×8 trailer varies by its construction material and design. On average, an empty 5×8 utility trailer weighs between 900 to 1,200 pounds. Enclosed trailers, due to the additional material, often weigh more.

What are the top brands of enclosed trailers?

Several reputable brands manufacture enclosed trailers. Always research specific needs and read reviews before making a purchase.

What is the best time of year to buy an enclosed trailer?

The best time to buy an enclosed trailer is often during off-peak seasons—typically late fall and winter. Demand often decreases during these times, and dealers might offer discounts to move inventory.

What is the life expectancy of an enclosed trailer?

The life expectancy of an enclosed trailer largely depends on its build quality, usage, and maintenance. On average, with regular care and moderate use, an enclosed trailer can last between 10 to 20 years.

High-quality trailers and those kept in optimal conditions can exceed this range. Regular inspections and preventative maintenance are key to maximizing their lifespan.
