If you have a little trailer such as this, but suddenly find yourself in the position to haul larger items consider renting a trailer.
Trailer Boss will facilitate trailer rentals in Olympia, WA and Trailer Rentals in Rochester, WA and other areas in the Northwest.
The mechanics which are always onsite at Trailer Boss locations can help you choose and install the correct hitch for your trailer and the tow vehicle. The hitch must match the capacity of the trailer and should not be too high or low for towing the trailer. Improper balance between the towing vehicle and trailer could lead to loss of control of the tow vehicle and result in an accident.
When you go to rent a trailer from most locations, you are not getting a technician dedicated to trailer safety. You might just be dealing with a guy who owns storage units and has now added a line of rental trucks and trailers. You need more experience than this if you are going to head out on the road.
You need someone to help you make certain the ball on the hitch is locked and the lights are connected and working properly. The safety chains must also be attached to the tow hitch.
