10 Ideas for Using Enclosed Cargo Trailers
From Landscaping to Mobile Businesses
A cargo trailer is for hauling, well, cargo, right? Yes, but enclosed cargo trailers can transport all kinds of stuff, for work and play, business, and your home. And, they don’t even have to be on the road to be useful. We’ve put together a list of all the ways you can benefit from owning a cargo trailer to ensure you get the most out of your ownership experience.
- Landscaping –Professional landscapers and homeowners alike love a good enclosed cargo trailer. Why? Because they can haul and store everything from rakes and leaf blowers to mowers and wheelbarrows. Plus, they’re easy to clean and stand up to the tough elements you’ll be dealing with day in and day out.
- Hobby space –No spare room? No problem. Park a cargo trailer on your property, outfit it with a worktable and shelving, and you have a tool shed, sewing space, model-building area, or music studio. With the amount of customization and upgrading you can perform on a Formula trailer, you’ll be master of your hobby in no time.
- Mobile business –Businesses that bring their service to their customers, instead of the other way around, are very popular now. Mobile boutiques, auto detailing, junk removal, plant care, and many other types of services can be run from a cargo trailer. With the many trailer sizes out there (and axle types), there’s no limit to the ways you can customize your enclosed trailer to accommodate any number of mobile business ideas.
- Mobile office –Are you a writer, a tech worker, or someone else who works from home? Your home office can be anywhere if you travel with a cargo trailer in tow. Take it to the beach, the woods, or anywhere you can pick up Wi-Fi, and you’re ready for a change of scenery any time you’d like.
- Storage –Here’s another way a cargo trailer can serve as an extra room. Whether you need a place to store your stuff between moves of your business or residence—or any other reason you may need extra storage space, an enclosed trailer can save the day.
- Contractor/equipment –Electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and other types of contractors appreciate that they can not only haul all their tools and supplies in an enclosed trailer, but use them as a makeshift shop, as well.
- Moving –For anyone who moves furniture, appliances, and housewares frequently, a cargo trailer is a life saver. Not to mention, the convenience (and excuse to tag along) an enclosed trailer provides when one of your kids moves off to college.
- Recreation –Heading to the great outdoors for some rugged fun or just need a reliable hauler to take all your sporting gear from one field to the next? An enclosed cargo trailer will carry your dirt bikes, cumbersome equipment, snowmobiles, ATVs, and more.
- Camping –When you want to stay away from glamping, but also have some essentials on-hand when you’re away from it all, then it’s time to take your cargo trailer camping. Use it to transport your tent, supplies, and gear, or go all out and outfit it with a place for cleanup and storage for kayaks, snowshoes, and more.
- Haul cargo – It’s no surprise that a cargo trailer can haul cargo, but maybe you didn’t think your business needed one. The advantage of having an enclosed trailer—as opposed to transporting products or materials in a box truck or van—is that you can leave the “cargo” part behind—at the office or job site—when you need to use your vehicle for personal business or pleasure.
So, what is a cargo trailer? It’s anything you want it to be, and more. Formula Trailers’ durable, versatile trailers can handle a multitude of uses, from light to heavy duty.
