Secure your cargo with a cage trailer
We've all had to transport precious or loose cargo that needs proper securing. Thankfully, cage trailers offer a great solution. Whatever you need a trailer for, whether it's to transport your fishing gear to the lake at the weekends, or heading to the tip after a clearout at home, it's essential to choose the right piece of kit. You can find a great selection of cage trailers on eBay.
Cage or box trailer
A cage trailer is a must-have if you're carrying lots of loose bits. You'll see refuse collectors using trailers like this, as it allows them to throw everything in over the top, keeping clearing up quick and simple. Cage trailers are also ideal if you've got a range of items to transport that can handle being exposed to the elements on the journey, allowing you to stack things up and move as much as possible in one trip.
A box trailer has low sides so if you're carrying anything tall, or light and loose, it needs to be well secured. For large items like lawnmowers, go karts, or quad bikes, a box trailer is perfect as you have access from all sides to easily manoeuvre the load into place on the flat bed.
Car, bike, and boat trailers, and all-purpose trailers are available in single axle and tandem designs. The latter styles are usually found on larger trailers to aid stability.
Things to look for when buying a trailer
You can find a whole range of cage trailers and box trailers here on eBay. If you're looking for toughness, heavy duty frames made of galvanised steel fit the bill. If buying a used trailer, then make sure the tyres are in a good condition with a spare included, if possible. Check that the suspension is in good working order, so your precious cargo doesn't get thrown around, and make sure there are suitable attachments for your car's tow bar.
