Most Profitable Way to Use Your Trailer

Most Profitable Way to Use Your Trailer

You knew trailers could be fun, but they can also be profitable. If you’re already mowing lawns and raking leaves around your town, you know this, but there are other options for your trailer you may not have thought of. 

First of all, your options all depend on the type of trailer you have, and making sure your trailer is in tip-top condition and ready to work. 

Rent Out Dump Trailers to Contractors for Material Delivery for Profit

Do you own a dump trailer? It can make you money even if you’re not the one doing the hauling. Rent out your dump trailer to local contractors or even larger construction companies so they can deliver gravel, mulch, cement, dirt, or take trash and rubble away from the site. You might be the exact assist they need to complete a project on deadline. Call local contractors, landscaping, and construction companies of all kinds to let them know your dump trailer is an available option. You might come in clutch for some hardworking contractors pressed for time. 

Deliver Appliances and Similar-Sized Items with Your Utility Trailer for Extra Cash

Simply go to any online shopping platform that needs delivery options, and start reaching out to sellers. Filter your search results by appropriate cargo. Most of the time, all you need is a couple of ratchet straps to stabilize a wide variety of hauls on a utility trailer. Post your delivery services on those same forums so that people who want to offer delivery but don’t have the trailer to do it know where to go. 

Hotshotting With Your Utility Trailer Can Earn you More Money

Consider hotshotting if you’re trying to earn more money with your trailer. What is hotshotting? It’s when you do a time-sensitive highly specific delivery for a single customer. Any Less Than Truckload (LTL) delivery is a profitable opportunity if you’re interested in this option. What you’re doing here is taking jobs that are too small for trucking companies to take, or at least without added fees. This is a great niche that might offer tons of opportunities simply by being unfamiliar to many people. 

The Limits Are Your Own Creativity

Once you decide you want your trailer to be more profitable for you, simply write that intention down in a note on your phone, or a piece of paper in your cup holder. That lets your subconscious work even when you're occupied with other things. You might get a brilliant idea at a red light or in the middle of a traffic jam.
