Are you planning a move soon? Do you have summer lawn projects that will require hauling mulch or large plants? Are you looking to take your ATV on a camping trip? The truth is, there are endless reasons you might find yourself in need of a trailer, and your friends at Empire Rent A Car are here to help. With multiple trailer rental options to choose from, we have the right trailer to meet your needs – no matter what they are. However, because not everyone is used to hauling a trailer, we’ve put together a list of tips to help get you on your way.

Trailer Rental Tips

1. Practice Makes Perfect

Whether you’ve driven a utility trailer a thousand times or it’s your first time, it’s important to log some practice time with your rental trailer before taking it on the road. Go to your nearest box store parking lot after hours, and set up some cones. It will save you some embarrassment and costly repair costs if you make your mistakes in an empty parking lot!

2. Be Prepared

We rent quality, well-maintained trailers; however, things happen out on the road and it’s best to be prepared. Be sure to always have at least one spare tire, a decent jack, and a four-way lug wrench. Hopefully, you’ll never need to use any of them, but keeping these three items on hand is a cheap insurance policy that you’d be wise to have.

3. Rent Wisely

At Empire Rent A Car, our trailers are available in different sizes for both home and commercial use, and are extremely convenient. More importantly, they’re also affordable. In fact, unlike many other companies, we don’t charge you by the mile for our trailers. You simply pay a base rate according to the length of time you need it, so you can take it wherever you want without paying expensive mileage fees. Finally, be sure to check out our specials to help you save even more.
