How To Prepare For Trailer Transport
Clean the Trailer: Give your trailer a thorough cleaning to remove dirt, debris, and any loose items. This not only makes it easier to inspect but also prevents dirt from damaging sensitive areas during transport.
Inspect for Damage: Inspect the trailer for any existing damage. Document this with photographs from different angles. This will serve as evidence if any new damage occurs during transport.
Remove Personal Items: Empty the trailer of any personal belongings, tools, or items that could move around during transport. This prevents damage to your belongings and ensures the weight of the trailer is accurately calculated.
Secure Loose Items: If there are any removable parts or loose items, secure them properly. This includes securing ramps, hitches, and other detachable components.
Check Tire Pressure: Ensure the trailer’s tires are properly inflated to the recommended pressure. Properly inflated tires contribute to a smoother and safer transport.
Secure Moving Parts: If your trailer has moving parts like doors or ramps, secure them tightly to prevent them from opening during transit.
Disconnect Utilities: If your trailer has any utilities such as water, gas, or electricity, make sure they are disconnected and properly shut off.
Lock or Secure Doors: Lock doors if applicable, or secure them with additional measures to prevent them from opening accidentally during transport.
Protect Vulnerable Areas: For enclosed trailers, consider using protective covers on vulnerable areas to prevent scratches or damage during loading and transport.
Fold and Secure Parts: If your trailer has foldable parts such as awnings or extensions, fold them securely and lock them in place.
Secure Trailer on Towing Vehicle: If you’re using a towing vehicle, ensure that the trailer is properly hitched and secured according to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Provide Necessary Documentation: Prepare all necessary documents for the transport, including registration, insurance, and any special permits required for the journey.

Review Transport Guidelines: If you’re working with a transport company, review any guidelines they provide for preparing trailers for transport. They may have specific requirements.
Communicate with Transporter: Discuss any specific concerns or instructions with the transport provider. They can provide guidance on how to best prepare your trailer for transport.
