Who Uses Dry Van Trailers for Shipping?

Dry Van Trailer Cargo Shipping with
Heavy Haulers

Van trailers are useful for a variety of shipments, from moving the contents of your home to moving oddly shaped cargo for many different industries. Van trailers are preferred for many shippers, as the van itself keeps the cargo dry and protected from the elements. Dry van trailers can handle large quantities of goods, delicate products, and even larger items like autos or motorcycles. If you notice a trailer behind a semi-truck, there's a good chance it's a dry van trailer; the name is derived from the trailer's ability to keep the cargo "dry."

Dry van trailers can come in different sizes to accommodate different industries' loads. The two most common sizes are 53', which is the maximum length for a dry van trailer, and a "pup" van trailer, generally 26' to 29' long. Van trailers can be crafted from galvanized steel, aluminum, hardwood or iron. Using the dry van shipping services from Heavy Haulers can help you move your goods across the country or transport oddly shaped items. Many van trailers come equipped with blankets, to protect furniture and the like from chipping or being damaged in transit.

What You Need to Know About Transporting Dry Van Trailers

Since enclosed trailers load and unload from the back, often dry van trailers are backed up to a loading dock that is the same height as the dock platform. This allows for easier loading and unloading with the use of pallet jacks and forklifts. If there is no loading dock to utilize, a forklift can rise to the height of the trailer. In cases where neither a loading dock or forklift is available, many dry van trailers have a lift gate to facilitate loading and unloading. The lift gate lets the load from the trailer deck be lowered to the ground, using a motorized deck. Versatility helps make the dry van trailer the most common trailer type on the road in America. When you need to haul a dry van trailer, Heavy Haulers is ready to provide premium dry van trailer shipping in all 50 states.
