Buying a trailer is something you won’t regret. We get it: it’s a big decision and it involves a decent amount of cash, but you can rest assured that it’s something you’ll get years of benefit from.
Open; enclosed; flat top; tippers… a trip along the freeway is enough to tell you that trailers come in a huge range of sizes and styles. For the first-time buyer, this can be rather confusing. That’s why we’ve taken the time to list out the basic trailer sizes and some of their uses. Remember to consider the weight you wish to carry. Trailer carrying capacity is often measured as ATM or Aggregate Trailer Mass. That is the maximum recommended weight of the trailer and your load when combined.

Most U Beaut trailers come with a cage which allows you to really stack up those tree branches are safely move a fridge or bed mattress. Many of the single axle trailers from U Beaut are also tipper trailers which makes dumping soil, wood chips or tan bark really easy.

We all know that having the right tools/accessories makes a job much
easier. And trailers are no exception to the rule.
Before you make your purchase, take time to think about what you want to
get out of your trailer. Consider future tasks you may wish to accomplish
with your trailer, as well as those immediately at hand. In the long run,
buying those added extras at the time might save you a lot of hassle and a
pretty penny, too.
Cage trailers have many and varied uses. Whether you’re carting high
loads, moving rubbish or transporting stock, the extra security and height
afforded by a cage is invaluable. Cages are hot-dipped galvanized and can
be easily removed.
If you’re transporting cars, motorbikes, lawnmowers or any other wheeled
equipment on your trailer, loading ramps are a must. U Beaut Trailers sells
