Quick Guide: Hauling 101 | Trailer Sales | Warren County

Crim’s Trailer Sales in Warren County knows that hauling can be tough, especially if you’re a rookie. Becuase it’s so tough, we want to help our customers get in the groove while they haul. Here are 3 essential tips for having a successful hauling trip!

1. Make Sure Your Trailer is Prepped Well

The best thing you can do before you get out on the road is to prep your trailer well. Make sure to use tie-downs and ropes to secure your cargo on your trailer so nothing flies off! Make sure that you also load your trailer well. You should always put your heavier things at the front of your trailer. Keep 60% of your weight up front. As always, with your trailer manufacturer about the optimal way to load your trailer.

2. Take It Slow

There is absolutely no need to ever speed while you are hauling a load. Stay alert and be sure never to exceed over 55 miles per hour, even if you’re in a rush. if your trailer starts swaying take your foot off the gas pedal, do not speed up or brake. Just let your car ease into a stop. Also, you should always slow down when you are driving downhill.

3. Give Yourself Some Space

Do not crowd other drivers by any means. Make sure that you leave a good amount of distance between yourself and the person in front of you so that you have plenty of time to stop. You should leave 4 to 5 seconds of space between you and the vehicle in front of you. This will give you more time to react if the car in front of you stops suddenly. On top of this make sure that you are hyperaware while you are driving, you never know when you’ll need to react fast.
