We will also inspect your vehicle for good tires and road worthiness for your safety. Please realize that you will be a pulling a minimum of 5000 Lbs up to 12,000 Lbs. We need you to be safe on the road. Please DO NOT exceed 60 MPH on the highway. These Trailers are also equipped with GPS tracking. ALWAYS allow plenty of space with the vehicle in front of you in case you have to stop abruptly.
Tips For You
Before picking up the trailer have your project ready & set for pour, so when you get to the project you can pour right away, then level it off. You are allowed 2.5 to 3 hours of trailer time, any longer may result in a small additional rental fee. Please clean and rinse out the trailer before returning it, if at all possible. If there is an excess of concrete that we have to get rid of or a dirty trailer, there will be a small additional charge. Always ad extra water and keep the trailer spinning on the way back to our yard. If your pour is more than an hour from our location we recommend putting in Delay, for a small charge, which will give the concrete an extra hour of time before the concrete starts setting up. We also carry Fiber to strengthen your concrete for a small additional charge.
We highly recommend that you always call for an appointment to make sure you get a trailer to meet your schedule.
