How to Properly Connect and Load a Rented Trailer

To transport heavy equipment such as a tractor or forklift, you will need to use a trailer . If you follow correct safety procedures, you can safely tow loads with a pickup truck or large SUV. Always check your towing vehicle’s Maximum Gross Combination Weight to make sure you’re not pulling more than it can handle.

Before you hit the road, you need to properly connect the trailer and secure the load. Check ratings on all hitches and other equipment to ensure that they can handle the weight you are transporting. For a step-by-step guide to connecting and loading a trailer, watch this helpful video.
