How to Accessories Your Car

Hello! My name is Andy. When I purchased my first car, I didn't really think about how I could accessorise it. I was so focused on making sure that I the tyres were inflated to the correct pressure, that the engine was in good condition and the exhaust system was working well. However, one day when I was driving around the streets of Sydney, I noticed a guy in the same model car as me. However, his looked much better. It had customised seat covers, a metal gear shift stick and custom decals on the bodywork. I got talking with him, and he recommended a place I could buy my own auto accessories. Now, my car looks great. I decided to start this blog so I could share my passion for auto accessories with others.

Considerations When Choosing A Tradesman Trailer

With so many varieties of tradesman trailers available, it can be tricky to choose one to suit your needs. If you're on the hunt for a trailer for your business, here are several key considerations to keep in mind.

Size and Weight Capacity

The first factor to consider is the size and weight capacity of the trailer. You need one large enough to store all your tools and equipment without being so big that it's hard to steer around work sites.

The weight capacity is also crucial, and what is appropriate will depend on the type of work you do. If your trade requires you to transport bulky equipment and tools, you will need a trailer with enough power. On the other hand, you may only need to carry around smaller tools, and a lighter-weight trailer will be adequate. The trailer's weight will also need to be within the range that your vehicle can safely tow, which will be specified in the owner's manual.

Ultimately, you want to avoid ending up with a trailer that can't store everything you need comfortably, as this will affect your productivity. But a smaller trailer will be easier and more convenient to tow. The trailer's manoeuvrability is crucial if you regularly need to navigate narrow and cramped spaces.

Open or Closed Trailer

You must also choose between a flatbed open model or a closed trailer. A flatbed trailer can transport bulky materials and items that may not fit within an enclosed trailer. These open models are also typically lighter and easier to tow, as they don't have as much metal in their construction.

On the other hand, a closed trailer is more secure and may be necessary to protect equipment from the weather. Some models have built-in alarms and locking systems, making them safe to leave unattended. Trailers, such as those for electricians or plumbers, are custom designed for specific needs.

User Friendly

You also need to consider how user-friendly the trailer is in terms of other features, such as access doors and tie-down points. Some trailers have outward-opening side access doors as well as upward-opening rear access doors, which increases functionality and convenience.

Also, consider the tie-down points and whether a trailer has anchor points, D-rings or rails at the side that allow for multiple tie-down points for bulky items. Additionally, consider how easy the trailer is to hitch and unhitch. A ball hitch is easier to use than a pintle hitch, but you may need a pintle hitch if you intend to tow a large and heavy trailer.
