Trailers are incredibly versatile and used in many industries. There are also countless models and configurations for trailers, like enclosed trailers, utility trailers, equipment trailers, dump trailers, gooseneck trailers… the list goes on. And the type you need depends on what you are hauling, with many companies requiring several different types.
Regardless of the type of trailer you need, Crest Capital's no-hassle financing makes it easy to get the exact models you want. Even financing used trailers from a private seller is usually not a problem. Our great rates, a simple "no paperwork" online application, and same-day approvals make it easy to tap into Crest Capital's 30+ years of experience to work for you and get yourself the right trailer for your company.
Cargo trailers (sometimes called enclosed trailers) are designed to securely haul cargo, and feature steel or aluminum walls and roofs. They may have several convenient access points such as hinged doors, roll-up doors, and can be locked for security. They typically range from six feet in length up to 24', and are usually six to eight feet in height.
Enclosed trailers are generally another name for the above-mentioned cargo trailers. Since businesses use both names almost equally there isn't a definitive "best" term, so we'll list both. The industries that use enclosed/cargo trailers are numerous, from landscapers to building/trades contractors to DJ's to motorsports to many others (there are even refrigerated enclosed trailers). A significant advantage of cargo/enclosed trailers is they are usually easy to haul with a standard work truck.
Ever see a piece of heavy equipment being transported on a trailer? Then you're looking at a flatbed trailer (sometimes called an equipment trailer). Flatbed trailers are usually quite long, typically measuring 30’-48'. Other names for flatbed trailers include lowboy trailers, step deck trailers, hotshot trailers, and Conestoga trailers.
Utility trailers come in many sizes, usually 8' to 22' in length. Unlike flatbed trailers, they typically have side rails of varying heights and may feature fold-up rear barriers that can act as a ramps. These are ideal for transporting "smaller" equipment like skid steers and similar.
Looking similar to a utility trailer in size, and usually with side rails, a dump trailer's most notable feature is its ability to "dump" its load via a hydraulic lifting mechanism. This makes it useful for transporting soil, rock, mulch, firewood, and more.
The defining trait of a gooseneck trailer is how it's hooked to a vehicle. Gooseneck trailers utilize a "gooseneck" hitch that attaches to the middle of the pulling truck's bed. This offers superior stability and maneuverability as opposed to "bumper pull" or fifth-wheel trailers. Gooseneck trailers generally require at least a ¾ ton truck to pull them.
Utility and equipment trailers mix and match the names they use – what one person calls a flatbed trailer another calls an equipment trailer and still another calls a utility trailer (never mind cargo trailers and equipment trailers being essentially the same thing).

Taking on one or more equipment and utility trailers allows your company to be more versatile in its offerings and logistics. Quite simply, you can do more because you can carry more.
A Titled Finance Agreement (TVA) is likely your best bet if you wish to finance an equipment and utility trailer. This fixed-rate loan is usually taken out for between 36 and 72 months. In addition, your company owns the trailer, which allows you to take business tax deductions and/or depreciate it.
Some companies (typically larger corporations) may prefer not to have the trailer appear on their balance sheet. For those companies, a TRAC lease is the best bet. A TRAC lease keeps the trailer off the balance sheet, as it is not technically "owned". While depreciation is not possible in this case, the lease payments may be written off as an expense.
Besides the TVA and TRAC Lease, Crest Capital offers other trailer loan and lease agreements.
Certainly! Crest Capital is one of the few lenders who will finance used equipment and utility trailers. And unlike competing lenders, Crest Capital has no age limits on used equipment and utility trailers.
