Americans Need Cargo Trailers As They Move

By Michael Snow Subscribe to RSS | June 4th 2012 | Views:

For Americans, moving to a different area of the United States is becoming more and more common. It seems that having ties to the ‘old neighborhood’ and physical locations are increasingly getting erased by advances in ‘be everywhere, work anywhere’ technologies that mobile phones and Internet communications have provided us.

Because of these life improvements, and ability to live and work just about anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection, more people are choosing to live in warmer climates says the 2011 US census numbers. The United States now has about 310 million people living in its 50 states and territories. US News and World Report highlighted the growth and movement changes.

California is the most populous state, with 37.3 million people. Texas was the state with the largest amount of growth, up 4.3 million people in the last 10 years. Nevada gained 35% more residents, the South gained 14.3 million people over the decade, while the Northeast only added 1.7 million (the West added 8.7 million and the Midwest 2.5 million).

Because of this migration to warmer US climates, many people are opting to save money and time by purchasing enclosed cargo trailers to move their family’s belongings from state to state.

There are many benefits to moving with a cargo trailer. A family is able to move its household belongings in a moving truck, while gathering their immediate items and vehicles needed in a cargo trailer. For instance, a family could move its motorcycle on a trailer or transport family bicycles to its new location using an open utility trailer a motorcycle trailer or an enclosed cargo trailer.

Cargo trailers are also a viable option for storage at a new location. Or in some instances, goods cannot be moved immediately to a new location, so goods storage becomes an option for home movers. In the Southwest, where much of the movement is taking place, the air can get hot and dry in the summer months. That’s why many people choose to use enclosed cargo trailers for their belongings. This allows the goods to stay free of dust and sun rays in the hot summer months. If you’re among one of the many Americans moving with trailers, follow a few of these tips below to make your move across states or countries safer and less stressful.

- Load your trailer heavier in front - put your heavier items near the front of the cargo trailer. A good rule of thumb is that your trailer should have about 60% of the cargo weight in front and 40% in the back. Make sure to secure your trailer’s load thoroughly.

- If you’re unaccustomed to driving with an enclosed cargo trailer, remember to drive a bit slower. If you feel your trailer swaying from wind or turns, let up on the gas.

- For passing, allow yourself more room and passing distance than normally required with just your car or truck. Trailers can add 20-30 more feet to a moving vehicle. And as you see large grocery trucks doing this, when turning a corner, drive straight forward before making the turn to the left or right. This driving motion ensures that your attached utility trailer will not come over the bank or curb on the turning.

Spring will soon turn into summer and that’s when Americans are generally on the move. If you’re moving with an enclosed cargo trailer, keep these tips in mind as you start out on your next adventure in life.
