Truck Trailers Frequently Asked Questions
Tractor trailers and semi-trucks are a major part of America's industrial and economic infrastructure. To learn more about the truck trailer, consider the following frequently asked questions:

What are the different types of truck trailers out there?
When most of us think of a tractor trailer, a box trailer and semi truck cab come to mind. A box trailer is enclosed on all sides with a lift gate at the back. They are typically about eight or nine feet high and wide, but length can range from 24 to 53 feet. Box trailers can also be refrigerated to carry perishable items. Next we have car carriers, which transport automobiles in loads of up to ten or so. These are sometimes enclosed with a tarp to protect expensive cargo. Bulk carriers are those that we see carrying liquids such as fuel or water. They also transport solids such as sand. Flatbed trailers accommodate items that cannot be loaded into a box trailer, and livestock trailers are built to carry livestock safely.

What are the requirements for becoming a truck driver?
A CDL, or commercial driver's license, is required in order to operate a semi truck and trailer in any state. Beyond that, most truck drivers are required to have perfect to moderately clean driving records and no past DUI offenses.

What is a typical day as a truck driver like?
Many truck drivers are on the road for weeks at a time and their responsibilities include a timely delivery, record keeping, maintaining communication, and cleaning and servicing the vehicle.

Companies that use truck trailers can save a lot of money by buying the quality equipment, trucks, trailers, and parts that they need in bulk from surplus companies. There are several discount distributors listed in your online directory that can give you access to the bulk truck parts, trailers, and equipment that you need. Some companies find that there are so many dealerships listed that it is difficult for them to choose one that is right for them. If you follow these guidelines, though, you should be able to determine which ones are best for you. When you first contact the company, you will want to determine how much experience they have by asking them how long they have been in business. Those with several years of experience should have the trailers and new and used parts that you want. Ask them if they have an online catalog that shows the products that they have for sale. You will want to find used and new trailers with quality axles, frames, wheels for the commercial freight, tow, dump, pick up, utility, recreational, hauling, cargo transport, semi, horse, flatbed trucks, and other vehicles that you need to drive. If you need trailer rental services, ask the companies if they offer this. Since one of the reasons that companies prefer buying in bulk from dealerships so that they can get discounted prices, you will want to investigate price differences in ones you talk to. Ask them to give you written price quotes so that you can determine how much of a discount they give you for your bulk order.
