4 Off-Season Ways To Use The Dump Trailer You Buy For Your Landscaping Business

If you are starting your own landscaping business, you'll need to purchase a trailer to haul your equipment and supplies. Since you're just beginning in your entrepreneurial endeavor, you may not have the financial means to purchase more than one trailer. Additionally, you may be concerned about what to do with the trailer during the off-season. If this is the case for you, consider purchasing a 7x16 dump trailer.

Dump trailers can be used for many different purposes in addition to hauling mulch, landscaping stones, and a lawn mower. Here are several ways they can be used for more than just your landscaping business.

Hauling Junk 

A 7x16 dump trailer can be used to haul away junk. You'll need straps and bungee cords to secure the items and materials to the trailer for transport. Purchase a package of straps and bungee cords in various sizes so you'll always have plenty to choose from when you secure the loads. When the trailer is filled with junk, trash, and debris, you can then take it to your local landfill or dump and easily unload the junk and trash by using the hydraulic feature of the dump trailer. 

Hauling Furniture

You can use the same dump trailer to haul any furniture you may need to haul. You'll need straps and bungee cords for this as well. It's also a good idea to have tarps to cover the furniture for transport, particularly for inclement weather. To aid in removing the furniture from the trailer, you can use the hydraulics to tilt the bed of the trailer enough to offload the heavy furniture. 

Hauling Recreational Equipment

You can use the 7x16 dump trailer to haul recreational equipment and vehicles such as motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and camping gear. For hauling wheeled vehicles you'll secure them the same as you will secure your lawn mower by using the loops that are built into the bed of the trailer. Just be sure to purchase a dump trailer that is customized with these secure loops. 

Hauling Firewood

A dump trailer can be used to haul firewood. During the landscaping season, you can haul any trees you've removed and store them on your property in order to allow them to dry out so they're ready to split and use as firewood for the winter. You could even supplement your income by selling cords of firewood and delivering them directly to your customers' homes.
