Moving Out

Dorm

Living in the dorms usually means you’re limited on space. You may not have enough belongings to fill a truck, but you may need something a little bigger than your car. Our smaller cargo and utility trailers are perfect for small moves. Not only are these trailers perfect for your larger dorm items, like a futon, they can also carry up to around 1,800 lbs. Therefore, you won’t have to leave any of your belongings behind with these trailers. Here are our smaller cargo and utility trailer options:

Cargo Trailers: these trailers are perfect if you’re moving locally or to another state.

Utility Trailers: these trailers are a good option if you have a local move as they can only be used for in-town moves.

Some of the items you may need to haul include:

  • Mini-refrigerator
  • Chairs
  • Carpet/rugs
  • Clothes
  • Futon
  • Storage shelves

Trailer Safety

When using U-Haul trailers for college move outs it’s important that you know how to load it. You should always load your trailer heavier in the front, making 60% of the cargo weight in the front half of the trailer and 40% in the back. Therefore, this will prevent your trailer from swaying and whipping. To learn more safety tips for loading a trailer, click here.

Our cargo trailers come with rub rails and our utility trailers are equipped with tie-down loops that are built in so you can secure your load with ropes or straps. Both will prevent belongings from shifting during your college move out.
