So You Wanna Rent a Trailer, in Cleveland

Yay! You’ve just been offered a bunch of free mulch – it’s yours, if you can haul it away.

Congratulations! Your kid is off to college. Now how’s he gonna get ALL THAT to the dorm?!

The folks are downsizing and the piano is yours. Plus everything in the garage…so you might need a car hauler, too.

You may need a trailer once or twice a year, for a variety of reasons. The good news: we rent trailers when you need ’em.

Trailers for Rent in Cleveland

Cargo or enclosed trailers are ideal for moving many things, but sometimes what you need is an open trailer, with or without sides. Maybe you need a tilt trailerOr a car hauler, tow dolly, flatbed deckover, or motorcycle trailer.  No problem – we rent them all.

Why rent from JTI?  The fact is, you can call a chain and rent a variety of different trailers. But there’s only one place you can rent a trailer from a local company founded in Cleveland in 1935, and that’s us.

Of course we think there are a few other reasons our customers keep coming back. One of those reasons: our extensive hauling expertise. We didn’t name this blog “Trailer and Hitch Experts” on a whim, and we don’t hire just anyone who can run a cash register and fill out forms. Our employees can actually help you select the right trailer for the job, and acronyms like GVWR roll off their tongues like torsion axles. (Trailer humor … no extra charge.)

Call us when you know what you’ll be hauling, and when, then we’ll help you determine what you need. (Including any accessories that might come in handy.)

How much does it cost to rent a trailer?

Unlike the big chains, we rent trailers on a sliding price scale. For example, a 4×7′ open trailer that rents for $30 a day is just $67 for three days. (Need a trailer for more than a week? We’ll work with you.)

Wood and steel deck landscape trailers rent for about $50 per day. Deckover and Tilt trailers start at $90 per day. Of course, we understand that one day often doesn’t get the job done – just let us know how long you think you’ll need the trailer, and we will quote you a price based on that.

Local Trailer Rentals

Why rent locally instead of from a national chain? Well…we have a lot of answers. Hauling isn’t brain surgery, but there are a lot of important details that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Our approach to the business is different from a franchise. Trailers (and hitches) are practically in our blood. Our goal isn’t to rent the trailers on our lot, it’s to make sure you get the one you need, for the job you’re doing, and that it’s a good, safe match for your vehicle.

Renting a Trailer: Prices & Planning

When you call or stop in, we’ll ask a few questions – if it’s your first time renting a trailer, don’t panic. We’re accustomed to working with people who depend on their trailers, day in a day out, all year long. But if you don’t, just ask us to slow down – we’re happy to help no matter what your trailer experience. Even if you don’t have a hitch!

Questions we’ll ask include:

  • What are you hauling? (We need to have a general idea of weight, in addition to size)
  • What’s the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the vehicle you’ll be using to tow?
  • What kind of hitch do you have?
  • You don’t have a hitch? We can fix that – without an appointment!

New in 2015

We’ll be adding several new trailers to our rental trailer fleet this summer. We’re excited, and looking forward to sharing these innovative trailers with the Cleveland market. Interested in renting a trailer? Or in finding out what’s new in the trailer industry? Call us! We’d love to talk to you. 440.232.4311

Spring 2015 Home Projects: Happy Hauling!

NariHome Show-01-22-15

Many of our customers will be at the NARI Home Improvement Show this weekend. The I-X Center show will be packed with Cleveland-area companies including Sherwin Williams, Champion Windows, Ohio State Waterproofing, and more. 

Of course, it’s an exciting show for those companies but it’s really designed for homeowners – the DIYers who plan to landscape, add a deck, remodel a kitchen, and countless other home improvement projects. Maybe you’re one of them?

Haulin’ Out the 2015 Home Improvement Projects

Often when making home improvements, you’ll find a trailer is really useful. That’s where we come in! Whether you need an open trailer to haul out some old decking you’ve taken down, a flatbed for mulch, a dump trailer or something else, you can rent it here.

Call us at 440.232.4311 whenever need to rent a trailer. (The sooner the better; the early bird gets the best selection!)

No Hitch? No Problem!

While our commercial customers typically schedule service appointments well in advance (Cleveland’s landscapers are calling for seasonal maintenance now, for example) we provide “Hitches in a Hurry” for those who want to take advantage of their vehicle’s hauling ability. Hitches in a Hurry, as you might guess, don’t require appointments. (What’s that? You didn’t know your Mini Cooper, Prius or Toyota Camry could handle a trailer? It can!  Call or stop in to find out how you can haul safely with your small car.) 

Happy dreaming at the Home Improvement Show!

Psst: Did you know you coupons are available for the show? Pick ’em up at Sherwin Williams retail stores or fill out the online form. Consider it a little bonus for reading all the way to the end of this post 😉
