If your customer is a retail store, it is best to prepare a skeleton trailer that can load 40 ft containers, especially around Black Friday and Christmas shopping seasons. This allows them to have a more adequate supply of goods.

Construction company: 40 ft skeleton trailer

Construction companies use containers very frequently. If your client is a construction company, it is recommended that you choose a 40 ft skeleton trailer. According to our experience, the container sizes chosen by construction companies are usually half-and-half. In other words, they have a 50% probability of choosing a 20 ft container and a 50% probability of choosing a 40 ft container.

A 40 ft container is usually used for new construction; a 20 ft container is usually suitable for smaller jobs in smaller locations (such as house reconstruction).

Construction company

Therefore, if you mainly serve the customers of a construction company, it is recommended that you choose a 40 ft skeleton trailer, because it can transport both 20 ft containers and 40 ft containers.
