When you’re pulling thousands (or tens of thousands) of pounds behind you, knowing how to load a trailer correctly can be the difference between a job well done and a very dangerous drive. Loading your trailer correctly is essential, whether you’re driving a midsize truck or a heavy-duty commercial model, and the Badger Truck & Auto Group has put together a job with everything you need to know.
If you’re wondering how to properly load a trailer, there’s probably one question at the forefront of your mind. If you’re anything like other drivers near Madison and Chicago, you need to know how to distribute heavy loads.
