Should you rent or buy a semitrailer? It’s a question that keeps many in the trucking industry up at night.
When your cash flow is tight, if a job only offers slim profit margins, or if your business is seasonal, renting a trailer becomes a logical business decision. Renting can help you meet immediate business needs without having a significant impact on your cash flow. Since you are only paying for the use of the semitrailer, it’s less expensive than personally owning the trailer.
