2-4 Car Hauler
2-4 car haulers or "wedge" trailers are typically hooked to a Ram 3500 or F-450 dual-axle truck. These carrier types run both intrastate and interstate transports.
8-10 Car Hauler
These are the big boys. Used for cross country and interstate runs. 8-10 car carriers are used for shipping multi-car loads throughout the nation for both dealerships and individuals. These carriers also help to save money being they carry an abundance of cars, the cost per car can be less.
