U-Haul rents out a wide range of moving trucks, trailers, and towing tools. Customers want to know if they can buy used versions of these moving devices because they work so well.
So, does U Haul sell used trailers?
Does U Haul Sell Used Trailers?
Currently No, there are no used or outdated trailers for sale at U-Haul. Once a trailer has outlived its useful life, it is disposed off by the corporation. But you can buy U-Haul trucks, cabs, chassis, and tow dollies, trailer hitches etc. To begin the purchase process, you’ll need to speak with a U-Haul Fleet Dealer near you. To buy one of these automobiles, you do not have to be a company owner.
As for buying U-Haul trailers, I’m afraid they are not for sale. U-Haul will keep trailers in the fleet until the repair limit which I’d based on the age of the equipment forces us to scrap the trailer and sell the aluminum and the steel. The reason for this is U-Haul doesn’t want to have to determine whether a trailer was sold or stolen, and it probably helps them keep the corner on the market.

Who makes the car trailers for U-Haul, and can they be purchased new?
U-Haul manufactures its own trailers and towing equipment. There are several plants around the country either building trailers, and towing equipment like tow dollies and auto transports; or they are building and mounting the van boxes we also make. U-Haul buys can and chassis made to U-Hauls specific specifications, so Ford or GM will build equipment can and chassis to their orders.
U-Haul also has a large network of maintenance and repair facilities. They maintain and repair their own equipment at repair shops in Hawaii, Alaska and all the Canadian Provinces as well as the States.
How Do You Buy a U-Haul Truck?
To buy a U-Haul truck, first, you need to find your nearest U-Haul location. You can do this by visiting the website and entering your zip code or city and state. Once you have found your local U-Haul, you will be able to view the inventory of trucks available.
Inventory levels vary by geographic area. Some areas will sell out of certain size trucks from time to time. Be sure to call ahead to check availability before making the trip to the store.
However, here’s a general guideline of how the process might go:
- Make an appointment with a U-Haul Fleet Dealer
- Visit in person and give your vehicle of choice a test drive. You might inspect different vehicles to see which one fits your needs.
- Discuss pricing, payment, and financing options.
- Fill out any paperwork and forms required.
- Drive your used U-Haul truck or towing device off the lot.
