Frequently Asked Questions

If you have another other questions not covered here, call us! Thanks.

01. Is there a minimum age to rent a trailer or tool?

No. While some companies set an age rental restriction, if you are above 18 with a valid driver's license and insurance, you can rent from us.

Hazardous materials like fuel, paints, chemicals and waste are prohibited. If you have any particular items you are not sure about, please feel free to contact us for clarification.

03. Do you have tips I can read about renting a trailer?

While the renter is responsible for all aspects of safety and security, transporting, moving, loading or unloading our trailers, we have some general tips: Know the height of your trailer and pay attention to the height of what you go under, including but not limited to bridges, trees, awnings, etc. Never go through a drive-thru with a trailer. 65mph or slower! Always!! Never go over curbs and avoid potholes. Loading a trailer should only be done when attached to a vehicle. Use a spotter when backing up or moving a trailer. Use caution around gas stations, stores and overhead signs. Watch your heights! For longer trailers pay attention to turning, swing a bit wider to avoid curbs and signs, etc.

We do carry a selection of rental hitches as well as hitches available for sale.

We do rent/sell convertors for most vehicles. 3. A Brake controller is required in the State of Tennessee for rentals that weighh 1500lbs plus. We do rent plug and use modules that work with Iphone or Android phones. Mudrock4x4 - sister cokmpany can install a controller permanently if you have a schedule appointment.

15. What is a brake controller and how does it work?

A brake controller is an electronic device installed in the cab of a tow vehicle that manages and operates the electric brakes of a trailer. It allows the driver to activate and regulate the trailer's brakes from the vehicle, ensuring synchronized braking between the tow vehicle and the trailer for safer stops. The brake controller detects the tow vehicle's braking through a connection to its braking system and sends a signal to the trailer's brake system to apply the brakes. The intensity and timing of the brake application can be adjusted manually or automatically, depending on the type of brake controller—time-delayed or proportional. Proportional controllers adjust the braking force in direct relation to the vehicle's braking speed, offering smoother stops, while time-delayed controllers apply a preset amount of braking force with a delay adjustable by the driver.
