There is no age limit for a trailer coming onto CT. We need to verify their Annual DOT Inspection if they are bringing on their own trailer. They should have stickers on their trailer from having a Clean Inspection.

Flatbed Requirements


Given our insurance, we only haul basic items in flatbeds. This means we cannot do coils, oversize or special loads. We can basically do construction material that fits nicely in the parameters of the trailer
