U-Haul auto transport trailers are car trailers that are ideal for long-distance moves and have a maximum load towing capacity of 5,290 lbs. Our auto transport trailers are equipped with an easy-access loading ramp, security chains and ratchet-operated tire straps to transport your car safely and securely with ease.

  • Affordable car hauler
  • Easy access loading ramp
  • Numerous safety features

There are many types of car trailers for rent; however the U-Haul patented auto transport trailer design outweighs the competition in more than one area. It is equipped with automatic brakes, an easy-access loading ramp as well as tilt-out fenders that allows for trouble-free door access. Renting this premier vehicle trailer will truly make moving easier.

Another U-Haul exclusive is that our auto transport rentals are available for both in-town and one way moves behind your own personal tow vehicle as well as behind our moving trucks. When towing with your own vehicle, the car trailer will require a 1 7/8” or 2” hitch ball, the appropriately rated hitch system, as well as external mirrors and fully functional lighting. During the reservation process, U-Haul will provide an exact recommendation for your particular vehicle combination. Rent one of our state-of-the-art car trailer rentals today.
