Trailer terminology

ATM / GTMAggregate (or gross) trailer mass ie the total legal permissible weight of the trailer including its payload. The ATM / GTM capacity can be found on the manufacturers' compliance plate affixed to the trailer.
TareThe weight of the trailer when empty.
PayloadThe legal maximum allowable load the trailer can carry ie ATM - tare = payload
Single AxleThe trailer has one axle (2 wheels)
Tandem AxleThe trailer has two axles (4 wheels)
Box TrailerA 'box' trailer is an open topped trailer with sides (and not a fully enclosed trailer).
Override BrakesBrakes are activated by inertia via a sliding shaft to the trailer tow hitch acting on either a hydraulic or mechanical (ie cable) connection to the brakes. A trailer braking control system to the tow vehicle is not required with this system. All of our trailers employ an override braking system as it's compatible with all tow vehicles.



What can your vehicle tow?

Check the manufacturer's plate or sticker to your vehicles' tow bar and also the vehicles' Owners' manual for the manufacturers' recommended towing capacity limits for both braked and unbraked trailers. The capacities quoted will represent the Aggregate (Gross) Trailer Mass (ATM / GTM) ie the total legal permissible weight of the trailer when loaded.

U-Haul Trailer Hire

At 1300 Meteor we’re proud to act as an agent for U-Haul and a top choice for anyone in Townsville who needs interstate one-way rental.
We offer a one-way interstate system that’s super easy to use. They offer trailers that are fully enclosed and lockable, so you know your possessions will be safe on their travels, plus they make one way rental easy and affordable. When you’ve completed your move, you just leave your rental at an agreed local location and U-Haul take care of the rest. Sometimes the simplest ideas really are the best.

What Kind Of Vehicle Can I Hire?

As agents for U-Haul, we can offer access to a good range of vehicles to help your move. One of the most popular is a trailer van, with lockable rear doors that allow for easy loading and secure transportation. Don’t worry if you need something different though, just contact our team to chat about what you need and we’ll get something sorted.

Why Choose 1300 Meteor 

Our years of experience mean we understand that even the best-laid plans need to be tweaked now and then, and we love the flexibility U-Haul allows us to offer our customers.
