What you need to rent a trailer. Renting a trailer isn’t typically very hard. You will need a vehicle that has a trailer hitch to attach the trailer. If you don’t have that, you can rent that as well. From there, you need to make sure the trailer will not exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle. When you reach the rental company, they will need a driver’s license to show that the trailer can be used legally. They may ask for a credit card and potentially a security deposit. You will receive back the deposit when the trailer is returned with no damage. Obviously you will need to pay for the trailer rental, but that’s really it!
