Tractor-Trailers are used mainly for long distance transportation of household goods with a long range of distance.
Tractors pull different size trailers. Most common are 48', 51' and 53' trailers. Moving trailers are made by Kentucky Company and known as Kentucky trailers.
All trailers are built to pull up to 80,000 lbs of goods, the largest trailer fits close to 6,000 cubic feet of space. The tractors pulling them have sleeping quarters for a team of two drivers that can drive in tandem non-stop. They can get to from coast to coast in half the time it would take a straight truck, can pull 3 times the weight, while using about the same amount of fuel.
Long distance carriers use tractor-trailers for any load with a distance of over 500 miles. The loads are being combined by the mover's dispatch department with same destination. They are loaded appropriately inside the trailer and then are being delivered on the way to the farthest destination.
