With decades of experience in the trailer industry, we’ve developed a stringent over-the-road trailer inspection 9-step process that must pass all requirements, before being released on the road.
1. DOT Compliance Requirements
DOT complicance requirements for trailers include proper lighting, reflectors, brakes, and secure tie-downs for cargo. Additionally, trailers must meet weight and size limits based on the type of vehicle that is towing them

Safety is a priority for our customers. We assure that all our of rental and lease trailers are free of sharp debris and safe for the operators and loaders.
We ensure that all registrations for our rental and lease trailer are current.
4. Current License Plate
All PennStro over-the-road lease and rental trailers include a current license plate.
5. Operable GPS tracking device
We test our GPS tracking devices to ensure they are in working order, before heading out on the road.

Our trailers mudflaps are uniformed and road-legal to help prevent deterioration of the trailer, to protect fender wells, helps prevent debris from hitting other vehicles on the road, prevents splashing pedestrians, and creates a barrier between rear wells and tires.
