How to Find the Best Spray Foam Insulation Trailer for Sale

By Kevin Malone

A spray foam insulation trailer is one of the most important investments that a new or growing contractor can make. While it is a major purchase, the right trailer can help you work more efficiently and take on more—and bigger—jobs.

Getting the right fit is essential. Here are the key factors you will want to consider when looking at buying a spray foam insulation trailer.

Evaluate Your Spray Foam Equipment Needs

Before you start looking for a spray foam insulation trailer for sale, it is a smart idea to think about your current and future plans. You want to size your rig right while leaving room for any expansion plans. Put together a list of any current equipment you have or items you want to add, including tools and inventory needs.

You should also decide what options are must-have items, such as:

  • Spray foam rig: an integrated rig with pumps, proportioner, heated hoses and spray foam guns.
  • Electrical systems: a generator, outlets and wiring to power your equipment.
  • Climate control: Heating and A/C for temperature control.
  • Safety Items: Eyewash station, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit.

Prioritize features that enable you to work efficiently, produce a solid ROI and create a safe workplace for your team. Everything else is a bonus. While there are plenty of “nice-to-have” options, you need to know what is essential to get what you need without overpaying.

Establish a Budget

With your needs defined, establish a budget based on your available capital and financing options. New turnkey spray foam trailers can range from $40,000 to well over $150,000, depending on the size and options you choose.

If your budget is tight, you might want to consider a used spray foam insulation trailer. Quality used trailers can often knock off 40% to 60% of the cost, depending on the condition. Intech Equipment and Supply can help you put together an equipment list and price out custom trailers, retrofits, or quality used equipment.

Design and Construction Quality

You want your spray foam trailer to last for a long time, so pay attention to the materials and construction quality. Durable steel or reinforced aluminum generally holds up the longest. You will want to make sure there is proper insulation to keep your chemicals at the right temperature and allow you to control the environment in your trailer without high energy costs.

Solid, heavy-duty construction can extend the life of your trailer and be the workhorse you need for tough jobs.

Customization Options

One benefit of new trailers is they can be built and equipped to your specs. You can generally get some level of floorplan customization, so you can optimize the layout the way you want.

Inspect Used Equipment Carefully

If you are purchasing a used spray foam insulation trailer, you will want to inspect it thoroughly before finalizing the deal. You will want to make sure there are no mechanical issues that need repair and have a clear understanding of the condition. You will also want to check spray rigs, appliances, outlets and accessories to make sure they work properly.

Minor problems can be addressed, but major mechanical or structural defects should be deal-breakers. A pre-purchased inspection protects you from buying someone else’s headache.

Before offering a used spray foam insulation trailer for sale, Intech Equipment and Supply does a top-to-bottom assessment and tests all equipment. You can get a refurbished spray foam trailer that will work right off the bat.

Where to Buy Your Trailer

You can purchase spray foam trailers through manufacturers, distributors, or directly from other contractors. Buying new from a distributor allows for customization, so you can get exactly what you want. When you buy from another contractor or find a spray foam insulation trailer for sale on sites like eBay, you never quite know what you are getting.

One advantage of working with a reputable dealer, like Intech Equipment and Supply, is the wide variety of equipment options from major manufacturers. Intech can get you the equipment you need or build a turnkey spray foam insulation trailer for you.
