What Businesses Can You Start with a Cargo Trailer?

If you are ready to start a business and hate the idea of being tied to one location, a mobile business may be the perfect fit for you. Having a mobile business allows your business to travel with you and for some trades this is important. So, what businesses can you start with your cargo trailer?

Pet Grooming

Cargo trailers can be great for pet grooming because you can keep all your equipment in one place and easily bring it to all your clients. Being able to travel to your client’s homes is an added bonus for pet owners who are tight on time or find it difficult to travel with their pets.


If you are good at teaching others and have knowledge in a certain subject, then using your cargo trailer for tutoring could be a great idea. Traveling to your clients is a bonus for them and it means you can deck out the trailer to your own private office, so you have everything you need to tutor them.

Personal Trainer

A mobile or in-home personal training business brings the fitness gear and workout plan to the clients, wherever they are. You may have to pick a specialty since there are many different methods and techniques in personal fitness.


If you are a handyman that works for yourself, such as a plumber or an electrician then having a cargo trailer can be great. You can use it to store all your tools and things you will need so you simply just need to drive to clients and get going.

Cleaning Services

A cleaning service is another business that is easily mobilized. Cleaning services don't only clean houses. Residential cleaning is a popular option, but you can also clean offices or retail spaces. You can even specialize in a certain type of cleanings, such as green cleaning or construction clean-up. Services could even include event clean-up, where you might clean up after a concert or other public event.

Boutique or Spa

Nowadays people are very busy, so we are beginning to see more and more mobile boutiques and spas. Whether you can do home visits to your clients or not could be the difference between someone choosing you over some other company. Using a cargo trailer you can easily transport any equipment you may need with you. At-home beauty therapists or masseuses are very popular with celebrities and wealthy individuals.


Catering is a great mobile business for anyone who is an exceptional cook and likes to prepare food for people's special events. It often takes only a handful of successful events for word of mouth to take off, and your business will boom. Then, you can consider expanding your mobile catering business further into more extensive catering or even pop-up restaurants, giving you growth opportunities.

Junk Removal

If you have a cargo trailer and don’t mind doing heavy lifting or filling it up with other people’s trash, then you could use your trailer to do junk removal. There is a lot of money in this as not everyone is able to transport this stuff themselves. So this is perfect for people who want to declutter their home, have materials they need to get rid of, or want to throw unwanted items. The bonus is that you can do whatever you want with the junk, so if it’s good enough you can potentially clean it up and sell it for a second fee.

Moving Services

To have a moving services business all you need is a large vehicle such as a cargo trailer and a set of hands. This completely mobile business doesn't require any special equipment and start-up costs are very low and the need for these services is usually high, making this a smart business idea.
