How to Load and Unload a School Bus on a Trailer
School buses can vary in dimensions and weight depending on specific features such as the brand and configuration. The buses range from 23 to 45 feet in length, 8 to 8.5 feet in width, and 10.5 to 11.5 feet in height. The weight of buses ranges from 10,000 to 36,000 pounds. When loading and unloading such cargo, it’s important to consider such aspects to ensure the right equipment and trailer are used. To safely load a bus, our experts ensure the trailer is in good condition and suitable to handle the weight. It’s then positioned on level ground with enough space to maneuver the bus safely onto the carrier. The trailer hitch is attached to the towing vehicle to ensure it’s connected and locked in place. If a ramp is used, the bus is safely driven onto the trailer with the help of a spotter. Once set in place, it’s secured using straps or chains designed for heavy vehicles. Double-check the safety measures before driving off. When the bus is unloaded, the trailer is parked on level ground with enough space and free of obstacles to drive the bus off the trailer safely. Remove the safety straps and chains; if hitched, slowly lower the gear until the bus is set on the ground.
