Coil carrier trucks, which can also be referred to as steel carrier trucks in the industry, are built to haul large coils of cabling from place to place and have been specially adapted to do this efficiently and safely. With an average truck in this category being an altered semi-trailer, there is a lot of overlap with other vehicles of this kind. So you should be able to apply your existing knowledge to the process of purchasing a used coil carrier truck. And you can be just as exacting in your standards when looking at second-hand examples, checking that the stresses and strains of use have not left it in need of repair.
Where coil carriers differ from standard trucks is that the load bed will have been modified to accommodate the coils themselves, which of course need to be carefully secured during transit. Because of their shape, they might be quite volatile as the motion of the truck is exerted upon them, so cut-out sections of the trailer will keep them in place. And this is why carrying coils around requires a specialised truck of this kind rather than being something that you can leave up to an unaltered vehicle.

Of course, at this point you will need to consider just how regularly you will be taking advantage of the coil-carrying features of this type of truck. This will help to determine whether or not you would actually be well served by one, or alternatively limited by its specifications. A convenient option may be to purchase a used coil carrier trailer separately from a cab and then use it as required, since such models are available and affordable if you do some searching.
Coil carrier truck trailers are generally built to be sturdy, offering features such as sliding roofs for easy loading and unloading, along with a range of different door and siding options. And although there may not be any complicated additional mechanisms required within the body of a trailer such as this, you should still examine it closely to prevent any damage from escaping your attention until after the purchase has been completed. The same goes for the cab, if one is included, as the systems and configurations of components within will be what you rely on going forwards and should therefore be operating correctly.
If a coil carrier truck has been used regularly over long periods, or if it has been used improperly at any point, the results will be similar. Wear to the tyres, brakes, suspension and other key parts can be spotted and addressed before you buy. Equally important is the integrity of the trailer, both in terms of the materials it is constructed with and the overall rigidity, depending on the type in question. If you catch problems before they are exacerbated by further use, a used coil carrier truck can be a good workhorse, and one which will be well suited to the tasks with which it is charged for years to come.
