Some of the most common questions we get from people looking for mobile equipment rentals are, "What kind of power does the system need?" and, "Where are the ethernet connections for internet and phone?"

Not every trailer is designed exactly the same, and the trailer in the video contains a CT scanner, but most trailers have a similar design to what you'll see here, regardless of manufacturer or which equipment modality is inside.

The first time people contact us to rent mobile imaging equipment, questions often come up about the condition and the quality of the trailers. This stands to reason, as imaging trailers can sometimes see long trips between facilities and the same wear and tear that other vehicles encounter on the road. Worse- a facility may have even had a bad experience with a previous provider.
