The average price for a trailer constructed with construction equipment has risen to $150, according to a new study.
The study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the U.S. Department of Labor and the U and V Department of Defense found that trailers can now be built with about 20 percent more than in 2006.
The cost of the equipment varies widely.
The Institute for Supply Management, for example, says a trailer can cost $100,000 to $125,000.
The average cost of construction equipment is $150 per ton.
The construction industry has been hit hard by the economic downturn, and it’s been a slow but steady recovery.
In 2012, there were 4.2 million trailer sales.
Construction was a top-selling occupation, according, according the American Society of Civil Engineers.
