Please allow 5 working days between ordering and collection as our trailers require assembly, but please call 0800 800 880 if your order is urgent. You will need to warrant and register the trailer yourself, but there's a VTNZ just round the corner from our Auckland Airport store. That means your trailer can be certified and road-ready pretty much the moment you pick it up.
Registration and WOF required, costs approx $135.
Our friendly and knowledgeable gurus are trained to answer all your questions as quickly as possible. So if there’s anything you need to know just give us a call during business hours, or send us an email any time.

Great Trailer, Great Price

Very happy with this trailer. Works like a charm, used to move dirt, bricks, loads of vegetation and it handled it with ease. Easy to manoeuvre especially with the jockey wheel on it. Highly recommended.

Trailer 8 x 5 with cages

Fantastic solid trailer, well put together, with some nice thought gone into practical locations of tie options and cage and gate options. Quiet and easy to tow and back as well as load and unload. Well done! I also opted for the jockey wheel, as many friends had raved about theirs. No mistake there as much easier to manoeuvre when not on car and also doesn’t matter what the load it it easier to hitch and unhitch.

Get this trailer for all the odd-jobs and pick-up of those big things off Trademe. It's been much better that I'd expect it to be, tows quietly and smoothly, so quiet infact that you can easily forget you have the trailer attached! -Only thing I wish for it to change, is if this same trailer was made with a tilt deck.
Decent trailer, excellent value, great service

8 ft x 5 ft Trailer with Cage
over 2 years ago2018-08-29T03:20:25+00:00
This is a very good sized trailer which never got to be used before one of the locals drove so fast up our street that they ripped half their vehicle off. This has prevented major damage to my van, but only slight damage to the trailer- a lighter made trailer would not have survived or saved the van!
Bang for buck

Not only a great little trailer the guys at trade tested was super accommodating... I purchased on a Thursday and needed the trailer the following Tuesday to move down to Palmerston north. The guys pulled out all the stops to have it ready for collection. All I needed to do was to pop into the nearest vtnz to get the Rego and wof done. Towed beautifully.
