Please allow 5-10 working days between ordering and collection as our trailers require assembly, but please call 0800 800 880 to confirm current assembly times. 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.

Trailer 8x5

Excellent trailer and worth the money

Teps Tauranga
Great trailer at a good price

No complaints here, great trailer. Would be better if it came with a warrant and rego but the trailer is decent otherwise. Happy with the purchase.

8 x 5ft trailer

Very good value for money. Towed it from Auckland to Wellington with no trouble. Very good cage set up.

HJ Wellington
Pretty good

Pretty large and sturdy I haven't found anything wrong with it but my mate says it's heavy when he tries to move it by hand but I don't think it's too heavy

Brooklyn Keith McNabb Napier
Good value.

Check the wheel nuts before driving off! Expected jockey wheel and spare wheel to be fitted when ordered with the trailer, they weren’t. Wiring will need attention, tying up and abrasion protection in places. Overall good value and tows beautifully.
