All our models offer dependable, hassle-free performance and are great for both professional tradies and weekend DIY legends. All you have to do is decide which trailer fits your needs best. Check out our trailer buying guide to help you decide.

The trailer bed and drawbar are hot dipped galvanised steel for longevity, plus this trailer has a front and rear opening/closing door for maximum flexibility of use. The cage makes it ideal for transporting larger and more awkward loads, and it's simple enough to detach for greater versatility.

I am looking at buying the 8x4 trailer with cage. How does this wof and reg work? Do I buy the trailer then take it straight to VTNZ?
Yes, that's right. You will need to warrant and register the trailer yourself, but there's a VTNZ just around the corner from our Auckland store.

Are these trailers welded together or bolted together (excluding the cage)?
A bit of both, the chassis, floor and sides are all welded together, we then bolt them together during assembly.

Hey Team, is the cage removable? Cheers
Yes the cage is removable - There are 8 bolts in total that hold the sides down, if you removed these the cage will come off pretty easily.

Solid trailer, good value for money!

Good trailer, solid deck. Already drove more than 1000km with it, really good value for money! Has been standing in the rain a bit outside as well, so far I have got no complaints!

The product a cut above the rest. Highly recommend to everyone.

My trailer wasn't wired up properly so failed the first warrant check. Unfortunately I picked up too late to get a warrant in Auckland so travelled back to Northland with an incorrectly wired trailer.

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.
