Specialist HGV trailer hire & sales are the principal activities of our business. We aim to have a flexible approach, allowing our customers to rent first (on a short or long term basis) and then buy the exact trailer they have been renting should they wish.

Rental discounts are available on flat trailers if they are only being used for storage. We occasionally also have tipping trailers, truss carriers and skeletals for sale or rent and are always happy to service, repair and test them. We will also consider them in part-exchange.

Our workshops have had many years of experience with specialist trailers, including track and hydraulic issues on extending trailers. Because we have maintained a HGV trailer hire fleet for decades, we are familiar with most of the issues which crop up with extending and steering trailers.
