Flatbed Trailer Hire

Flatbed Trailer Hire

Flatbed trailers, or ‘flats’, are generally used for steel, construction or agricultural work.

An extra option to improve productivity and reduce the handling costs of unloading is a Moffett Mounty. These truck or trailer mounted piggyback forklifts allow the driver to unload without waiting for a separate forklift.

Our flatbed trailers include:

  • Tri-Axle Flat
  • Tri-Axle Moffett Mounty Flat
  • Tri-Axle Tri Dec (Steer) Flat 10.5mtr
  • Tri-Axle Urban Flat 10.5mtr
  • Moffett Mounty Fork Truck
  • Tri-Axle Extending Flats
Low Loader Trailer Hire

Low Loader Trailer Hire

Low loaders, or Machinery Carriers, are specialised trailers for transporting tall loads.

As the trailer bed is lower than traditional trailers, this gives the vehicle extra height clearance for bridges and overhead structures. While extending low loaders provide the extra length needed to handle longer cargo.

This makes low loaders ideal for carrying abnormal loads and heavy haulage. As well as construction equipment, plant and machinery.

Our low loader trailers include:

  • Tri-Axle Extending Semi Low
  • Tri-Axle Semi Low
  • Four-Axle Semi Low
  • Tri-Axle Low Loader With Hydraulic Ramps (Machinery Carrier)
Curtainsider Trailer Hire

Curtainsider Trailer Hire

Curtainsider trailers, or tautliners, protect cargo from the weather with flexible curtain sides.

The curtains make it easy to load and unload goods without the extra covers needed for a flatbed trailer.

These trailers also allow easy access to cargo for loading and unloading from either side with a forklift. The curtains can be opened fully or only as much as needed to access the load.

Our curtainsider trailers include:

  • Tri-Axle Curtainsider
  • Tri-Axle Curtainsider Tail Lift
  • Urban Curtainsider (Tri Deck) Tail Lift 10.5mtr
  • Urban Curtainsider Tail Lift
  • Tri-Axle Euro Liner Curtainsider
  • Tri-Axle Euro Liner Curtainsider Tail Lift

  • Tall Curtainsider 4.5mtr high
Box Van Trailer Hire

Box Van Trailer Hire

Our box van trailers include:

  • Box Van With Tail Lift
  • Box Van
Skeletal Trailer Hire

Skeletal Trailer Hire

Skeletal trailers are often used to transport containers because of their lightweight metal frame.

These trailers are either fixed length or extendible. While tipper skeletal trailers allow the loose content of containers to be tipped and unloaded.

  • Tri-Axle Sliding Skeletal
  • Tipper Skeletal Trailer
