There is a scarcity of trailers at the moment! Not only in the rental and leasing market, but when it comes to the purchase of new trailers, this has its challenges too. Delivery times of new trailers are on the rise, whilst the demand for trailers is also increasing. Due to this scarcity, we see that asset owners are increasingly looking for opportunities to use older trailers for a longer period of time.
A potential solution to this problem is to get your existing assets refurbished.
Are there trailers or other used transport assets in your fleet, with a refrigeration unit or tail lift that no longer works, or does the trailer have other defects? There are partners that can ensure that your trailers can be used again for several years by means of asset refurbishment. With trailer refurbishment, fleet assets can be either partially or completely restored.
Refurbishing a trailer depends on various factors:
Do you have an asset that has not yet been written off, but is ready for a good makeover? If so, refurbishment could be a good solution for you. Fleet owners can prolong the life of their existing assets for the short to medium term, delaying capital outlay for new assets, whilst avoiding the unusually long lead times for the new replacements. As such, an asset overhaul could be a favorable option, enabling you to have good quality refurbished equipment at your disposal quickly.
