If you’d like to know more about the different types of trailer in our fleet … see below. Here we provide a general overview of each type, provide an indication of the specification options available and answer a few ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ about each type.

Please contact us to discuss any trailer hire needs that you may have and we’ll be in touch to discuss further.

Curtainsider trailer

Trailer with a 'curtain' along the sides of its body which can be opened to load / un-load goods.

Box van trailer

Trailer that has solid walls in order to protect its cargo, making it a popular choice with the transport industry for transporting goods requiring high security.

Flatbed trailer

Trailer that typically has a flat ‘bed’ as its floor but has no side-walls or roof, enabling it to be used for carrying a wide range of cargo, including bulky, unusual and ‘oversized’ items.

Refrigerated trailer

Trailer that is fitted with a refrigeration unit to enable goods, such as food, drink or pharmaceuticals, to be temperature controlled.

Skeletal trailer

A skeletal trailer is a trailer frame that can carry containers.

Walking floor trailer

Trailer that has a floor that literally ‘walks’ its cargo, usually loose, bulk material, out of the trailer via the rear doors.
