About Trailer World

Our Story

In the year 2000, Paul's dad decided to buy a trailer for home use. As a thorough kind of guy he went into research mode and discovered that most trailer manufacturers were grubby engineers who dragged themselves out from under a trailer, were covered in black steel dust and not what you would call customer focused - or even helpful.

Paul has a background in the automotive industry and thought then that there was a market for a trailer yard like a car yard where you could go and look at a range of trailers on display and drive away with a new one and/or trade in an old one.

Trailer World then burst into life in November 2000. Bringing together a team of experienced engineers, we started with a range of small domestic trailers and sold them through trade and exchange and local paper adverts. As we had two small children it was decided we should start the business at home so Margot could be there during the day and still be looking after the boys.

We would also buy used ones, refurbish them and then sell them.

In 2003 (I think) Paul started working in the business full time. We employed staff to assemble new trailers and assist with running the business.

We gained a reputation for quality product and service, and started getting referrals from satisfied customers.

Our turnover almost tripled in one year and we have never looked back.

In 2003 we start offering operating leases on trailers (like vehicle leasing, for terms from 1-5 years) as a more flexible and attractive option, and this has been very popular.

We also had enquiry for lease floats and now have a number of new and used floats out on lease for 6 to 36 months.

Trailer World remains our family business and that original vision of providing a trailer yard for you to get the right trailer or float at a good price, with the right advice and service as well, still motivates us.

That is what we mean by 'Trailer World - loads better'.

1. Product quality

A quality product is one that is fit for its purpose.

With trailers and floats that is a pretty simple matter - the strength to carry what you want, ease of towing, good features and assured durability.

To achieve that we put thoughtful design, sound engineering, quality components, and good corrosion protection, into all our products.

2. Commitment

Customers come back to Trailer World because we are committed to the industry for the long term, and because we act with integrity. That's what you get with an established, family business.

Avoid fly-by-nighters - especially online - and those for whom trailers are a sideline: the products may be suspect, the price may be unfair and the specialist advice and ongoing backup may be lacking when you need it.

3. Trade-ins

Your old trailer or float may no longer be right for you, but that does not make it worthless.

We have a ready market for second hand items, and the ability to 'do them up' for resale, so chances are you'll get a good trade-in from us.

Call Paul on 0800 2TowOne for an estimate of trade in value - you may be surprised at how much you'll save off the full price!

4. Leasing

Very popular with commercial users (due to the cash flow and tax advantages) and private users (who have only a temporary need or do not want to commit capital), operating leases are available on most products for anything from 12 to 60 months, or even shorter in some cases.

Leasing is very flexible and the trailer or float may be purchased at the end of the lease, or the lease may be extended or rolled into a new trailer.

"I bought a trailer from Trailerworld in June 2017. Very impressed by the product and the service they offer. They took time to discuss what I needed and then built it. The product is great quality and exactly what I need. They're clearly experts at what they do, very experienced, and enthusiastic about it. Very highly recommend them."
