TRAILER HIRE

Box Trailers

Box trailers are mainly used for transporting goods in the shipping and supermarket industries. High-value or perishable items need to be moved on pallets or in roll cages. These are easily added to a Box trailer, which allows your business to run smoothly and hassle-free.

BS Trailer Services has a range of Box trailers available for hire. You're likely to find an option that will suit your needs. We have both tri-axle and tandem axle trailers on the fleet. These are fitted with Loadlok load securing. We also have tail-lift options for kerbside delivery and both barn doors and roller shutters on the fleet.

Due to their hard construction, these trailers are weatherproof in transit. The solid walls make sure your goods will be secure during transport. Also known as dry vans or enclosed trailers, Box trailers are most often used with rigid trucks. Hire prices start from £125 per week.

In specific circumstances, the trailer may be repaired in our workshop or by an authorised repairer on-site, directly for the customer. 

All damage and associated repair costs are the responsibility of the hirer.
