Exhibition and Event Trailer Hire

Exhibition trailer and hospitality unit hire from TCM gives your company a flexible, cost-effective way to promote your message at trade shows, show grounds, county shows and agricultural events.
We have a range of trailers for hire for shows, exhibitions, promotions, roadshows and events – from small 3m trailers for a limited pitch size, up to 7m hospitality units which offer a large seating area, kitchen and storage, providing an ideal opportunity for entertaining and networking with clients.
Our current list of over 150 clients includes national names such as Garic, JCB, Krone, Mercedes-Benz, RSPCA, Thames Water, the National Trust and the Peak District National Park.
Trailers are delivered direct to site for your convenience so your staff can simply turn up to the event ready to promote, and we offer a range of accessories such as furniture, generators, ground cover, patio heaters, trailer graphics and flags.
Trailers from TCM are designed to be extremely simple to use, and can be set up and ready to use within five minutes of arrival on site.
Our prices all include delivery, to help you budget for your event with no unexpected additional costs. One price covers the whole of England and Wales, to give you the confidence to plan your shows and events in advance without having to confirm prices with us each time. Alternatively, to keep the costs down, you can pick up the trailer from our hire centre in Lichfield, close to the Midlands motorway network.

Trailer hire for agricultural shows and events

Our hospitality, show and event trailers for hire come in a range of sizes, starting at 3m in length if you have a small pitch, right up to 7m in length for more of a wow factor.

We offer a range of trailer designs, with wing panels for trailer graphics as standard, and TCM hire trailers have a variety of different internal specifications, some with fixed bench seating included, others with more flexible space so you can move the furniture around to suit your requirements.

Don’t forget that many of our furniture options are provided free of charge; we just charge for additional electrical items such as kitchens, drinks fridges, ice machines, water coolers or heaters.

Simple and safe to use

We don’t have complicated key handover procedures and our trailers are designed to be set up and ready to use in less than five minutes. Because our customers demand speed of set-up and quick break down at the end of the day, we have designed all our hire trailers to be extremely simple to use, and as they are secured with combination padlocks, there will be no more arguments about who lost the keys!

Each trailer comes with a trailer manual to show how to safely open and close, and if required we will meet you on site to give your staff a full training session. All hire units have a copy of the current electrical certificate for the trailer, a fire extinguisher, a small first aid kit, and all the electrical items within the trailer have a current PAT test sticker.

Generator hire, furniture and AV equipment

Most of our trailers have no internal fitted furniture so that you have the flexibility to use the space to meet your requirements. For our exhibition and promotional trailers with no fixed furniture, we offer a selection of additional items with exhibition trailer hire which are free of charge and included in the trailer hire price – including furniture such as leather sofas or chairs for inside the trailer, reception desks, room dividers, bench seating and storage, leaflets racks, artificial plants etc.  Aluminium bistro-style tables and chairs are also free of charge and can be used either inside or outside the trailer.

As well as the free of charge items, for a small extra cost we can provide patio heaters, fridges, Tassimo hot drinks machines, external ground covering/walkways, planters, pop-up marquees, parasols and more.


If you need power on the trailer, we provide hook-up leads free of charge to connect to a power supply on site, or we hire either 1kva, 2kva or 3kva Honda silent generators.

We also offer a range of 20 inch and 43 inch digital screens or LCD flatscreen TVs for hire, plus a 2×2 video wall to help you really stand out from the crowd.  Our digital screens and video wall can either be used with a trailer hire or are an ideal solution for our clients booking internal promotions.


If the hire trailer you have chosen doesn’t include a fitted kitchen, we have small kitchen pods which can be fitted temporarily into any of our hire trailers, or why not try one of our hospitality packs including instant hot water dispensers and supplies or Tassimo hot drinks machines for quick and convenient hot drinks for your customers and staff.

Trailer graphics/branding for shows and events

For maximum impact, we offer a full trailer graphics/branding service. Prices start at just £350 plus VAT for the two wing panel doors at the left and right of the front opening, printed on to re-usable 5mm foamex panels. We store these between periods of hire so if you plan to use a trailer for more than one show, this is a very cost-effective option.

If your budget stretches to a full vinyl wrap, we can provide all the panel sizes your graphic designer needs and print and fit the vinyl prior to delivery.
