At TCM, we don’t just hire trailers, we manufacture them too. In addition to our hire service, we custom-build trailers to your own specification, with sizes ranging from 3m up to 7m in length, all of which can be towed behind a 4×4 or van for ease of use.
PLEASE NOTE! From summer 2021 we are unable to take new orders for custom-built trailers until January 2022 at the earliest due to our suppliers being unable to source raw materials. We will continue to monitor the situation and when possible we will resume our normal build times, so please call us for the latest updates on 01543 546474.
We offer a full hassle-free service from design to build to after-sales servicing and refurbishment, and for many of our clients we also provide ongoing support, moving the customer’s own trailer between locations if they do not have a suitable towing vehicle or experienced driver. We can also store your trailer at our base, conveniently located in the Midlands and within striking distance of the whole of the UK.
TCM built trailers are of GRP construction on a fully galvanized chassis – we have three basic designs on top of which a range of options is available:
Alternatively, if you have ideas about the size and design of trailer you want then speak to us about customised trailers built to your own specification. Sizes range from 3m up to 7m in length, all of which can be towed behind a 4×4 or van.
Our exhibition trailers come with high quality vinyl floor, electric pack including sockets and spot lights, and a spare wheel is included as standard. On top of this basic trailer, you can choose from a range of additional options which include built-in cupboard space, bench or free-standing seating, header boards (on top of the trailer for marketing boards), rear personnel doors, kitchen units etc. All internal cupboards and fittings are hand built to the highest quality to your specification.
TCM merchandising trailers are based on a similar specification, but on to the basic shape we build retail counters with safety-glass counter top for display, and shelving underneath. The counters are removable, so our merchandising trailers can be easily converted back to an exhibition unit if required for promotional activities.
The internal back walls of the merchandising units can be fitted out with high quality slatwall with aluminium trim for displaying goods. The internal layout of our merchandising trailers can be built to your detailed specification with many colour choices of boarding and slatwall available.
At TCM Trailers, as well as our custom-built options, we usually keep a permanent stock of new, nearly new and second-hand trailers for sale, which could be a great solution if your budget doesn’t extend to new build or if you need a trailer very quickly. These trailers can either be sold as seen, or we can offer a refit package if the current internal set-up doesn’t meet your needs – for example, by adding a kitchen area, additional seating or cupboard space etc.
However, due to unprecedented demand in 2021 we currently have no ex-hire stock available until at least October/November. If your timescales mean that you can’t wait that long, we recommend you visit www.secondhand-trailers.co.uk where you will usually find a range of show and exhibition trailers for sale with a range of prices to suit all budgets. Or head to to our hire pages to check out the range of short- and long-term hire options.
We are happy to provide a quote to your detailed specification, or if you aren’t sure what you need, why not arrange to visit us and have a look at the trailers we have in stock to give you some inspiration? We are conveniently located in the heart of the Midlands, with our storage unit in Lichfield, Staffordshire, only minutes from the motorway network.
We will happily show you the different size options and you can view some of the trailers we have built, look at different internal fixtures and fittings such as furniture, kitchen areas and storage and talk to us in detail about your plans.
In line with current UK legislation, all our trailers are individually type-approved by VOSA to give you peace of mind, and we offer 12 months’ warranty on trailer builds, subject to normal wear and tear.
Typical prices for custom-built exhibition and merchandising trailers are included below, but for further information about the range of options available, please call Lindsey on 01543 546474.
