I found Australia Pacific Trailers on gumtree as I’m from Port Macquarie. And from start to finish on my new car trailer I’ve never been so pleased in all my life with the Australian quality and workmanship these guys showed – HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

1. What will you use the car trailer for?
Before you even set foot into a car trailer Brisbane dealership to view car trailers for sale, ask yourself what you intend to use your car trailer for.
A brand new car trailer will set you back upwards of a few thousand dollars so you want to make sure you’re going to get the right one.
While transporting your car may be the main use of your car trailer, you may have some other uses in mind.
Australia Pacific Trailers has many different types of car trailers for sale, including:
Flat deck car trailer
Flat deck car trailers feature a completely flat deck without any obstruction. The wheels sit below the deck, which means they are clear of the deck.
These car trailers are perfect for transporting pallets, machinery, or other similar items. Flat deck car trailers are useful for large loads and you can load them using a crane or forklift.
Enclosed car trailer
An enclosed car trailer provides protection from weather and other hazardous conditions. This can prevent theft of your car or other valuable items.
An enclosed car trailer has a ramp door at the rear for loading.
You may also want the option of a side door for easy access.
Enclosed car trailers should have a low angled floor at the back of the trailer for ease of access. Like a regular trailer, your enclosed trailer should have tie down points.
Race car trailer
Race cars have a build that is low to the ground. That means they have
This can make it very hard to get a race car onto a standard trailer.
The deck of a race car trailer lowers to a few degrees.
Once you load the race car, you can raise the deck back to the normal position, and strap down the wheels.
And then you’re off to the races!
Car carrier trailer
A standard car carrier trailer can come in many different designs.
It may have a tilt design with a hydraulic system to control the tilting function.
A tilt trailer provides you with ultimate convenience. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, you may be better suited to a car carrier trailer with a ramp.
2. How heavy will your load be?
When you’re buying a car trailer Gold Coast, be sure to check the load capacity specifications. A car trailer will be a dual-axle at a minimum. Each axle has a certain load capacity.
The tyres on the trailer should also be good quality and able to withstand the weight. Look for the trailer mass specifications displayed on the trailer. If there are no trailer plate specs, it’s not compliant with Australian towing regulations.
The trailer plate will display various kinds of mass terminology. This includes the payload, which is the total capacity that the trailer can carry.
The vehicle you use to pull the trailer needs to be able to handle the fully loaded trailer. When it comes to car trailers, the vehicle will most likely need to be a four wheel drive or similar.
3. Look for quality workmanship
The purpose of a car trailer is to carry at least a couple of tonnes. Look for the use of strong material in the build of a car trailer.
When you’re inspecting car trailers for sale, don’t be afraid to look closely at the quality of the welding job. You don’t want to buy a car trailer from a maker who cuts corners by doing a poor welding job. Without a proper car trailer build, you risk the whole thing coming loose and falling apart. The welding job should be generous, to lengthen the life span of the car trailer for sale.
You’ll also want to look for high-quality paintwork. Your brand new car trailer shouldn’t have any signs of rust.
Your trailer should also feature electronic brakes. An electronic braking system works in coordination with the towing vehicle brakes. When the driver of the vehicle is braking, the trailer will automatically brake.
Australia Pacific Trailers build trailers to Australian standards and meet all safety needs.
4. Check the drawbar of the trailer
The drawbar of a trailer should bit a longer than half the size of the vehicle that’s towing the trailer. This provides you with the right turning radius when you’re going around corners so you can turn without hitting the vehicle that’s towing the trailer.
The A-frame is generally the strongest and most practical drawbar design you’ll find. You’ll want to make sure the drawbar has enough room to house a spare tyre if needed.
It’s also very handy to have a dolly attached to the drawbar, to make it easier to move your car trailer around.
