  • Let us know the number of people you anticipate working inside the trailer. This will assist us in planning the layout and ensuring sufficient space for everyone.
  • Describe the type of business you plan to operate. This information will enable us to offer guidance on suitable appliances, such as coffee machines, and advise you on power consumption and compliance requirements.

By providing these details, we will be able to provide you with an accurate quote and offer appropriate recommendations tailored to your needs.

Is there a lease or hire option for your food trailers?

Currently, we do not offer a lease or hire option for our food trailers.

Do you offer delivery or shipping services?

Yes, we offer delivery and shipping services for our food trailers. We can arrange for the trailer to be delivered to your desired location within New Zealand.

Which option do you recommend: braked or un-braked?

For lightweight trailers with a single axle and a gross vehicle mass (GVM) under 1.2 tonnes, brakes are not necessary. However, if you require a higher weight capacity, we recommend considering a tandem braked trailer. This type of trailer offers improved stability and weight distribution, providing added safety and performance when towing heavier loads.

What is the difference between single and double axle food trailers?

The main difference between single and double axle food trailers is the number of axles and their weight capacity.

  • Single axle trailers have one axle, while double axle trailers have two.
  • Double axle trailers generally have a higher weight capacity and better stability.
  • Double axle trailers are typically larger and offer more floor space.
  • Double axle trailers may require a more powerful towing vehicle.

Ultimately, the choice depends on your needs and the weight and size of your operation.

Where can I view your food trailers?

We have a range of stock available to view at our yard at 4 Seven Mile Drive, Belfast, Christchurch. We are open weekdays 9:30am-4:00pm, and weekend viewings available by appointment.

Do I need any permits or licenses to operate a food trailer?

Yes, operating a food trailer typically requires permits and licenses. The specific requirements vary depending on your location, so it's essential to research and comply with your local council regulations, zoning laws, and any other necessary permits for food handling and mobile food operations.
