The Benefits of Buying a Tipper Trailer

Anyone who owns a private or commercial vehicle is facing ever increasing operating costs. Fuel is the main contributory factor as well as increases in road fund duty. Many contractors are saying that in order to stay competitive they are rationalising their operations. One way they have found to do this is to invest in more flexible vehicles and machinery.

By adding a trailer to one or more of your current vehicles you can increase the capacity as and when you see fit. A larger vehicle that isn't being used to full potential all of the time becomes a financial drain on resources.

Residual values of second-hand tipping trailers have always remained high making trailer purchase an excellent investment. The low maintenance schedule also means that year on year the costs of keeping a trailer on the road are negligible when compared with servicing and MOT costs associated with commercial vehicles.

Owning a tipping trailer gives the user the increased flexibility over a standard non tipper. With mesh side extensions over 200 cubic feet of carrying volume is available which can be of real benefit when transporting bulky goods or removing rubble etc. Another advantage of this size of trailer is the increased manoeuvrability. Arranging delivery of a skip onto a building site is expensive and difficult if the access is limited.

The Atlas tipping trailer also comes with ring latches fixed to bed of the trailer. These are ideal for securing small items of plant machinery such as excavators which are easily conveyed onto the tipper by use of the heavy duty ramps that stow away conveniently under the tipping trailer bed, just behind the two tool boxes.

A unique feature of the Atlas tipper is the removable and adjustable partitions that allow you to transport loads without mixing them together. You can also use the tipper function without having to unload tools from the trailer providing you have stowed them securely and safely with the partitions.

Trailer security is a big issue and theft of any trailer is always a concern. Atlas trailers are able to supply aftermarket security devices that have been approved by insurers. Additionally we have a free ownership registration scheme with every tipping trailer.
