See some of the Low-Loader Semi-Trailers we’ve recently purchased…

A low-loader is defined as a semi-trailer that has two drops in trailer height; one drop immediately after the gooseneck and one just in front of the rear axles. The design enables the bed to be much lower than ‘regular’ trailers. They do not typically require an escort to warn motorists of a long or wide load so they can be driven on bypasses and motorways, which ensures businesses can quickly and easily transport heavy machinery to worksites.

They are very popular in the UK for the distribution of heavy equipment that can’t be dismantled into smaller sections. Most of these powerful, robust and efficient vehicles are prominent across Manchester and other major cities because the big plants need these vehicles for transferring concrete slabs, industrial machines and building products. They are, therefore, crucial to ensuring smooth transportation, so if you’re looking to sell your low-loader semi-trailer, why not complete our quick and easy form and we’ll send you an accurate quote within 24 hours.

The low height of these semi-trailers makes loading much more manageable than traditional trailers. Whether you are using the vehicle for hauling machines or carrying pieces of furniture, you are able to load these items quickly, efficiently and safely — reducing manual labour.

The robust build of low-loader semi-trailers makes them durable. They can last for years even if you carry some of the heaviest items in them. Whether its furniture, machines or even small cars, these trailers don’t show signs of breaking down because of their robust construction. Their excellent mechanical precision allows them to handle high volumes of weight quickly. You don’t even need to throng a clip to accommodate or carry all your items. The trailers are strong enough to load the objects and ensure safe and secure delivery.

Most moving companies prefer using low-loader semi-trailers because of their excellent road safety. The low height of these trailers allows drivers to manoeuvre the vehicle safely in traffic jams.

The construction of low-loader semi-trailers is another factor that makes these vehicles beneficial for various industries. Their goosenecks, front and back axles, and heights make them suitable for loading and unloading of objects. Most importantly, these trailers are not just ideal for carrying bulky items but also long objects of up to 4 meters in length. The strong body, together with vast space, makes low-loader semi-trailers an essential vehicle in industries that need to transport heavy cargo. Additional clip beds also allow drivers to load heavier and longer items that smaller trucks or trailers cannot accommodate.

There are so many different types of machinery they move, including combine harvesters, excavators and truck logistics — whereby operators can move multiple tractor units at once to save time and money.

Hydraulic neck lowbeds are very common in the UK, from 2 axle, 3 axle, all the way through to 6-7 axle for heavier goods, such as boats. These low-loader semi-trailers are optimised for carrying heavy goods and equipment with restrictions due to bridge heights. At Truck Trading, we also regularly buy wafer deck low loaders, which benefit from a super low running height — as low as 350mm. This means they are well suited for high and difficult shaped goods with an option to extend, such as when transporting wind turbines.

Step frame low-loaders are probably the most common vehicle for transporting heavy goods, ranging from agricultural tractors to plant machinery and access platforms. They are flexible and durable and can carry anything from 16-ton to 80-ton, whilst they can be used for lorry and car logistics. Step frame low loaders are one of the most cost-effective vehicles in this category as they have hydraulic folding ramps at the rear, which deliver exceptional versatility for loading any wheel-based vehicle, such as tractors, plant machinery and lorries etc.
