Trailers slow to hook up buyers in 2021

Buyer enquiries on used trailers for sale on Australia’s leading truck and machinery classified­s network dipped 25.3 per cent in the first quarter of the New Year compared with the same period of 2020, new data reveals.

Almost 1,900 trailers – from A-trailers to water tankers – are advertised for sale across the network comprising, Fullyloade­ au, OwnerDrive­, TradeTruck­s., TradeEarth­, TradeFarmM­ and TradePlant­

The decline was fuelled by less interest in key trailer types, including extendable (-100 per cent), pig (-80 per cent), dolly (-75 per cent), drop deck (-70.97 per cent), low loader (-64.29 per cent), pantech (-62.5 per cent), tanker (-55.56 per cent), flat deck (-40 per cent), B-double (-25 per cent), side tipper (-20 per cent), and tipper (-16.67 per cent) trailers.

Bucking the downward trend, B-double curtainsid­er (+300 per cent), curtainsid­er pull (+300 per cent), skeletal (+300 per cent), refrigerat­ed (+66.67 per cent), tautliner (+66.67 per cent), tag (+60 per cent), A (+50 per cent) and side lifter (+50 per cent) trailers all experience­d increased buyer interest.
