About Us

Our homegrown success story

Our story began in 2018 when Leah and her partner Sam took a leap of faith.

While Leah was content in childcare, she had dreams of setting up her family for life. And with Sam’s 15 years in the industry, he saw a need for quality Australian-made trailers without the wait.

So, they invested their house savings into making their first trailer in their backyard. And they haven’t stopped since.

Homegrown Quality
There’s nothing like Australian quality and that’s why all our trailers are made here, not imported. And we’re proud locals, employing over 30 staff and using over 500 tonnes of Australian steel last year alone.

Innovation Leaders
We’re not just making trailers; we’re pushing boundaries. With a dedicated Research and Development department, we design state-of-the-art trailers and offer full customisation.

Groundbreaking Systems
We’ve invested in our own custom software system that tracks every trailer order from start to finish. It’s all part of our commitment to excellence.

Family at Our Core
Without family, Basic Trailers wouldn’t exist. From building our first trailer in the backyard to our six-thousandth, family has been our driving force. From quality and innovation to family and community, we’re here to create the perfect trailer for you.
