After significant research, I found Basic Trailers on Gumtree. I contacted them directly with some questions and purchased a 8x5 tandem axle trailer. The ordering process was very easy as they had it in stock. They respond to emails very quickly.


I guess this is the best price I can find in Adelaide, Quality trailer and professional services.

Sid Frankling

professional, trailer tows like it's not there. Great unit


Extremely happy with this purchase (8 x 5 w/ 900mm cage). Customer service was excellent, the trailer itself is very well built and finished. Will certainly recommend Basic Trailers in the future.

Awesome experience from the basic trailer crew. A young chap called Nicholas helped me with buy my dream trailer. Thank you.

Craig Blesing

I spent 2 days driving around Adelaide looking at all the trailer suppliers for a 8 x 5 cage with H bars for long materials. Hands down the quality design service and price was far superior at Basic Trailers !!!

Alexander Brown

I purchased an 8x5 3500kg ATM tandem axle trailer around 12 months ago. In that time i have probably done 6000kms with it and it has towed beautifully. As far as service goes, they were excellent to deal with and being able to use trailer pay was a bonus. would certainly use them again.

I would like to commend Sam and Leah at Basic trailers. I had been looking for a 8x5 tandem and pricing trailers for a while. Sam was great to deal with and it is fantastic to see these trailers being made at the Holden hill factory to a very high standard.

A time slot will be scheduled for you to bring your trailer to Basic Trailers Workshop in Adelaide for evaluation.
    • Warranty repair will not be honoured unless the trailer is brought to the Adelaide workshop. Basic Trailers will not be liable for any other associated costs incurred to return the trailer to its premises in Adelaide.
    • Once the evaluation has been completed, you will be informed of the outcome, the expected duration of the repair, and whether covered under warranty or whether there will be a cost to repair. No repair work will be carried out until an agreement has been agreed. As far as possible identical parts will be used as part of any warranty repair.
