Unbelievably Bad

The most unbelievable experience I have ever had.
Owner is the biggest [Content Removed] I have ever dealt with - ever. Had a [Content Removed] about my wife, my kid, my parents all because I was p*ssed off that the trailer they told me was ready did not have the cage fitted or have the correct plug fitted.
The product is fine as far as I can see Day 1. See how we go - pretty sure any problems will lead to more [Content Removed] by the trailer guru [Content Removed] Show details

Exceptional business

Rarely do I do reviews in regards to products I purchase. I feel obliged to give a review in regards to Basic Trailers and the service I received when I purchased my 8x5 trailer. From the moment I contacted them to the level of customer care I received when dealing with their staff was second to none. The trailer was exactly what I needed and the quality is exceptional. If only all businesses gave this level of care, backed up by quality of their products to all their customers which is rare today. Show details

Love my trailer

I got a trailer from these guys and the service was amazing the whole time. I wanted to customise it a lot but they were super helpful and it wasnt long until i had a trailer with heaps of extras. The rep that did the handover guided me through the whole thing and before i knew it i was off!
Love this beast of a trailer - cant recommend enough!

Excellent service and great quality trailers

The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and showed me what trailers they had in stock. They were really thorough and weren’t pushy they gave me some good pointers to what I would and wouldn’t need for a basic gardening trailer. One of the guys got it ready for me to tow home straight away. They even kept my 4 year old entertained by printing colouring in pages while they put a spare wheel on and got it registered. 10/10 service and absolutely stoked with my new tipper!! Show details

Quality service and trailers that are built to last!

I ordered a caged 8x5 trailer to replace a 7x4 that had seen better days 35 years ago, and your talented crew made some minor adjustments with no trouble. The schedule for production was easy to understand and to be Frank, didn’t bother me at all.
The steel and welding appear to be of higher quality than those of the competitors I surveyed before making my purchase, so I expect it to last as long or longer. Show details

Excellent product and friendly service

So, this is my first time buying a trailer, and I did a ton of research before finally deciding to go with Basic Trailers. I read a bunch of reviews, and these guys had the best ones. As a total newbie to this whole trailer thing, I was pretty nervous because I had read one review where someone was complaining about not getting good service. But I was pleasantly surprised - my experience with Basic Trailers was awesome! They were super friendly and really helpful, especially since I didn't know much about trailers. And the 7x4 trailer I ended up getting is perfect for my needs. All in all, I'm really happy with my shopping experience! Show details

Well made solid trailers

Bought my tipper trailer a month ago, runs and works like a true workhorse. Solid heavy build, wireless remote controller makes life easier. Highly recommended. Show details

I'm glad I went with basic trailers

About ten months ago, I purchased an 8' x 5' tipper trailer from Basic
Trailers. We shopped around and found that Basic Trailers really wanted to
establish themselves as "the place to buy trailers."
Materials and craftsmanship were superior to the alternatives on the
I can't believe how many compliments I've gotten from the various
tradespeople working on the site. I never thought a trailer could generate
that much buzz.
Sam and Malcolm helped me out a lot by customising the trailer to fit my
needs; now I'm glad I went with Basic Trailers. To anyone reading this who
is in the market for a trailer, know that I have and will continue to
recommend Basic Trailers. In any case, I hope you enjoy your trailer
purchases! Show details

Solid trailers

I commissioned a 6x4 caged trailer, I couldn't be happier with what they made. Solid build quality 10/10 from me. Show details

Great professional Adelaide company

Malcolm was a real pleasure to work with; they run a warm and friendly family business and were very accommodating. Did extra work on short notice. Take my highest possible recommendation for making a beast of a 12X6 Hydraulic flat topper. Show details

Do not buy a trailer through Basic Trailers

I definitely do not recommend this company, they do not supply or deliver correct measurements, I ordered a 10x5, they built me a 10x4.9.. with a paint job done by a pre schooler. they are happy to take your money but they wont give you the support if they have manufactured it incorrectly and poorly. Honestly there are trailer places in Adelaide that have a very different vision towards thier customer service. Do not trust this company. The name "Basic Trailers" speaks for itself.. Show details

Great tandem trailer

I've had the trailer for about 2 1/2 years now. It's going great and haven't had a problem. Great service when I bought it and very accommodating. Made by local Adelaide company. Show details
