Low Loader Trailer Hire - More Information

A low loader trailer is a semi-trailer, which has two drops in deck height, allowing the deck to be very low compared with normal trailers. It also has an access ramp at the end of the platform, to make it easier to transfer equipment on and off. 

Typical loads transported on low loaders include all types of construction machinery, such as excavators, mini diggers, road construction equipment, crushing equipment, road grooving machinery and screening equipment. Low loaders are also suitable to transport different types of machinery associated with wind power plants, such as generators, tower segments, turbine blades, hybrid towers and rotor blades. Other heavy items that can be transported include:

  • Forestry machinery (such as harvesters, skidder and forwarders)
  • Farming/agricultural equipment (such as tractors, combine harvesters, silage wagons and liquid manure tankers) 
  • Industrial parts (such as vessels, crane-loaded goods, pre-cast concrete and boats)


If you need haulage and freight services for large, heavy machinery, low loader hire is an absolute essential. With Colson Transport you can benefit from using low loader trailers, but without the headache or expense of purchasing and maintaining one.
