Frequently Asked Questions
Do your trailers came with rego and wof?
Yes, if the trailer is being bought by a limited liability company we can arrange registration or supply your NZTA number.
If the trailer is being bought by a private individual you will need to register it yourself as the purchaser must present their ID. We will, however provide you with the forms you need and explain how to go about it. Once registered we can arrange the Wof.
Alternatively when you pick up your trailer, we can have the paperwork ready and you can take it to VTNZ located near our sites. Registering and WoF can be done at AA, VINZ or VTNZ.
What does GVM mean?
Gross Vehicle Mass is the combined weight of and empty Trailer (Tare) and Load (Payload).
As an Example: a trailer with a GVM: 2000kg would have a Tare of 450kg and Payload of 1550 kg. Please remember if you have a cage and a spare tyre, these weights will be needed to be added to the Tare weight
GVM quoted is for normal road use. Any overloading will void all warranties.
Do I need to do any maintenance on my trailer after purchasing?
Yes, this is very important and is outlined in the How to Care for your Trailer attached to your invoice. This information is also available on our website.
What is your best price?
We keep our prices to a minimum and advertise at the best we can offer rather than inflating prices and then offering a discount. The upside is that the one-off buyer gets the same deal as the corporate buyer.
Do you offer Finance?
Yes, we have options through Fair City Finance and Marac Finance, please contact us to discuss.
