  • The best of both worlds!

    At localtrailerhire.com.au, we are trailer owners ourselves and aspire to make owning a trailer an even more rewarding experience. We appreciate the convenience of owning a trailer and have also created a great income stream from hiring them out. All without losing any of the benefits; it’s a win-win!

    Trailer owners in Australia can now get an even greater return on the investment they make on purchase, registration, storage and maintenance fees. Simply create your free listing with us and confirm the booking requests as they arrive. It really is that easy! Why not hire out your trailer, while it's not being used, and earn some great extra income.

    Benefits of listing your trailer

    It's free to list your trailer

    Trailer owners pay absolutely nothing to list their trailers on the marketplace. That’s right, nothing!

    Some owners are making upwards of $500 per month hiring out their trailers to locals!

    You set the hire price

    You are in complete control of your trailer, including setting the price. We also allow you to encourage longer term bookings by setting discounted daily rates for hires longer than four days and also longer than seven days. We charge the hirer a small 11% commission on each booking. You receive exactly the price at which you list your trailer.
