We needed a trailer with a high payload, and strong construction to survive the contracting environment.

Compass came out on top for weight, payload, construction, spares, service, price and being NZ made.

Very happy with our purchase, and the trailer is performing well.

Hello Compass Trailers
On the weekend I hired one of your 4.5m x 2.5m tandem flat deck trailers from Kennards to move a 4m x 2.5m shed fr
om Auckland to Hahei, Coromandel Peninsula. 
Bloody brilliant. Towed beautifully behind the Ranger – easy to forget it was even there. Didn’t notice any axle tramp on tight turning circles. Easy to use, smart and practical. Had three separate people make comments about how nice the trailer was.
Kennards were fantastic to deal with. Will be using them and your product again.

"Earlier this year (2018), I purchased a Compass Light Excavator trailer (twin axle). It is a well balanced trailer that tows extremely well and has an excellent braking system. The workmanship on the trailer is of a high quality. I would recommend Compass to anyone looking for a quality NZ made trailer."

I picked up my new Compass 8’ x 4’ trailer from my local Mitre 10 store here in Pukekohe yesterday, (07/08/2017) and took it straight into VTNZ Pukekohe branch to get the Registration and WOF done. When I picked up the trailer after the Technician had done the WOF, he made the comment “that it was one of the best constructed trailers he had seen”. I was already very happy with my purchase, but this just made it feel even better.

Thanks very much Compass for producing such a well-constructed New Zealand made product.

Jorco Farms have purchased 1 tandem trailer with stock crate, 1 quad trailer with stock crate and had a stock crate custom made for our ute from Compass trailers. We find the quality is the best available and their after sales service second to none. I am highly recommending Compass Trailers to anyone considering purchasing a trailer.

Compass Transporter

We are very happy with our Compass Transporter. We travel thousands of km’s towing our competition drift car all over New Zealand. It has performed fantastically – never missing a beat. We almost forget it’s there at times! The trailer is often admired by fellow drift drivers and their teams.
Thank you Compass!!"

“As the manager of a Northland wide shade/canopy construction business, I would like to tell you how happy we are with your products.
In late 1999 (that’s over 10 years ago) we purchased a large tandem trailer for our installation team. Compass added an extendable drawbar that has been a lifesaver on many occasions and saved us thousands of dollars in transporting over length steel members and impossible looking loads to remote sites on time and safely! Even when overloaded this trailer has stood the test and is still going strong, we absolutely wouldn’t be without it.
Earlier this year we purchased a second smaller tandem trailer and the same story… we use it every week, load with builders mix, tools, poles on the ladder rack etc, and never a problem, it just tows like a dream!
Its really good to see a local manufacturing company that hasn’t joined the cheapo, imported, disposable, price war and have kept up a consistent high standard quality product year in and year out.
Thank you and keep up the good work.”

C75 "I would just like to congratulate your team on the easy, trouble-free purchase of a Compass 7x5 Trailer from your company. This was a purchase that was a dream to do with the whole transaction being well handled and excellent communication with your distributor. As it is the first time I have purchased a new trailer I was somewhat green and would definitely recommend your company to others.
Also impressed with the after purchase follow up and gift. Well Done!"

"Such an easy little trailer to tow. I have had my 6x4 single axle for years and you would hardly know it is on behind!"

"To the team at Compass Trailers.
As having owned and used a Compass flat deck tandem trailer I am glad to be able to recommend them to any buyer. As having used a number of different trailers in my hire business for the last 25years I have had some that are real "dogs" hard to load and to balance - this is not the case with Compass trailers, they are easy to load, a dream to tow and man, do they carry heaps.

Happy Customer "We bought a Compass Trailer after doing a fair bit of research on the different options around. Just about a year on and I am very happy with the purchase. Great product, great service and great company. Couldn't have asked for more.
The trailer is strong, high quality and no hassles. I have put it through it's paces and it doesn't skip a beat. The service has also been outstanding every step of the way. An excellent example of a fantastic, high quality, New Zealand made product. Cheers."

We are really happy with our recent purchase from you of our 8x5 trailer, crate and camping cover. The trailer towed wonderfully on its maiden voyage to Waipu Cove for a camping trip. Everyone we come across is mighty impressed with it.

Thank you, we would recommend your trailers to anyone."
