Drake Trailers

Recent Deliveries October 2017

Great customer service is a given. But at The Drake Group, we strive to go beyond that by building long-lasting relationships through our commitment to designing safe, durable and efficient trailers that are a true collaboration of the customer needs and our expertise. It’s our point-of-difference and our customers recognise it too; it’s why many of them are with us for life.

One of those customers who've been with us for a long, long time – 17 years in fact – is Betts Bower Haulage Group. You may have seen them mentioned last year as our Customer in Focus, so check out their latest delivery of a 6X8 Steerable lowloader.

About Betts Bower Haulage Group

Betts Bower Haulage Group are a family-owned (third generation) business operating out of the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. They’ve built their business on delivering general freight and heavy haulage to the construction and mining industries, with no job being too big or too small to handle.

In 2017 alone, Betts Bower Haulage Group have added several new trailers to their fleet. The first being Deck Widening Tilt Slide and most recently a 6X8 Steerable Low loader, which they picked up in late September.

The latest edition featured a low height frame, fixed bumper, low height centre section and the first two axles fixed for enhanced steer performance.

The Drake Trailers Steerable Lowloader also features:

  • Unrivalled Low Height steerable frame
  • Drop centre section
  • Radio remote control Manual steering
     

The group purchased their first trailer from The Drake Group back in 1988, with Daniel Bower (general manager) saying that their loyalty stems from the consistent quality of workmanship in each product across our trailer range.

“In our eyes there is only one brand of low loader, and that’s a Drake,” says Daniel. “The strength, innovation and overall quality are unmatched. They are the highest quality trailer we have seen.”

Betts Bower’s Haulage Group have said that the conditions they work in can be tough-going on a trailer, yet their Drake Group trailers see them pull through the job every time. “We have a range from 3X4 to 12X8, dollies to suit and modular systems. We have had some specific visions for our trailers and the team at The Drake Group always take it on and deliver.”

Since the launch of Drake Collectibles, the company has strived to include great Australian brands and international winners. The replica of Betts Bower Kenworth C509 big was one of the best-selling die-cast replicas of 2015 and is still available for purchase.

We’re incredibly proud of our 17-year history with Betts Bower Haulage Group and look forward to the next 17 years. Our business has been built on strong partnerships and consistently delivering heavy-haulage trailers that meet our customer's specific needs.
