Drake Trailers


You can depend on their after sales and spare parts as they are second to none"You can depend on their after sales and spare parts as they are second to none"

James Contract Supplies started dealing with John Drake and the Drake Trailer team in 1998 to build a 12x8 Fully Modular Platform Trailer.

John and his team designed and manufactured a trailer to World Standards and the trailer is still turning heads today. Drake Trailers designed our trailer so it could match any brand on the market in such a way that it had the capabilities to join side by side and end on end and expandable from 3.2 wide to 4.88 wide to assist with Australia’s strict weight restrictions per axle, James Contract Supplies now have 24 lines of Drake Platforms and 4x4 and 4x8 spreadable Low Loaders, we at James Contract Supplies do not use any other brand of trailers.

If you purchase a Drake Trailer you can depend on their after sales and spare parts as they are second to none in these areas for old or new equipment.

James Contract Supplies will always purchase Drake products for their fleet.

"We were pleasantly surprised at the extra details"

We would like to thank Ashley Hayes and the entire team at Drake Trailers Pty Ltd with their help
when purchasing a new Drake 3 x 4 Deck Widener Low Loader Trailer.

Ashley has being proactive and diligent throughout the entire process ensuring our needs were met
in a timely manner. From start to finish, he has kept us updated with information and photos
throughout the various stages of the production line. This saw us taking delivery of our new trailer
earlier then was suggested.

We were pleasantly surprised at the extra details and small features that were included in a
standard fitment. We have previously purchased ‘cheaper’ trailers from an alternative supplier,
however, after receiving this trailer we now believe that these previously purchased trailers were
not a cost saver at all based on the high quality of work and care taken by Drake Trailers in the
manufacture of our new 3 X 4 Deck Widener.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashley and the entire team at Drake Trailers Pty Ltd to
anyone looking to purchase a trailer for their business use.

When only the best will do"When only the best will do"

I bought my first Drake Trailer over 20 years ago and today have a fleet of them ranging from 3x4 full wideners right through to 12x8 platform trailers. Over this time I have found that nothing compares to the Design , Strength and Quality of a Drake Trailer not to mention the outstanding service that all the staff provide whether it’s from ordering spare parts to ordering a new trailer.

The simple fact is that buying a Drake Trailer will undoubtedly give you peace of mind knowing you have the best trailers in Australia

The customer service that Drake Trailers provides is outstanding"The customer service that Drake Trailers provides is outstanding!"

We are a family owned heavy haulage business based in South Australia servicing the Forestry, Earthmoving and Agricultural industries.

We worked closely with Drake Trailers to design a trailer that suits our needs and the Steering Widener is ideal for our operation. The customer service that Drake Trailers provides is outstanding! No question or issue is too big or too small, hence we went back for a second one and received the same outstanding service. The customer is always treated the same, regardless of whether you have one or ten trailers.

After the purchase and success of our first Drake trailer our maintenance and tyre expenses reduced dramatically.

The steering widener allows us excellent stability and manoeuvrability without compromising the strength we require for heavy loads both on and off road, as well as the ease of operations in tight spots around town.

We are very happy with both of our Drake trailers and look forward to working with them in the future.

My experience with Drake and Ashley Hayes was awesome. Right from the start Ashley had all the right information ready for us and we were very happy with the info provided when we started discussing our requirements. The outcome of our trailer is great and we are very happy with the service so far. The finish on the trailer is second to none and we are looking forward to developing some more options in the future for our next Drake.
