Set up in 1993, Trailer Resources Ltd started by buying and selling trailers, but soon found itself developing into trailer rental and contract hire. From its Hertfordshire base TRL began to build a modern fleet of trailers and an impressive list of high quality customers.
In 2010 TRL moved into a purpose built facility on 2.5 acres of hard standing site just minutes away from the MI and M25 motorways. This also includes three large fully equipped workshop bays, a DVSA ATF MOT testing station supported by our state of the art mobile service vans.
Through organic growth and founded on sound financial principles the TRL fleet is well over 1000 trailers and we pride ourselves on providing the best levels of service through a dedicated team of experienced professionals.
