Dear Universal,
Thank you so much for all your help with my new horse trailer. You were all so lovely and helpful and made sure that I left feeling 100% confident with everything. I absolutely love my new trailer and it looks so smart.
I will definitely be coming back for any future parts or accessories and I shall see you next year for my annual service.
You come highly recommended.
With Kind regards,

I am so chuffed with my new Ifor Williams trailer! It tows like a dream and my confidence has improved so much with my towing and reversing since my lesson with Chris.
I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is slightly nervous with towing to book themselves in for a lesson with Chris.
Thanks again and I shall see you next year for a service.

Dear Universal,
Thanks so much for all your help and super service, I would highly recommend you guys to anyone!

  • The Ifor Williams HBX #iforwilliams #horsetrailer #iforwilliamstrailer #towing
  • || HBX Models || The new Ifor Williams horse trailers known as the HBX have an ultra streamlined aluminium body and a host of intelligent new features. These include the ability to open the rear of the horsebox as both a ramp and a side-hinged door, and the option to open the front windows fully, or just a little, for the perfect flow of fresh air to your horse. 
The sides, floor and ramps of the HBX range are manufactured entirely from aluminium planking. This lightweight structure provides clean modern lines, making the horsebox easy to tow without compromising on strength. The sides and ramps are all anodised to give a smooth and sophisticated finish which is easy to maintain. 
The chassis and body have been designed and engineered with weight and strength considerations at the forefront, providing a safe, strong and solid construction. 
All horsebox trailers undergo a rigorous testing as well as independent test tracks for complete peace of mind. #iforwilliams #horsetrailer #horsebox #hbx #towing #horses #trailer
  • To help celebrate the new Ifor Williams factory launch, Ifor Williams tracked down and restored the second trailer it ever produced (the whereabouts of the first is still unknown) which was a single axle livestock trailer. 
The 1958 Two Beast model was found lurking in the nettles on a farm just a few miles from the firm’s original factory in Cynwd, Denbighshire, and was treated to a full rebuild.

This included sandblasting the steel frame, fitting new softwood side boards and a keruing hardwood floor, before repainting in its original shade of green. The single axle and lighting gear was also replaced with new versions of the originals, which were still available.

It’s thought it would have cost about £90 when new.

Europe’s top trailer maker is toasting success after supporting a daring rally run by F1 star Valteri Bottas in one of the most challenging rally races in the world. 
The legendary F1 star made his rally debut for M-Sport, braving snow and ice-laden roads in his native Finland for the Arctic Lapland Rally – an annual rally competition taking in the challenging terrain of Rovaniemi. 
The driving ace, buddied with one of Finland’s most successful rally co-drivers, Timo Rautiainen, celebrated a stage finish and an impressive fifth overall in M-Sport’s Ford Fiesta 1600 WRC, which is being tested in the Arctic Circle in preparation for its next World Rally Championship event in Sweden. 
Ifor Williams Trailers has supplied two of its versatile Transporta trailers to the Cumbria-based team which has prepared and run the official Ford World Rally Team cars in the competition since 1996. 
And the sturdy trailers didn’t let the side down, ensuring the safe transportation of vital equipment and supplies across miles of ice-covered, mountainous roads and treacherous forest tracks as well as providing shelter from the elements for the 25-strong team which worked in conditions of -37C. “The trailers have been faultless, we’ve had no problems at all,” said M-Sport’s test manager John Godber. “They offer everything we need including carrying capacity and shelter for the lads in horribly-cold -37C temperatures. When they’re not in use we put our catering facilities in there so the lads can eat inside and shelter from the elements. “Everything we do is outside. There are no garages out here and so everything we need is carried by the trailers and they are fabulous. They look fantastic – we can’t praise them enough for their size and the amount of equipment they can carry including the cars if we need them to as well as wheels, tyres and spares. They’re always fully-loaded.” Read more about this article at
