About Universal Trailers

Established in 1982

Since 1982, people have put their trust in our service and new and used trailers.

Throughout this time we have gained the knowledge needed to help you choose the right used or new trailer for the job, which in turn will keep the item you are transporting safe and secure.

Ifor Williams Trailers

Universal Trailers are proud to be the main distributor for Ifor Williams Trailers in the South and this association has enabled them to become the SOUTHS LEADING TRAILER CENTRE.

As a distributor we benefit from their specialist experience in trailer design and engineering – their products continue to set the standard both in the UK and throughout much of Europe.

Family Business

Universal Trailers is a family business, which offers a personal and friendly service to you before, during and after your purchase with us.


It is without a doubt that our trailers are built to last. However it is very important that trailers are serviced regularly.

This is both for your own and other road users’ safety.

It will also prolong the life of most mechanical trailer parts and in the long run it saves you time and money.

Universal Trailers have a fully fitted workshop with trained professionals available to keep your trailer in top performance and have a long, trouble free life.

Our fitters are Ifor Williams trained and we are an NTTA Quality Assured Trailer Centre.

Where are we?

Universal Trailers are based at Johnson’s Yard in Coneyhurst. This is two miles east of Billingshurst, beside the A272.

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!
Best wishes,

Hi Mark,

The Universal Trailer team definitely has championship values and Premier League service!!
Best wishes,
