Welcome to ACTIV Trailers!

Updated: Jul 18









At ACTIV Trailers, we work with a range of European Trailer manufacturers to provide trailers to suit the demanding needs of New Zealand roads and conditions. Whether commercial, domestic, farming, or recreational, we have the solution!



Meet Dean Garton, the owner and manager of ACTIV Trailers. Dean has had a passion for trailers ever since he was a kid building Lego trailers. This interest grew as he saw the variety of uses a trailer can have. "Using a trailer for many different and varied purposes has opened my eyes to how a trailer can become your best friend!"




Trailer enthusiasts may be interested to learn that a Scottish-American designer and inventor named Alexander Winton is widely credited with inventing the semi-trailer in Cleveland, Ohio. Semi-trailers have come a long way from their roots in the early 1900s.


Fast forward 120 years, it took 18 months of studying trailer suppliers around the world before we selected Europe. We have found Europe (above all other nations in the world) to be of the highest quality workmanship, steel, and componentry streets ahead in design and innovation, thus providing unparalleled trailers. In Europe, we discovered the finest quality trailer range available - lightweight, well built with numerous features, and extremely suitable for NZ roads and conditions.


Although we can't claim that because something is built a particular country that the product is guaranteed to be of certain quality, the team at ACTIV Trailers select certain factories for specific demands. Whether price, ratings, weight limits, durability, load heights, or simply good looks are your priority, we have the trailer for you.


Our passion for trailers spans more than 25 years! The fact that something simply attached to the back of your car, ute, SUV, truck or bus and have such a wide range of uses never ceases to amaze us.


Historically, when we think of towing a trailer, we would often think of old clunky things that used to bounce around behind us, pushing our vehicles all over the road, intensifying every bump, and would often make the journey downright unpleasant.


Thankfully with the help of ACTIV, we can say goodbye to those old days, as traveling with an ACTIV trailer is an enjoyable experience. The new suspension alone makes towing an ACTIV trailer a breeze.


​Situated at the bottom of New Zealand, we know just how important it is to have quality transport.
