Everything You Need To Know About Pantech Trailers
How many times have you found yourself thinking how nice (…helpful, or even convenient) it would be if you owned a trailer? If you own a vehicle, then the chances are pretty good you’ve thought it at least once … and you can find a healthy measure of consolation in knowing that it’s not a thought that’s exclusive to farmers and tradies. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you own a 70-hectare ranch outside the city or a 70 square meter apartment in the centre of the city, a trailer’s just as handy for picking up a few pieces of antique furniture for a brand new sitting room as it is for carting a couple of bikes and suitcases off to the beach for the weekend.
If you’re wrestling with the thought of owning one, let’s take a quick moment to consider what ownership really entails.
The Right Combination
What most people visualize when they think about privately-owned trailers are either tiny open-deck lawnmower trailers or massive cargo trailers. There’s another category, however, that spans the gap between them. Handily positioned between these two extremes, a pantech trailer is a fully enclosed alternative for people who regularly have things to move, but don’t need a trailer with a pitch-sized capacity to do it.
Lightweight, strong, and most importantly, a perfect provider of protection from the elements as well as prying eyes and fingers, pantechs have the distinction of being tough enough for tradies and other professionals, yet straightforward enough for non-professionals to load, operate, and maintain.
When all the features and advantages are laid out, it’s easy to see how the right combination of design and construction has been critical in creating a range of Australian-built pantechs that are suitable for any need.
It’s All in the Details
When you get right down to it, there’s much more to a well-built pantech than a top and 4 convenient side panels. It’s a complete, well-detailed package of quality and concept that begins from the frame up.
The Strong Foundation
A chassis that’s manufactured from high tensile RHS and SHS is the starting point for a 100% zinc galvanized framed and sided pantech that’s not only strong, but designed to face a lifetime of elements without the slightest hint of concern ever about rust or corrosion. Undercoating and sealing ensure that absolutely no moisture can enter from the bottom, and a choice of either slip-proof checker plate flooring or a matching galv-enamel colour coating round out the lower portion of a trailer that’s built to last.
High-quality pantechs come in sizes ranging from a 6′ x 4′ handy-haulier, right up to a healthy-hauling 12′ x 6′. Of course, size is relative: it depends on the required amount of carrying capacity, as well as the GVW rating of the vehicle that’ll be towing it. A superior trailer manufacturer will not only have the offerings to meet an array of sizing possibilities, but can also provide customized wheel and tyre, braking, hitching, and electrical solutions based on size. In short, you’re guaranteed of having a trailer that fits your requirements – not the other way around.
The Body Beautiful
An enclosed cargo area that’s fully welded and water-resistant, yet easily accessible from any angle – that’s what makes a pantech special. What makes them unique, however, are their lightweight aluminium bodies in heights ranging from 1200mm to 1800mm, and completely customizable choices in rear and side door combinations outfitted with stainless steel hinges, gas struts and T-lock handles. And dressing one out with either checker plate siding or a full spray of any of 12 enamel colours are the final touches on a perfect pantech package that looks just as smart as it is serviceable.
A Trailer of Your Own
Pantechs are amazingly practical bits of equipment when it comes to getting things done. And the truth is, even if you only need one for casual or occasional use, the advantages that come with owning your own are as solid as the frame one’s built one.
You’ll put an immediate end to arranging, waiting, and paying for someone else to transport things for you … things that more than likely already belong to you.
Facing the inconvenience of having to rent a larger vehicle (or trailer) just to accommodate luggage on family vacations or to transport your arts and crafts collection to every expo will come to a full stop.
It’s yours – you own it – which means you have unlimited access to it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year without having to reserve it, book it, or return it at a certain date and time.
In fact, what you’re very likely to discover is that the cost of ownership is significantly less than recurring rental or hiring fees, even over an intermediate timeframe… and that’s without factoring in the immediate availability.
After doing the math – and after you inevitably realize that once you have a trailer that you’ll also find more reasons to use it – the question will transform almost instantly from, “why would I buy a trailer?” to, “why didn’t I buy a trailer sooner?”
At the end of the day, when it comes to the merits of premium trailer ownership, it’s hard to overlook the advantages a pantech trailer brings to the table.
It’s their reliability, ease of use, and suitability for any purpose that have enabled them to become the go-to trailer for anyone who commonly needs to haul stuff, but wants the flexibility of doing it on their own terms.
If that sounds like you, now’s the time to stop wrestling with the idea of ownership, and to take the steps to make it happen. A genuine Australian manufacturer will understand precisely what you need, and they can get you set up and hauling in no time.
