Court Farm Garage is proud to be your local main dealer for Bateson trailers.
Established in 1934, Bateson Trailers have manufactured many thousands of trailers for varied applications. We are large enough to manufacture quantities of quality trailers at competitive prices and small enough to modify designs and produce special trailers based on over 100 standard models.
Their design experience, utilising 3D CAD and modern production machinery including laser cutting, CNC steel forming and robot welding has enabled them to manufacturer an extensive range of trailers which combine exceptional strength with a low unladen weight and excellent stable towing characteristics.
All trailers are manufactured to comply with the latest European regulations and have been inspected by the VCA and granted European Whole Vehicle Type Approval. A certificate of conformity is supplied free with every trailer to permit registration in all European countries (registration is not required in the UK).
Trailers do not have to be fitted with brakes until the gross weight exceeds 750 kg, or if the weight of the trailer and load does not exceed half the weight of the towing vehicle. This has many benefits, the trailer cost is much less and maintenance is greatly reduced.
Bateson Livestock Trailers have been in production for over 70 years during which time they have developed continuously to keep abreast of ever changing legislation with regard to motor vehicles and the transport of animals.
We have taken care to keep the trailers as simple and light as possible without sacrificing strength in order to cope with the harsh environment in which they may operate.
This range of general purpose trailers has been designed to offer maximum strength with a low unladen weight, combined with modern appearance and safe, stable towing characteristics. All models have a hot dipped galvanised steel chassis with 2mm thick pre-galvanised steel sides 300mm deep and an 18mm phenol coated non-slip plywood floor.
Platform trailers are manufactured in three weight ranges, 2 tons, 2.6 tons and 3.5 tons and body lengths from 2.5 metres to 5 metres and up to 7 metres as specials. Standard widths are 1.5, 1.8 and 2 metres but can be manufactured to 2.1, 2.3 and up to a maximum of 2.5 metres wide. Trailers 4.3 metres and longer are available with a sloping beaver tail, or with full hydraulic tilt and ramp door.
The Bateson range of hydraulic tilt vehicle transporters have proved very popular and successful for many years. The trailer is fully welded from 2.5 mm steel sheet and hot rolled sections then hot dipped galvanised in one piece providing an extremely strong trailer with a low unladen weight
Our range of van trailers has been developed over many years with different models added in response to customers requests. Using a trailer of this type will double the capacity of a van or it can even be replaced, towing with a car or 4 x 4. There is no road tax or M.O.T. offering a very economical method of transporting goods. We have a range of sizes and capacities to suit most towing vehicles.

With the introduction of EU type approval it is often uneconomical for companies to manufacture their own trailer chassis for fixed equipment, generators, compressors, pumps and tanks etc. Bateson Trailers have, over the years, manufactured hundreds of special trailers individually designed to meet customers specific requirements. We have a vast experience and can advise on the viability of any particular project with full European type approval
There is a vast range of spares for nearly every trailer that Bateson Trailers have built, and standard parts like brake components, lamp units, mudguards, wheels and tyres etc will be often suitable for other makes, at competitive prices.
