Custom-built with quality

Custom Transport Equipment’s managing director Darren Cook has over 22 years experience in designing and manufacturing custom-built semi trailers and tiltslides. 
Together with the rest of the team at Custom Transport Equipment, they build a variety of semi-trailers as well as rigid bodies ranging from drop deck to floats, deck wideners to rigid/semi tiltslides to name just a few.
All equipment is built from the ground up and is designed, engineered and manufactured to suit client requirements.  CTE produces a product of high quality and standard that its customers are satisfied with.
Being a small to medium-sized company means that CTE is able to work closely with its clients, allowing them the opportunity to have  input into their own product.  The company’s client base reaches far and wide across the country having delivered products through New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia where there is a high demand for specialised products.

Notable Designs

Some of CTE’s notable trailers include a 48’ semi tiltslide trailer for Ian and Casey Caire of Beaudesert Qld.  The trailer is fitted with two winches, 6mm hardox floor, container pins and more.  The unit is fully remote-operated and has been designed to carry 40’ containers whilst in the tilted position, which minimises overhang at the rear.  The trailer tilts to 22 degrees and has a loading angle of 8.5 degrees.  It’s fitted with 17.5” axles, alloy rims and has a deck height of 950mm.
Casey couldn’t be happier with the unit.  “Custom Transport Equipment has gone over and above the call of duty,” says Casey.
“The level of customer service has been incredible and the trailer is wonderful.  Not only is it stable and strong, it is a quality product in every way – in design and finish. 
“The craftsmanship is outstanding and the attention to detail and the finish is above and beyond.  I would recommend Custom Transport Equipment to anyone and everyone.
“I can honestly say I think we have the best trailer in Brisbane.”

Jason Henry of Windmill Ag also approached CTE to manufacture a deck-widening trailer to accommodate agricultural machinery and earthmoving equipment.  After noticing the product finish and professionalism of Custom Transport Equipment’s work, Jason decided that CTE was the company for him.
The trailer was built with wheel wells fitted in the floor to keep the height of headers/combines below five metres.  This trailer is utilised to service the company’s branches as well as general hire.
The trailer is 45’ plus hydraulic rear ramps and widens out to 3.5 metres.  Both decks are separated from one control bank in the centre at the rear of the trailers.  It is also fitted with top deck ramps and four-way keyhole tie points in the floor for ease of securing loads.
“We purchased this trailer in November and it has just had its first service,” says Jason.
“It has been excellent and we are very happy with the trailer.  I have already recommended Custom Transport Equipment to other people.”
