About Us

How We Got Our Start

Chris and Angela Metcalfe established Southwest Trailers in 2003 in Wagga Wagga, NSW to manufacture trailers based on their customers’ requirements. At Southwest Trailers, we make and sell a complete range of trailers for specific and general applications, from 6x4 box trailers to tool tops, stock crates, motor bikes, horse floats and up to 4.5-tonne heavy-duty trailers. 

Southwest Trailers is a family business that has been established for more than a decade. Chris Metcalfe runs the workshop with the help of his father, whilst Peter and Chris' wife, Angela, run administration. 

Chris says "Southwest Trailers’ specialty is custom-made trailers, particularly for tradesmen and farmers. We have the experience and capability to make quality trailers for specialised purposes and to meet the customers' specific needs." Chris said that word of mouth amongst tradesmen was working well for them. Tradesmen appreciate the quality tool tops and the ability they have to make them just how they need them for their specific job and the way they work.

Priding ourselves on custom-building the highest-quality trailers for the average tradesman and farmer, the staff at Southwest Trailers carries out all custom orders at the Bomen Road workshop in Bomen, NSW. 

Southwest Trailers encourages a friendly relationship with their clients, who are invited to inspect their orders throughout the building process. We believe strongly in doing things once, and doing them right! 

Chris says that he has found in recent times that, "For farmers, trailers have become a lower cost means of carting materials and stock rather than a dedicated truck." In fact, recently Southwest Trailers donated a stock crate to Mt. Austin High School's agricultural department. Being an integral part of the community, and putting something back into it, is important to Chris and Angela. "We have donated trailers to a range of charities and worthwhile causes," says Angela. "We see it as part of our role in the community to support worthy organisations." 

Southwest Trailers provides a large range of trailer spare parts, and we even have trailers available for hire. Ring Chris or Angela Metcalfe for ordering your trailers or just for general advice, today.
