    Half Pipe Trailer FAQs

    What’s the difference between a scrap trailer and a half pipe trailer?

    Both half pipe and scrap trailers are ideal for use on construction and building projects, with Colson Trailers delivering straight to the desired location. Scrap trailers are used to fill with scrap materials from construction sites before sending them to be recycled. They have a high volume and are mainly used to dispose of scrap metals.

    Whereas half pipe trailers are designed for transportation rather than removal. Half pipe trailers reduce the price-per-ton transported, saving your business money when relocating materials. These trailers are more suited to heavier materials, given their strength and durability.


    So whether you are in the agricultural industry, construction or mining, by investing in a half pipe tipper trailer, you can transport your goods safely and securely.

    Why would I need a half pipe trailer?

    If you are looking to transport a high volume of dense materials from site to site, or to a construction area, half pipe trailers are the ideal choice. Given their low price-per-ton transported cost, they are affordable for every business. Half pipe trailers are known for their durability and strength, able to withstand a large volume of heavy loads without any hindrance to their performance.

    How long can I hire a half pipe trailer for?

    The standard period for half pipe trailer hire is 10 days, with the option to extend your hire week by week. If you have hired a half pipe trailer and it has already been delivered to your site, you still have the option to extend your hire period. Colson Trailers can arrange this all for you, simply contact us if you wish to hire a half pipe trailer or if you’d like to extend your hire period.

    What are half pipe trailers used for?

    Half pipe trailers are used for the transportation of heavy construction materials, to a building site or between locations. Companies may use them if dense metals or others matters need to be moved to a different site, due to their high durability and strength levels. These trailers are designed specifically for harsh environments, keeping production rates high and cost low. Materials are moved at high speeds, quickly taking a load to the new location for a low price.
