The epitome of safety, style and strength, the Ifor Williams range of horse floats are highly regarded in the UK and Europe. Now they are available through East Coast Trailers, NSW.
Robert Clark, co-founder of East Coast Trailers explains, “Growing up on a farm in the UK I had a good knowledge of Ifor Williams as their range of trailers get used a lot in the Agriculture Industry, from livestock trailers, horse floats, general duty and tipper trailers.”

“This along with the factory being 50 miles from home meant that Ifor Williams was a household name.”

In 2006 when Robert’s family moved to the Central Coast of New South Wales to live he started looking around for a decent tipper trailer to use for building work.

“I couldn’t find one,” he says, “so I Googled “Ifor Williams” and found Bindoon Tractors in WA was the only importer for their trailers here in Australia.”

With East Coast Trailers business partner Eamon Corless, the pair started to look at the local market and realized there was a need for superior quality trailers at a reasonable price so they set about becoming an agent for Ifor Williams in NSW.

“This enabled us to be able to offer these high quality trailers to the East Coast of Australia, hence our trading name East Coast Trailers,” said Eamon.

Ifor’s experience of over 50 years in the agricultural industry convinced Robert and Eamon that their trailers were the right product for Australia.

A simple feature like a solid Aluminium floor can save the owner thousands of dollars over a horse float’s life, so Ifor Williams have incorporated this feature in their horse floats along with Composite Aluminium side.

Another very attractive feature of the horse floats is the higher than usual extending rear ramp with non slip rubber matting which gives a lower loading angle when leading your horse onto the float. This means less chance of a slip in messy or wet conditions or from a nervy horse and is just one of the many safety features of these floats.
