We buy all types of curtainside trailers, also known as ‘curtainsiders’. Though these semi-trailers have a relatively simple structure (essentially being flatbed trucks with square frames along the sides), the structure forms a skeleton that allows the creation of false walls and a roof that can be secured tightly. In turn, this creates different sections that can be loaded or unloaded from the side.
Curtainsiders allow for freight to be loaded from the side, as well as from the rear. While trailers typically carry single loads of large dimensions, a curtain sider can carry various loads, giving the operator a great deal of flexibility. Also, each compartment’s curtains can be retracted to load or unload items with ease, which simplifies partial deliveries — the old age limitations of “first on/last off” loading is now well and truly in the past!
Euroliners are also multi-purpose trailers, helping to make the process of loading/unloading smooth and straightforward. They are often described as curtainsiders that feature a sliding roof, sliding curtains, solid rear doors, and side boards. They allow loading and discharging through the rear doors, sliding curtains and the sliding roof, making them ideal for multi-delivery shipments. We are always looking to buy euroliners and curtainsiders, no matter the age, condition, or year. If you’re looking to sell yours quickly for cash, please complete our simple valuation form above.
Any modern curtainsider will give you various strategies for generating faster amounts of load time. First of all, you can come from either side and have the curtains drawn back. In doing so, you can begin to load, using forklifts, or manpower, loading the truck as quickly as possible. Curtainsiders come in many different sizes, styles, materials, and colours. Still, whether your existing model is just a few years old or has travelled across the globe for several decades, we’d be very interested in making you an offer today.
Most curtainsiders have clamps on the bottoms of the curtains, all of which can be secured to the base. They are locked in place so that even in high winds, there is very little movement. The curtains’ quality is critical to haulage companies, as is the ability to speed up the loading/unloading process because it helps generate more revenue for the business and make multiple deliveries on one run.
The curtainsider is recognised as the transportation industry’s ultimate everyday workhorse. It’s reasonably light, easy to load through the sides and rear, easy to repair, maintain and service – and it’s highly reliable. Curtainsiders are ideal for operators using forklifts to load (predominantly from the side; perhaps without a loading bay facility) so they are very versatile in this respect. Curtainsider trailers are a popular choice for companies looking to transport their goods because they come with many great features such as:
- Removable panels on both sides of the trailer that you can use for loading or unloading cargo
- A ramp on one side of the trailer makes it easier to load long items like lumber, poles or pipes
- A folding rear door allows you to drive right up next to your car so you don’t have far to walk when it’s time to move your items into storage or another location
