Trailers Unlimited Inc. was established in 1987, with roots in manufacturing their brand of cargo trailers and mobile office trailers in Edmonton. Today, they continue to lease and sell their original brand of lightweight, aerodynamic, and easily maneuverable trailers.
Purchasing or renting straight from a manufacturer such as Trailers Unlimited enables you to get the best price and servicing for its products. You won’t have to worry about any additional third-party company charges, since this is literally the company that built them.
Designed by two generations of owners, their Shuttle brand of fibreglass trailers aims to be the new industry standard. They are rust-proof, easier to tow behind your vehicle, and therefore improve your fuel efficiency and handling.
The idea to use fibreglass was derived from its use in luxury or exotic automobiles as well as boats. A few benefits from using this material include better temperature regulation, corrosion resistance, and is easier to maintain.
So whether you need to rent a cargo trailer to transport some things over the weekend or require a fleet for your business, Trailers Unlimited has a solution for you. While they make standard trailer sizes that you can rent or purchase, they can also make a custom-built trailer according to your specifications.
Their smallest cargo trailer offering is their SH2000-S4, which measures 8’L x 4’W x 5’H and although it’s not recommended to transport a motorcycle, it can suit most people’s utility trailer needs. They have a range of other pre-built models that can transport one or two motorcycles, and their largest offering is a massive 30’ x 8.3’ x 6.6’.
Their office trailers offer the finest in custom-built utility needs, whether you need a mobile office in an oil field or a customized utility trailer to haul your generator. You can opt for extra add-ons or upgrades such as a fold-down ramp, axle upgrade, side doors, electrical wiring, and even furnishings!
John Adria is a regular customer at Trailers Unlimited because of the service. He shares:
“I have rented at the Edmonton location a few times and the services is always great. Their lightweight enclosed trailers are a great alternative to a cube van.”

“A wonderful experience! From the first phone call with Eric Mody it was warm, professional, no-pressure. He provided answers for questions I did NOT realize I wanted until he provided them! When we finally met him and made a deposit on the dump trailer of our choice, he was just as lovely, engaging, informative as our first meet on the phone. Oh, the price is fantastic and the dump trailer? She is a beauty!”

“I found the staff at Allan Dale RV great to deal with. I purchased a Cargo Trailer and they were very accommodating and really down to earth kind of people. After the purchase, which was a great price. I found a small issue with the trailer. Informed Allan Dale RV of the issue, and they were completely understanding and went right to work to fix the issue.

Beothuck Trailers Ltd. was established in 1984 and has remained a family-owned and operated business located in Edmonton. Their business is focused on manufacturing trailers, servicing, and rentals.
With a fleet of over 80 rental units, Beothuck Trailers Ltd. offers several models of utility trailers. They can draft a rental contract that caters to your requirements, whether you need it for your business or just for a weekend haul.
Each trailer receives a rigorous inspection before leaving their facility with a complete checklist that staff will assess. Spare tires will also be provided but unfortunately, the necessary tools to change them will not be included.
Their smallest utility trailer offering measures 4’ x 6’ with a load capacity of up to 1,500 lbs while the largest is a 6′ x 12′ (Tandem Axle) which can carry up to 5,000 lbs. They only have five variants and these include utility trailers that are built to transport motorcycles or lawn tractors.
However, it’s important to note that some rental trailers are also prototypes of their fabricated units that are out for a test run in a “real world” application, according to the company. So when renting a trailer here, you’ll want to pay attention to the staff’s safety checks and ask any other questions you may have.
Don’t worry about the durability of the trailers because they’ve been manufacturing them for over two decades. The custom builds are made from tubular steel or wide flange beams with electric wiring in safety sealed junction boxes.
Regardless, the best way to ensure you get the best trailer that suits your business or personal needs is to get a customized fabricated trailer. Beothuck Trailers offers flatbeds and enclosed products among others which can be crafted according to your specified dimensions.
Brad Kenchington was thankful he discovered Beothuck Trailers and looks forward to future transactions with them. He shares:
“The staff is great here! Friendly, efficient and able to answer all your questions. This is a hidden jem for renting trailers of all sizes! Also noticed they do CVIP certifications and other repairs plus painting. I will try one of these services in the future!”

Ocean Trailer traces its humble beginnings back to 1981 when the Keay family started leasing highway trailers using their home as an office. Today, they have nine locations around Canada, serving almost every corner of their country with their trailers.
The Edmonton branch is also a service center with 20 bays capable of minor repairs and larger rebuild projects. They are CVI Licensed that can fabricate custom-made modifications and also functions as a fleet yard able to wash, refuel, and service tires, among others.
However, if you can’t make it to their service center, they can go to you or even help you find the nearest local repair shop. Ocean Trailer has a mobile service truck that can dispatch one of their certified and trained technicians to help you out no matter what time of day.
Now, if you’re looking for a large commercial flatbed or enclosed utility trailer, this is the company to go with. They offer variants from Wilson, Renn, and Doonan.
Some of the trailers are not available on-site, though, and need to be ordered from other locations, so be prepared for a lead time on delivery.
When it comes to their rentals, they only offer specialized trailers ranging from 27′ x 53′ Dry Freight Vans to larger 45′ x 53′ Flatdecks. These utility trailers can carry up to 40 tons of load and will be more than enough for any commercial application.
Sean Clarke, a regular client, attributes his business’ success to the relationship he has with Ocean Trailer. This is his story:
“I have been dealing with Will and the rest of the team at Ocean trailer for years. Without their support my business would not be where it is today. Having a person and team you depend on anytime be it rentals, unexpected repairs or just getting my CVIP done last minute due to an oversight on our end. Lol, Will and the Ocean Trailer family continue to impress”
CJ Lamoureux, another local business owner, uses Ocean Trailer for his transport needs as he writes:
“I utilize ocean for many brands of trailer parts to fuel my repairs and in house inventory. Even the super obscure items are typically ready and available. Whatever you need Mike is your guy. You don’t even have to know what you need because he already knows what you need.”

Flaman was established over 60 years ago, providing various machinery and equipment centred on agriculture. Their trailer division began in 1988 with roots in the purchase of a 5 bale carrier and swather transport, which then expanded to their offerings today.
They now carry a selection of flatdecks, enclosed trailers, dump trailers, and heavy-duty transport as the largest trailer dealer in Western Canada. They offer sales, repairs, rentals, and even used trailers as part of their services.
The Edmonton location has the advantage of being a service center and for carrying the entire product line of trailers which include utility trailers, enclosed cargo trailers, and specialty trailers, just to name a few. Oddly enough, they also carry the company’s line of exercise equipment which they’re more known for.
With over five brands of trailers to choose from, you’ll find products such as a 12-foot Oasis Utility Trailer with a 3,000lb capacity up to a 15-foot Aluma made from aluminum with safety chains. From single axle heavy duty utility trailers to those with tilting mechanisms, Flaman has it covered whether you need it to transport an ATV or farm equipment.
While they carry numerous brands of trailers and other equipment, Flaman does offer its own air tow utility trailer, which can raise or lower in less than 20 seconds. They can go all the way down to ground level so that you can even drive a forklift over it for transport.
When it comes to rentals, you’ll only have two utility trailers to choose from namely a 4’x6’ and a 6’x8’. If you’re just looking to transport some light to medium equipment, you can rent them for $50 and $60 a day respectively.
Cassandra Buit, a local business owner, may have had a rough start dealing with Flaman, but was pleased with how everything turned out. She writes:
“Tho we have had rough experiences with this company in the past. They were resolved threw their kind and generous CEO who we appreciate very much. If you have an issue I suggest you address it. I’m impressed with how the problem was resolved and we will continue to use flaman for our daily rentals in our business! Thanks”
