Road freight trailer lessor Schmitz Cargobull says it has seen
an increase in demand for ex-lease trailers, in the context of a
Europe-wide crash in new trailer sales.

Cargobull has reported an 18 percent year-on-year increase in
used trailer enquiries, with orders up 50 percent. 

“In the current financial conditions, refurbished trailers
clearly represent an attractive alternative to new models for a lot
of applications,” commented Brian Parkinson, general manager for
Schmitz Cargobull’s UK used sales division. 

As a result of the strong demand for used trailers, the
company’s finance arm, Cargobull Finance, now offer operating
leases on refurbished second-hand trailers.
