Main thing is you've actually seen the product and are happy with the quality.

We use decimal minutes at work to show the cycle time, currently it's 1.44 which means a new car rolls off the line every 86.4 seconds!

Aviation uses decimal fractions of hours, hours/minutes rounded to nearest 5 minutes, and hours/minutes rounded to the nearest minute! Not at all confusing...

Indeed, I was happy with the look of the whole unit.
Unlike the little 2ft square erde trailer I spotted in Morrisons last night!!!!

Interested in a Ifor Williams GD64 braked. Seems to be the way to go.

I've just got an 5' x 4' unbraked from my next door neighbour for 30, needs some new woodwork and paint but it now means I can go to the tip with rubbish because council deemed my Ifor Williams 8' x 5' twin axle to big for taking rubbish in.

Had the same problem... When you turn up at the tip with a nice modern trailer on the back of a Hilux they just assume you're dumping builder's rubbish! 🤨

Cornwall Council is any trailer 6" and over need a permit, as do any pickup. Asked the question before loading my shed into the trailer....
