Local couple Peter and Sheila Bell have recently launched their new business, Marshland Trailers, hiring and servicing all kinds of trailers.

Having moved to the Wisbech area in 2006, the couple decided to set-up the business because they saw a demand locally for the services they now offer. They have invested over £40,000 in equipment and trailers to ensure they can offer a reliable, top-class service.

We can arrange Trailer insurance for £ 6.00 per Day through the NTTA , as long as you have a BE licence.

You will need a BE driving licence

Driving licence rules and what you can tow
The rules on what you can tow are different depending on when you passed your driving test.

 
Licences issued from 19 January 2013 - drivers passing a category B (car and small vehicle) test can tow:
  • small trailers weighing no more than 750kg
  • trailers weighing more than 750kg, where the combined weight of the towing vehicle and the trailer isn’t more than 3,500kg
  • If you want to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg, when the combined weight of the towing vehicle and trailer is more than 3,500kg, you’ll have to pass a further test and get B+E entitlement on your licence.
You’ll then be able to tow trailers up to 3,500kg.
 
Licences held from 1 January 1997 - If you passed your driving test after 1 January 1997 and have an ordinary category B (car) licence, you can drive either:
 
  • a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes or 3,500 kilograms (kg) Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM (with a combined weight of up to 4,250kg in total)
  • a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as it is no more than the unladen or ‘kerb’ weight of the towing vehicle (with a combined weight of up to 3,500kg in total)
  • For anything heavier you need to take a category B+E driving test.
