Business Inabox allows you to take your business to your customer.
Being a ‘mobile’ business gives you more opportunities to reach your customer base effectively. Should you choose to set up and trade from a location that proves to be unfavourable, a fast evaluation can take place and you can pack up, hook up and relocate to an alternative, more profitable location.
Business Inabox also enables you to participate in more trade fairs and shows, giving you the freedom to choose the most prominent location at the fair, and not relying on a poor quality, badly placed trade stand. Once you have arrived at the trade show, setting up couldn’t be easier, there will be no lugging and carrying heavy boxes of stock from your van to your stand, you can simply and quickly park up, unhook, open up and begin trading within minutes.

Having a towable trailer rather than a full van means you’re able to unhitch your trailer and drive to the supermarket or restaurant or simply leave your site for any reason. Or if you have staff members who work for you, you can tow the trailer to the desired location, unhitch and leave your staff to continue trading.

The initial cost of setting up a business can put even the most experienced entrepreneur under pressure, especially those looking at cost of premises, legal cost of taking on a lease, cost of a shop ‘re-fit’ and advertising.
Business Inabox is a cost effective way to set up a new venture. When attending a show the trailer becomes your stand at the event which reduces your costs. It eliminates the cost of hiring a stand; only your pitch fee would apply.
No legal fees
No fixed permanent shop refit
No expensive hotel fees
Ready made, purpose built trade stand
High resale value
If one business venture is not performing to your expectations, or if markets change, you could re-wrap, re-fit and re-brand your trailer at minimal cost to launch a new business model. You are not tied to retail premises for a set period-giving You freedom to experiment.
By giving the interior a general retail fit, the trailer becomes adaptable. It could be used for one kind of business in the winter and another in the summer, therefore making the trailer changeable to suit seasonal demands.
Trading from poor quality market stalls is difficult when the weather is against you. Business Inabox gives you a sturdy, weatherproof retail area where your customers can browse and shop in warm and dry conditions. Should the weather be more favourable you can adapt your retail area by using the optional awning/safari room.
Attending trade fairs can often mean storing many thousands of pounds worth of stock within the trailer causing concerns over security. Accommodation within the trailer means you are living on top of your stock which gives you extra peace of mind. Trackers and CCTV are regularly fitted as optional extras into our Business Inabox trailers for added security.
As well as having your own peace of mind, Ifor Williams Trailers have a commitment to trailer security. Each trailer is fitted with an ID plate which has a unique serial number etched on to it
