Quantum Trailers was founded by Eng. Joe Munene and registered as a private partnership company in the year 2009. It was later incorporated in 2013. The offices and workshop are located on Karen Langata road, 19km from Nairobi CBD. The company is a mechanical engineering SME enterprise that manufactures Light Duty Cargo (LDC) trailers for commercial and agricultural applications using any ordinary motor vehicle. Since inception, Quantum Trailers has been able to manufacture for both local and export consumption, more than 400(LDC) trailers. Our trailers utilize 98% locally available construction raw materials and skilled technical manpower. Our LDC road trailers are made from quality motor vehicle spare parts which we have re-engineered to produce strong, reliable and road worthy trailer vehicles. They have been tried and tested regionally for last 10 years, and are approved and licensed for public road use by NTSA.
Virtually all cars have built in provisions by the manufacturers for towing capacity. All cars are designed not only for human and goods carriage but also for goods TOWING. Manufacturers understand that it is more economical to pull a load instead of carrying it.
Pulling loads which are heavier than your car engine power rating can cause serious damages to your vehicle. Always refer to manufacturers specifications. Poorly mounted towing hitch done by Jua kalis can cause serious damage to your car and other road users in case of failure. Inexperienced drivers should never be allowed to pull a trailer without proper guidance.
Advance booking very important. Copy of your ID, and all your other personal contact details including a reference contact person. A refundable deposit of 5,000 to cover for any damages when in use is also a requirement.
