About us

FREETRAILER IS A DANISH CONCEPT THAT LETS YOU BORROW TRAILERS AND CARGO BIKES FOR FREE

We focus on the customer experience

Since our beginning in 2004 Freetrailer has worked hard to provide a sharing economy solution that benefits everyone. The idea is as simple today, as it was back then: to let anyone who needs a trailer or electric cargo bike lend one for free.

At Freetrailer we work according to the principle: We make sharing easy! Our award-winning Freetrailer app makes this sharing principle easier than ever, with users able to pick up and return trailers and eBikes themselves with our self-service concept.

IKEA, Silvan, ILVA and many other partners have already joined our mission. All of our partners help our mission by providing access to our trailer service at their stores. Meaning users never have to look too far when they need to borrow a Freetrailer!

Sounds too good to be true? Watch the video below to see how “Lending a trailer with the Freetrailer app” works.

Freetrailer was born from an idea that originated from the world of sharing economy, and has now grown into an international company. 

We strive to think differently and develop ideas that make transport from A to B as easy as possible. We know that people have less time and want to spend their money wisely. At Freetrailer, convenience is the most important thing we can offer the customer. A simple solution is a free solution. 

Freetrailer has established and expanded a trailer rental market where customers can borrow a trailer for free and partners can promote their business, and thereby get more customer visits and increase sales.

IKEA was the first company to partner up with Freetrailer. The concept was such a great success that Freetrailer is now the leader in the trailer rental market in Denmark. The company expanded to Sweden in 2006, Germany in 2013 and Norway in 2015.

Freetrailer in brief

Freetrailer was founded in 2004 as a sharing economy platform intended to make it easy for consumers to rent a trailer. Thanks to the user-friendly app, todays’ consumers can manage their trailer rental themselves. Over 5,5 million people and counting have already used our Freetrailer app.

Freetrailer works with a two-part growth plan in which reinforcing the existing home markets comprises one part while further internationalisation of the concept makes up the other.
