Top reasons to get your trailer serviced with us
It’s recommended leisure trailers are serviced every 12 months and commercial trailers every 6 months or 10000 miles. Why is this so important?
A wide range of trailer parts are inspected.
We offer a 20-point check for your trailer which covers wheels, electrics, brakes & lights as well as inspection of the general condition of the body. Faulty lights, brakes and worn tyres are the most common faults found on trailers but with a thorough service check even obscure issues and faults will be found while they can be easily rectified before creating more costly issues.
Road incidents involving trailers are on the increase.
If you’re towing a trailer you need to be aware how dangerous towing a neglected trailer can be. There have been numerous accidents involving trailers in states of disrepair and statistics are starting to show an increase in the percentage of road incidents caused by trailers. Ensuring your trailer is road safe decreases the risk of damage being caused to your trailer, any items you carry, as well as yourself and others on the road!
Spot checks show most trailers on the road have faults.
It may seem as if everything ticking along nicely with your trailer but in an example of officers stopping towing vehicles the NTTA noted that only 12 out of 34 were clear of faults. Many of the drivers were issued with fines and some even got points on their licence. A visual inspection by a trained professional like our free safety check will highlight issues you may be unaware of before they create problems.
