2020 Trailer Servicing

The Importance of Regular Trailer Servicing

With the authorities finally crunching down on unsafe trailers being towed in the UK, it really is crucial to make sure the trailer you are towing is up to the task. Safety is always our biggest concern here at Coventry Trailer Hire. We offer affordable trailer servicing in the West Midlands.

Trailers, just like cars, are on the UK roads at speeds of up to 60mph whilst carrying loads in excess of 2500kg. Halting a fully loaded 3500kg trailer from 60mph with drum brakes is a lot harder than stopping a 1600kg vehicle with modern brake calipers and discs. It is crucial to ensure your trailers brakes are working properly and that your wheel bearings are in good condition. Ignoring trailer maintenance will cost lives, ensure your trailer would pass a theoretical MOT type inspection.

If your trailer is involved in a road traffic accident and is found to have a mechanical defect or even just a problem with the trailer’s electrics then it could lead to a Police investigation whereby your trailer could be examined to ensure it is in a safe road worthy condition.  Stay safe whilst towing and ensure your trailer is regularly maintained and serviced.
