MAINTENANCE and MODIFICATIONS

MAINTENANCE

Regardless of what type of trailer you own it will require maintenance. Consumers can always save money by performing basic maintenance. In recent years this was proven. As fuel prices were on the rise and the economy became unstable, some customers tried to save by avoiding spending money on maintenance. This seemed ok for a couple of years. Then after a few years without maintenance, the trailers coming in for service were requiring more than just the norm. Instead of a standard bearing service and brake adjustment, neglected trailers may require bearing replacement and possibly a brake job. A normal maintenance cost of 150.00 had become a repair of 500.00 or more. All trailers have some basic components. Starting at the front of the trailer there is the coupler. Next is the frame and axles which include the wheel bearings and usually brakes. Each will have a system of lights and a floor. Although most trailers have more to them than just these items these are the basics.

p> Basic service on regular intervals will save you headaches downtime and money. Below is a chart to help you decide if your equipment is due for regular maintenance.

Regular Service Intervals

* Consumer Horse or Utility trailers 2 years or 10k miles
* Boat or Personal Watercraft trailers Annually (before winter storage)
* Commercial / Construction trailers Annually or 10k miles
* Over the Road / Hot Shot trailers Annually or 40k miles

(These are recommended regular service intervals. Other problems and those created by road hazards should be taken care of immediately to insure the safety of you, your cargo and other drivers on the road.)

MODIFICATIONS

We also have the ability to alter or add features to your trailer so that it will function better for you. There are quite a number of typical modifications we are asked to perform. We are asked to add brackets and racks of all kinds. We can move a wall or add a ramp or a door. If you can come up with an idea there is a good chance we can make your idea a reality. Here are some of the more common things we can do for you.
