How often do I need to get my trailer serviced?

It is extremely important that it your trailer is maintained by a qualified trailer mechanic. Trailers which are in daily use such as commercial or plant trailers, we recommend they should be serviced every 6 months or so. Where trailers are not on the road every day but are frequently used we recommend a service every 12 months.

Is it necessary to keep my trailer clean?

Maintaining and keeping your trailer clean is important as it will enhance the trailers lifetime and give you a higher resale value when you go to sell or trade in. It is fine to use a power washer on your trailer provided a gentle chemical or detergent is used. It is important to remember that hard abrasive chemicals should not be used as these can damage the protective coating already on your trailer.
