If you own and run your own trailer it can pay dividends if you are able to do some of your own mechanic work. If your suspension is playing up, for example, it is certainly a lot less expensive and can prove considerably more convenient to take out the damaged or broken suspension unit and replaced it with an appropriate make and model. If you have experience in mechanics then you could save yourself time, money, and trouble by making these repairs but you do need to be sure that you get the right parts and from a reliable source.
Trailers are really put through their paces and whether yours is packed full of furniture, crammed with rubbish, or being used to transport horses or other livestock, you will want to be certain that it is being transported both safely and in the best possible condition. Arriving at your destination to find damaged or injured trailer inhabitants can be heart-breaking as well as expensive.
Suspension units for trailers are likely to have to undergo some fairly serious shocks. As well as the weight of the trailer itself, there will be the weight of the trailer content. In most cases, there is a maximum weight that is given and this not only includes the weight of the unladed trailer but its contents as well. Bear this in mind when packing the trailer and be sure that you are under the limit.
When looking for new parts, you should ensure that you access the best suspension units with stub axles and suspension units with hubs but without having to pay over the odds. While you certainly want the best quality parts installed in your trailer to make sure it is comfortable, relatively easy to drive, and flexible, you don’t want to spend more than those parts are really worth.
Buy replacement suspension units from a company that is experienced and professional. This way, you will be able to ask for suitable guidance regarding what you are hoping to buy, what you need, and what you should be expected to pay for the items.
