Trailer servicing and maintenance

 

Trailer servicing and maintenance is carried out by our NTTA (National Trailer & Towing Association) IMI (Institute of Motor industry) accredited engineers. We service horseboxes, cattleboxes, general purpose trailers, car transporter trailers, plant and tippers.

Do you know that these offences will cost you far more than a trailer service.

Faulty or non-existent brake-away cable
Un-roadworthy tyres
Faulty or non existent brakes on a trailer over 750kg
Faulty lights on your trailer
Incorrect number plate position
If a dangerous or un-roadworthy trailer is involved in an incident, your insurance could be invalid

A Kits-n-Bits trailer service will give you the peace of mind that you are towing a safe and legal trailer.

Frequency of Trailer Servicing and Maintenance - Recommendations by NTTA

The Frequency of Trailer Servicing and Maintenance very much depends on type and frequency of usage, but an outline guide could be as follows:

  • Daily or before each journey – certain checks are essential for safety and are the responsibility of the trailer operator.
  • After the first 600 miles (1000 km) – essential for new trailers or if new brake linings and/or bowden cables are fitted.
  • Every 3000 miles (5000 km) – three monthly for commercial / industrial trailers intensive usage, either by mileage towed or type of application and including boat trailers that are immersed in water.
  • Every 6000 miles (10,000kms) – annually for caravans and leisure trailers.  Six monthly for commercial/industrial trailers – based on “average” use.
