Your trailer is made of many parts, big and small, from wheels to bearings, couplers, lights, suspension, jacks and suspensions and more, all of which work in tandem to get you going smoothly. Like any other vehicle part, they will wear down with routine use. Timely repairs and replacement can help you keep your trailer in a good condition for decades to come. You need specialized experts for timely inspection, damage prevention, and minimizing expensive replacement costs. Here are a few tips from the trusted professionals at Beothuck Trailers, Edmonton’s oldest and most trusted trailer shop.
Replacing Exclusive Parts: If your trailer parts are old or your model is exclusive, it may be hard and expensive to source them. Repairs may cost more but may be cheaper than a full replacement. Say, for example, you switch your worn out hubs and stubs with more easily sourced new parts, replacing those upgrades will be easier and cheaper the next time. Also, it is affordable to replace smaller units than the entire product.
Replacing Parts that Come in Pairs: When you have one trailer part inspected, make sure you have the others looked into as well. If you keep calling for help over and over again, costs escalate. However, if you have all parts inspected at once, labour costs could go down because you will be calling the professionals only once. If a part in a pair breaks down, replace both at the same time or the other part may give way soon. For example, replacing one brake and leaving the other intact reduces overall functionality. Make sure both brakes are replaced with a pair of new ones.
Check the Entire Part, Not Just an Area: It is good to look at all options before considering repairs. Sometimes, it is better to replace the entire part than fix a small area. A bent part, for instance, is better to be replaced than repaired, but experts are in the position to weigh that decision better. They can also help you factor in the full cost of part replacement coupled with labour costs and research to help you determine what will save you most time and money.
