Caravan & Trailer Service
Is your caravan or trailer costing you money?
Bring it into On The Move Mechanical Repairs for a comprehensive service.
Caravans and trailers (including standard trailers, boat trailers and horse floats) need regular servicing and maintenance to ensure they are safe and will not adversely impact your driving or your stopping distance and to ensure they do not increase the amount of fuel you use. (Yes - we can service boats too).
Wheel bearings, brakes and running gear are common areas of concern when it comes to the safety of your trailer or caravan and these should be checked at least once a year to ensure they are operating safely and correctly.
Problems with the wheel bearings or brakes can make the caravan or trailer difficult to control when towing and can significantly increase your stopping distance and use of fuel, particularly under heavy loads. The team at On The Move Mechanical Repairs can check your brakes and bearings are up to the job and let you know if they require replacing or upgrading.
Running gear, couplings, lights, bushes, wiring, springs, latches, chassis mounts and cables sould all be considered when having a trailer or caravan serviced. The list can become much more complex. depending on the type of vehicle you own and the way you tend to use it.
Many trailer and caravan manufacturers recommend towed vehicles should be serviced every 10,000km or 12 months. If you do a lot of towing your caravan or trailer it pays to keep it running smoothly to help minimise fuel expenditure in addition to safety concerns.
Even if you don't use your trailer or caravan regularly you should still have it serviced at least once per year.
Lack of use brings it's own problems and requirements and you should still have your towed vehicle checked on a regular basis to ensure components have not failed or deteriorated without your knowledge.
