Rebuilding vs. Buying New: Revitalising Your Trailer.

Recent Project: Full Brake System Overhaul and More

In a recent job, we tackled a comprehensive rebuild of an Ifor Williams trailer, demonstrating the benefits of refurbishing. Here’s what we did:

  • Brake System Replacement: We started by replacing the entire braking system, including new brake shoes. Ensuring your trailer has a reliable braking system is crucial for safety and performance.
  • Trailer Towing Coupling/Hitch: The towing coupling, or hitch, was also replaced. This component is essential for secure attachment to your vehicle, and a new hitch ensures a firm, dependable connection.
  • New Wheel and Tyre Assemblies: Finally, we fitted the trailer with a new set of wheel and tyre assemblies. This upgrade improves the trailer’s stability and handling, making it safer and more efficient on the road.

Why Choose a Rebuild?

Opting for a rebuild has several advantages:

  • Cost Savings: Rebuilding is often cheaper than buying a new trailer, allowing you to extend the life of your current equipment without the high cost of a new purchase.
  • Customisation: Rebuilding allows you to update specific parts and systems, tailoring the trailer to your exact needs.
  • Reduced Downtime: With our stock of parts, we can complete rebuilds quickly, getting your trailer back in service faster than waiting for a new one.
