Poor truck and trailer maintenance can result in catastrophic accidents or breakdowns, and in more extreme cases, can cause a trailer to become detached from the towing vehicle.
Make sure that while you’re on the road you’re as safe as possible – and that includes regular maintenance checks and repairs to your trailer if needed.
