Boat Trailer Repairs in the Brisbane area

Quite often at Holt Marine we find that while many boat owners spend countless hours fussing over their pride and joy, they can quite often forget to spend time on an equally as important piece of equipment – the boat trailer.  Pushed to the side and neglected, boat trailers can easily pick up wear and tear that often goes unnoticed until the last minute.  In today’s blog post, we will explore some common problems that can occur with boat trailers, and investigate how you can avoid Boat Trailer Repairs Brisbane.

Common Problems

As our clients have been bringing their boat trailers in to be serviced for over 30 years, we have developed a fairly good idea of the most common problems that can occur.  One of the main offenders that we see at Holt Marine is faulty and malfunctioning trailer lights.  There could be a number of reasons that is causing this, including wiring issues, poor connections between the trailer and the car, or the car itself. Another common problem that we see is springs and axles wearing, as well as the brakes performing inadequately.  These are all extremely important for both you and your vehicles safety, and any issue should be addressed immediately.

Prevention

One of the best ways to ensure that you don’t have any major issues with your trailer is to regularly maintain it by treating it like you would treat your own boat.  You should constantly hose down and clean your trailer after using it, to ensure that the integrity of the trailer remains true.  You should also test that all of the lights and connections are fully functional, and arrange a service every 12 months.
