Why daily checks are so important

A trailer recovered to our worksop this morning shows just why daily checks are so important.

Why daily checks are so important

As explained by Ant, the trailer was recovered to our workshop after being stopped on the M5. If you look at the movement in the wheel you can see that the wheel bearings have collapsed. It is only a matter of time before the wheel parts company with the trailer.

The photos above show other areas of concern; lenses smashed, lights held on with bungee cords and worst of all the load it was carrying at the time it came to us. If that wheel had come off on the M5, the consequences could have been devastating.

Please, please, always carry out your daily checks before towing a trailer, no matter how far you are going.
