DanHIRE Trailers ROADSIDE CHECK

Representing NTTA this turned out to be amazing with a large number of Trailers being stopped by the traffic unit.

WOW!

No breakaway cables  

No brakes  

Badly worn tyres 

Loose couplings and torn or missing coupling bellows 

Lights not working

Number plates missing

This really shows how important it is to have a well serviced and maintained trailer when you are going about your work and towing.

NTTA  are working hard to bring in more trailer laws, at present as there are no MOTs on trailers or Caravans.

During a full day of checks only one trailer was found to be in good order.

DanHIRE Trailers are a Quality Secured Accredited member of NTTA and offer FREE Trailer Safety Checks.
