Servicing and Repairing Trailers

Lowell's Auto Repair Handles Trailer Repair

Serving and repairing trailers for cars and trucks involves maintaining and fixing the components of trailers that are designed to be towed by vehicles. These trailers can be used for a variety of purposes, such as transporting cargo, equipment, or vehicles themselves.

When it comes to servicing trailers, there are several key components that need to be regularly checked and maintained. These include the trailer’s tires, brakes, lights, and hitch. Tires need to be properly inflated and checked for wear and damage, while brakes need to be checked to ensure they are functioning correctly. Lights must be checked for proper functioning and replaced as needed, and the hitch must be regularly lubricated to ensure it operates smoothly.

In addition to regular maintenance, trailers may also need to be repaired when parts wear out or become damaged. Some common repairs include replacing worn or damaged tires, repairing or replacing brakes, fixing wiring and electrical components, and replacing damaged hitch components. Trailer repair can be complex, so it’s important to have a trained professional handle the repairs to ensure they are done correctly and safely.

In Minnesota, there are several types of trailers that are commonly used for personal purposes, including:

  1. Utility trailers: These are small, open trailers that are typically used to transport lawn equipment, camping gear, or other household items. They are often lightweight and easy to tow.

  2. Boat trailers: With Minnesota’s many lakes, boat trailers are a popular choice for those who enjoy boating and fishing. These trailers are designed to transport boats to and from the water, and can come in a variety of sizes to accommodate different types of boats.

  3. Snowmobile trailers: During the winter months, snowmobile trailers are a common sight here. These trailers are used to transport snowmobiles to different locations, and can be open or enclosed depending on the owner’s preference.

  4. Horse trailers: For those who own horses, horse trailers are a necessity for transporting them to shows, competitions, or other events. We can help you with these trailers whether they are small and basic or large and luxurious, depending on your needs and budget.

  5. Travel trailers: Travel trailers are essentially mobile homes that can be towed by a vehicle ranging from small pop-up campers to large, luxurious RVs. With Minnesota’s many beautiful state parks and outdoor destinations, travel trailers are a popular choice for those who enjoy camping and exploring the great outdoors.
