Owner operators of hot shot trailers and car haulers typically have everything on the line with every single contracted haul. One expensive unexpected but preventable repair can put many of you temporarily and sometimes even permanently out of the game.
Poor mechanical service, neglected trailer maintenance or not being mechanically inclined will usually show up on side of the highway with your customer's load on the disabled trailer as you pay a steep premium for tow service.
M.S. Trailer understands the importance of providing thorough inspections and properly communicating the status and possible outcomes of mechanical issues with the customer to allow us to return the trailer to the owner in a safe operating condition.

Equalizers, leaf springs and even bolts wear out.
Look very closely at the bolts securing the equalizer. You may be shocked to see that one or more bolts are on the way to shearing in half with the bolt holes on the equalizer wallowed out.
Planned inspections including removing the tires for proper inspection can help save lives from accidents plus save you a lot of grief and money.
