Our drawbar service and inspection plan is offered to fleet operators using VBG drawbar equipment.
In recent years the number of drawbar trailers on the road has increased greatly. As with semi trailers the connection between the prime mover and trailer is a very safety critical area and the consequences of a trailer becoming detached from a prime mover are potentially very serious. We believe therefore that the safe operation and proper monitoring of the condition of couplings is of vital importance.
For a number of years Turners Commercials have been providing a service consisting of regular inspections and preventative maintenance of couplings and trailer eyes. Below is a summary of what we offer.
Regular coupling and trailer drawbar eye inspections and servicing carried out at the customers premises (usually every 6 or 12 weeks).
With our range of specialist tools and equipment we are able to undertake almost any repair on site quickly and efficiently. For example: The removal of an old coupling and fitting of a complete new coupling can be done in less than 2 hours. To remove an old mechanism and fit new complete with new bushing can be done in less than 1 hour. Thus keeping vehicle down time to a minimum.
Currently we are able to offer this service to customers within a radius of approximately 70 miles from our base but do please contact us if you are interested.
