If you are investing in a trailer, it’s only natural for you to want it to last and serve you as best it can. How can you make sure that your used trailer will stand the test of time? What should you prioritize in your preliminary inspections? Allow us to help you narrow down a checklist for when it comes to used trailers for sale:

Start with the roof: Any long-term structural integrity will depend on how the roof holds. Check for leaks, moisture, moulds, cracks, rips and tears. Make sure there is no leakage or mould, as these can not only affect your machine in the long run but also your health.

Check the floor: You should make sure that the floor is strong, sturdy, and would not give away easily. Inspect the floor from the inside and from the undercarriage below. Make sure that there are no cracks, mould, rust or rot.

Inspect the tires: You do not want to spend on the tires of a big vehicle like a trailer. Check for any damage on the tires. Examine if it has any choppy wear and tears on the grooves, flat spots on the tread, or any sidewall defects like cuts, bulges, ripples, bruises, and the like.

Go around the body and exterior: Check the trailer walls for any delamination, bubbles or bulges. These are good indicators of underlying frame damage. They can tell you if the trailer has been in an accident. Enquire upon these findings and make sure you invest right.

Check the brakes and all their parts: Make sure the brake functions on the axles and check the pads, shoes, drums, rotors, and magnets of the brakes for any damage. Brakes are vital to ensure your vehicle operates safely.

Bearings and suspension are working properly: The wheel bearings essentially carry the entire weight of the trailer so it is recommended to check if they are lubricated and properly seated as well as if the leaf springs and spring hangers are free of cracks and signs of damage.

Electrical system and wiring: Check the trailer for proper lighting and find out the reason for any faults. A loose bulb or screw is easy to fix, but if faulty wiring is the cause, you may have to spend extra on repairs and replacements.

Ramp is free of cracks and faults: Make sure you check the trailer’s ramp - its length, width, strength, and straightness - and if it allows you to load the equipment you want to carry in your trailer. Look out for any cracks or repairs that may need to be fixed.

Ensure dealer’s reputation: A good and fair dealer will easily manage to stay in business for decades. The longer someone has been in the business, the greater number of clients they have served. Unethical practices put you out of business sooner.

Price: If a used trailer is priced like a brand-new one, you might as well consider buying a new trailer instead. The repairs and maintenance required on a used trailer can add up to or exceed the price of a new one.

Call us now to get used trailers for sale from an experienced dealer in Brampton. United Trailers will take care of your investment and ensure you get high-grade trailers that will be perfect for your needs.


The average lifespan of a trailer can range anywhere between 10 to 15 years and usually depends on the equipment model, how it’s been used and how well it's been maintained over the years. Well-maintained trailers can even last a good 25 years. The main points that affect the lifespan of a trailer are:

The brand: An elite brand that uses high-quality materials and craftsmanship will always offer far better performance and lifespan and cheaply made trailers often fall apart after only a year or two.

Open vs. enclosed: Open trailers will often have a slightly shorter lifespan compared to enclosed trailers.

Inspect the tires: You do not want to spend on the tires of a big vehicle like a trailer. Check for any damage on the tires. Examine if it has any choppy wear and tears on the grooves, flat spots on the tread, or any sidewall defects like cuts, bulges, ripples, bruises, and the like.

Treatment and maintenance: The more you abuse your trailer, the more wear-and-tear will occur over time. Being careless with the trailer and mistreating it can reduce its lifespan. With proper and regular maintenance, will only help you get more out of your investment. Touching up nicks or scratches before they turn to rust and washing and waxing a trailer can keep it looking as good as new. We recommend keeping your trailer inside or covered.

Regular trailer inspections: Annual inspections will keep your vehicle road legal and can help you catch and prevent mechanical problems before they turn into serious issues and extend the lifespan of a trailer.
