Identifying Quality Trucks and Trailers for Sale in South Africa

Finding quality trucks and trailers for sale should not be a difficult task. If you’re in the market for some new or used trucks and trailers, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Truck And Trailer Requirements

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to choosing a truck or trailer. You’ll need to decide what equipment best suits the intended tasks / projects you have in mind.

Begin by asking the following questions:

  • What sort of load capacity will you need?
  • Will you need additional equipment to keep your load wet / dry / safe?
  • How far and at what speed will the truck or trailer be traveling?
  • Do you have sufficient storage to ensure the longevity of the truck or trailer, and if not, can you consider something smaller / bigger?

There are many different types of trucks and trailers, perfect for specific jobs. It’s important to ensure the following basic requirements for each before deciding to purchase:

  • Check that all the lights are working and that the wiring isn’t faulty. Test the hazards, indicators, lights, brights and brake lights.
  • Ensure that the tyres have a decent tread and that there are spares available.
  • Test the brakes, and the handbrake on the truck you’re testing.
  • Ensure that you are well equipped with emergency supplies. Do you have a jack that is suitable for your trailer load? Do you have equipment that will work for both your truck and the trailer?
