Trailer Maintenance and Repair

Our Semi Trailer Repair services include:

Roll Up Doors

To keep your goods safe, make sure your truck’s doors are strong and working properly. At Status Truck & Trailer Repair, we understand the urgent need to get your trucks and trailers back on the road when a door is damaged or working improperly.

Floors

The floor is an important part of your truck/trailer. A trailer floor highly determines the safety and delivery of your goods. Trailer floors can be made of timber, aluminum, stainless steel or other strong metals.

Lights

Lights are one of the most important parts of any vehicle. This is especially so if you travel early in the morning or late in the evening. The lights provide illumination for you as you drive. In trucks, the lighting system is made up of front, sides, rear, and top lights. The lights are designed to let you drive safely after dark. To increase your safety and the safety of other road users, make sure your truck’s lights are in good working condition.

Brakes

A brake is a mechanical device for inhibiting a truck’s motion. Unlike car brakes, truck brakes have to be bigger and more powerful to stop the truck and its load. Most brakes use friction to convert kinetic energy into heat. The brakes store braking heat in the disc brake or drum brake when braking and then conduct it to the air gradually.
Faulty brakes put you and other road users at a great risk. Faulty brakes increase the chances of collisions.

Suspension

The suspension is a collective name given to the system of shocks, springs, and linkages that connect a truck to its wheels and allow relative motion between the two. The suspension system has the following main purposes: keeping the occupants of the truck comfortable, contributing to the truck’s handling and braking, protecting the truck from wear and damage, maximizing the friction between the tires and the road surface; and increasing safety.

With a faulty suspension system, the truck’s performance and handling will be greatly affected. Also, driving on rough roads will not be an easy task. If roads were perfectly flat, suspensions would not be necessary.

Landing Gear

The landing gear is the part of a moving truck that is underneath the main body. It is the supporting structural framework of a truck. A landing gear incorporates the wheels, suspension, brakes, traction motors, and powered units.
