    Default Trailer service and maintenance (Cape Town)

    Good Morning all,

    Need to get my wheel bearings on my trailer repacked and serviced, as well as over-run brakes redone with a full lookover on entire system.
    Who uses who?
    TIA

    Check on Gumtree - there were a few guys advertising there, alternatively, I know that Tygerberg Caravans will also do it but obviously at a price.

    Contact Basecamp rentals in Montaque Gardens. They service trailers as well.

    Do the bearings yourself and let the suggested ones do the brakes.
    Cheers,

    Id gladly do so, and have in the past set up and maintained the brakes... but time isn't on my side at the moment.
    Need to outsource...

    Thanks for the replies and advice!
