Trailer Safety Certificates & Repairs


Trailers with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) of 0.751-3.50 tonnes (t) require a safety certificate (previously known as 'roadworthy inspections' or 'roadworthies' for short) in order to be sold second hand.

We regularly service and inspect trailers and count ourselves as experts in this area. For an efficient and high quality service at a great price, bring your trailer into our workshop in Sumner.

You are required by Queensland law to get a safety certificate if you are selling a trailer second hand. The certificate must be acquired from an approved inspection station (we are one) and displayed in an obvious place on the trailer (ie. on the draw-bar) from the moment that you offer it for sale. Failure to acquire and display a valid safety certificate when selling your trailer can result in a $550 fine. A safety certificate is valid for 2 months from issue or 2000km, whichever comes first.

Aside from selling your trailer, you may want to get a trailer inspection for other reasons including repairs and maintenance and general safety inspection. We can help you with inspections as well and also do any repairs or servicing that is required.

Our workshop is located in Sumner and we also serve many customers in the surrounding areas including; Jindalee, Sumner Park, Mt Ommaney, River Hills, Middle Park, Jamboree Heights, Oxley, Darra, Forest Lake, Richlands, Inala, Wacol, Carol Park, Durack, Galies, Goodna and Seventeen Mile Rocks./p>
