GOLD COAST, Australia - May 9, 2024 - PRLog -- For over two decades, Move Boat Trailers has continued to invest in providing an array of trailers to suit a wide range of PWC, fibreglass, aluminium and plate boats available on the market.

According to the 2023 Boating Data Report from the Boating Industry Association, new boat sales are said to be on a steady incline, increasing by 50% every year in Australia with 62% being aluminium and 33% fibreglass.

To meet the demand of the ever-growing boating industry and ensure the utmost safety on the road, Move Trailers has committed itself to delivering a long-lasting, high-quality range of PWC, aluminium, and fibreglass boat trailers.

Terry Hill, Move Trailer Warranty Supervisor suggests some of the telltale signs of when a trailer needs to be upgraded, which include the following:

Rust: If there are excessive amounts of rust anywhere, this could likely compromise the usability and safety of the trailer. Rust is one of the most significant signs that a trailer needs to be repaired or replaced.

Check rollers: One of the most important working parts of a trailer is the rollers, meaning it is important to make sure they function correctly. Rollers can break on older trailers and if not checked regularly could pose a risk to the user when using the trailer.

Boat suitability to trailer: Ensuring that the trailer used to transport the watercraft is suitable is crucial. If the trailer was bought a while ago and the vessel has since been upgraded, checking that it fits and can tow that amount of weight is important. If this isn't the case, upgrading to a more suitable trailer may be necessary.

Maintenance: Making sure to maintain a trailer is key to ensuring its longevity and avoiding any unnecessary wear and tear. Doing regular checks to maintain the braking equipment and tightness of the wheel nuts and tyre tread is recommended. Also, checking that the tyres are in good condition, are safe and can legally carry and transport the vessel is important.

Conducting regular maintenance upgrades with each trailer is vital to keeping your boat and others safe on the road and at the ramp.

The aluminium build of Move Trailers is not only lightweight to reduce strain on the towing vehicle but is rust-resistant meaning a longer-lasting, more durable build. With C-Channel and I-Beam frames, Move Trailers ensure complete water runoff, preventing retention of excess weight, while the carefully designed cradle makes for easy alignment when re-trailering.
