You may or may not know, but in QLD, if you are selling a trailer, you will need to ensure that you get a safety certificate. Also known by some as a trailer roadworthy certificate, this certificate will show potential buyers that your trailer is safe according to the requirements set forth by Queensland Transport. The question is, how do you get a trailer roadworthy certificate? It is quite easy actually, all you need to do is to contact a local authorised workshop.
You can find a list of local authorised inspection stations (AIS) by looking in the yellow pages, talking to friends and family, or looking for an AIS on the internet. All you will typically have to do is schedule an appointment, but you should know a few things first. For instance, you will want to know about the reputation of this particular AIS. One way to find this out is by reading reviews and testimonials on the internet. Another thing that you will want to know is if they offer mobile inspections. If they do, take advantage of that service, especially with a trailer.
Once you have your appointment scheduled, you will just need to wait for that day and time to come. When it does, your trailer will be inspected by a professional. Some of the parts that will be examined will be the brakes, the tyres and the suspension. Assuming that all is well, you will be issued a safety certificate that you will need to display on the draw-bar of the trailer…and that is all you need to know about getting a roadworthy certificate for your trailer.
