Agroco Trailers have a second to none workshop facility, offerering our customers a first rate one stop servicing centre. All of our trailer technicians have been fully trained and approved by Ifor Williams at the training centre in North Wales and by Suzuki ATV.



Undetected faults caused by lack of proper and thorough servicing is a major cause of breakdowns and accidents involving trailers. With faulty lights, brakes and worn tyres being the most common. All of which, can be avoided by arranging to have your trailer serviced with AGROCO Trailers. 

As with all trailers, servicing depends on the amount of use, but we advise adopting a regular service schedule, as you would with your car. It is important to remember that trailers are road going vehicles and servicing ensures that they are always road safe.
