Trailer Body Repair

Trailer body damage happens frequently and may be worse than it appears, sometimes compromising the structural integrity of the trailer. Trailer body repair requires special equipment, tools, and most importantly, expertise. An experienced technician will investigate damages from every angle, taking all associated components into consideration to ensure safe and successful long-term repairs. From minor dents to complete rebuilds, the expert technicians at Transport Services can assist you with any trailer body repair.

ICC Bumper Repair and Replacement

A semi-trailer’s ICC Bumper is often damaged in an accident or from normal repeated docking operations. Damaged ICC Bumpers must be promptly returned to as-built condition to avoid costly fines and potential liability. This means using the same parts and specifications that the trailer manufacturer used. Transport Services has experience with all trailer manufacturers, so you can be confident that your damaged ICC Bumper is always repaired or replaced using the correct parts and specifications.

Trailer Refurbishment and Restoration

Trailers can deteriorate over time due to weather and use. Fortunately, Transport Services can make your old equipment look like new. If you have equipment or are considering purchasing a trailer or box truck that needs to be restored or modified to fit your particular use case, we are here to help. Our team will work with you to understand your requirements and application to ensure that your trailer not only looks like new again but meets your exact needs.

Floor Repair and Replacement

Just because the floor of your trailer looks fine, does not mean that it is. Salt and road grime can rot a trailer from underneath, while frequent loading and unloading of cargo can impact the strength and durability of a trailer’s floor over time. Trailer floor repairs are an inevitable part of trailer maintenance. From loose or rotted boards to cracks in aluminum or a weld separation, you can trust Transport Services to properly replace or repair your trailer floor.

Landing Gear Assembly and Crank Repair and Replacement

Most landing gear repairs are a result of not performing regular maintenance or misuse. Having a skilled technician check over your trailer’s landing gear system to make sure that everything is working the way it should and ensuring it is greased every three to four months can help identify early signs of damage, allowing you to get it taken care of before it gets worse. Let our team do the heavy lifting. Stop by our Service Division today to have your landing gear system inspected or repaired.

Door Repair and Replacement

Due to the amount of use trailer doors undergo, we have repaired and replaced a lot of trailer doors over the years. Many costly swing and roll door replacements can be avoided by addressing the issue when the door first starts malfunctioning. Regardless of the type of trailer or the style of door, our experienced technicians can expertly identify and address common trailer door weaknesses, from hinge damage and rot on swing doors, to broken panels and misaligned tracks in roll-up doors.

Frame and Structural Repair

Most regularly used trailers will experience some sort of frame damage caused by road conditions, heavy hauls or accidents. Damage to the trailer frame requires immediate and careful attention to avoid towing and safety issues and costly future repair bills. The trailer frame repair experts at Transport Services have the experience and state of the art equipment required to properly repair any trailer frame according to any manufacturer’s specifications.

Lighting and Electrical Diagnostic and Repair

Damage to a trailer’s lighting or electrical system is often challenging to diagnose and sometimes even more challenging to repair, depending on the location of the damaged element or wires. The Service Technicians at Transport Services will identify malfunctioning wires and loose connections by isolating each area individually and tracing the lines until the problem is identified. From replacing a seven-way receptacle to rewiring the main harness, our team can help.

Roof Repair and Replacement

The lightweight structure of trailers is heavily reliant on the roof and rails for support, so even the smallest roof leak can compromise the trailer structure if not repaired correctly. Proper, timely roof repair results in less labor, downtime, damage, and money lost in the long run. Whether it is translucent, fiberglass or aluminum, our experienced technicians can repair or completely replace your roof correctly, quickly, and affordably to avoid any further damage.

Air Systems Diagnostic and Repair

Proper maintenance and repair of your trailer’s air brake systems is crucial to safe and efficient stopping. Dirt, oil, and moisture can clog up these systems resulting in uneven, insufficient, or slow application, system leakage, or brakes that do not release or apply and will ultimately cause a break down or accident. Transport Services has been helping customers avoid these unnecessary breakdown costs and accidents for more than four decades.

Brake System Diagnostic and Repair

Daily wear-and-tear, dirt and debris and corrosion take a toll on trailer brakes and can affect braking stability and stopping distance. Reduce the risk of downtime and potential accidents with regular cleaning, inspection, adjustment, and lubrication of brake equipment. Whether you need routine maintenance, drum/shoe and cylinder repair or replacement, brake pad and rotor replacement, wheel bearing re-packing and adjustments, or have a different brake-related issue, we’ve got you covered.

Suspension Repair and Replacement

Serious safety issues and extensive damage to the trailer or the tractor can occur when one of the many components that make up a trailer’s suspension becomes worn or damaged. Experiencing unusual tire wear-and-tear or increased steering wheel and in-cab vibration? Bring your trailer to Transport Services. One of our knowledgeable service technicians will carefully inspect and provide a complete diagnosis of your trailer suspension, as well as repair any problem you have.

Welding and Fabrication

Transport Services provides high-quality welding and fabrication services to all industries. If you need welding done on steel or aluminum, our team has the training and experience to handle any job. Whether you need upper coupler fabrication, have a worn king pin that needs to be replaced, need subframe repair or even a complete replacement, we can help. Our certified welders will use the latest equipment and techniques to make sure your trailer exceeds your expectations.

Refrigeration Unit Diagnostic and Repair

Not all trailer repair shops provide reefer repair service because it requires specialized tools and equipment, and it can be difficult to find qualified service technicians. Transport Services provides comprehensive refrigerated trailer service, including maintenance and repair services for Thermo King reefer trailers and Carrier Transicold reefer trailers. Our service technicians are highly skilled and equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment to guarantee the best result.

Decal Removal and Installation

Removing adhesive vinyl graphics from a semi-trailer presents a few challenges. Most methods of decal removal require the use of strong solvents and chemicals used to dissolve the adhesive but using harsh solvents in the large amounts necessary for semi-trailer de-identification is hazardous. At Transport Services we use a safer alternative - steam. View our latest decal removal video to see for yourself how the process works.

Lift Gate Installation, Repair and Service

Transport Services has long-standing relationships with most major lift gate manufacturers and provides full installation and repair services for all types of lift gates, including conventional, raillift/railgate, and stowaway/tuckunder/flipaway. Our team can help you find the right lift gate for your business needs or keep an existing lift gate in proper working order so you can get the job done! From minor service to serious damage, our experienced technicians are here to help.

Trailer Customization

If you have an existing trailer that no longer meets your needs, or are considering purchasing a new or used trailer that doesn’t have the exact specifications required for your business, modifications could be cheaper than purchasing a different trailer. From shortening the height of a 53’ dry van trailer to converting rear swing doors to an overhead roll door, we have done it successfully. When it comes to trailer modifications, no job is too big or too small for our experienced team.
