Trailer Repair – Semi-Trailer Kingpin Refurbishing

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 Published By: Patrick Logan

When looking to refurbish your semi-trailer kingpin, make sure to select an expert mechanic and refinisher in the Amarillo, Lubbock or Odessa, Texas regions. Whether you’re renting your trailer, own it or are looking to buy or rent a new one, checking the condition of your kingpin regularly is important to the safety of your entire rig as well as other drivers on the road. If your kingpin is worn out, the stability of your entire trailer is compromised. By refurbishing your trailer kingpin, replacing it completely or even choosing to upgrade to a new or used trailer, you’ll guarantee your trailer is ready for the long haul.

Replacing a Semi-Trailer Kingpin – A Good Choice For Trailer Repair?

If your kingpin is so worn out such that refurbishing is not an option, you many choose to replace the entire piece. A certified mechanic can cut out the old kingpin from your trailer and the cross member supports. Then, a new kingpin is installed and professionally welded to your trailer. The new setup may be sturdy and well installed, but there are always risks that the welded areas may falter surrounding the new kingpin. Also, the cost of a new kingpin and replacement are very high, proving that refurbishment is a better option when possible.

Refurbishing a Semi-Trailer Kingpin – A Better Choice For Trailer Repair?

With the costs and risks involved in replacement, it is sometimes better to refurbish your existing kingpin, especially if the wear is not great. The cost of repair is also much lower than replacement costs, and typically takes a shorter amount of time. There are many certified mechanics and repair shops in the Lubbock, Odessa and Amarillo areas that can professionally refurbish a worn out kingpin but by far, Trailer Services of West Texas is your best choice.
