This article answers the popular question: How do you choose the right trailer axle supplier?

Step 1: Make a list

When choosing a trailer axle supplier, you should consider several factors to ensure you’re getting a reliable and quality axle supplier. First, start by making a list of suppliers near you or suppliers that ship to you. Do this by searching online or asking for recommendations.

Step 2: Research

Once you have a list of potential suppliers, research each one to learn more about their experience, product offerings, shipping, warranty, and pricing. Look for reviews from past customers. Check their website, read about their history, and gather as much intel about each company.

Step 3: Contact the suppliers

Contact each supplier and ask about their customer service. A reliable supplier should be able to provide detailed information about their products. They should also be willing to answer any specific questions you have about their products. If the company is not local to you, ask how long shipping takes. Understanding the turnaround time will help you calculate how quickly you’ll get your trailer back up and running.

Step 4: Narrow down your options

Consider the price of the axles, but don’t make your decision solely based on cost. It’s important to find a supplier that not only offers high-quality products at a fair price but also provides value with their customer service, expert technicians, installation guides, resources, and warranties. 

Step 5: Request Quotes

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, request samples or quotes from each supplier to compare their products and prices.
