Frequently Asked Questions

How do I determine the right spare parts for my needs?

Identifying the correct spare parts can seem like a difficult task, but it can be simplified with the right approach and information. The process can be broadly divided into a few steps:

  1. Identify the problem: The first step in getting the right spare part is identifying the problem. It might be a loose bolt, a worn-out hinge or something more complex.
  2. Refer to the manufacturer’s documentation: Once you know the problem, refer to the manufacturer’s documentation, like user manuals or parts catalogues. These documents contain detailed information and diagrams of all parts and their specifications which can help you identify what you need.
  3. Consult a specialist: If you're still unsure, consulting with a reliable parts supplier can be the best course of action. At Dubbo City Welding Works, we have a thorough understanding of trays and trailers. Our team will guide you to the right parts based on your needs.

Remember, using the right spare parts is not just about maintaining functionality; it's also important for ensuring the safety and longevity of your trays and trailers.

How can I identify counterfeit spare parts?

Identifying counterfeit spare parts can be challenging, especially for those unfamiliar with the original parts. Consider these factors:

  • Price: Counterfeit parts are often significantly cheaper than genuine ones.
  • Packaging: Genuine parts usually come in high-quality packaging with the manufacturer's branding, logos and part numbers. Counterfeit parts often have poor-quality packaging with misspelt words, blurred logos or incorrect part numbers.
  • Quality and Detail: Original parts have precise finishes, fitting perfectly without the need for adjustment, while counterfeit parts might not fit properly, exhibit poor craftsmanship or use substandard materials.

For peace of mind, always purchase your spare parts from reputable suppliers like Dubbo City Welding Works.

Can I install spare parts myself, or do I need a professional?

The installation process for spare parts depends on the complexity of the task. For simple replacements, such as bolts or hinges, you might be able to do it yourself with the proper tools and instructions. However, for more complex tasks involving structure or functionality, professional help is highly recommended to avoid improper installation that could compromise safety and longevity. 

How can I extend the lifespan of my spare parts?

Extending the lifespan of your spare parts is mostly about preventative care and proper maintenance. Here's how you can achieve this:

  • Regular Inspections: Conduct frequent inspections of your trays and trailers. Look out for signs of wear and tear, cracks or any potential issues that might cause problems down the line.
  • Proper Cleaning: Regularly clean your trays and trailers to prevent rusting or corrosion, which can shorten the lifespan of your spare parts. Pay special attention to parts exposed to harsh weather conditions or corrosive materials.
  • Adequate Lubrication: Make sure moving parts are well-lubricated to reduce friction and prevent premature wear.
  • Avoid Overloading: Overloading your trays or trailers can lead to excessive strain on parts. Always adhere to the recommended load capacity.
  • Timely Replacement: Once a part shows significant signs of wear or damage, replace it promptly. Delayed replacement can lead to additional damage and higher costs in the long run.

Can I purchase spare parts for older trays and trailers?

Yes, you can often find spare parts for older trays and trailers. At Dubbo City Welding, we stock a wide range of parts for various makes and models, old and new. However, availability might depend on the specific make and model of your trays and trailers. Get in touch with us, and we'll assist you in sourcing the right spare parts.
