A very big welcome to all our readers, this the first Newsletter compiled by the DanHIRE Trailers Team.
Our newsletter under the banner of Waveney Towing and Leisure includes our interest of Caravans, Boat Trailers, Horse Trailers and all aspects of Safety of Towing.
During the last few months we have all experienced a strange time of lockdowns and see the rising cases and problems of COVID 19.
During Tier 3 we have met many people so eager for the day everything gets normal and get their Caravans moving once again.
Yes we have seen a big increase of Towbar Fitting the DanHIRE Workshops have been busy.
But now at time of our Newsletter Launch we have been put on Tier 5, working to strict Government Guidelines we are open for emergency service.
Also including the most important items of Trailer and Driving Safety, and of course a discount voucher every so often 🙂
Hope you enjoy our newsletter and please visit us every month.

TRAILER TOWING SAFETY
A very important safety device that must be fitted to all Trailers is a Breakaway Cable.
If a problem occurs and the Trailer becomes detached from Tow Vehicle, the breakaway cable pulls on the trailer braking linkage before snapping and allows the Tow Vehicle to get free of the Trailer and out of danger.
