Most people know of suspension – and they use it in their everyday lives, and as such, it is now something that we take for granted. But it was not always that way. Until it was put into the first wheeled transport vehicle, rides were bumpy and uncomfortable. Now, it only seems that a car journey should be smooth and free of turbulence.

However, I know that a lot of people forget about suspension when it comes to their trailers – it is not often considered because we see suspension as a convenience to our comfort rather than a necessity on all wheeled vehicles.

You see, suspension is initially there to make it a safer journey – to stop pot holes or bumps in the trail from causing injury or damage. When you drive over something you don’t necessarily notice it but your trailer most certainly will. And it will damage whatever is in it – whether it is just personal belongings, your boat or even livestock.

It is especially important to consider suspension for your trailer is used to transport livestock, as stress can lead to illness and even death extremely rapidly in some animals. Traveling in a strange moving container being surrounded by noisy metal things speeding past is already quite stressful for a creature that is used to grazing around at his own leisure, munching on grass and rolling about in mud all day, so it is really important to make it as pleasant as possible – and the easiest way is to make sure that at least the patch of ground they are standing on isn’t moving around erratically.

The best way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to visit a suspension specialist and get it fitted professionally.
