Welcome to #TrailerSafetyWeek! Peerless is a proud ally of this annual event. Peerless supplies Cargo Control and Trailer Safety Chain Products to the trailer manufacturing industry. As a decades long provider to the industry and a 16 year member of NATM, we look forward to a week of trailer safety learning during this outreach to industry operators, dealers, suppliers, and manufacturers.
Before attaching the trailer and loading cargo be sure to read the trailer owner’s manual and safety decals. The manual and labels contain important information on load rating, load position, connection and maintenance. Never exceed any of the requirements to prevent injury or damage to people, property, or cargo. Properly securing the load is an important factor element in the trailer safety equation. We offer all the products you need including straps, chain, and binders to accomplish the task. Once your trailer is attached with the cargo loaded and secure, perform one final inspection by walking around the trailer before departing. Have a safe trip!
