Texas State Trailer Inspection

Our League City and Georgetown locations are Licensed Inspection Stations for non-commercial trailers.

We primarily inspect our new trailers when we sell them to customers but we can inspect used trailers upon request with certain limitations. We are unable to inspect new, unregistered trailers purchased from other Texas trailer dealers.

We are not licensed to inspect cars, trucks, buses, motor homes, tractor trailers, or commercial trailers.

We are not a service or repair facility and are not able to make even the most minor repairs at our facilities. Although we offer a selection of trailer parts we do not offer repair or installation services.

Our insurance requirements forbid us to allow customers to make any trailer repairs on the premises.

We do not make appointments for inspections, first come, first served only.

Hours of Inspection: Monday thru Friday 8 am - 4 pm

 

Before you drive out to one of our locations for a trailer inspection, please be prepared and aware of the following:

 

1. You must present current, valid proof of Insurance that lists the VIN # of the towing vehicle as having at least the minimum State required liability insurance.

2. The vehicle information plate on the trailer must be legible and state the VIN #, year manufactured, make, model, and GVWR. If the information plate is missing or illegible you must provide the county issued registration document last issued for your trailer. The county issued license plate with latest registration sticker must be on the trailer.

3. Your trailer must have working brakes and if the brakes are electric, the towing vehicle must have a working brake control unit to control the brakes.

4. All tires must be properly inflated, in safe, good condition, no dry rot, not cuts or splits longer than 1”, at least 2/32” of tread on every tire.

5. All wheels must be in safe, good condition, no bent or cracked rims, no missing or mis-matched lug nuts.

6. All running lights, reflectors, turn signals, license plate light, clearance lights must be in good working order and in good condition. No cracked lenses or reflectors.

7. The general condition of the trailer must be safe and sound. No loose or broken welds, bent frames, loose or rotted floor boards, unsafely rusted components.

8. The hitch should be sound and secure, the emergency break away brake kit should be functional, and safety chains in place. All wiring should be in good condition and secured in place properly.

9. Our inspectors reserve the right to refuse to inspect any trailer where any obviously unsafe conditions exist.
