Note: Trailers or parts approved under warranty must be returned to the Mackay Multilink factory or the customer’s local Mackay Dealer. Under no circumstances will any warranty claim be paid without prior authorization by Mackay Multilink. Mackay Multilink is under no obligation to collect trailers, or repair trailers off site
The condition of the galvanised finish is governed by the environment in which the trailer is maintained and stored. Deterioration of the galvanizing (and the formation of ‘white rust’) is accelerated in areas of high humidity, poor ventilated storage, high salinity or poor water levels.
Some questions should be asked prior to purchasing your trailer to ensure it fits the purpose in which you require its use.
It is strongly recommended that your trailer be serviced at least once every year, with brakes and bearingsrequiring six monthly service attention. This will lengthen the life of the trailer and keep you safe on the road. Checks must be done on all your running gear including bearings, hubs, brakes, wheels and tyres. Your trailer can be serviced at Mackay Multi-Link, your Dealer or any reputable trailer service/repair centre.
The warranty supersedes any prior information in this regard.
(1) The Boat Manufacturer or Dealer can give the Mackay New Trailer Warranty (NTW) to the Consumer within 12 months of the date of manufacture. The NTW can however be renewed with written authorization from Mackay Multilink, and subject to conditions.
