Need a trailer guy in the Palm Beaches...

Bought a double axle Continental trailer last year without any brakes so I'm looking for a shop who can do the work.

Any recommendations?

    Dan's the right guy. He replaced two axles, break pads, one caliper, and custom built bunks to help guide the bow on better and I couldn't have been any happier with the price and service.

    Dan was too busy to help me a couple of weeks ago.

    I now have a trailer whose bunks have come loose and I need to raise the boat some how to replace the bunk hardware. The bunks are not connected but held into the supports by the weight of the boat. If I drive it anywhere, I risk have it shift and putting four nasty holes in the hull.

    Also, try The Hub, west of Australian Avenue, north of 45th Street, in Mangonia Park.

    Anyone know if Dan can install a hitch? I have the hitch and wiring, but seems like, not the time

    I've had real good luck at "the hub" in Magnolia Park. The guys there were able to just look at my older Continental trailer & then sell me all the right bearings, seals, etc for me to do a DIY rebuild. They stock a real good selection of spare parts from wheels, to bearings, to springs, to hardware, to full axle sets to brakes to hitches, etc.

    They do service, builds & modifications there too. I've seen them working on stuff. They don't take short cuts. The work looks good. Their prices are about the same as other trailer shops that I have been to in the area. I make the extra drive to go back to these guys now because I trust them.

    They are also an authorized Continental dealer. I haven't bought a trailer from them.

    They seem to specialize in boat trailers.

    Head west off of Australian on 53'd, a little ways north of 45th st., but south of rt. 710. They are on the left side of the road. They are on the south east facing side of a white building, about half way in the back.
