Trailer light boards are perhaps among the easiest of parts and accessories you can buy. Most trailer parts and spares, from couplings to wheels and tyres, would be more complicated to decide on. Trailer light boards come in very few variants. You can choose between traditional bulbs and light emitting diodes. You can decide the width of the board, the length of the cable, whether or not you want a dual voltage piece and if you would want some magnetic mount. Some trailer light boards do not come with the bracket or mount. You may have to purchase it separately. Regardless of the type of trailer light boards you intend to buy, use this last minute checklist to make sure you do not get into paying more or receiving a product of sub-par quality.
• When you check prices of trailer light boards online, you should note if it is inclusive of taxes or otherwise. This is entirely up to a store and its policy pertaining to how it will present the relevant value added tax. Many stores will mention their prices excluding the taxes. Some will include the tax. Do not compare prices wherein one is inclusive and the other is exclusive of taxes.
• Always figure out the shipping fees before you initiate the transaction. Some companies will be upfront with their shipping charge. Some will only let you know after you have initiated the payment. You cannot expect free shipping on trailer light boards unless you are buying one of the more expensive ones or you are ordering a few. Trailer light boards can be priced as low as fifteen quid or as much as a hundred quid. Of course there are more expensive ones and cheaper used ones. The average or standard quality trailer light boards would not qualify for free shipping in most cases. You can definitely get free shipping if you are buying other trailer parts along with the boards.
• Check the ISO and BSI standards of the trailer light boards. You should not compromise on these if you want a quality product. You should also check the warranty. All manufacturers of repute would satiate these requisites here in the United Kingdom. If you are buying from a store based overseas or from a company that is not manufacturing trailer light boards as per the regulations set by the industry here then you have to be more careful.
