Old plant trailer in need of repair

I bought this for one job to move a scaffold tower as I was stuck, its now done several jobs and saved a fortune in skip hire, delivery charges etc.
Its an old all steel Checker plate floor plant trailer.

The Good
The lights work and it tows very well full or empty
Its a professionally Manufactured trailer with the rating plate still attached Manufactured by SJ Cook
Its cheap
Its 8ft x 4 ft our local tip lets me in as long as I pre book
It has a steel loading ramp
It has a ladder rack
The floor is a solid steel sheet
It has brakes I would suggest you overhaul them.
Its a standard hitch.
It has its original rating plate looks to be rated to carry just under 1 ton although we have carried more in it.
The Bad
The Chassis has some rot where the springs mount on, and some on the trailer sides I have just carried on using it.

Worth much more once repaired
Located in West Lancs
