Truck Servicing and MOTs

Book Online
Regular servicing of your truck is vital for several reasons. By law, every employer must make sure that all work vehicles are maintained in in an efficient state, in efficient working order, and in good repair.

Planned maintenance should be thorough, regular and frequent enough to meet the manufacturer's guidelines and common sense, so you should always get your servicing done at a Manufacturer Approved Service Centre. More than that though, servicing is the ideal way to maintain both the smooth running and the resale value of your vehicle.

We pride ourselves on ensuring that you, and your vehicle receive the very highest level of care and service. No one understands your vehicle like we do, and as well as Service, MOT and repair, we also offer a range of more specialist servicing options to keep your vehicle in good working condition.

ATF Testing

An Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) checks that heavy goods vehicles and trailers are roadworthy and meet safety and environmental standards. In the majority of cases all commercial vehicles are tested every 12 months from date of first registration.

To have an ATF, the facilities must have been approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Our ATF facilities are modern and state-of-the-art, fitted with the latest vehicle technology. We have 4 ATF lanes, which collectively cater for all your vehicle safety needs. All lanes are Intrinsically Safe (IS), meaning Dangerous Goods Vehicles such as fuel tankers can be tested without having to be 'purged' of their dangerous substances first. This can save operators hundreds of pounds.

Approved Tachograph Centres

A tachograph is a device that can be fitted in your vehicle to record information about driving time, speed, and distance. They are an easy way to make sure you're following the rules on how many hours you can legally drive and the breaks you need to take.

It may be compulsory for you to have a tachograph in your vehicle. If the maximum permissible weight of your vehicle is more than 3.5 tonnes then EU rules apply to you, and you must use a tachograph. Furthermore, if your vehicle was registered on or after 1 May 2006 then your vehicle must be fitted with a digital (rather than analogue) tachograph.

All of our four truck dealerships are Approved Tachograph Centres (ATCs) and we're able to install or calibrate existing tachographs. We can fit the right tachograph for your vehicle, check an existing tachograph is working effectively, and show you how to use them properly.

LOLER Testing

If your vehicle has lifting equipment attached it's important to make sure it's safe. One of your main responsibilities is to make sure it adheres to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). LOLER requires that you get your lifting equipment regularly examined and tested by a competent person (who must be independent and impartial), particularly if it is exposed to conditions that cause deterioration, such as wet or abrasive environments.

We can carry out LOLER testing to check that your equipment is in good condition and fit for operation, meaning you can rest assured that your vehicle is abiding by the regulations.
