HGV/PCV Service & Test

HGV/PCV Service and test is a vital part of our business. We have built up a huge amount of experience through the service, maintenance, repair and testing of our own fleet of trailers over the years. This experience, combined with our modern facilities, has resulted in us offering a range of HGV/PCV services. Our HGV/PCV service and test services are available to all and not just our trailers hire or sales customers.

In 2012 we became an official DVSA Authorised Testing Facility and currently run two lanes and offer tests 5 days a week.
