Site Facilities

Located on the 12-acre site close to the M58 motorway, the company has brand new extensively purpose built modern workshop facilities with heavy engineering, fabrication, maintenance, and trailer refurbishment.

Our workshops are equipped with all the latest tools to inspect and service commercial vehicles including all forms of trailers including specialist and bespoke trailers. With a full staff of well trained, educated and experienced staff all forms of jobs can be assessed and undertaken. Facilities include: 20m fabricated pits with fitted pit jacks, the latest brake testers which conform to test inspectorate standards, vehicle emission extractors and overhead crane to name a few. As well as the on-site facilities we are also able to provide break down assistance which includes vehicles that are unable to be recovered due to the loads that are transported.

Within the onsite fabrication department, we are able to offer specialist design and alterations. This can be basic vehicle chassis modification work to chassis rebuilds with major alteration and additional equipment fitting. Trailer alterations can also be undertaken, repair of damaged trailers, specific customer alterations, and the redesign to facilitate a trailer to a specific project. Within this department, we are also able to provide the design and manufacture of equipment to carry/support the load in question, for example, a tilt frame to reduce the width of a load for transport.

Vehicle chassis modification can also be undertaken were we are able to offer the design, manufacture, and fitting of additional equipment, for example: aluminium fuel / hydraulic tanks, sub frames & 5th wheels.

Additional axle installations are an effective means of increasing the carrying capacity of a vehicle where we specialise in fitting these axles into the tightest positions to keep the overall wheelbase short and therefore keeping vehicle manoeuvrability to an optimum.

Chassis alterations can be carried out to provide greater body lengths for many reasons such as converting a vehicle from artic to rigid drawbar chassis.

Engineering The Right Trailer

As part of the companies’ dedication to the transport industry we have now moved forward into the ‘in house’ design and manufacture of our own trailers. In the design of the trailers we are able to implement features that we believe are important in the transport of not only general cargo but also the specialist cargo.
