D Pickering Ltd invests more than £50,000 to become HGV repair specialist of choice

If you’re a business that uses car transporters, HGVs and trucks – whether you have an entire fleet of hundreds of vehicles in the case of a major haulage or logistics firm or a single vehicle – we understand you want the peace of mind of knowing that your business is safe and roadworthy.

At D Pickering Ltd, we can offer you that peace of mind and reassurance, thanks to our fully equipped repairs workshop.

Our garage has the facility to offer HGV MOT’s, 6 weekly inspections and day to day running repairs.

What’s more, our highly experienced and professional fitters have more than 118 years’ experience in the trade combined.

As a provider of car transporter servicing and HGV repairs stretching back many years, our workshop delivers an industry-leading service that’s tailored to suit each customer’s unique needs.

Car transporter maintenance in particular requires specialist knowledge of the complex engineering, industry-specific needs and legal requirements – and that’s why our mechanics are hand-picked to provide the very best services using all the latest diagnostic equipment and HGV maintenance technologies.

The fact we’ve recently made significant investment in state-of-the-art workshop equipment will also help to save you time and money.

Thanks to our recent £50,000-plus investment in MAHA brake rollers, we are able to test the brakes on any HGVs that come into us, whereas previously, the vehicle had to travel a further four miles down the road for this service.

We had to have a lot of groundwork done on the site to install this equipment, but now it’s here it will benefit a number of logistics firms in the local area and other businesses with HGVs and trucks.

We can now save time and fuel costs by offering this service at our site, something which is helping us to position ourselves as a maintenance and repair specialist of choice for the logistics sector and any other businesses who own heavy goods vehicles in the local area.

We also now have a V-Tech Beam Setter, which is an electronic beam setter that ensures lights on trucks and HGVs are set at the right angle.

This is a requirement by law to get HGVs through their MOT and ensure they are operating safely at all times.

Now that we have both of these services on site, there is no need to look elsewhere to have your HGV checked, serviced or repaired.

Trucks have to have their brakes tested four times a year by law and we are now able to make this as simple as possible to ensure your fleet stays on the road in the best condition required by law and for the health and safety of drivers and other road users.

At our state-of-the-art fully equipped repair workshop, we cover anything from fixing a mirror to alternators.

We also offer lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulation (LOLER) Annual Inspections and breakdown and call out services.

We are already trusted to fix around 140 trucks per year for BCA, but we also cater for businesses who only have one or two trucks they need regular maintenance for. Basically, whether you’re an SME or a large logistics operator, we can support you with your vehicle maintenance.

We also transport motor homes and other large vehicles around the UK.

As we’re a one-stop-shop, you don’t need to spend time booking and delivering your vehicles to other maintenance providers.

This frees up your time to focus on what you do best whilst we take care of all your car transporter and HGV maintenance needs.

If car transporters and HGVs are integral to your business, please give us a call on 0191 3874555 and we’ll be more than happy to help you.
