HGV 6-week check

HGVs are required to undergo comprehensive walk round checks on a daily basis and more detailed vehicle checks at regular intervals stipulated by the operators O licence.

This is often known as the HGV 6-week check but must be programmed to follow a time-based pattern so that vehicles remain in a safe condition to use on and off the road. Not only does this protect operators and drivers but also other road users and the wider public.

Regardless of vehicle ownership, the user is responsible for making sure that a vehicle is safe to drive, roadworthy and has all necessary certifications.

We carry out HGV 6-week inspections (or other frequency), with same day or next day appointment availability. Costing £150 plus VAT and usually taking two hours to complete, our safety inspections are of the highest calibre.

We also offer brake tests for your vehicle at an additional cost of £10 plus VAT per axle.

As a responsible provider of HGVs available for sale or for hire, MHF (UK) Ltd offer a comprehensive vehicle inspection service. It is important to remember that operational needs must not override safety considerations. You can find out more about the HGV 6-week check here.

MOT preparation and presentation

Your HGV MOT appointment is approaching. You can’t afford to risk your vehicle failing its MOT. Re-tests cost money and will delay the return of your vehicle to its scheduled workload.

As part of our commitment to providing all aspects of vehicle maintenance, MHF (UK) Ltd offers a complete MOT preparation check for HGVs and can even present your vehicle to the MOT test centre for you.

A scheduled MOT preparation appointment will enable us to check for and repair any necessary issues that are identified so that you can be sure that your vehicle will be back on the road as planned, meaning you can run your business more efficiently.

MOT preparation is charged at £75 per hour plus VAT. If you would also like us to present your vehicle at the MOT centre please contact us for a quote.

Call MHF (UK) Ltd now to book your MOT preparation appointment on 01386 792354.

Trailer maintenance

Even though trailers don’t have an engine, there are many essential parts that require servicing.

At MHF (UK) Ltd we carry out trailer maintenance for many of our customers, setting up bespoke schedules depending on the usage of the trailer. Trailers that are used heavily will require more frequent maintenance inspections than those that are only used lightly.

Items that will be checked in our trailer maintenance appointments include the braking system and the brakes themselves, cables and rods, coupling equipment, wheels and bearings too.

Trailers that exceed 3,500kg are required to undergo an annual test (not an MOT) which we can prepare your vehicle for.

Workshop rates are charged at £75 per hour plus VAT.

Simply ask our staff for more information about this service.
