HGV Servicing

Car & Commercial Repairs is known in Bulwell, Nottingham, for reliable, competitively priced HGV servicing, often called “the 6-week inspection”.

For obvious reasons, heavy goods vehicles (HGV) require far more frequent and intensive safety checks and routine servicing. Once the timeframe for the regular check/inspection has been set this must not be deviated from. Car & Commercial Repairs carry out all kinds of checks, servicing, and routine maintenance on all kinds of HGV vehicles. Our HGV technicians are very experienced and exhaustively trained to carry out maintenance work on these complex motor vehicles with precision and attention to detail.

Before any and every journey, the driver should always do a walk-round check, ensuring as far as possible that all the following are operating or presented correctly:

  • Mirrors
  • Fuel tanks and caps
  • Speedometer
  • Tachograph
  • Number plates
  • Bodywork
  • Brakes
  • Lights and indicators
  • Tyres and nuts securing the wheels
  • Windscreen wipers and washers
  • Horn
  • Reflectors and reflective plates
  • Exhaust system
  • Any coupling gear
  • Speed limiter
  • Correct plating
  • Current test certificate (if needed)
  • Proper licensing with the appropriate valid disc(s) displayed
  • Insurance
  • Seat belts
  • Construction and use
  • Any load being carried

Then, during every 6-week inspection (service), all aspects of an HGV vehicle are checked and tested (lights, wiring, brakes, suspension, steering, emissions, etc.), the aim being that on any day of the year, the vehicle could pass an MOT test, and is roadworthy and safe for the driver, the load, and other road users.

HGV technician training is specialist and as such HGV maintenance inspections should only be carried out by appropriately trained personnel, such as our HGV team at Car & Commercial Repairs in Bulwell, Nottingham.

Car & Commercial Repairs is an RAC-Approved garage, and is also affiliated with 1-Link and The Motor Ombudsman. All three organisations impose strict codes of practice to protect our customers and underpin our commitment to the highest standards of workmanship and customer service.
