UK Car Inspections have extensive practise inspecting and buying commercial vehicles.
We can check out any van or commercial vehicle for sale on the mainland United Kingdom. Our buyers have years of experience buying commercial vehicles in the UK for the domestic market, Ireland, New Zealand and South America.
Our van inspections give you the same HPI checks and valuations as our car inspections
We also check the vehicle to confirm it meets Euro IV compliance and is currently running the correct GVW as listed so the car will be complied in the correct category. It is not uncommon for UK commercials to be fitted with a tacho and have their weight upgraded. This can cause compliance issues in some markets.
The majority of our trade vans and utes are sourced through BCA British Car Auctions and Manheim Remarketing. We also have access to trade disposals from all of the major commercial leasing companies.
For private customers we can inspect any van/ute or truck that you have found advertised yourself. Import regulations vary from country to country but we do a full underside inspection on all commercial vehicles and catalogue any rust or sill repairs that would raise a flag.
UK roads are spread with salt crystals over winter to melt snow and ice. This does not affect cars in general but commercial vehicles have a lower level of underside protection and can be severely rusted structurally if they have not been cared for. Our inspectors are trained to NZTA standards to document any rust underneath a Van and you will recieve HD photographs to alert your attention to any corrosion.
We can inspect any truck or specialist commercial units such as Plant equipment,tippers,cherry pickers,bin trucks,low loaders etc.
Obviously with such specific vehicles we will tailor a bespoke report to focus on exactly what you need to know. Like all of our other inspections we carry out full background checks on the vehicle including HPI and VOSA licencing checks before we arrange a physical inspection.
For trade customers Manheim remarketing have a specialist heavy commercials division which can be accessed here.
