UpratingCarry more load! Depending upon the vehicle, this may be as simple process of approval, VIN plate and certification or, in some instances, require actual physical changes, such as wheel, tyre and suspension modifications. Uprating is a very specialised service and is usually done to raise one model to the level of the next. Find out more
DownplatingAs well as replating a vehicle to legally carry heavier loads, owners can also reduce the legal maximum weight their vehicle can carry. This is known as downplating, and SvTech can help you reduce your gross vehicle weight for driving licence, tacograph, or Low Emission Zone/CAZ (clean air zones) reasons. Find out more
