iconUpratingWhiteAs you may be aware, the DVSA is paying close attention to specialist vehicles, because over recent years it has found that more and more of them are running overloaded.

SvTech can uprate most makes and models of motorhomes, horseboxes, minibuses, pickups and LCVs; we have carried out dynamic brake testing on all of these models in order to create precedent reports with the DVSA, against which we offer uprates to give the user as much as 500kg extra payload. Obviously each make and model is different, but we are confident in being able to help you!

We would advise anyone owning or buying a specialist vehicle to ensure that they have an up-to-date weight ticket showing an unladen weight well within the official GVW. Bearing in mind that the manufacturers’ brochure kerb weight figure has a 5% margin of error, it could mean that your particular vehicle is nearly 150kg over the brochure figure.

SvTech can provide a one-stop service, advising you on your options and, if needed, uprating your vehicle, of which some will require our simple purpose-built suspension assister kit. For some models, we also supply air suspension systems.

We assess each vehicle individually through a simple form. We also request a copy of the weight ticket and a photograph of the converter’s plate to be sent at the same time.
