Repair services

The workshop based at the depot in Purfleet is responsible for maintaining the entire council fleet and any hired vehicles used by the council. All of our vehicles undergo 6-weekly inspections and every 6 months tail lift load testing is carried out.

This service is also available to maintain, inspect and repair vehicles for schools and other affiliated groups.

The workshop contains 8 portable column lifts able to lift 7.2 tonnes per corner or 14 tonnes per axle. There are also three 4 ton four poster lifts and pits. This department can comfortably work on vehicles up to 32 tonnes, can cover vehicle classes 4, 5 and 6 and can work on agricultural and horticultural vehicles.

Workshops can cover inspections, arrange MOT's and carry out any pre-MOT checks, tail-lift repairs and servicing and is in the process of gaining a L.O.L.E.R certificate (weight testing), it is also responsible for minor repairs and can organise major repairs with approved repairers.
