Wheelbase Alterations for Commercial Vehicles

If your current trailer or lorry is too long or short, here at Malcolm Taylor Commercial, we offer a wheelbase alterations service. You may wish to change vehicle cargo capacity or the way loads are transported. We can advise on making safe and effective wheelbase alterations, compliant with road haulage safety legislation – this may involve shortening or lengthening the chassis, or fitting an additional axle.

Changes to extend or reduce the wheelbase on commercial vehicles sometimes become necessary to suit a particular location and purpose, or for other operational requirements – perhaps to use specific manufacturers’ stock. In all cases, our skilled engineers use the finest quality materials and fully comply with manufacturing guidelines and recommendations to maintain the overall integrity of the vehicle. For your peace of mind, chassis alteration work is carried out in accordance with current Whole Vehicle Type Approval legislation
