Tail lift fitting

Our team of highly-skilled fitters have been installing tail lifts and passenger lifts for over 30 years. We've also been awarded enhancement scheme approval by the VCA, which means that our engineers can fit tail lifts to all makes and models of N1 and N2 panel vans. We’re approved agents for all major tail lift manufacturers.

Whether you’d like us to complete installation on-site or at our dedicated tail lift centre in the West Midlands, you can expect a highly efficient service with work completed to the highest possible standard – and vehicle downtime kept to a minimum.

As well as fitting tail lifts, we also carry out an extensive range of tail lift repairs – at the roadside, on-site and at our purpose-built tail lift centre. Our fleet of well stocked and fully equipped service vehicles are manned by a team of experienced engineers. As a result, we can complete the majority of repairs on-site, keeping delays and disruption to a minimum. To minimise downtime, we:

Tail lift servicing

Whether you’re a large fleet operator or a private individual, we offer servicing for both commercial and passenger tail lifts. Services are completed by our engineers, who specialise in servicing all makes of tail lifts and mobility lifts, for all tail lift manufacturers and vehicle models. We recommend that tail lifts are serviced every six months to ensure that they operate safely and efficiently at all times.

Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) Weight Testing

Safe and successful lifting operations largely depend on the continued safety of the lifting equipment and accessories being used. 

All lifting equipment, including tail lifts, must be thoroughly examined in accordance with the latest LOLER guidelines, which are designed to ensure all lifting equipment is:

  • Fit for purpose
  • Appropriately maintained
  • Marked in order to minimise risk

Failure to comply with the LOLER guidelines can result in significant or even fatal injuries occurring.

Our team of experienced engineers can help ensure your tail lifts and accessories comply with the latest guidelines by:

  • Regularly conducting thorough tail lift inspections in line with the latest stipulations
  • Providing weight testing checks and services
  • Carrying out winch testing
