Peter Haines Ltd Commercial HGV Recovery and Repairs

Peter Haines Engineers Ltd. Services


We have 2 inspection pits in the workshop. We carry out brake tests with built in brake rollers and a set of mobile brake rollers. We have our own ballast trailer for testing purposes, which is also available for hire.

The size of the workshop is 10500 sq feet and we have a total of 12 staff on site.


We provide a full rota system for our customers who need to know in advance the dates of inspections and MoTs through out the coming year. Once we have been given the MoT expiry date and the service intervals required our computer system produces the service schedule for that vehicle for the next twelve months, automatically adjusting dates for national holidays and adjusting to ensure that statutory requirements are met. Service rotas for vehicles are sent out in November to aid our customer’s planning of scheduled maintenance for the upcoming year.

MoT Testing

We do not carry out the MoT on site but prepare HGV’s for test. We arrange the steam cleaning prior to MoT and carry out the annual break and smoke test.

When a HGV is in for an MoT inspection the vehicle is required for 3 days which includes the steam cleaning of the vehicle and any additional work required. The vehicle goes for test on the 3rd day. We mainly use the test station at Bicester.
