Our comprehensive repair services cover a wide range of issues, from minor repairs to major component replacements.

We use genuine Palfinger parts to maintain the integrity and performance of your equipment.


It’s an unavoidable fact that due to the environments in which they operate, commercial vehicles are susceptible to body damage. Whilst it’s important to maintain vehicles in a good, safe condition, the situation everyone wants to avoid is having the vehicle out of action for extended periods while it is sent for repair.

It was to help operators maintain their vehicles in prime condition and minimise downtime that we launched a mobile body repair service in 2015, which has proved extremely popular and effective.

Specially-equipped vans are in service, with trained operatives who will carry out on-the-spot repairs at times to fit in with your schedule.

The mobile facility with its workshop tools and extensive stock of parts is capable of undertaking a surprising range of repairs, including dropside, side impact protection, rear under run and floors. All vehicles are fitted with onboard generators and welders capable of all site welding, including aluminium and coded welding.

Routine Body Inspections

Our Routine body inspections can also be carried out on-site and estimates can be provided for all repairs for your approval.

This valued service can also be utilised before MOTs to enable the vehicle body to be safe and compliant.

To find out more about our on-site commercial vehicle repair service call us on 01380 733513 or please get in touch.

Having recently purchased a secondhand Palfinger PC1500 crane for log deliveries, we encountered a problem with the main lift ram creeping back down under it’s own weight.
After numerous conversations & attempts at solving the problem ourselves to no avail I sent a message via Palfinger UK’s Facebook page.
Cassie very quickly replied telling me to ring the Service team so I rang & spoke to Dan who recommended I got a Service Engineer out.
One hour later Geordie Atkins arrived & diagnosed a faulty load hold sensor/valve, so it was back to Dan who told me they had a new valve & it would be sent out immediately for next day delivery.
By 11am the following day it had arrived and upon fitting the problem was solved.
The complete service from start to finish from Cassie, Dan & Geordie was fantastic – 10hrs from problem to fix.

I can’t recommend Palfinger UK’s service enough.
