Established more than a decade ago, and covering Romford and the surrounding areas as a family-owned company, Hales Commercial are your local commercial vehicle servicing and repair specialists. Operating from one of the best-equipped commercial vehicle garages in the region, we’ve built our business on the principles of first-class service, complete customer satisfaction and word-of-mouth referrals from existing clients.
Very few fleet commercial vehicle garages in or around the Romford area have the workshop capacity to accommodate 6 vehicles at any one time. In the last year alone, our company worked on more than 2,000 customer vehicles. In addition to servicing and repair work, we perform light commercial vehicle and van MOTs for private customers, trade clients and fleet management companies in East London, North East London and Essex.
We undertake commercial vehicle servicing and repair work on everything from light commercial models all the way through to trucks and HGVs weighing 44 tonnes. Our continued investment into staff training, modern equipment and diagnostic software has made Hales Commercial one of the most trusted commercial vehicle garages in Romford.
Our progressive outlook and our pursuit of excellence help us to comply with demanding trade and industry legislation, and to deliver the highest standards of workmanship on every vehicle. Light commercial and van MOTs in the Class IV and Class VII categories take place in dedicated inspection bays to ensure faster turnarounds for our customers.
Not all garages are equipped to provide commercial vehicle MOTs. At Hales Commercial, we handle MOTs for vehicles in Class IV (goods vehicles up to 3,000kg), Class V Light (private passenger vehicles and ambulances with 13 to 16 passenger seats, and private passenger vehicles, playbuses and ambulances with over 16 passenger seats, as long as they fall under 5,000kg), and private passenger Class VII (models between 3,000kg and 3,5000kg). We can also prepare and present HGV MOTs.
Ensure you or your fleet aren’t stopped in their tracks due to a lack of MOT coverage – book in today at Hales Commercial.MOTS
All vehicles over 3.5 tonnes are now required to contain tachographs, and this includes non-commercial models such as Ford Rangers and Toyota Hiluxes. As a dedicated Tachograph Center, we provide a full tachograph installation service, and also handle calibration and repairs. These devices record information about driving time, speed and distance.
They can be either analogue or digital, but if a commercial vehicle has been first registered on or after 1/5/2006, it’s mandatory to take the digital tachograph. Further details can be found on the gov website, or by navigating to our Tachograph Center’s page on this website. Alternatively, give us a call with any questions, or for tailored advice in this area.Tachographs
Many companies with commercial fleets trust our team to manage them year-round. This typically involves all required scheduled maintenance (e.g interim and annual servicing), pre-MOT checks and cleaning, inspections and diagnostics, and any repair work that might be called for. Our fleet management is always tailored to you and the needs of your vehicles.Fleet Management

All vehicles weighing in excess of 12 tonnes now required Direct Vision Standard permits in order to avoid Penalty Charge Notices. At Hales Commercial, we can help you obtain the required “star rating” by implementing video telematics recorders, blind spot cameras, driver alert systems and similar measures, such as side guards and warning signage.Direct Vision Standard

Officers from the DVSA, and the police, have the right to stop commercial vehicle drivers at the roadside and perform spot checks. Drivers and their companies incur fixed penalties on vehicles which fail to meet specified safety, roadworthiness and emission standards. This is just one of the reasons why light commercial and van MOTs are such an important consideration for fleet operators in Romford, Essex and the surrounding areas.
Fleet commercial vehicle garages like our own have a pivotal role to play in maintaining these standards. In much the same way as we manage the commercial vehicle servicing and repair needs of our customers and clients, Hales Commercial also provide annual inspection services to ensure every vehicle in your fleet is primed for regulated and ongoing use.
Because we perform light commercial and van MOTs over multiple categories, our Romford, East London, North East London and Essex customers can have all of their inspection and certification needs met by a single company. Hales Commercial also provides repair services to rectify any items which may have resulted in a commercial vehicle failing the MOT test.
