GVM+ Overview

Lock and Load with Pedders GVM Upgrade Solutions!

If you carry loads for a living or are serious about what you take with you on your next journey then look no further. Pedders GVM+ Upgrade Solutions offer one of the best suspension upgrades for your vehicle proudly backed by our nationwide network of certified installers and service centers.

When your vehicle is fully loaded for the journey ahead or if you’re carrying the tools of your work trade, chances are that your car may be overloaded beyond its GVM and you may not even know it. Common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, recovery gear and even your passengers all combine to increase the overall gross vehicle mass. It is also important to note that if you have purchased a cab/chassis, the weight of the tray is not part of the “curb weight”. Every vehicle on our roads today has an official legally allocated gross vehicle mass rating (GVM). The GVM rating is a legal weight figure (in kg’s) that results in the total maximum allowable weight of a vehicle when fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle.

Pedders offer a GVM suspension upgrade solution for selected models to assist in compliance for GVM ratings. The reason for this solution is to satisfy the following requirements: OH&S motor vehicle insurance, warranty issues and being road legal. Through exhaustive and detailed testing, the Pedders GVM Upgrade Kits have been approved by the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

So if you’re unsure about the GVM of your vehicle or if you think that you are running your vehicle over the legal weight limit, then book your car into one of our Pedders Tow & Load Assessment Outlets. With the use of our Test Lanes or Weight Scales we can check the axle weight and corner weights of your vehicle to determine the overall GVM figure and advise you if your vehicle is overloaded and what options are available for your vehicle.
