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 centres.
When your vehicle is fully loaded for the journey ahead or if you are carrying the tools of your work trade, chances are that your vehicle may be overloaded beyond its GVM and Payload capacity and you may not even know it. Common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, fuel, accessories, passengers, recovery gear all combine to add weight to your vehicle and decrease the available payload. It is also important to note that if you have purchased a cab/chassis, the weight of any tray or service body is considered to be part of the “kerb weight” – therefore further reducing the available payload.
If you’re wondering, what is a GVM upgrade, then you should know that every vehicle on our roads today has an official legally allocated Gross Vehicle Mass rating (GVM) and Payload Capacity. This is how much weight a vehicle can carry in both passengers and cargo in the cab and tray bed. The GVM rating is the maximum allowable weight figure (in kg’s) as specified by the manufacturer when fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle.
Pedders now offer a GVM+ upgrade solution for selected models to assist in compliance for GVM and axle ratings. Through exhaustive and detailed testing, the Pedders GVM+ Upgrade Kits have been approved by (Commonwealth) Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.
Maybe you’re unsure about the GVM of your vehicle or if you think that you are running your vehicle over the legal weight limit. Or maybe you’re looking into towing uprades. If so, book your car into one of our Pedders outlets for a Pedders Tow & Load Assessment. With the use of our approved Pedders Tow & Load Assessment outlets, we can check the axle weight and corner weights of your vehicle to determine the overall weight of your vehicle. Additionally we can then advise you if your vehicle is overloaded and what options are available for your vehicle.
