GVM Upgrade Kits in Kadina
Make sure you are Locked and Loaded with Pedders GVM Upgrade Solutions!
All Vehicles have a legally allocated Gross Vehicle Mass rating (GVM) and Payload Capacity which dictates how much a vehicle can carry in both passengers and cargo in the cab and tray bed based on weight. The GVM rating is the maximum allowable weight (in kg’s) your vehicle can safely carry when fully loaded, as specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
Essentially the maximum legal weight at which you can safely drive your particular vehicle, what can be done if you need to carry loads that exceed this weight? If you regularly carry very large loads for work purposes or are very serious about what you take along while travelling around for leisure, we have the solution for you.
Pedders GVM Upgrade Solutions offer one of the best suspension upgrades for your vehicle and are backed by the Pedders nationwide network of certified installers and service centres.
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 add up and decrease the payload available to you.
Importantly, if you have purchased a cab/chassis, the weight of any tray or service body is also considered to be part of the “kerb weight” and therefore further reduces the available payload even further.
NYP Car Fix offer Pedders GVM+ upgrade solutions for selected models to assist in compliance for GVM and axle ratings. Pedders GVM+ Upgrade Kits are approved by (Commonwealth) Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.
If you’re unsure about the GVM of your vehicle or wonder if you are operating your vehicle above the legal weight limit for it's class, book your car into NYP Car Fix for a Tow & Load Assessment. Using approved Pedders Tow & Load Assessment methods we can check the axle and corner weights of your vehicle to determine overall weight.
NYP Car Fix can then advise you if your vehicle is overloaded along with advice on the options available for your particular vehicle.

Once the GVM Upgrade kit has been installed to a new vehicle a compliance plate will be fitted. The new vehicle can then be registered with new increased G.V.M. This allows the vehicle to be legally used in all states of Australia.
For vehicles that have already been road registered, the vehicle is to be inspected by an authorised Automotive Engineer in that state and be issued with a compliance certificate.
