With over 20,000 sq ft, our workshop allows us to process vehicles that are being imported into the UK all in-house.

Our custom developed systems manage your vehicle through our workshop ensuring works are logged and any images uploaded straight to you to review

Each vehicle is thoroughly checked over on arrival and any damage logged for possible insurance claims. We then check the vehicle for UK compliance issues and any safety issues.

IVA / MOT Modifications

When a car is imported into the UK, it will likely need modifications to conform with UK rules and if under ten years old to pass an IVA Test, these include:

  • Addition of rear fog light
  • Amber indicators to rear of vehicle
  • Indicators and brake lights separate from each other
  • Side repeater indicators
  • Clear side lights to front of vehicle
  • Flat beam or UK pattern on headlights

Over the years we have modified thousands of cars to UK specification and have a team of electrical engineers who have developed safe and effective methods of converting imported cars’ lighting system to UK including our customs light control module.

Lots of examples of the kind of cars we convert to UK specification can be found on our gallery page
