Willship International have teamed up with a compliance facility in both Auckland and Christchurch and we can now offer full vehicle compliance into these ports as part of our shipping service. The best way to think of NZ vehicle compliance is like a safety certificate or a warrant of fitness on steroids – your vehicle needs to be thoroughly inspected to ensure it’s safe for use on NZ roads.
We are more than thorough when making sure your vehicle is compliant. We start with interior trimming which offers a TSD agent full access behind the interior trim of your vehicle. They will inspect the condition and structure, seats and seat belts while gathering all relevant documentation for your vehicle. A VIN Plate is then assigned while we put your interior back together.
From here we inspect the underbody and mechanical components via hoist to view the brakes, suspension, tyres, engine components, and vehicle structure. We measure and examine all mechanical parts for OEM minimum requirements as dictated by NZTA. The goal here is to confirm that your vehicle structure is sound. We then run a final inspection of vehicles emissions, lighting and brakes to ensure everything is functional and performing as it should be.
If it is all green lights for your vehicle, we issue a Warrant of Fitness sticker (WOF) and prepare an MR2A form for registration. Should there be a need for any repairs which may be discovered during the above process, we will give you a no-obligation quote which you can choose to proceed with or opt for your own repairer. Please ensure that all repairs are to NZTA requirements.
Our repairs facility is a cutting-edge area which focuses on the necessary repairs to get you safely on the road. Our team of mechanics have over 50 years of experience, the finest equipment available and process that ensure we complete your job in a time-efficient manner.
Any modifications that surpass factory specifications require an LVV. These can include adjustable suspension, larger wheels, engine modifications, roll cage fitments, and other popular mods. An independent certified inspector will need to sign off on any modifications to ensure that all LVVTA requirements are met. We can complete any required repairs in our workshop to help save you time.
In the unfortunate event of any structural damage, corrosion or previous damage repairs your vehicle may fail the inspection. This process is carried out by an independent workshop in conjunction with a Repair Certifier Inspector. The certifier dictates the process and guidelines for repair to ensure OEM requirements are met. You have the option to organise your own certifier, however, keep in mind that the correct documentation must be supplied to complete the compliance process.
