Tankers & SLP Testing

Ellesmere Port has strong links to the petroleum industry due to its proximity to Shell Stanlow refinery. At E C Truck & Van, we have catered for both the local and regional fuel distribution companies for many years, building up both knowledge and a team of experienced staff that specialise in all aspects of the servicing and maintenance needs of road tankers.  This has created and built up a strong network of trade associates that allows us to offer companies, owners and drivers alike, the opportunity of a one stop operation. These can include:-

  • Servicing and repair of vehicles and trailers to comply with VOSA and vehicle ‘O’ Licence regulations.
  • Service, repair and testing of loading systems.
  • Service maintenance and repair of ancillary equipment covering PTO, Pumping systems, Hydraulics and pneumatic systems.


Organise booking in, in line with customers specific requirements:-

  • Safe Load Pass scheme inspections.
  • 2 yearly tank vapour test required by Safe Load Scheme.
  • 3 yearly ADR leak proof test required by European ADR legislation.

All of our commercial vehicle repairs are carried out at our premises, with our trade associates in conjunction with our technicians. In the event that any retesting is required, this can normally be carried out on site, the same day resulting in the vehicle only having to make a single visit, therefore saving extra costs and minimising vehicle downtime.
