Axle repairs, near Horsham, West Sussex
Bent or damaged axle? Don’t buy a new one – bring it to us! We repair and straighten axles on large and specialist vehicles – from HGV tippers to full-size steam traction engines and even vintage cars.
Faster and much cheaper than buying a new axle, enthusiasts and business owners have trusted us with axle repairs for over 85 years.
Axle Repair Methods
Bring your damaged axle to us and we’ll fix it using our in-house facilities. Most repairs can be made within a week; you’ll be back on the road in next to no time.
Vintage vehicle axle repairs
Your pride and joy needs special care. After setting the bent axle on a heavyweight, flat engineering bench, we clamp and measure it before carefully applying heat to straighten it. A certified non-destructive crack test tells you the axle is safe to use.
Truck or trailer drive axle repairs
After setting your axle up in a large lathe to pinpoint the bend, strategic heat placement is often all that’s needed. If the damage is more substantial we cut off the broken end and replace with a new piece that’s been machined to specification.
Broken axle repairs
As well as bent axles, you can bring your broken ½ shaft, damaged bearing seats and wheel bearing threads to us for repair. With experience in DAF, Volvo, Scania and SAF trailer axles, your fleet will be back to strength for less money and in less time than it would take you to order and fit a new axle.
This new specialist service is handled on a case by case basis. Contact us to talk through your needs.
