Commercial Vehicle Sales, Spares & Repairs

Bodywork Designed & Built to Customer Specification

SMLRS Ltd is a small company managed by Alan Lock based in the market town of South Molton on the edge of Exmoor, specialising in Sales and Repairs of commercial vehicles in North Devon.

The company offers a repair and maintenance facility for large commercial vehicles and trailers including regular safety check inspections and servicing to enable operators to comply with O-Licence requirements. Being based on the same business park as the local VOSA (HGV) test station we prepare and present many vehicles for their annual MOT inspection.

Over the last few years we have begun to specialise in the repair and maintenance of trailers, now having the latest test equipment for Haldex EBS trailer braking systems.

With close links to agriculture and in particular livestock haulage, SMLRS Ltd is the sole South West agent for Houghton-Parkhouse, the largest manufacturer of specialist livestock transporters in the UK. Based in Cumbria they produce what is probably the best range of livestock transporters available today. SMLRS Ltd are original equipment suppliers of the renowned VBG drawbar coupling range, we can alter the rear of your chassis and hitch you up, or supply parts direct to you.

SMLRS Ltd can also supply used commercial vehicles. We specialise in the supply of rigid vehicles and used close coupled trailers. We often have a stock of used trailers which are available for hire.

We are now able to take payment by card if required for goods and services supplied. A 2% Surcharge will be applied for account payments.

We still have our Demonstrator which is fitted with an H-frame slam door and Fly-to-roof hydraulic rear deck so that you can see how it actually operates. The design is the same in a larger transporter. We are now able to ‘Hire’ you our ‘Demonstrator’ should you need an additional vehicle, although you will need to have your own ‘Insurance Cover’ in place. Should you wish to see our Demonstrator or discuss a replacement livestock transporter, give us a call on 01769 572220 and we will gladly come to your premises or meet you at your local livestock market.

We thank you for taking the time to read this page and if you think we could help you with your requirements, please give us a call on 01769 572220 and we may be able to assist.
