Legal GVM Upgrades

GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) is the total legal weight your vehicle places on the road. This includes the vehicle, any accessories, cargo, passengers, even the weight of the fuel in the tank.

If your vehicle exceeds GVM and you happen to get pulled over and weighed, you will be facing hefty fines and demerits, or if you’re involved in an accident, fines and demerits and voided insurance. But much more importantly, driving a vehicle that exceeds GVM is dangerous. Being overloaded will increase the chance of an accident thanks to poor handling, place additional stress on your suspension components and mounts, and your tyres, leading to premature failure.

The reason to pay attention to GVM isn’t the fines, it’s the safety of yourself, your passengers, and drivers you share the road with.

Whether you’re a weekend warrior with an accessory loaded 4WD or a tradie with a ute full of tools, ensuring your vehicle is safe and under it’s legal load carrying capacity is of utmost importance. With years of experience in the 4×4 market, Mountain District 4×4 can provide practical, honest advice to ensure your vehicle is safe and legal on the roads.

CASE STUDY

One of our latest customers was a tradie who only had 100 kilograms to add to his vehicle before he exceeded GVM (with no passengers!) Once we’d finished the GVM Upgrade, he had an extra 450 kilograms, post registration, so he could carry his tools, cargo, and passengers with no problem.
