One of the UK’s leading vehicle body manufacturers is helping prospective buyers tackle the maze of regulatory and legislative change with a new guide to ensure they are covered now and in the future.

Ingimex, based in Telford, has created its Questions to Ask Your Provider service. This is aimed at firms looking to purchase and invest in vehicle bodies for their fleet. Additionally, ensuring they know some useful questions to ask any would-be provider when it comes to health and safety requirements. The complementary guide is available to download at It features several questions as well as top tips about aspects relating to health and safety. These include requirements on project-specific work such as Crossrail, and standards of European Load Containment.

“Many of our customers approach us knowing exactly what they need and want from their vehicle bodies,” explained Ingimex’s Managing Director, Justin Gallen. “However, there are other considerations to take into account when designing a vehicle body, and these are often not well known by prospective buyers.

“We have designed this guide not just to help our customers understand the importance of thinking about their legal obligations when it comes to health and safety practices, but for others across the industry who are thinking about investing and developing their fleet and want to ensure they receive an end product that is fit-for-purpose and will not disappoint in the future.”

Ingimex is a leading manufacturer of Dropside, Tipper and Luton Van vehicles, as well as a spare parts specialist. Operating since 1972, Ingimex employs over 60 people; it is recognised as a leading provider of LCV bodies for major chassis manufacturers.
