About the Association
Heavy vehicle alignment services provide specialist services to the transport industry which enable vehicles to operate profitably and safely in the many various environments in which transport services are required.

The primary objectives of heavy vehicle alignment services are to minimise tyre and fuel costs and to improve vehicle safety and reliability by optimising steering and handling characteristics of the vehicles. Also to ensure that mechanical components are not damaged by being subjected to improper stresses caused by misalignment of components.

An important, indirect, benefit is to improve operational safety by reducing driver stress and fatigue by making the vehicle easier to control.

New Zealand Heavy Transport Wheel Aligners are working to establish a profitable and sustainable industry by continually endeavouring to attain these objectives, by developing the best skills and service techniques and by continuing to provide a positive economic benefit to clients.
