Northside's Promise


When you purchase a vehicle from Northside Truck and Van Ltd if a Promise is given, you can rest easy with the knowledge that the vehicle has been checked and prepared to a standard required to pass a PMI inspection with NO advisories. This is MOT pass standard. Each vehicle will have also passed a brake test to MOT standards and have a friction material measurement at least of the minimum promise agreement period. If anything went wrong with your used truck, it’s likely to be covered under our promise with preparation performed at this level. To help answer any questions you might have about the Northside Promise for your used vehicle, Northside Truck Van Ltd has put together this helpful guide.
