    I send mine in with an empty tank of water as their lift stuggles to lift it if I don't.

    I have no problems with that as I get to go under the van whilst they are doing it and have a good poke around. They also can't find things wrong that don't really need doing.

    The cargo bay of a van is not inspected for an MOT.

    I send mine in with empty tank also just to make it easier on their lift.

    That's a good point peter rogers. I've never had that issue as I had a spring break and I replaced them with heavy duty springs, the same as they fit on 3.5t motor homes. The back hardly drops with a full tank of water on board. I still adhere to the payload limits of the swb one.
