Commercial Vehicle Inspections

Birchler’s Automotive is a Certified Class D Inspection facility that can come to you through the convenience of on-site state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Our EVT diesel certified mechanics will perform inspections at your location using our mobile commercial and 7D vehicle inspection equipment.  Commercial vehicles, trailers and converter dollies are now subject to the enhanced Massachusetts Vehicle Check. The annual Massachusetts safety inspection is now equivalent to the U.S. DOT inspection, which means Birchler’s is able to easily help your company complete both with one inspection at your location.

What vehicles must have the Class D Inspection? Single, full, or semi-trailers, used in commerce, that have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 3,000 lbs or commercial vehicle/trailer combinations with a gross combined weight rating (GCVWR) of over 10,000 lbs will be subject to this new requirement, as will all heavy duty motor vehicles (over 10,000 lbs GVWR) and converter dollies.

Fee Structure
Fees for commercial vehicle inspections are market-based. This means that in addition to paying $35 for the sticker, a vehicle owner is also charged an hourly shop rate.
