Where can I rent load for MFK of a van (800kg)

Hi guys 🤗, anyone knows where can I rent a load of +- 800kg, like a water container, to do the mfk of the van? (Aarau, Zurich, Solothurn) I'm living in Lenzburg.
Thank you

When I had to do this I borrowed a pallet of paving stones from Landi but I have a good personal relationship with them. Make sure that the the pavers are shrink wrapped as they are hard to secure, I also put a wood sheet on the floor and screwed a bearer in front to stop it moving. Your hand brake should be adjusted in the week before the test as mine held fine but failed the test!

Maybe a farmer for a large water tank?
or go by a trailer garage, they must have such things as they do the MFK for clients.
Just make sure your load is really secured.

Not sure about renting, but you can buy a used, clean IBC off Tutti and fill it to 80% with water: https://www.tutti.ch/de/vi/aargau/ga...rtank/40301975

I'd have the garage do this MFK, too much trouble...

But when I still had a van I did not know about this rule, still passed the test 2 times unladen before I sold it.

I agree, let your garage do it. When I had a T4 van my garage would borrow crates of bottled water from the drinks wholesaler next door.
