Vehicle Body Builder

Do you like assembling and dismantling engines and other mechanical devices? Do you enjoy working with your hand? Does the world of vehicle building interest you? Then becoming a Vehicle Body Builder could be the career for you.

Vehicle Body Builders design and build chassis for vehicles like trucks, trailers, light delivery vehicles and buses.

In modern factories where almost everything is mechanised, vehicle body builders specialise in one sector of the manufacturing process such as attaching door panels to the body of the vehicle.

Working from plans, drawings and specifications, they measure out materials, saw or cut them to size and fit and weld them together to form chassis.
