An award-winning Renault Trucks dealer has selected TotalKare to provide a full suite of mobile vehicle lifts for its new Nottingham workshop.
RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has four sites covering the East Midlands, which provides new and used sales, service and parts, as well as a range of rental options through its sister business RH Rentals.
Its new multi-bay workshop will provide repair and maintenance services and benefits from the recent installation of three sets of TotalKare’s cable-free T8DC mobile column lifts and accompanying trailer beam and support stands.
The T8DC lifts will be complemented by an additional set of G8AC wash bay mobile column lifts, a fully galvanised solution with sealed bearings for outdoor use that was launched in the UK earlier this year at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
Both systems lift up to 7,500kg per column and feature adjustable forks that enable the safe and efficient lifting of vehicles with a range of wheel diameters.
All four sets of lifts will be supported by a TotalKare ‘AfterKare’ service package, including two service visits a year and Reports of Through Examination.
“We chose TotalKare because it is the market leader in this field,” said Stephen Astill, Group Aftermarket Manager for RHCV.
“We need reliability so we can ensure we continue to meet our customer workload demands and prevent downtime. Moving into our new premises, we wanted a mixture of lifts and conventional pits and, working closely with TotalKare, we came to a solution that is delivering more efficient results and reduced downtime.”
He continued: “I believe we have chosen the right brand and product application for reliability and value for money.”
Adam Bowser, Area Sales Manager for TotalKare, went on to add; “Unlike other lifts on the market that are supplied with covers, the G8AC has been expertly designed to ensure many years of trouble-free use in outdoor and wash bay conditions – at a fraction of the cost of a fixed lift.
“By introducing the G8AC and T8DC mobile column lifts, RH Commercial Vehicles new workshop will benefit from a truly flexible combination of vehicle lifting solutions…all supported by TotalKare’s comprehensive service offering.”
TotalKare is the UK’s number one supplier of heavy-duty vehicle lifting/testing solutions and aftersales care, providing four and two post lifts, forklifter ramp systems and a comprehensive suite of ancillary products, including transmission jacks, trailer beams and support stands.
The company also launched its new brake tester range earlier this year, the first time the business has introduced non-lifting products to its portfolio.
