A leading truck dealer for DAF, MAN and Hino Motors has boosted the efficiency of its workshop following the addition of a new lifting solution.
MTC Northwest, which operates a 12-bay service facility in Knowsley, has invested in a Two Post Lift from TotalKare that will make it easier to repair and service long wheel base vans such as the MAN TGE (pictured above on TotalKare’s stand at the recent Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham).
The telescopic arms of the latest addition provide great flexibility and, when the lifting arms are fully extended, it is capable of raising a safe working load of 5,500kg.
This installation complements an existing investment in mobile column lifts that have been playing an important role in day-to-day activities in Merseyside for nearly 15 years.
Quick set-up for swift vehicle inspection
“We are working seven days a week to meet the needs of our growing client base so any means of increasing efficiency and improving the speed in which we can carry out repairs is something we want to embrace,” explained Martyn Allen, Aftersales Director for MTC Northwest.
“TotalKare has been a fantastic resource and we wasted no time in investing in acquiring its Two Post Lift system. The simple drive-in action allows quick set-up for swift vehicle inspection, whilst the flexibility of this latest solution is great for scheduling in jobs when deadlines are extremely tight.”
Ideal for long wheel base vans
Brian Young, National Account Manager for TotalKare, added his support: “We’ve enjoyed an excellent business relationship with MTC Northwest for the best part of 15 years.
“The addition of our electro-hydraulic Two Post Lift to their busy workshop is going to boost productivity – it’s ideal for long wheel base vans like the MAN TGE, which are proving extremely popular these days.”
TotalKare is the UK’s number one supplier for heavy duty vehicle lifting solutions and aftersales care.
From its headquarters in the Black Country, the company has been supplying mobile vehicle lifts to the UK market for over 35 years, selling more than 6,000 sets of mobile lifts to customers ranging from multi-national operators to independent workshops.
