S & B Commercials, a South East Mercedes-Benz van dealership, has expanded workshop capacity at its new van centre in West Thurrock with the installation of a light commercial four-post lift from TotalKare.
Part of leading automotive group Motus Holdings (UK) Ltd, the dealer also operates 24-hour workshops in Welham Green, Stansted and Hatfield, where 300 staff specialise in the sale and maintenance of Mercedes-Benz and FUSO commercial vehicles.
The light commercial four-post lift is a recent addition to TotalKare’s product portfolio and is an ideal solution for busy workshops where a permanent lifting position is required. It has a lifting capacity of 6,500kg, platform lengths ranging from 5.1 to 6 metres and additional options available including jacking beams and lighting.
It can also be surface or recess-mounted and supplied with ‘drive on’ or ‘drive through’ options.
Ideal solution for service and quality checks
Chris Bowden, Group Quality & Compliance Manager for S & B Commercials, said: “The lift is an ideal solution to our Van Service operation, giving us the flexibility to carry out both service and quality control checks. The four post lift also future-proofs us with the option of utilising the equipment for MOT testing if required.”
Tristan Johnston, Product Manager for TotalKare, concluded: “We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with S & B Commercials for many years through the provision of our mobile column lifts.
“Now we are supporting its expansion further through the supply of our new light commercial four-post lift, which is perfect for lifting long wheel base vans.”
TotalKare is the UK’s number one supplier for heavy-duty vehicle lifting solutions and aftersales care, providing mobile column lifts, fixed four and two-post lifts, brake testers, training solutions and a comprehensive suite of ancillary products.
