    19. 5 CRITICAL SAFETY CHECKS FOR USING MOBILE COLUMN LIFTS

    19. 5 CRITICAL SAFETY CHECKS FOR USING MOBILE COLUMN LIFTS

    No matter how you go about it, lifting a 10-tonne (or heavier) vehicle is serious business.

    And despite all the rigorous testing and meticulous design that comes with 40 years of supplying our flagship Mobile Column Lifts, there’s one universal truth that applies to every workplace in the country: A tool is only as safe as the person using it.

    18. TIGHT ON SPACE? HOW MOBILE EQUIPMENT CAN HELP UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL

    18. TIGHT ON SPACE? HOW MOBILE EQUIPMENT CAN HELP UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL

    When you’re working with vehicles, space is at a premium.

    And unless you’re running a workshop in an expansive warehouse premises, you need to squeeze the most value out of every precious square metre you have.

    So how can you make sure that every inch of your workshop is being put to good use on a daily basis?

    With the kind of equipment that’s flexible, mobile, and adaptable to different spaces and different levels of demand.

    Here’s how mobile equipment can help to give you higher capacity, greater productivity, and the versatility you need to match a wider range of jobs and contracts:

    17. SUMMER IS COMING – IS YOUR FLEET AIR CON-READY?

    17. SUMMER IS COMING – IS YOUR FLEET AIR CON-READY?

    Although the UK isn’t known for its blinding hot summers, your air con system is usually used more often than think! Whether it’s cold in the morning and you need warming up, or it’s a hot summers day and you need cooling down.

    The unpredictability of the weather means you need certainty in your air con – you never know when your drivers will need it, and you never know how much use it’s going to get.

    In fact, long periods without use can actually be detrimental to the functioning of air conditioning systems, with damage to seals and leakage being a particular problem.

    But here’s the good news:

    Servicing your fleet’s air conditioning has never been easier.

    We’ve just launched a full range of brand-new tools from Waeco to help you service your fleet’s A/C systems – from fully automatic service units to the analysis kits you need to keep your vehicles and your drivers safe.

    Here’s what you need to know:

    16. 9 QUESTIONS YOU NEED TO ASK BEFORE INVESTING IN A BRAKE TESTER

    16. 9 QUESTIONS YOU NEED TO ASK BEFORE INVESTING IN A BRAKE TESTER

    When your workshop was young and your fleet was small, it probably made sense to outsource your brake testing to a test centre with its own brake tester.

    Equipment can be costly, with an up-front investment that takes time to recover – and it’s not always clear how long you’ll have to wait to start seeing savings.

    But as your company grows (and your fleet grows with it), the long-term costs of outsourced tests can start to outweigh the short-term costs of buying your own brake testers.

    For every business with a fleet, there’s a point in their journey where the investment makes sense – and we’re here to help you find it.

    So, whether it’s an in-ground brake tester or mobile version you’re thinking about investing in, here are the 9 questions you need to ask before you can justify bringing your brake testing in-house:

    15. IS IT TIME TO PART EXCHANGE YOUR OLD MOBILE COLUMN LIFTS?

    15. IS IT TIME TO PART EXCHANGE YOUR OLD MOBILE COLUMN LIFTS?

    We’ve been in the mobile column lift game for a long time. (41 years, if you’re counting!)

    We’re proud of our exceptional quality and the robust safety features we put into every lift we build. But we’ve seen first-hand just how far and fast the technology has progressed in that time.

    Our latest mobile column lifts (like the T8DC and T8AC) are built on that progression – taking those same robust features and high-quality builds, and improving on them in almost every way.

    And if you’re currently running a workshop with our RG, MVL, SVL or Series IV lifts, you could save some serious money by upgrading through our part exchange scheme.

    14. THE WASTE OIL EQUIPMENT USED BY WINNING WORKSHOPS

    When you’re running a vehicle workshop, it’s all too easy to focus on the big-ticket machinery – the lifts, the pits, and the high-tech testing equipment.

    But if you want to run the tightest ship you can (with efficiency and safety as a top priority) you need to take care of the everyday tasks, too.

    And when you’re servicing vehicles on a daily basis, oils and fluids can become a serious hassle without the right equipment.

    So to help you get to grips with the finer points of oil and waste oil management, we’ve put together the top 5 pieces of oil-management kit that every vehicle workshop needs.
