PCL Group has purchased a two post lift and additional cable-free mobile column lift from TotalKare as it looks to save time and reduce manual labour at its service centre in Maidstone, Kent.

The MAN franchisee in the south-east of England said the installations had delivered immediate operational benefits to the company, including increased lifting speed, 10% efficiency improvements and lower capital outlay in its workshops.

“We offer a wide range of commercial transport-related support through our Service, Parts and Road Tanker specialist services,” said John Vickery, managing director at PCL Group.

“By installing these new vehicle lifts from TotalKare, we have ensured that we can continue delivering unparalleled customer service to our clients, whilst also offering them shorter turnarounds due to the faster lift speeds and the reduction in manual labour.”

Introducing additional mobile column lifts has given PCL Group an additional vehicle pit above ground and one that can be easily moved to one side when not in use. 

Adam Bowser, area sales manager for TotalKare, said that the two post and T8DC lifts took less than a day to install, minimising disruption at a very busy time for the service centre. The T8DC cable-free mobile column lift can be powered from a 230V wall socket and can safely lift up to 7,500kg per column.

“We have supported PCL Group for more than two decades and look forward to working with the business as it continues to expand,” he said.
