Volvo Trucks dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials has upgraded the vehicle lifting capabilities at its Trafford Park and Preston sites, having invested in Totalkare Y-MECH vehicle lifts.

Commenting on the fully galvanised wash bay solution lifts, Chris Schofield, head of procurement at Thomas Hardie Commercials, said: “We needed a solution to the challenge of preparing HGVs for ministry MoTs, whilst maintaining high levels of safety for our operatives. We have done away with using outside pits and the Y-MECH product was a natural choice. Totalkare has shown throughout our two decade-long relationship that they are capable of delivering the high-level of service we demand inside our workshops, and these products extend this to the outside environment.”

Both lifts will be supported by a comprehensive Totalkare aftersales service contract with two routine service engineer visits a year.

Thomas Hardie currently runs some 22 sets of Totalkare’s T8DC mobile column lift across its sites.
