Waste management specialists B&M Waste Services are set to benefit from considerable time and cost savings following the introduction of a Totalkare brake testing solution at its Wirral head office.
The North-West based, family-owned business which employs over 200 people was previously outsourcing the brake testing of their Wirral fleet of 30 vehicles to a designated test lane. Recognising the considerable cost to the business, they turned to Totalkare to implement a mobile brake tester solution that enables testing to be conducted at the workshop.
Totalkare installed a mobile brake tester with bi-directional rollers. It can test up to 20,000kg per axle with testing made simple thanks to the supplied tablet which enables tests to be carried out from the driver’s seat of the vehicle. With no civil work required, installation was simple and straightforward.
“Bringing the brake testing in-house is already saving us a significant amount of time, and we estimate the brake tester investment will have offset the cost of outsourcing within three years,” said Andy Eames of B&M Waste Services, “We were impressed with the build quality of the brake tester and simplicity of the testing process.”
“Totalkare has been supporting B&M Waste Services through the provision of vehicle lifting equipment for 15 years,” said George Georgiou, Area Sales Manager for Totalkare, “Our mobile brake tester is a robust and flexible solution that will not only save the customer money but will free up valuable time to help drive improved workshop efficiency.”
