Orwell Truck & Van Norwich enhance workshop with Totalkare wash bay solution

South East Mercedes-Benz van dealership Orwell Truck & Van Norwich has enhanced its workshop by introducing a mobile wash bay lifting solution from Totalkare.

The dealership, part of the Motus Holdings automotive group, repairs and maintains a mix of light commercial and heavy goods vehicles across multiple sites in the South East.

Now productivity is set to increase following investment in a set of G8AC wash bay mobile column lifts from lifting and testing specialists Totalkare.

Designed specifically with outdoor wash bay use in mind, the G8AC mobile column lift from Totalkare is a first for the UK, featuring sealed bearings and a fully galvanised finish to provide long term protection from water ingress.  Configurable in sets of four, six or eight to accommodate a range of heavy commercial vehicles, the G8AC also features adjustable forks to suit a range of wheel diameters, making it a truly versatile outdoor lifting solution.

The introduction of the wash bay lifts is the latest investment in Totalkare equipment from S & B Commercials in a relationship that stretches back several years – with the group boasting more than 15 sets of mobile column lift and several fixed post lifts across multiple sites.  And for added peace of mind, the G8AC lifts have been added to S & B Commercials’ group-wide service contract, also fulfilled by Totalkare.

“Having a flexible wash bay lifting application was important to us and after reviewing several options, Totalkare was the only supplier offering a fit for purpose solution,” said Chris Bowden, Group Quality & Compliance Manager for Orwell Truck & Van, “Not only do the G8AC lifts help immeasurably from a wash bay perspective, but on drier days they also boost the Norwich workshop’s capacity.”

Adam Bowser, Area Sales Manager for Totalkare, commented “We’ve enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Orwell Truck & Van for many years.  The G8AC lifts are the perfect for those seeking a wash bay vehicle lifting solution but are not keen on installing a permanent fixed post lift, giving ultimate flexibility.”
