Vehicle Inspection Pits

A vehicle inspection pit makes access to the underside of your vehicle easy, allowing you to work in a safe, well-lit environment with all your tools to hand.



Over the last ten years or so there has been a growing understanding that vehicle inspection pits have a lot to offer. A great benefit of installing a pit in your workshop is that once its installed, it can last forever. A pit makes it possible to work underneath a vehicle at the same time as above the vehicle which can increase productivity in your workshop. Totalkare can offer a range of vehicle inspection pit lengths from six metres upwards, and can also supply and install class 4 and class 7 pits.

Totalkare can cover everything from the preparation for the installation of stand-alone brake testers through to the installation of multi-pit facilities and underground workshops.

We’ve used Totalkare for the last 20 years…

Having used Totalkare for the last 20 years, we were confident they would find us an ideal replacement to our old wash bay set up. The galvanised four post provides us with a much safer and more durable solution, and we are very pleased with this latest addition to our depot.
