Renault Trucks dealer chooses Totalkare for brand new workshop

safety checks for mobile column lift use

Award-winning Renault Trucks dealer, RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has selected Totalkare to provide a full suite of mobile vehicle lifts for its brand-new Nottingham workshop.

The dealer, part of the Renault Trucks UK Network, has four sites covering the East Midlands, which provides new and used sales, service and parts as well as a range of rental options through its sister company, RH Rentals.  Its new multi-bay workshop in Nottingham will provide repair and maintenance services and benefits from the recent installation of three sets of Totalkare’s cable-free T8DC mobile column lifts and accompanying trailer beam and support stands.

The T8DC mobile column lifts will be complemented by an additional set of G8AC wash bay mobile column lifts – a fully galvanised solution with sealed bearings for outdoor use that Totalkare launched earlier this year at the Commercial Vehicle Show in what is a first for the UK.

More efficient results and reduced downtime

The T8DC and G8AC both lift up to 7,500kg per column and feature adjustable forks that enable the safe and efficient lifting of vehicles with a range of wheel diameters.

All four sets of lifts will be supported by a Totalkare ‘AfterKare’ service package including two service visits a year and Reports of Through Examination.

Stephen Astill, Group Aftermarket Manager for RHCV, said: “We chose Totalkare because they are the market leader in this field. We need reliability so we can ensure we continue to meet our customer workload demands and prevent downtime. Moving into our new premises we wanted a mixture of lifts and conventional pits, and working closely with Totalkare, we came to a solution that has delivered more efficient results and reduced downtime. I believe we have chosen the right brand and product application for reliability and value for money.”

A truly flexible combination of vehicle lifting solutions

Adam Bowser, Area Sales Manager for Totalkare, went on to add; “Unlike other lifts on the market that are supplied with covers, the G8AC has been expertly designed to ensure many years of trouble-free use in outdoor and wash bay conditions – at a fraction of the cost of a fixed lift.

“By introducing the G8AC and T8DC mobile column lifts, RH Commercial Vehicles new workshop will benefit from a truly flexible combination of vehicle lifting solutions…all supported by Totalkare’s comprehensive service offering.”
