RH Commercial Vehicles Returns To Totalkare For Testing Equipment


RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has strengthened its relationship with Totalkare after introducing in-house brake testing equipment at its new Newark site allowing them to save considerable time and money.

Leading East Midlands independent Renault Trucks distributor RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) opened its new site in May this year. The new 20,000 sq ft facility features a new 8,000 sq ft workshop with three high bays, as well as sales support for new and used vehicles and rentals.

The award-winning Renault Trucks dealer has six sites across the East Midlands including Newark, as well as Nottingham, Alfreton, Leicester, and Northampton, plus a recent acquisition in Peterborough.

After recently acquiring four sets of cable-free mobile column lifts, the mobile brake tester will be a great addition to RHCV’s new workshop. This will help keep their customers trucks on the road and minimise downtime with their team of experienced technicians, offering a range of repair and maintenance services.

By not having to drive to and from a test centre for an outsourced brake test, RH Commercial Vehicles will not only save time, but fuel, vehicle wear and tear and the cost of the test itself too.

Totalkare’s DVSA-approved mobile brake tester has a simple, yet strong and flexible design that allows it to be used directly on a wide array of workshop floor surfaces and can be installed both indoor and outdoor in most environments. The standard model can test up to 16,000kg axle load and for heavier axle loads, an upgraded version that can test up to 20,000kg is also available.

It comes supplied with a tablet unit that communicates wirelessly with the brake tester, enabling tests to be conducted with ease from the comfort of the driver’s seat. In addition, the brake tester is also supplied with computer, printer, monitor and cabinet, and is connected equipment-ready.

James Daykin at RH Commercial Vehicles said “We currently have Totalkare’s mobile column lifts across a number of our sites and decided to return Totalkare for testing equipment due to the quality of their products. We are now looking forward to the reduced costs by bringing our brake tests in-house.”

“The mobile brake tester has a number of benefits and features, from its space saving design to the significant cost savings by neither the vehicle or its driver spending time driving to and from the test centre,” said Adam Bowser, Sales Director at Totalkare.
