Hills waste

One of the UK’s largest family-owned waste management companies has increased their workshop efficiency following the introduction of mobile column lifts from Totalkare.

Hills Waste Solutions has been providing waste management and recycling services to private and public sector customers for over half a century. A pioneer in using waste as a resource, Hills Waste Solutions identified the requirement for vehicle lifting in their workshop to support ongoing maintenance of their fleet based at their Bristol depot.

Due to the narrow workshop bay, Totalkare’s state-of-the-art T8DC cable-free mobile column lift was the perfect solution in this circumstance. The T8DC mobile column lifts can be easily manoeuvred around the workshop, providing flexibility of lifting positions. The adjustable wheel forks facilitate the lifting of vehicles with a range of wheel diameters and the lifts can be configured in sets of four, six, or eight providing a solution for any lifting requirement.

Hills Waste Solutions acquired the mobile column lifts on a lease hire contract which includes a full repair and maintenance service package from Totalkare for peace of mind.  This includes two field service engineer visits per year as standard.

Nathan Carr, Fleet Manager at Hills Waste Solutions said “Totalkare recognised the limitations of our workshop space and provided an ideal solution for our lifting requirements. The lifts are helping us to increase our productivity in maintaining our vehicles which are integral to our business.”

John Ray, Area Sales Manager at Totalkare explained: “After initially being interested in a fixed four post lift, space limitations made a mobile column lift solution far more practical. The T8DC is popular with our customers due to its build quality, flexibility and ease of use, and is perfect for Hills Waste Solutions. Through our comprehensive service offering, they will also benefit from our world class support.”
