Maximising efficiency with workshop equipment

Recovery specialist Neil Yates has some pretty big kit to service but Totalkare was equal to the task of supplying workshop equipment that could meet the challenge. CVW gets the lowdown.

Neil Yates Recovery has partnered with Totalkare to invest in cutting-edge workshop equipment. The Rochester-based operator is boosting its workshop efficiency by investing in Totalkare’s cable-free mobile column lifts, mobile brake tester and mobile shaker plates, all of which will play a crucial role in ensuring its extensive fleet of twenty recovery trucks remains in peak operational condition and fit for the most demanding recovery missions. Serving both the UK and Europe means there’s an added incentive to make sure the trucks are 100% ready for those 24/7 call outs.

Totalkare’s T8DC mobile column lifts have proven to be indispensable for Neil Yates Recovery. These cable-free column lifts offer unmatched flexibility and efficiency, making the process of lifting and maintaining vehicles safer and more convenient. The T8DC’s advanced technology ensures precise control and safety during lifting operations, a crucial aspect when dealing with a fleet of this magnitude.

The other advantage of the T8DC is the ability to use it in combinations of four, six or eight columns. With a fleet of predominantly tri-axle vehicles, Neil Yates Recovery’s investment in a set of six columns provides full fleet lifting capability, while the T8DC’s adjustable forks come into play when switching between vehicles for maintenance.

The addition of Totalkare’s mobile brake tester has streamlined the company’s brake testing procedures, which is vital for the safety and compliance of its vehicles. It has not only saved precious time but also contributed to cost reductions by bringing brake testing in-house, a crucial factor in the competitive world of vehicle recovery. This efficiency ensures that their trucks are roadworthy and ready for action at a moment’s notice.

These shaker plates allow for comprehensive testing of vehicle components, guaranteeing that they are in optimal condition, ready to handle the most challenging recovery operations.

Jo Williams, workshop manager at Neil Yates Recovery, enthusiastically endorsed the new equipment, emphasising their significance in keeping their fleet battle-ready. “Totalkare’s products have been a game-changer for us. With our extensive fleet, it’s crucial that every vehicle is in perfect shape. The T8DC mobile column lifts, mobile brake tester, and shaker plates have not only improved our productivity but also instilled confidence that our trucks are always ready for action. We are very satisfied with Totalkare’s support throughout this journey.”

Adam Bowser, sales and marketing director at Totalkare, underlined the advantages of these investments for Neil Yates Recovery. “Our T8DC mobile column lifts offer unrivalled flexibility and precision in vehicle maintenance, while the mobile brake tester and shaker plates bring substantial savings in time and costs. These investments will undoubtedly bolster Neil Yates Recovery’s ability to provide uninterrupted 24/7 support across the UK and Europe by ensuring vehicle safety, compliance, and operational efficiency.”
