VEHICLE PREPARATION CENTRE
Garage Equipment’s recent completed project has been Ayr Prep Centre
Our initial design brief consisted of a 12 bay used car preparation workshop that could process up to 800 vehicles per month. The design brief also asked for a twin Class IV & VII MOT testing facility and a full Smart Repair Centre.
The project specification required a complete air, oil & water delivery solution and LEV Extraction, to cover 2 workshops and the twin MOT test bays.
The biggest challenge for this project was the timescale we had to complete the work. This was achieved by ensuring all the required equipment was in stock prior to the start date and coordinating our engineering teams, to ensure that we could dedicate sufficient man hours to complete the project within the tight deadline. Hard work and positivity ensured Garage Equipment hit the deadline!
A fully equipped Smart Repair centre was also installed by the team, to ensure that all cosmetic preparation could be carried out on site. This consisted of one oven, a paint mixing room and a new dust plant system. We also installed a wheel lathe, along with tyre changing and balancing equipment , to facilitate the refurbishment of Diamond Cut wheels up to 22 inch.
Furthermore, a new three bay Covered WET valet bay was required, this was completed with 3 Electrajet Cabinet pressure washers to ensure all year round operations.
12 Bay workshop consisting of 4 x RAV518NL 3.0 Tonne Scissor lifts and 8 x RAV370.32 - 3.2 Tonne Hydraulic Lifts plus 1 x Class IV ATL and 1 x Class VII ATL MOT Bays and a compelte RAV Tyre Package. The facility has a fully fitted air, oil and water dispensing reels which are post mounted for each bay. A custom designed LEV system with extraction drops to all bays has been installed throughout the facility.
SMART REPAIR FACILITY
This state of the art facility has been fitted out with an Airstream Smart Repair high top oven and paint mixing room together with a diamond tipped alloy wheel CNC machine. We also installed the Hofmann Megaplan 713XL Evo tyre changer. The team installed a multi bay dust extraction system as the workshop has room for 6 vehicles to be preped at all times.
