C & G Coaches adds Totalkare brake testers
Chatteris-based C & G Coach Services has increased its in-house maintenance capabilities by investing in mobile brake testing equipment from Totalkare.
The addition of this new kit for the coach operator sees it take brake testing in-house that will offer immediate time savings and considerable cost savings over time.
The DVSA-approved brake tester has a simple, yet strong and flexible design, testing up to 16,000kg axle load. Its adjustable feet enable the brake tester to be deployed on uneven ground and still deliver reliable results.
The tablet unit supplied 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 a computer, printer, monitor and cabinet, and is connected equipment ready.
“The product is a great fit as it provides the highest level of road safety for our fleet” – Jody Day, Transport Manager at C & G Coach Services
Jody Day, Transport Manager at C & G Coach Services, said: “We were impressed by Totalkare’s strong reputation and rapid response to our brake tester enquiry. The product is a great fit as it provides the highest level of road safety for our fleet.”
Area Sales Manager at Totalkare, Jack Longstaff, said: “The mobile brake testers will offer C & G Coach Services several benefits. Conducting brake tests in their workshop means neither the vehicle or its driver are wasting time driving to and from the test centre or incurring test fees – over time this will amount to significant time and cost savings.”
