A fast fit centre in Queensferry is claiming a major breakthrough in the fast fit industry, after investing £35,000 in new workshop equipment.
The first investment was made in a states of the art wheel alignment system. The Hunter 100 imaging aligner boasts quick, precise measurement readings ensuring motorists receive the most accurate wheel alignment. Its high quality is recognised and used by some of the top car manufacturers, including Mercedes and BMW.
The investment also includes the purchase of two Ravaglioli ATL/OPTL MOT testing ramps, one for Queensferry and a further ramp for the nearby Northwich centre. The ramps introduce an alternative approach to MOT testing, requiring only one person, as opposed to two, to carry out testing.
HiQ centre manager Bob White claims the adjustments have already been welcomed by motorists, he said: "We have had various compliments about both pieces of equipment since their purchase. One customer, who has been coming to us for over nine and a half years, was one of the first to receive service from the new Hunter wheel alignment system and he said himself that it was "absolutely fantastic".
"Identifying poor wheel alignment can lead to increased fuel consumption, which means customers are saving in the process. The new ramps are also proving more economical as the one-man testing enables us to carry out MOT's quicker, with the requirement of only one mechanic. This not only allows the technicians to be more efficient, but it reduces the waiting time for our customers"
Not only is the technology helping to improve motorists' fuel economy, but it is also spotting defective and dangerous tyres at an early stage, thus reducing the potential of serious accidents.
Stuart Carr, HiQ fast fit manager, said: "The investment is most certainly a positive step for the both the Queensferry and Northwich centres and we are delighted to hear of the immediate positive response from motorists.
HiQ aims to provide the best service to customers, using top-of-the range equipment and the Bobs investment is a great example of our commitment to this"
