Alan Firmin enhances workshop with in-ground brake tester20 January 2022

Family haulage and transport business Alan Firmin has updated its Kent workshop with a Totalkare 7000 in-ground brake tester, capable of a high daily throughput of fully-laden light and heavy vehicles with an axle load up to 18,000kg.

By not having to drive to and from a test centre for an outsourced brake test, Alan Firmin will not only save time, but fuel, vehicle wear and tear and the cost of the test itself too, according to Totalkare. The result is increased fleet availability, delivering further value to the company’s customers.

Totalkare’s in-ground brake tester is HGV/ATF DVSA-approved and can be supplied with optional upgrades to enhance its suitability to meet the toughest of vehicle inspection centre or workshop requirements. The brake tester comes with a PC, printer, monitor, cabinet, and tablet device as standard. The latter enabling brake tests to be conducted from the driver’s seat in a matter of minutes.

Stuart Joyce, head of fleet & compliance at Alan Firmin said: “Due to the consistent growth of our business, it was a no brainer to save any additional time and costs and to bring brake testing in-house. We were very impressed with the installation of the brake tester in our workshop, which is now helping us to test vehicles regularly throughout the day.”
