According to sales and marketing director Gary Thomas, the new system is “completely different” to anything else on the market, primarily because set-up is entirely automatic, but also due to its rapid ROI – estimated at anything from days to a couple of months.
“We have stripped out all of the complexity, and produced the first operator-friendly TPMS that can be fitted by absolutely anyone in about three minutes,” states Thomas.
“And the payback on fuel and tyre savings alone is outstanding. On light commercial it can be immediate if it averts the vehicle missing a journey due to a tyre problem. Not to mention the obvious safety improvements,” he adds.
Thomas explains that fitting Fit2Go entails simply removing the dust cap for each tyre, fitting an anti-theft lock nut and then the tyre pressure sensor which replaces the dust cap.
“After that, it’s self-calibrating,” he says, adding that an LED confirms correct operation.
Operators then fit a tax disc size, solar-powered, wireless receiver anywhere sensible inside the windscreen.
“Just press the button on the back of the receiver and watch the lights come up before sticking it to windscreen,” says Thomas.
“As soon as you start your vehicle, it wakes the system and the tyre sensors talk to receiver and auto pair. That’s it.”
Retail price is £109.95, but fleet prices will be negotiable, he says, adding that these devices can also be fitted by tyre maintenance providers under contract.
Additionally, the company offers a payback calculator for commercials, taking account of all tyre issues, including fuel and tyre wear savings, but also roadside breakdown costs.
