Waste water specialist Onsite Central has improved its maintenance and repair efficiency with the purchase of brand new lifting equipment from Stertil Koni. A set of wireless mobile vehicle lifts has enabled Onsite to bring more repairs in-house, as well as improving health and safety within the workshop.

With six offices across the UK, Onsite runs a specialist fleet of HGV vehicles and tankers to provide its range of services, including sewer cleansing, portable dams, CCTV surveys and pipeline installation. In the past, repairs to vehicles were sub-contracted, which had implications both in terms of cost and quality. The company was keen to be able to do more in-house and decided to investigate lifting equipment.

Stertil Koni’s battery-powered mobile column vehicle lifts allow work bays to be moved around as necessary and provide maximum flexibility within the workshop or outside (with no mains power supply required, the system can also be used externally). As well as flexibility in where to use them, the lifts’ wireless set-up avoids cables running over the floor of the workshop, improving health and safety and giving unrestricted access to the underside of vehicles.

Onsite purchased six 7.25 tonne wireless mobile column lifts and four tall support stands, each with a capacity of 11.5 tonnes. The versatility of the lifts means Onsite can now carry out its own vehicle inspections, servicing and repairs.

“Quality is paramount with lifting equipment and the quality of Stertil Koni’s products really stood out when we were looking around,” comments Ray Ryder of Onsite Central. “I was particularly impressed by the wireless operation, which has removed the trip hazard from our workshop floor.” And with the new lifts now installed and in use, he remains enthusiastic: “Previously we had to sub-contract most vehicle repairs, which was costly and meant it wasn’t always easy to control the quality. With the new lifts, most repairs can now be done in-house, which is much more cost-effective and results in less downtime for us.”
