The Parts Alliance has launched the autumn 2017 edition of Garage Essentials, with the 76 page glossy brochure featuring garage equipment and tooling from the biggest and best suppliers to the UK automotive aftermarket.
Dunlop ‘Star Buy’ packages include a 4 tonne two post lift for under £2,000 and a tyre bay package that offers a saving of £400 and is exclusive to The Parts Alliance.
Tyre equipment has proved particularly successful during a buoyant 2017, so there’s an increased range of options this issue, with solutions from Tecalemit, Bosch and Hofman. The all new EAE package combines a high spec automated tyre changer with assist arm and wheel balancer, for just £2,195 + VAT.
EAE has also launched a new range of OPTL / ATL four post lifts – again exclusive to The Parts Alliance – that can be surface or recess mounted. The three options have platforms ranging from 4.8m to 5.7m, costing between £7,995 and £8,795 + VAT. Better still, these lifts have inbuilt rear slip plates for four wheel alignment.
“We can supply and fit these DVSA approved lifts with a project design at a price point that just hasn’t been available to independent garages until now,” said John Wright, Head of Garage Equipment and Customer Development. “As customers can upgrade their two man MOT test bays to ATL for a lot less with us, we’re anticipating lots of interest, particularly as the wheel alignment capability adds further revenue potential.”
Cover offers feature SIP’s 500 kg heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder transmission jack which is selling fast at just £99.95 + VAT whilst stocks last. Angry Jester’s new Smoke Pro Turbo diagnostic leak detector boasts 10 litre per minute flow rate, quick coupling and 5 minute working cycle, for under £500 + VAT.
Angry Jester showcase their increased range on pages 50 to 53 whilst the Z M Heaters range of multi-oil and portable space heaters return ready for winter too.
Last but not least, Our Virtual Academy debut their online training solution. The manufacturer-level technical library includes interactive video content, proven to boost knowledge retention.
It’s available for the first time on a simple pay-as-you-go monthly subscription for up to four technicians, delivering a flexible on-demand solution for updating or refreshing vital technical expertise.
