Looking to either upgrade your existing MOT bay or starting an MOT project from first principles? GETECH can help you weigh up the pro’s and con’s of the many bay offerings provided by manufacturers and suppliers across the UK.
The first thing to get to grips with is the type of MOT bay you are going to install… Sure – you want the all singing and dancing ATL (Automated Test Lane) – you’ve been told this is the future of MOT testing by a number of agents and you’ve been convinced.
But why pay for an all singing all dancing MOT bay when what you want is a good price and one man to operate your MOT bay… Why not opt for One Person Testing instead?
One person testing was previously only available to existing MOT stations and it allowed them to go to One Person Testing without all the expense of upgrading the entire MOT bay. Happily new applicants now also have this opportunity hence the future of MOT testing is actually One Person Testing rather than Automated Testing.
The only difference between OPT & ATL is the roller brake tester which for Automated Testing has an integrated weighing set to allow “as presented” vehicle weights to be used in the brake efficiency calculation – but in opting to One Person Testing you can eliminate the costs of a complete weighing set, download PC and a whole host of other items within the bay meaning that you could save £3,500 nett on the initial purchase.
So do yourself a favour and OPT for One Person Testing rather Automated Testing with a GETECH MOT Bay – You will already have saved £4200 just by placing your business with us!
