Bespoke workshop service pit installation for TIP's Liverpool depot by CCS Garage Equipment

Having refurbished TIP's Nuneaton workshop previously, installing state-of-the-art garage equipment including new service pits and ancillary kit, CCS Garage Equipment was recently engaged by TIP again to install a new 12m service pit and pit jack at the company's Liverpool premises in Simonswood, accompanied by associated groundworks and hardwearing epoxy resin paint finish.

The 10-bay workshop, plus a fleet of on-the-road engineer vehicles, undertakes semi-trailer maintenance and repair work including MOT preparation and roller brake testing, operating as an ATF for the testing of trailers and HGVs. Our new pit was to occupy a previous bay area, allowing workshop engineers and mechanics to work more efficiently under vehicles at the same time as working above, creating great flexibility in the way the team works.

The new service pit at the Liverpool depot was built to our client's bespoke specification before being installed in the Simonswood facilities, together with new Autolift pit jack. Both products are made in Britain by trusted suppliers, delivering a robust and hardwearing service pit system for TIP Liverpool.

The pit jack features a fast air pump to aid workshop efficiency and ease of operation, along with safety lowering valves, anti-burst valves and ram lock-off handles for additional safety reassurance.

Using service pits in commercial vehicle workshops

Why choose to install a service pit? Commercial service and inspection pits constructed on a bespoke basis from strong steel offer excellent opportunities to enhance working areas in workshops, creating safe, practical and well-lit spaces that last for years. Our pit specification for TIP Liverpool included a steel staircase with handrail and bright lighting spanning the length of the inspection pit to aid visibility during usual workshop operations.

✔ Set up and remove vehicles quickly for faster servicing and maintenance
✔ Built-in brake testing units can be specified for your build
✔ Easy access to tooling and workshop equipment
✔ Work under and above vehicles simultaneously
✔ Cheap running costs once installed
✔ Great option for buildings with lower ceiling heights

TIP Liverpool's new pit is now fully installed, and the working area finished to a safe and compliant standard using non-slip epoxy resin floor paint.
