Although the business was relocated to a temporary site nearby during refurbishment, it was a priority following the fire to rebuild, refurbish and reinstall the St Mary’s Way dealership in order to give customers greater continuity of service. As soon as the building’s redevelopment was under way, garage equipment installation commenced in the service department to meet the client’s reopening timescales, managed throughout by CCS’ dedicated garage equipment installation project manager.

Our garage equipment installation for Renault Stockport included:

  • An additional 2 service bays and vehicle lifts, taking the client’s total bays to 12
  • 1 dual-revenue Class 7 ATL MOT bay
  • Wheel alignment bay
  • Fume extraction system
  • Compressed air & lubrication systems
  • Tyre changing equipment

Having worked with Lookers for many years, CCS enjoys an excellent relationship with the client team which enabled us to quickly understand how the workshop will operate, its preferred equipment, and to advise as to additional opportunities such as increased service bay facilities. Prior to commissioning, full training was delivered by CCS in the safe operation and regular inspection of garage equipment and vehicle lifts.
