Hofmann Megaplan Blog
Considered one of the biggest investments to be made by a garage owner, vehicle lifting is a serious purchase. The amount of options available can cause a bit of a headache when it comes to deciding on the right specifications, and what is important for your garage.
The obvious choice would be to head straight for the reliable two post and four post lifting solutions, especially when it comes to MOT and wheel alignment services.
However, for smaller garages or agile workshops with different stations something else is needed. Clearly the non-manoeuvrable lifts won't make the cut - enter the portable solution.
Innovation & Quality from Cartar
Brand new for 2019 and now available across the UK, Hofmann Megaplan can exclusively offer the CartarGlidemaster mobile lift for all tyre fitters, garages and bodyshops.
Renowned for its quality, this highly manoeuvrable piece of engineering offers a quick solution, that allows the car to be moved even whilst it is elevated.
How many lifts can you say are capable of this?
Low Garage Footprint? No issue.
We understand that not every garage can cater for a big two post or four post lift – if we didn't, then we wouldn't supply such a varied range.
Our host of tyre service and scissor lifts, along with a full range of Cascos Lifts, offers the ability to choose the right model/ size/ specification/ budget-friendly option for your business.

Installation without the hassle!
High quality service of premium tyre fitting equipment is vital for big brand tyre shops as volume is high and machines need to be reliable.
Our specialist machines and install engineers were an obvious choice.
Megaspin 820 Wheel Balancer
The megaspin 820P Wheel Balancer takes balancing to a whole new level - the One Weight Balance technology enables just one weight to completely balance a wheel.
The incredible ability to provide live recommended actions makes interacting with the machine easy for fitters. A colour TFT display & further user prompts provide a greater visual representation, increasing efficiency for swift balancing.
Our team successfully installed three of these incredible machines to accompany...
Twister Evolution Tyre Changer
The new branch also had three Twister Evo Tyre Changing machines to compliment these advanced balancers.
Designed based on feedback from tyre fitters, the Twister Evo depicts strength, reliability and ease of use; which suits Costco down to a tee for their ongoing services.
Lifting Costco in Stevenage!
Not only were the tyre-fitting machines installed efficiently, but we also supplied and installed two brand new 3.2 Tonne Two Post Lifts and one 4.0 Tonne Two Post Lift. Between these machines all lifting needs for the branch are covered!
By making great use of the available space, providing excellent solutions for the footprint of the garage and considering the operation requirements, our team took full advantage of offering high specification solutions for high volume requirements!
We love returning to our customers year after year to help maintain and service their equipment. We believe it helps reinforces a great relationship between supplier and consumer. Our latest lift service at Ariel Motors in Somerset demonstrates this concept in action!
Ariel Motors, famously known for the modern classic Atom model, are a British car manufacturer that pride themselves on exceptional quality. Tucked away in Somerset, they have help prestige in British motoring by only allowing a single technician to work on a vehicle from start to finish, there by offering a personable service. In their own words it's "just good old fashioned, British skill and handbuilt craftsmanship".
To follow up the Atom range of cars, Ariel started the production of their motorcycle range, the Ace. At the time of starting production they needed several lifts to cope with the demand for this new range. Hofmann Megaplan was a dream match and we were over the moon to work with such a British institution.
Four years on, our engineers have completed the fourth annual lift service of 3 MCL750 Cascos motorcycle lifts. Having originally purchased these durable lifts to for production back in March of 2015, they continue to provide excellent efficiency without a hitch!
At Hofmann Megaplan, we make sure our lift servicing and lift maintenance is just as good as the products we supply - if we didn't, our customers would not continue to use our excellent after sales service!Do you need to upgrade your vehicle lifting capabilities?

As always our engineers have been busy up and down the country fitting a variety of garage equipment.
Last week we completed an install for Elite Direct Tyres in Rainham. From their state of the art showroom and garage in the east of London they offer everything from tyre fitting and wheel alignment to car servicing and MOTs.
The company boasts 67,000 square feet of warehousing space alongside its 20,000 square feet retail store, which they keep fully-stocked with the latest alloy wheels and tyres alongside many other ancillary products. They even have a cafe in their waiting area!
Self confessed experts in all things automotive, they say on their website "we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of tyres, alloy wheels, brakes, suspension systems, exhausts – the list is endless."
With sales complete onsite, over the phone and through their Point S powered website, this is a busy workshop with a requirement for the best equipment.
Enter Hofmann Megaplan. Two of our expert engineers spent a day onsite fitting a host of the best premium garage equipment money can buy. This included two brand new service lifts to expand the working area of the garage.

Hofmann Megaplan would like to thank Elite Direct Tyres for its custom and for choosing our machines to feature in their incredible garage set up!
Hofmann Megaplan is consistently working hard to ensure the customer service we offer exceeds the expectations of those purchasing our machines. A big part of this is training, and who better to train our team than the individuals manufacturing the product?
To that end, 5 of our engineers are currently over in Vitoria, Northern Spain, where lifting professionals Cascos Maquinaria (Machinery) are based.
Still operated by the Cascos family, the same passion and pride goes into every lift they manufacture, from scissor lifts to 4 post ATL/MOT Servicing lifts. It is the way that the company has operated since it was established in 1965.
As chosen UK distributors of Cascos Lifts, Hofmann Megaplan takes its responsibility very seriously in ensuring this incredible product is handled correctly after making its journey to the UK.
This is the very reason our team receive their installation and maintenance training onsite, in Spain, where the lifting equipment is manufactured.
We believe this is the best way to ensure our engineers know the products inside out. It also gives them a deeper understanding of the aforementioned passion and pride that the business was established upon and that goes into every lift.
