Diversify your garage’s vehicle lifting capabilities with portable lifting!

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.

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?

Case Study: Costco Stevenage

Need a new site kitting out with the latest premium garage equipment? No problem - Hofmann Megaplan have you covered. The most recent install from our expert engineers was the complete fit out of new tyre shop for major brand Costco's latest opening in Stevenage.

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!

Case Study: Ariel Manufacturing

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!
