People the Most Important Asset in MOT Design & Installation

Hofmann Megaplan has been looking beyond just the equipment their specialist MOT division provides to focus on what they believe is key to any install; people and the skills they possess which make them amongst the most approachable and knowledgeable in the industry. 

Whilst the automotive testing equipment fitted within the workshop is a vital part of any MOT Bay, from headlamp testers, brake testers and lifts right through to all the necessary ancillaries needed to create a professional vehicle testing setup, it is the people that bring these elements together. They are the pivotal part of any installation.

Hofmann Megaplan has long been proud of its people. They are the component which make each installation so satisfying. Having individuals that make up a team with years' worth of successful installations behind them ensures every MOT Bay is installed with the long term business objectives of the customer in mind. 

Why do people matter?


Supplying and installing MOT equipment can be a complex process, with no two projects the same. With many different factors to consider including the fringe services, tradesmen involved and the scope for unforeseen issues, it can all be quite messy.

Hofmann Megaplan prides itself on having the right people for the job leading these projects. Their service means that as a business owner or manager, you do not end up wasting your time micro managing the installation. Our engineers do as much as is needed to ensure everything is completed correctly and smoothly. The experience they have brings money can't buy value to your MOT installation that can also save you in the long run.

People First, Even After Installation

This human approach carries on post installation as well. By running various comprehensive training courses, every customer is able to ensure they get the most out of their investment. The flexibility to complete training on its own or as part of an install is another great example of putting people first in MOT design, installation and beyond.

Whether its full supply and installation of complete MOT Bays, provision and install of individual equipment, a complete 'hand holding' service and project management or ongoing calibrations, maintenance contracts and aftersales support, Hofmann Megaplan have the people to complete this work with the human touch needed to help your business succeed. Call them today on 01480 8-9-10-11.
