Tyre Shop Equipment

JBS Equipment Limited have teamed up with JAMES BOON TECHNOLOGIES to introduce a new range of tyre changers and wheel balancers.

Available from April, the units are all UK assembled from European manufactured components and factory tested prior to delivery.

Not only pre tested but delivered, installed, onsite training and a two year warranty, all fully supported nationwide, carried out by the Hofmann Megaplan team!

The JBT Automatic Tyre Changer, supplied with the assist arm will handle all steel and alloy rims, including run flats, up to 24″ diameter! The JBT balancer compliments the changer.

James Boon, said ” We are to provide a very competitively priced range of tyre shop equipment to our valued distributor, JBS Equipment, who have supported us at Hofmann Megaplan since we opened for business in 2004. This range of equipment uses the latest European components and is is fulled warranty and after sales supported”.

Greenwich Council

The Royal Borough of Greenwich Council recently selected JBS Equipment Ltd as their chosen supply for updating the vehicle test bays in the GS PLUS Ltd’s Thamesmead workshops.

They operate a fleet of over 300 vehicles, private car, vans , mini buses, school buses, multi axle dust carts and coaches.

To cover all aspects of the fleet we initially supplied and installed a Class IV & VII ATL Facility from the Liftmaster range of garage equipment. Supplied with a 6 metre platformed four post lift this MOT bay handles all their cars, vans, minibuses and LGV vehicles. Now fully operational, they are also open to the public and local businesses, offering full MOT facilites.

Once this the ATL bay was fully operational, JBS Equipment Ltd, along with Liftmaster Ltd, started the installation of a V.O.S.A  A.T.F. Truck and Bus Test Facility.

The fleet engineer, Mr Grant Williams decided that whilst they had the full Class IV & VII bay, it would be an opportunity missed if they did not include the ability to test Class IV & VII vehicles on the A.T.F. lane. This means during free periods, if the Class IV and VII lane is in use, instead of waiting in line, the vehicles can be tested in the ATF Bay.

Due to open mid March 2014, the ATF bay will handle primarily coaches, trucks and  trailers, not only from their own fleet but vehicles from local hauliers, transport and warehousing companies, local coach and bus operators.

The facility will not only offer GS Plus considerable time savings, driver/fitter salarys, fuel costs, toll fees and wear and tear on the vehicles but also will contribute heavily to saving on carbon gases emissions. Something that Greenwich Council passionately support.

If you need a test on any vehicle from a mini to a 44 tonne truck, contact them direct.

Please note that MOTs are by appointment only. To book your vehicle in for an MOT, please ring service reception on 020 8921 4561 or for further information email:
