With one of the best equipped Engineering workshops in the UK, Epsom Coaches facilities have received yet another boost with the installation of a state of the art “Skylift” designed to improve access for inspection and repair of its 145 strong fleet.

Designed and built by Stertil Koni, who supply all the vehicle lifting equipment for the Company, the new sky lift, considerably speeds up the lifting of vehicles and can cater for up to 25 tonnes.

Gareth Stanton, Engineering Manger commented “the Skylift is a really fantastic piece of equipment, giving all the advantages of inspection pits with none of the disadvantages. Our Engineers really appreciate the quick turnaround the equipment provides and with the excellent LED lighting installed, they are seeing everything in a new light!”.

In addition to the Skylift, Epsom are installing a new computerised brake tester, along with laser wheel alignment and electronic headlight aim equipment. All part of an £80,000 investment in new engineering hardware.
