Trailer-Lift enables on-site servicing and repairs to vehicles

Trailer-Lift looks like a traditional vehicle trailer but incorporates a specially adapted scissor lift which means that servicing and repairing vehicles can be carried out from the customers office or home.

This is seen as a new income stream and puts no limits on revenue generated by their service departments. It seems that car owners and dealers and prefer this option which avoids disrupting their busy lives and Service Managers save money on courtesy cars as well as boosting profits from increased business. And of course Trailer-Lift provides car fleet managers with that extra facility to help keep their vehicles on the road delivering winning results for their customers.

Trailer-Lift managing director, Tim McCullagh, says that “this is becoming a very popular trend with car dealerships and general car maintenance companies around the globe. The product was initially invented to maintain rally cars at events as there are no garage facilities or electricity supply. However, we are experiencing amazing interest from countries all over the world for a multitude of uses.

The trailer can transport vehicles and lift them in the air for inspection, repairs or display. The hydraulic lift is powered by a self-contained 24v battery which can be charged from the towing vehicle; therefore no external power supply is required.

Trailer-Lift has just won the prestigious Global Media Award at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas for innovation and market potential. It has already been well received in the UK market and is being used by Europe’s largest vehicle recovery company the AA (Automobile Association). Major motor sport teams, Jaguar Cars, Subaru, UK government agencies, and premium car dealerships are all accredited users of the product.
