Inspection Pit MoT Bay Packages


If your premises has limited headroom, then all is not lost as you can still operate a modern MoT station using an inspection pit arrangement. We supply packages that allow you to achieve class 4 or class 7 mot pit testing for all types of MoT bay up to and including fully automated test lanes (ATL).

GETECH specialise in the delivery of pit based mot installations and to demonstate our equipment in this environment we have created a special playlist on our YouTube channel which showcases our mot equipment for pit installations.

Pit based installations also offer some advantages over lift based installations namely;

  • You can open additional markets e.g. Limousines
  • Running costs - Once installed a pit can last forever, whereas lifts require regular maintenance and inspection. Lifts also do have a finite life.

After deciding on a pit based mot bay for either dimensional or personal reasons a major consideration needs to be the method of construction for the pit itself. Essentially there are two options;

  • Build a pit in blockwork ensuring it it watertight and dimensionally accurate or;
  • Use a fabricated pit

The method you select will be based on a number of factors most importantly the height of the water table in the area, but there are many other factors to consider.If required GETECH can supply a fabricated pit manufactured to a bespoke design for your particular installation requirements.

Fabricated Inspection Pits

If you are opting to install an MoT bay by using an inspection pit then a fabricated solution is an essential consideration. Any concerns over water penetration can be immediately forgotten and the pit itself can be supplied with lighting, power, air, oil or indeed any other desired service prior to installation.
