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;
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;
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.

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.
The standard pit bay package is ideal both for garages with an existing inspection pit or for new applicants looking to get an operational mot bay with the minimum expenditure possible. Despite being the "entry-level" product within the pit bay range, quality has not been compromised in any way and this package of equipment still benefits from an extended 5 year warranty, FREE project assistance from an allocated specialist, delivery, installation and certification as well as the first years calibration contract.
You can still gain the advantage of a one person testing lane for an inspection pit. This package is an extension of the standard pit bay package with the additional play detection equipment to eliminate the requirement for an assistant.
For the most accurate mot test reporting possible an Automated Test Lane (ATL), with an integrated weighing facility on the roller brake tester coupled with a fully automated brake testing program represents the future of MoT testing as the subject vehicle is examined in the 'as presented' condition.
