Straightset is an independent garage equipment company, offering the ‘full workshop solution’ – from planning and supply, to installation and service of garage equipment and workshop tools.
As a family-run business, with the second generation joining the team, Straightset says it continues to bring its customers quality equipment with aftercare service to match. As an independent company, Straightset carefully selects its manufacturers to bring quality equipment sourced from the EU and US, from brands including Nussbaum, Slift, Werther Int, Shure, HPC, Nederman, Alentec Orion, HPA-Faip, Dura and Bahco – to name a few.
The company says its supplier relationships allow it to supply the full range of workshop requirements, including vehicle lifts, MOT equipment, tyre and wheel equipment, air compressors, exhaust extraction, and workshop furniture, through to a full range of tools and workshop accessories.
According to Straightset, its personal approach has led to long lasting relationships with its customers, built on excellent customer service and a commitment to health & safety. As a dynamic business, Straightset aims to bring customers the latest technology and innovations, and its new-look website was created to do exactly that:
■ Over 15,000 spare parts and workshop tools available to buy
■ Ability to add garage equipment to a ‘quote’ to get a bespoke quotation direct to your inbox
■ Parts finder, which allows you to add the make and model of your equipment and find the associated spare parts
■ Locate your local equipment breakdown support – input your postcode and your local support details are provided
■ Knowledge hub of free industry advice, tips and news
■ Regularly updated second-hand equipment and special offers
With a large warehouse and storage facility, and a fabrication shop on-site at the company’s Nottinghamshire base, there is an opportunity for customers to access quality manufacturers at great prices. The second-hand range includes two-post lifts, four-post lifts, scissor lifts, air compressors, air dryers, tyre and wheel equipment, and workshop accessories.
New partnerships and new products
Straightset has recently partnered with Bahco, to bring the premium supplier’s range of hand tools, power tools, automotive equipment and storage solutions to the UK automotive market. Bahco’s range of cordless tools is brand new to the UK and includes Brushless Impact Wrenches. These powerful yet mobile tools remove the need for air or electric cables, which restrict technicians doing their jobs. The comprehensive range can be bought separately or as complete kits in handy plastic carry cases, and they come in a variety of sizes and power.
