PMM takes a look at the services on offer from workshop design specialist, Straightset.
Straightset is an independent garage equipment expert that, for the past 30 years, has provided design, supply, installation and service of garage equipment for car and commercial workshops.
The company says it prides itself on customer service, believing in only supplying equipment that can be fully supported. As Straightset is not owned by a manufacturer, it is uniquely positioned to offer carefully selected suppliers who share the same ethos, therefore allowing the business to offer aftercare packages that are claimed to be second to none.
With a knowledgeable salesforce and in-house design teams, Straightset is able to guide customers through the choices and provide bespoke customisation in line with their workshop requirements and budget. The company offers the full workshop equipment package, including vehicle lifts, MOT equipment, wheel equipment, brake testers, work benches, lubrication, compressed air systems, workshop tools, spare parts and more.
Here’s a little taste of what’s on offer:
With a wide range of lifts available from suppliers, the company is able to source car and commercial vehicle lifts to meet most specifications, including in-ground lifts from Slift, MAHA, J A B Becker, Nussbaum, and Pitlift, as well as above-ground lifts from Nussbaum, OMA and Slift.

Choosing and installing an integrated workstation solution not only provides a professional, co-ordinated look to a workshop, but also allows technicians to have easy and efficient access to tools and equipment when and where they are needed. Straightset is the UK agent for SHURE, the class-leading benching system from the U.S, known for its durability and strength.
The company also offers a wide range of MOT equipment to suit any size of workshop and budget, including Beissbarth, a brand of the Bosch group. The MOT offering includes manufacturer- approved, reliable, tried and tested brake testers, with extensive warranties, easily sourced spare parts, and a national network of trained support.
Just as important as the equipment that is installed in a workshop is the effective maintenance of that equipment, to keep garages productive, says Straightset.
The Straightset service team are specialists in the maintenance, calibration and repair of garage equipment and offer thorough preventative maintenance packages. The team of GEA accredited Service Engineers are strategically located throughout the UK mainland and are all specially trained to have the necessary skills and parts to achieve high levels of first time fixes.
The dedicated and knowledgeable service controllers are on hand to provide a personal approach. They work with effective management software to provide relevant, up-to-date reporting of your service history and call outs, as well as competitive fixed rates, flexible contracts and reduced breakdown rates for contract customers.
