AutoDrain is a business that came from the dismantling sector and, as they quite rightly claim, do have an in-built understanding of this industry. They are also a company that recognises that we are all different and so, they have developed into a business that will not only help and advise you on say, a mobile budget fuel tank, but will also supply a full planning and design service for the latest, ground up installation in one of the leading yards.
Due to AutoDrain’s philosophy, it isn’t as easy to put them into standard depollution setups. They understand that many business start ups for example, haven’t got a lot of money to spend, or perhaps aren’t processing many vehicles, and for those in that position, they offer Depollution Starter Pack designed to get you started on depollution.
The starter pack covers everything you need to get you going and comply with current legislation, but as time goes by, they recognise that the growing and changing business will need greater handling requirements.
So rather than create rigid setups, they prefer to offer an extensive range of products, with a variety of capacities and outputs, so that they can tailor a particular product to a articular need. And this tailored service, as we previously mentioned applies as much to a simple expansion to improve throughput, as it does to the design and installation of a multi-bay operation.
If you visit their website, you won’t read much about lifts and frames. They do supply scissor lifts but will recommend and supply equipment that suits your particular operation,or work within existing facilities.
The range is comprehensive. For example, their QuickDrain system for recovering fluids comes in a number guises, including the standard model, a tower version, a compact version plus various other combinations. This allows the use of AutoDrain’s system in a variety of locations where it may be a little tight or unsuitable to install the standard unit.
They do many items that you don’t find elsewhere like their fuel cube for example. The unit is fully compliant with the requirements of the HSE, EA, Fire Brigade, Trading Standards and insurance companies, but gives you a handy dispensing hose for the easy re-use of diesel.
They also supply all the ancillary equipment the dismantler needs including a variety of mobile tanks, fuel cleaners and scavengers, air bag tools, their nifty purpose designed AutoShear for cat removal, air con gas removal, and also, air con gas disposal. Then there is a budget shocker system, an oil filter crusher and the wheel popper.
AutoDrain believes in personal service and it doesn’t make any difference whether you have a multibay design and installation project or you’re just after a workshop fuel scavenger.
So if you like the idea of either having a system designed to suit you or want to just build your facility as the business grows, then it might be worth taking advantage of AutoDrain’s free site visit they offer.
