Who is Multitune


Multitune GE Ltd is bespoke in the fact it offers project managed installation of garage equipment across the UK.
We are suppliers of equipment products for motorcycle, car, van, coach, truck and trailer, details of which can be found on this website. Originally founded by its current owner Carl Brighty in 1984, who was fed up selling garage equipment for a national company that always put its profits before customer care or service. Carl started in the industry in 1980, and over those years has amassed a wealth of knowledge, he offers that knowledge to customers old and new.
Simple principles are paramount to our business, give good customer service and a fast response when it’s needed.
Always maintain that service; it's imperative that the equipment we supply is up to the task, high in quality, reliable in service, safe to use and fully "CE Approved". Maintaining all those qualities to our customers is never easy, but if you supply the right equipment in the first place you've already made a massive step to ensure your customers loyalty and happiness.
To ensure this quality and service, you will find all of our equipment is manufactured within the UK or Europe; we do not buy, import or get involved with any equipment with Far East or Chinese origin. Quality equipment may appear more expensive at the time of purchase, but as the years go by and the equipment keeps operating safely was that initial saving so important? So next time you need a piece of garage equipment, new workshop development, genuine spare part or just someone to discuss your plans or problems with, we are there to offer our help.

Preparation at an early stage is crucial.

Preparation at an early stage is crucial.

Whats done now can save fortunes at a later date.

Buying a brake tester or Test Lane is always going to be one of the biggest investments in the workshop so choices made now will have an impact on the equipment's longevity in the future.

It’s going in the ground?
Yes, That's where the roller brake tester will be operating from.
Rainwater, snow, condensation or even workshop flooding are always a possibility so the steel support frame will could eventually rot?
To alleviate this issue all VLT equipments that are installed "in-ground" will be supplied with a fully galvanised chassis frame.
Note: This frame can be supplied direct to your builder prior to the equipment being sent to siteWhen installing this frame we
would always recommend installing an outlet storm drain.

Installation of the equipment.

Installation of the equipment.

Installation is carried out by factory trained engineers.

The time will arrive when the equipment has to be fitted.

Obviously this will cause downtime in the workshop, so planning is crucial?                                                         

We will liaise with the client or his builder, the date the equipment will be arriving, any lifting apparatus, any requirements for electrical supplies or isolators.

We will also arrange the date and time our engineers will be on-site to carry out the installation.

Its a known fact that lost time is lost money so we always want the installation to go as smoothly as possible.

All our engineers are fully factory trained in the installation and operation of the equipment, once the equipment is fully installed it will be tested and fully calibrated with necessary certification.

The equipment VLT16733 brake tester

The equipment VLT16733 brake tester

As installed in the UK's VOSA Test Lanes


The UK specification VLT16733 roller brake tester was specifically manufactured in conjunction with DVSA and is currently used in their Test Lanes today.


To meet the demands placed on them by such continual use the machines we supply are manufactured to extremely high standards and have a drive over weight of 20 tonnes, they are designed for the workshop environment in every respect and are exactly the same as the units we install for the DVSA.


The unit is supplied with license to use the DVSA database containing approximately 15,000 vehicles with PASS / FAIL results

During a standard brake test, following the test procedure on the screen, the unit will carry out weighing of each axle and brake force per wheel, foot-brake, handbrake, wheel lock etc. After the test is fully completed the software will display clear PASS/FAIL results with all the results recorded to the screen, in addition this data will be saved to the hard drive.




Printing out of these results is a simple operation, every vehicle which has passed over the rollers for test is recorded and a history of tests are logged and can be accessed at anytime.

Re-tests are simple as the vehicles data will not need to be changed or re-entered.

Designed and built for you


Inspection Pits built for you

Inspection Pits built for you

All our inspection pits are built to the highest standards, including : BS EN 1090-2:2008 + A1:2011 Exc 2 and are CE marked.

For most of us when we see an inspection pit it's already installed in the workshop floor, probably the old style, manufactured of brick or concrete, absolutely filthy, damp and wet with some sort of frame used as steps to get into it. On top of that lead light cables, extension leads and air supply hoses disappear into the pit like strands of spaghetti!!!

An Inspection Pit supplied by Multitune is completely the opposite, usually manufactured in "one-piece" (depending on design & dimensions) from 5mm thick steel having bright white gloss internal walls, walk-in steel staircase, sump for any spillages, compressed air-lines, low voltage power supply and bright LED or low-voltage lighting.

The lighting and high pressure airlines are mounted into a pre-fabricated pressed recess into the wall allowing a clear working area for the technician(s). This simple design eliminates accidental oil and grease spillages from sticking onto the lighting giving the pit a clean bright working environment always.

All our inspection pits will be manufactured and fully marked to the standard :                            BS EN 1090-2:2008 + A1:2011 Exc 2 and CE marked.

We can supply any steel pit to your needs, we are not restricted to the motor-trade only?

Manufactured to order, we have supplied washing pits, cattle watering tubs, chemical dips, cattle crossing tubs etc, etc.

Being suppliers to the motor trade, our biggest industry are pits for that purpose so everyday items include bespoke size servicing pits, MOT Testing Pits for all Classes and the now very popular pits for the HGV ATF Test Lanes (Approved specification for DVSA use).
