As the busiest MOT Station in the UK, we need equipment that is reliable and efficient. We have been working closely with Boston and by utilising Connected MOT Equipment, we now get more accurate results direct onto the MTS System making it quicker for our testers and customers alike; both critical factors in our business success.

Ian Wills, The Test Centre

We at Sevenoaks District Council have always had a great deal of confidence in Boston Garage Equipment as they have a quality range of products and provide excellent backup and support. So when we went to tender for a new MOT pit and ATL equipment we were delighted to find that Boston were the most competitively priced. The team at Boston went far beyond our expectations on this project, coordinating the construction and installation without fault or delay, the project was completed on schedule to a very high standard. We look forward to a long relationship with Boston. Special thanks to Ross Tabor and his team.

Kenneth Naylor, Sevenoaks District Council

We use Boston Garage equipment at the Test Centre MOT Training in Dartford. We facilitate hundreds of courses a year as well as being a working MOT station. It's fair to say it gets plenty of use. We've found the state of the art equipment to be user friendly, reliable and their technical support is second to none. Candidate feedback is always positive which contributes to a great training experience. Thoroughly recommended!

Des Hall, The Test Centre Training, Dartford

We contacted Boston nine years ago to fit out a new dealership including a Class 4 ATL bay. I was immediately impressed with the professionalism and focus to our project which was just a piece of land at that time. The equipment has performed very well and service has been excellent so there was no question of looking elsewhere when we needed a similar outlet in Medway two years ago. This involved temporary workshops until the new site had gone through a complete refurbishment. With their characteristic dedication the entire project was delivered on time and on budget.

Keith Stoner, Tunbridge Wells Hyundai

From initial contact to final sign off, Boston have been approachable, supportive, helpful and professional at every stage. We can tell the equipment has been designed specifically for testers to help make the job 'flow', and our testers chose this equipment over the other equipment we have. The installation went exactly to plan and the equipment has worked faultlessly from the day it was installed - which makes you think it will continue to work for years to come.

Jim Parker, Boleyn Recovery and Fleet Services

We have been extremely impressed with the package offered by Boston. Their attention to detail and customer satisfaction made my job easy especially when you consider I am not a trained technician. I cannot thank Ross Tabor and his team highly enough for their support over the two and a half years it took to find funding for this project. Boston gets the ‘thumbs up’ from me and I would gladly recommend them to anyone considering setting up an MOT station.
