Here comes the SUN: Snap-on offer set to support MOT sector as extension ends

Published:  10 July, 2020

 Snap-on are offering MOT testing stations the opportunity to sidestep a looming calibration crisis and fast-track themselves back to full readiness when the MOT extension ends via a fully calibrated SUN DGA5000 emissions analyser.

The company says the equipment can be up and running within days of orders being received, and that those who take up the offer will pay nothing for 90 days. When payment is due, it will be interest-free, with a range of payment options available.

On Friday 31 July, the MOT extension is ending, and from Saturday 1 August, the number of motorists seeking MOT tests is expected to rise significantly. Some stations may need to have equipment, such as emissions analysers, calibrated before the full resumption of normal testing. However, with just three weeks to go, some testing stations may struggle for a slot. 

In a Special Notice issued this week, DVSA acknowledged that MOT testing stations may currently find it difficult to get equipment calibrated. However, was also pointed out that those business unable to prove their equipment has been calibrated and is functioning normally and correctly would not be allowed to resume testing.

Commenting on Snap-on’s offer, UK General Manager Mark Ost said: “We can provide you with our industry-leading SUN DGA5000 emissions analyser.You pay nothing for 90 days, ensuring you can generate some much-needed revenue without the worry of having to make a large lump sum payment straight away.

“With over 500,000 consumers choosing to defer their MOT tests, we know this has been a very challenging time for the whole garage industry.

“The positive news is that industry experts expect that the volume of MOT tests to be carried out from August to early 2021 will be over 2.5 times the usual activity, which will hopefully result in tremendous revenue opportunities.”

Mark added “We know that the demand for the SUN DGA5000 will be high and so in order to meet our customers’ needs, we have been working hard to build up a stock of available product. Place your order now to ensure you get one of these units before supplies are gone.”
