Workshop Solutions Why MOT & ATL installation

With a seismic shift in the traditional MOT season and a legacy left by Covid-19 and lockdown, there are going to be significant changes that will effect a vehicles MOT. Statistics say that over the coming months/years there will be a shift in buying behaviour meaning:

8.5 years The average age of a car on the road will increase to 8.5

200% demand increase in MOTs from Sep-Nov

Less cars from 0 to 3 years on the road

Therefore more cars will require MOTs

Installation – How we help you through the installation It takes an average of 6 – 8 weeks to get a MOT bay installed, and this also includes any upgrades to an ATL. At LKQ Euro Car Parts we offer the full service, from start to finish to get you up and running. We work closely with you, supplier and the DVSA to make sure everything runs smoothly and to a set timeframe. Now could be the time for you to consider expansion into MOTs or perhaps get an additional MOT/ATL lane installed to cope with added work that is predicted now and in the future.
