School Bus Inspection, Repair and Service Facility in the USA

J&J Miles, a Freeport New York-based commercial truck and school bus inspection, repair and service facility – as well as extensive tire centre – knows a thing or two about how to run a successful operation, particularly after more than nine decades in business.

Company President, John ('JP') Miles, observed one major factor that tops the list:

“We must deliver exceptional customer service efficiently and quickly – every time.”

That’s why JP opted to outfit his shop with the very latest in heavy duty mobile column lifting technology from Stertil-Koni, featuring the ebright Smart Control System.

Even Better, They Use Wireless Technology!

JP explains:

“The Stertil-Koni mobile column lifts are rugged, dependable and, we can move them around the facility to wherever they are needed. When we’re really busy, we use them outside and can even wash vehicles on them. Even better, they use wireless technology, which makes life a lot easier, safer and quicker for our techs and faster in terms of vehicle servicing.”

And speed is always a priority. J&J Miles, now with a staff of 15 technicians, has grown from a commercial tire provider and truck repair shop to inspecting and servicing school buses. In recent developments, the company has become an official U.S. Department of Transportation inspection facility for “yellow dots” (school buses). With that kind of expertise, it’s not unusual to see 15-20 vehicles ready for servicing on any given day.

Enter the benefits of new technology.

JP said:

“The newest thing about the Stertil-Koni mobile column lifts is the ebright Smart Control System. It’s brought lifting into the next century.”

Dr. Jean DellAmore, Stertil-Koni President, added:

“This innovation features a full-colour, seven-inch, touch-screen control console, much like the latest tablet computers. In that way, we are able to put all lifting controls directly at the fingertips of the person who needs the information most – the busy tech on shop floor.”

JP concludes:

“We started out with another company’s mobile column lifts, but frankly they weren’t wireless. And, they were heavier. So, the shift to Stertil-Koni lifts gives us a much more mobile lifting option, with a wireless platform, that is truly trouble-free. On top of that, we now have the latest control system, giving us the very best in heavy duty lifting technology.”

The ebright Smart Control System in use at J&J Miles also features:

  • Owner/user configurable options, including choice of language and personalised ID key to protect against unauthorised use;
  • Presentation of all relevant information at a glance; and
  • The ability to connect up to 32 mobile columns fully synchronised in a single set.
