Do you guys think about the future of automotive business?

Recommended Posts

Saw a Tesla the other day at the mall with it completely stripped down.

Has tires with tie rods connected to the steering column and a self contained motor at the rear.


No oil, no spark plugs, no moving components.... everything electronic.... NOTHING to replace but tires and possibly brakes every 100,000 miles.


Is this the future? How long, in 20 years? 15 years? I'm 30 and I think I will be good by the time I retire but a completely different story for the next generation. Gotta think too, as we start transitioning over, there will be less and less work for the numerous number of automotive shops out there. Just in my shopping center alone, there are 5 major shops and 1 more across the street. In our 5 mile radius, there has got to be more than 20

      Champtires – one of the leading e-commerce used tire sellers – is not facing supply chain issues. In fact, over the past several months, Champtires’ inventory has grown exponentially.
      “Luckily, we are still able to source really great tires right now,” said Brad Rea, president and founder of Champtires. “Ninety percent of our inventory has 7/32 tread or above, and we’re adding hundreds of Michelins, Pirellis, Continentals – tires in every brand really – every day.”
      Reselling used tires with significant tread life left saves them from ending up in a landfill. And it allows consumers and auto businesses to save drastically compared to new tire prices.
      “Relying on premium used tires is a responsible way to use recycled products while saving yourself a lot of money,” Rea said.
      High quality used tires are perfect if you need to match one or two to a remaining set or when replacing all four tires. Every tire that enters a Champtires facility goes through a thorough three-step inspection process. Free FedEx shipping is included on all website orders to the continental U.S.

      Hello all,
      We used to get paid for used motor oil (pre-COVID19). However, lately we are being charged for pick up and transport. We go through approximately 500-700 gallons per month. 
      Do you guys currently get paid or are paying for used motor oil and oil filter pick up? Our shop is located in Texas.

      This tip actually comes from a fellow Elite Business Coach; The Tire Rotation is the New Oil Change Service! 
      I agree!  With extended oil changes and people waiting until the oil change maintenance light to tell them when they need an oil change, rather than your Windshield Oil Sticker, shops need a way to get people back into the bays.  Also, let's face it, the average consumer DOES NOT change their oil as often as they should. 
      One of the best ways to get your customer to return to you is to schedule a tire rotation every six months. Wrap the tire rotation around a vehicle multipoint inspection and you now have a new powerful sales strategy and customer retention plan.

      Whether you only occasionally buy tires for your business or find yourself constantly needing to replace one, two or an entire set, there is a way to start saving money immediately.
      Champtires has 30,000+ tires in stock at any given time - in nearly every brand, size and tread depth - at the lowest prices. Free shipping to the continental U.S. is included on every order. Auto businesses can join an exclusive program to save even more.
      Why Buy Used Tires?
      While Champtires does sell new tires, high quality used tires are our specialty. Buying used tires is:
      Safe. When bought from a reputable tire shop, like Champtires. We’ve been in business since 2009, and every tire that enters our warehouse is inspected and air tested. Environmentally friendly. Instead of the used tires ending up in a landfill, you will be reusing a premium, recycled product. Much more affordable. Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically and has caused the price of new tires to skyrocket.  Why Trust Champtires?
      Since 2009, Champtires has specialized in selling new and high-quality used tires to drivers across the U.S. Every tire that enters our warehouse is inspected and tested, and we offer a 14-day satisfaction guarantee.
