I hope everyone had a great month. April seemed to be off for a lot of shops, so if yours was one of them I hope it turned around for you.

I had a great month!  My guys turned in an all time record month. They beat the snot out of the previous record by $15K, and had a higher GP doing it. Car count is up, ARO is up, and I spent most of the month at the lake working on my boat while my guys took care of business.

Tomorrow is one of my favorite times. I get to go in and write some serious commission checks. I'll probably flip everyone a Benjamin while I'm at it.

Life is good.

      Hi all - first time poster here. I’m opening a quick repair / tune up shop in California soon so Im trying to get an idea of what the financials will look like. If I offer the below services when I open, what Product Sales percentages would be reasonable to expect? For example, is assuming ~30% of sales coming from Oil Changes too high? Too low? 
       
      Service Sales % Oil & Filter Change   Transmission Fluid Flush   Cooling System Flush   Brake Fluid Flush   Engine Air Filter Replacement   Cabin Air Filter Replacement   Wiper Blade Replacement   Spark Plug Replacement   Pre-purchase Car Inspection   Car is not starting (inspection)   Check Engine Light is on (inspection) Thank you for any feedback!
      best, 
      Carter

      Many of us were once techs, but now hold the management role within our facilities - and as much as we'd love to say we're as technically proficient as we once were, the reality is technology is changing SO quickly that it's tough at times to stay on top of it! 
      Scan tools are being released at a dizzying pace, and the features required aren't what they were 5 years ago!
      In this episode of the ASOG Podcast, David and I talk with Brandon Dills of Jarhead Diagnostics about just that! 
      Brandon shares his scan tool choices and what tool, if he could choose only one, that he would purchase!
      We also talk some techncian perspective and there's even some dealer perspective in there! 
      Make sure you listen to the whole things, as there's some killer information mixed in 😉

      We are in desperate need of techs. I tried Indeed and was very dissatisfied with the "talent" they sent us. I am considering Find A Wrench they post on Indeed as well as Zip Recruiter and some 90 other companies as well as social media. Has anyone tried them or ACT Auto Staffing?

      This wasn't supposed to be an episode...

      David was simply asked to edit the audio of a conversation between Lucas Underwood and Dutch Silverstein of A&M Auto Service in Pineville, NC.

      However, the conversation was so impactful, David decided to release it as a full episode.

      Enjoy!
