Tire rotations & brake checks


Recommended Posts

Right now, we charge $15 for a rotation. Techs visually look at the pads while rotating. We're in process of getting a 'brake inspection' put together and I imagine we'll charge around $50 for the inspection. The inspection will not include any diagnosing, strictly measuring pads and rotors, testing brake fluid, and overall brake system visual inspection.

Tire rotations are $19.95
On trucks with large tires and aftermarket rims, $37.95

We don’t charge anything for a brake inspection. I find when customers bring their vehicles in for a brake inspection, 99% of the time they get the repair done.

$30.00 to $36.00 depending on with or without TPMS. If vehicle has TPMS but does not require interaction post rotation then $30.00. If vehicle has TPMS and requires TPMS scan tool, on board reset procedure or road test then $36.00.

Brake inspection is $40.00 and fee is waived if vehicle needs brakes and we do the work that same day.

      It always amazes me when I hear about a technician who quits one repair shop to go work at another shop for less money. I know you have heard of this too, and you’ve probably asked yourself, “Can this be true? And Why?” The answer rests within the culture of the company. More specifically, the boss, manager, or a toxic work environment literally pushed the technician out the door.
      While money and benefits tend to attract people to a company, it won’t keep them there. When a technician begins to look over the fence for greener grass, that is usually a sign that something is wrong within the workplace. It also means that his or her heart is probably already gone. If the issue is not resolved, no amount of money will keep that technician for the long term. The heart is always the first to leave. The last thing that leaves is the technician’s toolbox.
      Shop owners: Focus more on employee retention than acquisition. This is not to say that you should not be constantly recruiting. You should. What it does means is that once you hire someone, your job isn’t over, that’s when it begins. Get to know your technicians. Build strong relationships. Have frequent one-on-ones. Engage in meaningful conversation. Find what truly motivates your technicians. You may be surprised that while money is a motivator, it’s usually not the prime motivator.
      One last thing; the cost of technician turnover can be financially devastating. It also affects shop morale. Do all you can to create a workplace where technicians feel they are respected, recognized, and know that their work contributes to the overall success of the company. This will lead to improved morale and team spirit. Remember, when you see a technician’s toolbox rolling out of the bay on its way to another shop, the heart was most likely gone long before that.

      Automotive businesses and drivers in the greater Raleigh, North Carolina area can now quickly purchase premium used tires in-person from the country’s most trusted source, Champtires.
      Champtires was founded in 2009 to provide an option to expensive new tires. With prices up on almost all consumer goods, including tires and gas, anyone who drives, sells or repairs cars can benefit from lower priced high-quality used tires.
      Headquartered in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, Champtires sells tires across the continental United States and at two retail locations in the Pittsburgh, PA region. Now, Champtires is offering pickup sales at its Sanford, NC warehouse.
      “While we offer free and fast shipping for website orders, there are situations when waiting for a tire to be delivered is inconvenient. This gives people in and around Sanford the ability to quickly get tires when they need them,” said Brad Rea, president and CEO of Champtires.
      The cost difference between new and slightly used tires can be substantial. For example, BRIDGESTONE ALENZA SPORT A/S RFT 275/45-20 110 H tires are $408.03 per tire, or $1,632.12 for a set. At Champtires, like-new Bridgestone tires in the same exact size, brand and model are priced at $81.17 per tire, saving $1,307.44 for four tires.
      Goodyear Eagle RS-A 245/55-18 103 V tires sell for about $233 per tire. Buying a 9/32 replacement from Champtires costs $58.35, a difference of $174.65 for one tire.
      Saving money isn’t the only benefit of used tires – it is also the sustainable option because a perfectly good product is being reused instead of ending up in a landfill.
      To purchase and pickup tires in Sanford, simply call 412-462-3000 to place the order. Champtires’ warehouse is located at 1501 Douglas Drive, Sanford, NC 27330.
