How many lifts does everyone have per tech?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how many lifts do other shops have per tech? We have 5 lifts with 3 &1/2 techs and we still need more. To add more lifts we need a expansion and then we need to try to find a quality tech.

      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?

      When a consumer brings me their car to repair, it is my obligation to repair that vehicle back to its original state. This goes for mechanical repair and for collision. I am primarily and mechanical shop, but we get many customers with collision related issues. We will also work with local body shops, performing some of the mechanical and handing over part of the job, such as paint work, to the expert. Basically, I take care of my customers to the best of my ability.
       
      The increasing situations with insurance companies that want to supply us with used parts is growing to a point where I no longer trust the intentions of some companies.
       
      Recently, a customer with a 2012 Subaru, ran off the road and bent a wheel, destroyed the tire, bent the strut and spindle. All was ok, but they wanted to send us a used wheel from a yard down south that I was not familiar with. After three attempts I put my foot down. I am not opposed to “used”, but I am opposed to “pure junk”. These wheels were damaged, slightly bent and did not meet the standards of my shop or my repair. I ordered a reman wheel from my regular supplier, informed the customer of the situation and told the insurance company the price of the wheel.
       
      There was a few back and forth communications because the insurance company and they would not pay the difference at first, which was about $100. The determining factor was the phone call from the customer who gave the adjuster an ear fill how she felt. Begrudgingly, the insurance company paid the difference.
       
      The lesson here is to remember that the job you are doing is your work, and a reflection on you. Let us not reduce our standards and integrity because the insurance company wants to save a few bucks. It may come back to haunt us.

      Long story but I need to know what this green wire is for or what circuit it's in. It's the harness in the left rear of the car that goes from underneath up into the left quarter panel. 
      Thanks and Happy New Year, hope your shop is doing great!

      SVI- implemented by the OE’s or dongle devices in legacy vehicles. Levels the playing field. Secure information. It’s the consumer’s choice. Right to Repair- delayed because of an injunction rumors  ADAS standards- recalibration challenges, standards, and targets are often written prior to actually doing the work and how it will be implemented. Sensors age and degrade over time and the recalibration process will need to be changed.  Dynamic recalibration in the future- increasing capacity of computer systems in vehicles.  Perception systems- augmented sensory collections, future communication with roadside stations, and other vehicles. Control modules are the brain/spinal cord, sensors are your eyesight and touch.  Exponential growth in software and application of software- Ethernet network- greater bandwidth, enables the data to be your personal profile preferences  The consumers choice is made up with policies and technology Connect with the show:
