Soms say that if we don't bail out GM, Ford and Chrysler, the economy will suffer because of all the jobs and comapnies that are directly tied to the auto industry. Others say to let them die. They did it to themselves.

 

What are your thoughts? Bail Out or let them Die Out????

 

Should they be bailed out?

 

No.

 

Will they be bailed out?

 

Yes.

 

What we are seeing now is a show put on for the public to portray those in power as being very concerned and conservative with our money. However, the deal is done. The Dems will not allow the unions and their other buddies in Detroit to suffer. Once Obama takes power, the money is coming...likely with much more to follow.

 

If the fed is determined to waste billions, it may as well be in my state! :)

While billions of dollars are being wasted and used to bail out wall street and other miss-managed companies, people like you and me must foot the bill with our hard work, blood and tears. NO ONE will bail us out. But we keep America rolling. And most jobs are created by small buisiness, not big business. BUT, the power is not within us...it's found in the unions and the with big business.

 

The state of this once great land has serious issues.

      As a former auto shop owner, one of the things that kept me up at night was not knowing enough about all the labor laws and human resource regulations.  
      How do you keep up with all the changes to the labor laws and human resource regulations in your state?

      Firstly let me say that I an just a regular guy from the UK who is the owner of a seven bay service centre/garage. I am not a financial expert. The dreaded inflation is upon us again. For the guys as old as me then this is nothing new. Back in the 70,s we had 15% inflation, but we all got by and lived for better trading days. Here in the UK we have always looked up to the USA because of your business prowess. So what do you guys look out as your worst enemy!
      When prices are going up then I find that the gap opens between rich and the poor's disposable income. So this question will effect garage owners in different areas. My garage is in a poor area with many immigrant families who drive cars. So this means we have to be more flexible with pricing. Finding out if your customer can afford that service ! For this reason we devised a three tier service pricing structure. This has also the effect of not loosing your profit margins. 
      The lowest price should include an oil and filter change and a general vehicle check over. This way we find the customer will perhaps be able to afford a service and your profit margins wont drop. This is just one small idea that we carry out! What do you guys do in these times of high inflation ?

      Most communities have a variety of repair shops, dealerships, and franchise models.  Do you consider them the competition, or colleagues?
      Do you think it's worth it to get to know other auto businesses in your community?  To share and exchange business ideas and strategies?

      There seem to be mixed opinions on what Business System is the best. And also, not all business systems fit a particular repair shop model.
      There are a lot of new players in the past few years: Auto Leap, Protractor, Teckmetrics, Shop Boss, Shop Monkey, and more.
      Are you happy with your system?  What features are important to you?

      We all know that techs and service advisors have two distinctly different roles. And both get different training.  Service advisors are on the front lines every day taking care of customers, selling work, organizing work, and a lot more.  
      While most customers don't engage with the technician, is there a time when we should allow the customer to speak to the technician?
