Need Help Badly


Recommended Posts

If you read the new members area then you saw I am a new auto reapir shop owner. Our company had a great August, decent September, October....not so good. I have been running oil change $18.95 and disc brake $99.00 specials in the local paper. I need new ways to build customers that is fairly quickly. I am thinking of opening late on Tuesdays and Thursdays til atleast 7 pm. Also have a grand opening on a Friday or a Saturday, followed by a Care Care Clinic type of inspection.

Any ideas or bad sides to these?

Thats dead on. I actually had an oil change, tire rotation and 50 point inspection coupon in the paper for the first 2 months that had alot more upsells per car/volume then what is being generated now.

Also, I am trying to gain some more commerical accounts and they seem hard to come by. Most are serviced by the local competition. I am working on offering a higher level of service and quicker turnaround time to pursuade them to try us.

      Years back it was common to perform oil changes every 3 to 5,000 miles, and we would see customers 4 to 5 times a year. Today, you are lucky if you see customers once a year for an oil change service. 
      So, what are you doing to maintain customers on a more consistent basis?

      The word OSHA makes many shop owners cringe. 
      I was lucky enough years back to have my insurance agent suggest I perform a voluntary OSHA inspection. A private company did it at the time.   
      They found tons of violations; some we knew would be flagged, but most we did not. 
      Have you ever had an OSHA inspection? And what can shop owners do to protect themselves?
