Tim, welcome to the forum. It is good to have you! If you can give Geez some help I am sure it would be appreciated. I know quite a bit about General Liability insurance but have no exposure to how that shakes out in the performance end of this business.

 

I have owned my shop since 1998 and have done everything from classic Mopar and GM stuff to the "Fast and Furious" trends and now into the SVT Fords (lots of Cobras, Lightnings and GT500s). I've been a long time reader of the forum. I really like seeing topics pertinent to our business and seeing what everyone else is doing/ going through across the country....it makes me feel not quite so alone, lol.

 

The problem with my industry is the amount of animosity between shops. This just means that you can't exchange information with those around you. Thank god we have the internet, hehe.

I couldn't agree more that is why myself I don't ever talk down my competition even if I think they did something stupid or are crooks. All you do when you say stuff like that is cause the people you are talking to wonder if that is how you talk about them...

Unfortunately that is true. Shops love to down each other. However, in the long run that makes us all look worse. It is nice to be able to be on a forum like this and try to help each other, learn from each other, vent our frustration, and laugh at Gonzo's crazy stories.

 

 

Somehow, I think I'm out there reaching into everyones thoughts... to take life a little easier... one crazy customer at a time.

We all have to fix cars... we all have to learn new stuff that manufacturers develop. And, if in some little way we can help to bridge the gap between shops... I think it will make a better work place for all.

Thanks for the thoughts... I've got lots more stories... lots... Gonzo

Thanks for your reply. You are right about animosity amongst the high perf. shops. We have a couple that really don't like us. We won't respond to them. This happens mostly on the car forums. I learned in the health business not to bad mouth the competition.

 

I PM'ed you.

 

Thanks.

      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 ?
