Share Good News and Sales Records With Your Staff

 

Any time your shop has an exceptionally busy week and one that is profitable, you need to share this with your techs and staff. It’s not important that you share the numbers if you don’t want to, just bring the staff together and simply saying thanks for a great job shows that they know you really appreciate their efforts. Everyone needs praise and recognition, sometimes more than money.

 

When customers go out of their way to compliment you or your shop, your staff needs to know this too. Employees need to know that the work they do does not go unnoticed. Too often, the only time employees hear any news is when it’s bad. Improve moral, highlight the good that happens. Trust me when morale is up, sales will go up…that I can promise.

Good point Joe, excellent idea.

 

If there's one thing that I can say for myself (and I'm sure others will agree) "The thank you at the counter is only complimentary. It would be nice for a customer to call back and tell you how well you've done, but get something wrong and the phone rings right at opening time. If we...as the professioanl repair guys and gals, would share our experiences and compliment each other on a job well done, I think a lot of us could go home knowing... hey, somebody out there appreciated our efforts."

 

Another on the spot commentary from Joe... We could all learn a thing or two from him.

      From what I am hearing from my fellow shop owner friends, the shops in my area, Northeast (New York), auto repair shops are busy and steady. However, there is a feeling from many shop owners to be cautious about the future. 
      Things that give shop owners concern: Inflation, the cost of living affecting the consumer's ability to afford auto repairs, dissatisfaction with the current administration,  and possible recession. 
      Your thoughts?

      We are almost into the 4th quarter of 2022, which means that you need to consider your 2022 tax return. Many shops are having a very good year, which means there may be more taxable income at your bottom line.
      What do you do to plan for and minimize paying taxes, while still maintaining a cash reserve?

      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?
