I am not venting but just want to say that this month could potentially be a record month for our shop. It will at least be one of the three highest. This is much better than last year. I have a much better and stable crew and the economy is stronger as long as high gasoline prices don't kill it. I am counting my blessing and giving thanks to God for it all.

 

That's really great Frank. It has to mean that you are doing a lot of things right! Keep the momentum going!

I check the forums almost daily. I am learning a lot from ASO and enjoy the atmosphere you have setup around here Joe. As a new business owner some of the experience, tips, and information offered on this website have been excellent and really give me a direction to follow in daily operation.

Friends I would like to report that February was a record month for us. Our sales exceeding our best month by about $6,000. We are already up over $24,000 compared to last year.

 

That is great news! How do you account the increase? Did you do anything different?

Clear a bay for me... I'll be right up.

 

 

I think the following factors have helped:

 

1)The economy is a little stronger now than in the last two years.

2)People really are fixing cars that they would have traded before.

3)We have the most stable crew that we have had in quite some time and two technicians in our crew are exceptionally productive and driven. This is allowing us to get more done.

4)We are getting a lot of new referral business from Discount Tire that opened up the down the street. This probably averages 2-3 cars per day.

5)Our word of mouth referral business is steadily growing due to our above average customer service. People enjoy dealing with myself and my service manager.

6)A new VA clinic which employees almost 200 people has opened behind us.

      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.

      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?
