How is 2013 shaping up for you?

Recommended Posts

I get a chance to speak to a lot of shop owners around the country. While there are many mixed reviews on the economy, for the most part independent repair shops are doing well. Many have been holding their own the past few years and a surprising amount of shops are actually recording increases in sales.

 

How is your shop shaping us for 2013? Let us know how the last few years have impacted your shop and your area.

      If your shop is in New York, you need to go to this site and read about the new laws concerning installing new and used catalytic converters. The new law goes into effect June 1, 2013. I am surprised there isn't more press on this subject. New York is adopting California regulations.

      The MACS (Mobile Air Conditioning Society convention was held in Orlando Florida this year. Big turn out as always. Each year I'm asked to write for their magazine (ACtion) and this year was no exception.
       
      My coverage this year was on the heavy duty (Semi and RV) and Mining equipment section. I have a very strict word limit each year and this one was a toughy. 8 Instructors, 8 hours of classes and a 1200 word limit. Believe me, 1200 words goes fast. So I really...REALLY...had to nip this one down a lot.
       
      Here's the link to the unedited version on my website. Read it and I sure would like to hear some feed back if you think there is enough "overview" of the subject lines in the article. (Friggin hard to put it all in... geez...these editors can make it tough on a guy)
