Hello all from sunny California


Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Mike and I'm from southern California.


I am taking over a existing Dismantling operation with multiple employees.


Ive read a lot on this site and got a lot of advise from reading about other peoples situations. I hope this site is as helpful for me as other shop owners. I have a ton of questions and few people I can get unbiased answers from.

So again hello all and nice to meet you.

Well it started out as a hobby because I was tired of dealing with unreasonable customers, shoddy work brought to be to be fixed, and other problems associated with people and fixing their cars.


So I asked myself what do I like about turning wrenches. taking them apart is the fun part to me, fixing and putting back together not so much

I figured out a way to do just that and sell the parts that could be sold and scrap the rest. has worked out well for me so far

      There are many things to consider when creating a marketing plan. Among them are establishing a budget, what forms of media should be used, and whether traditional advertising, such as TV, radio, and print, is still relevant.  And of course, how much should be allocated to social media and digital advertising?
      All the above are essentials to any marketing plan. However, the first step is ensuring that you have a healthy workplace and that your employees understand your company’s culture and the overall mission and vision. 
      We all know that happy employees create happy customers. No form of advertising can overcome a toxic workplace with unhappy employees. If your employees are not creating an amazing customer experience, your marketing plan will not work.
      Advertising and marketing may bring in customers, but the people in your company creating an amazing customer experience will be the most important component of your marketing plan.  It’s the customer experience that sells work and gives the customer a reason to return. 
      Creating an amazing employee experience, which creates an amazing customer experience, is also the most cost-effective part of your marketing plan. In fact, it cost next to nothing.

      It's a safe bet that nearly every auto repair shop is looking to hire an employee, most likely a technician.  While I am a big proponent of a plan to recruit constantly, we can never forget about the employees we have right now.
      Do all you can to create a healthy workplace with high morale. Have a one-on-one with all your employees. Find out what they like about working at your repair shop and perhaps more importantly, what they would like to change. 
      Ask your employees what they would do to improve your company. If you have never done this before, you may get the "deer in the headlights" look, but don't worry, keep asking and in time your employees will be a great resource for you. 
      When people feel appreciated and know that their opinion counts, it helps them from looking over the fence for greener grass. 
      What do you do at your auto repair shop to help retain your employees?

      Perhaps this is a trick question, but it's worth a discussion.  Many auto repair shops spend a lot of money to get new customers. But what about the ones we have already?  
      What marketing strategies do you have to attract new customers and retain the ones you have now?

      This topic has been discussed before, but I think it's more relative today than ever. 
      Smart auto shop owners understand they need to constantly recruit, but what about keeping the employees we have now? 
      Let's revisit this topic and discuss your retention strategies and other comments on keeping your valued employees.

      As shop owners, we are constantly finding ways to motivate our employees, and often we think it's money. Money does factor into motivation, but don't employees want other things? 
      If we knew what motivated our employees, we stand a better chance of keeping them and improving morale and production.
      So, how do we find out? Do we ask them? Would they tell us?
