Parts margin legality

Recommended Posts

I was talking with a shop owner near us, and the topic of Parts Matrix pricing came up. I casually asked him what type of margins he typically got on parts. He replied, "we just charge list price on all parts. Whatever the customer would pay at the parts store, we charge." Shocked, I asked him how he kept the doors open with such low margins (15% roughly). He replied, "well, you know it's illegal to markup more than 50%, right?" I said, no, I've actually never heard of that in my life. I asked him where he heard that from, and he looked at me like that is common knowledge to everyone, and I should be in jail right now for matrixing our parts.....!

 

Has anyone ever heard of this law, ever, anywhere??
