I was on the phone with my Carquest/Advance parts guy today and he knows how much their "diagnostics" affects us as shops and how much it annoys me. So he mentions to me that yesterday, they received an email from corporate stating that June 1st, all Advance stores may no longer perform free code scans for customers.
I thought this was a pretty big deal, if it is true, for us independent shops.
Hopefully this is correct and will be coming to all Advance/Carquest stores. He said judging by the email, it's not just our regional stores but all stores.
Maybe we can keep things changing for the better.
Next up, let's get Autozone and the other stores to stop their "diagnostics" as people like to call them.
What do you all think? Is this good for us, or will it not really make a difference?
