  1. I don't think shops should consider other shops in their market area when setting prices. In addition, while overheard costs may differ from shop to shop, that should not be the only thing that is considered when setting labor and part margins. Yes, a shop with a low overhead is different from a shop that has just invested in new equipment and added 3 bays. However, a job is worth what a job is worth. And that may mean that the shop with the lower overhead has an advantage and will make more money as compared to a shop with a higher overhead. But just because a shop has low overhead, does not mean that its will be low forever, and should charge accordingly to invest in the future. If we are to raise the industry collectively, we all need to charge what we are worth. I hope this makes sense. Great conversation!
