  1. In this town we have: O'reilly Autozone Napa Auto Plus Parts Plus We pretty much have to deal with all of them or windup waiting on parts since we are a fairly small metropolitan area. We get hit with shipping by WorldPac because everything comes by UPS or Fed Ex. They do nit have delivery here
  2. Goes to show there is more than one way to achieve an objective. Brains and creativity can go a long way to resolve some issues.
  3. I imagine that the batteries sold through Advance will have some dual branding. Will make it harder to sell Interstate as a premium product. The customer service and quality of Interstate caused us to switch to NAPA a number of years back and we have not looked back.
  4. Credit processing fees?

    Mine has stayed between 1.6 and about 1.8 for over six years. That is why I don’t look to change. Every other processor I have used played games. Some of them were out right thieves.

    GOnzo you sound like an important guy.
  6. Jiffy Lube

    Most consumers do not understand that the quality of the workers and knowledge of automobiles is probably lower at the quick lubes than anywhere else. However, for many consumers all the information they are getting about their cars are coming from these places. Do you think that most if these places have much understanding of VVT systems, BCM issues, PCM issues, etc. how many times have you been told that the guy at xxxx lLube told me xxxxx which was totally erroneous. Do you think very many master techs want to work at a Jiffy Lube? The whole concept of a quickie service on a vehicle is flawed in my opinion.

    All I can say is two (2) good men starting down different highways. My advice is have fun and realize none of us are getting out of this alive so enjoy the ride. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

    Amex is through Amex. Car-x has a national account deal with Amex.
  12. Credit cards

    A very good point. Too many people have no clue about business overhead costs.
  13. Credit cards

    .02% is only .0002.
  14. Credit cards

    I have been with this provider about 7 years and fees have stayed stable. The switched to chipped cards has created some increase in costs related to security. I suspect that is across the board with all vendors. One of the things is every month they run a security scan on our system to see if we pass. This is through something called Trustwave.

    Here is cover page of the October statement.
