  1. @Brent J did you ever find the techs you were looking for? if did you ever try indeed or linkedin? If you create a company page on linked in your can post jobs I believe.
  2. Is anyone taking part in CTI or WTI training? Online or classroom? here's the website https://ctionline.com/

  4. Just getting an idea of what everyone is using for TPMS tools and sensors these days, anything new?
  5. So 8% is on all top line sales, correct? So if the shop generates 1M in sales, the service writer makes a gross 80k? How does the vacation fit in there? How is that and other time off paid? Depends on your sales, but 8% seems a little high. Why not lower the % and pay a salary plus a % of sales for days worked or the week.
  6. Specialization is good but typically it would be the "owner" who would be the specialist that starts a business around that specialty. Since you don't have that experience, I would find your specialist techs before moving this direction and just do general auto repair when starting out.
  7. What software are you using for invoicing where you have it integrated?
  8. What's everyone using and what do you prefer in terms of online parts ordering? Are you using something integrated into your shop software or a standalone website from napa, o'rielly, advance, autozone, or other local or regional parts supplier? What do you like about it? Using Napa Prolink and AdvancePro along with worldpac speedial
  9. So almost a year later since the last reply by @Old and Tired , what is everyone using for batteries currently?
  10. Oddly enough the high mileage synthetic blend is $1 more than full synthetic!
  11. That's a good point, similar to the steak at a restaurant example. When you go to a bar or restaurant, don't expect to get a 6 pack of bud light for $11.99. Expect to pay over $5 a bottle. Your not going to get that same price on the steak you would buy at the butcher's shop either...
  12. So I'm assuming you don;t have a merchant account now to accept payments, correct? Some banks have mobile payment systems, apps, etc. If you are looking for something simple to get started, have a look at : Paypal - https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/pay-with-app Stripe: https://stripe.com/payments/features Chase: https://merchantservices.chase.com/support/product-support/mobile
