  1. So almost 4 years later, what's the best scan tool?
  2. Reviving this topic...interested to know what you and your techs are using for hand tools; snap-on, mac, craftsman, or other. I've always had a ton of craftsman tools with a few specialty snap-on and other branded tools. Growing up in the industry, craftsman was always cheaper and an easy exchange at the sears store. Now lowes is carrying craftsman and honoring warrantied tools so I'm starting to visit lowes over home depot for this alone. I'm also seeing a ton of hand tools from harbor freight and amazon.
  3. @Joe Marconi here's a pretty good article from last year in tire review that lays out some points and things to think about: Setting Your Auto Shop Up for Your Retirement
  4. Stumbled on this again, some people could use a set of these...
  5. Alldata has a little write up on price matrix I found online. wp-ad-repair_parts-pricing-matrix_0.pdf
  6. With A/C season fast approaching, just curious about what everyone is offering in terms of pricing, how you buy your refrigerant, do you offer free checks, and do you market A/C service in your area? What equipment like robinair lets say, do you use?
  7. Thanks for all the replies and feedback. I think the more techs and personnel you have the easier it is to manage with a service, otherwise like @Old and Tired said, you can probably buy the uniforms and wash them on site. Like with everything else, have to pay for service. It's like having your lawn cut, someone will do it if you pay them, otherwise you can save money by buying a nice lawn mower and doing it yourself. However, there's a price to pay the time spent cutting your lawn or managing employee uniforms I suppose.
  8. I was browsing Amazon looking for something had no idea that they have privately branded motor oil now. What caught my eye was the 5W-30 full synthetic dexos 5 quart jug at $17 for high mileage cars. Thought it was interesting. Wonder who makes it for them. So I did a little research online and found this youtube review Here's another:

  10. Just curious if anyone if anyone is using Cintas for shop uniforms and if you like their service. Are you getting rags from them also? What's the typical cost?
  11. What is everyone using for brake pads and rotors these days?
  12. Here's pretty good example of a matrix https://blog.csiaccounting.com/matrix-pricing-for-auto-repair-shops-template
