  2. Where is everyone getting parts from?
  3. You are buying OEM parts every day I’m sure. Gates belts and hoses Delphi , Bosch, Denzo etc are just a small few that are OEM suppliers. Akebono brakes have good coverage for foreign applications and are also OEM
  4. I use NAPA ADO brake pads when I can never had an issue. Delphi AC and Ford fuel pumps etc. What I am getting at is always try to use OEM supplier parts. Again OEM supplier parts not your local dealership all though if you look some of there pricing is right at or sometimes better than others (yes rare) but it happens.
  5. I have 7 parts suppliers that I choose from and order about 99% myself per job in Mitchell. I always go for top quality and have very few issues.

    UPDATE FOR THE 4 BAY 2.5 TECH SHOP Last years average monthly sales were 42k Now to this point this year monthly average is at 51k. IT CAN BE DONE !
  7. How many of you have a four bay shop ? If you do how many techs do you have ? What is your average sales weekly , monthly ? What do you spend in advertising ? What was your sales in 2017 ? I am using this shop as a guide for those who would like to follow and see real time progress. For those interested just answer the questions so you and I can see what your strong points and if and where you may have areas for improvement.

    Run your business. Don't fall for everything your here just because someone said it is the way to go ! I have heard total BS from self proclaimed gurus time after time.
  9. After looking and reading some posts Here are some quick answers to some of them. Charging for Diagnostic time... Absolutely and is easy done. Fleet Customers.. Absolutely if you have the man power and shop to handle them. Be careful , you can loose them if your not equipped to support the amount of work. Do your homework. Damage and misfortune to a customers vehicle while in your care... If it's your fault just fix it. If not assess and address it quickly, the sooner the better. Know your Business not just part of it... Know it inside and out. Knowing your fixed cost is a must. Spend Wisely ..It takes money to make money keep it balanced , don't invest without returns. Advertise Wisely....Quick example : If you are around a large place of business where people work , Hospital, Shopping Mall, Manufacturing Plant Etc there are just a few suggestions of gaining customers for next to nothing cost, to attain those customers. A promotion on a business size card and NO, you don't have to discount a thing. Dealing with employees ..On cell phones , drugs etc whatever you don't address you condone! Hope this helps Need help with anything, I am a phone call or email away ! Dan Stevens Stevens Automotive Services

    Article: If You Think Your Shop is a Business, This Article May Surprise You

    Most of these techs turned shop owners own their job, not a business. It's a very difficult transition to make going from technician to business owner. Like damn near impossible, which is why the vast majority never make it Very well stated John Anderson and Joe Marconi. You must learn business to be successful. You can blast through your loans and or life savings very quickly if you do not make smart decisions. Own your business not your job!
