When was the last time your dealership took a realistic inventory of your service equipment?

Take a look at your lifts. Regular maintenance on your lifts will give you years of dependable service and more importantly, safety. Replace the hydraulic fluids on older lifts- this will decrease the odds of break downs and also prevent hazardous waste spill.

Your in-ground lifts can be situated closer together to help fit extra bay space. But above-ground lifts are cheaper and able to reposition into new spaces. You can also purchase above-ground two-post lifts that have line voltage and compressed air delivered to the post itself.

How much attention do you give to your air compressors? Techs are using less air than before, making it easier for your shop to turn to smaller, more efficient air compressors. Chip Walker recommends a screw-type compressor- it’s far less maintenance and quieter.

Don’t overlook opportunities from your suppliers. Oil vendors may offer you oil distribution under a three-year contract on bulk oil. You can also look into possible financial support from your OEM. No matter where you look, start today. It’s time to get your shop into shape.
