Really, anything that makes a shop run more smoothly is a good thing at this time of year.
Green, OH (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
With summer appearing to hit early throughout much of the U.S., auto dealers and repair shops need to stock up now on supplies that will make their busy season more productive and efficient.
“Really, anything that makes a shop run more smoothly is a good thing at this time of year,” said Paul Brown, president of AutoShop Express.
Useful products include service dispatch control tags, which allow auto repair shops to keep track of vehicles, keys and paperwork, he said. The mirror-hang tags are printed on heavy card stock and feature red numbers on one side and green on the other. Each tag includes two smaller, perforated, detachable tags on the bottom – one for the vehicle’s key and one for the work order holder.
This is also a good time of year for shop’s to check their inventory of work order holders and replace any that are worn or ripped, Brown said.
He recommended replenishing inventories of other items that are used up quickly during the summer, such as:
- Disposable seat covers
- Oil change stickers
- Floor mats
- Steering wheel covers
“This is a great time of year for auto dealers and repair shops to prepare and make sure they’re not caught short on supplies once business picks up for the summer,” Brown said.
