Key Talking Points

  • “The most important car is the car not at your shop yet”
  • Acquired in 2013, outgrew shop, 35K a month- now over $190-220k per month, maximizing space
  • 220-280 cars per month
  • Growth- 59 parking spaces, 7 bays, 10 employees
  • Management flow- parts person (detailed oriented, assists the service writers, estimates), car transporter (the shop backbone), increase nonverbal communication
  • Success is small changes that are accumulated 
  • Any bill over $1,500 requires a deposit due to limited space in the parking lot.
