New opportunities for independent garages is very much the theme of the latest Eure!Parts promotional catalogue, available with the May/June edition of Autobiz.
This is volume 11 of the highly anticipated publication and aims to very much help garages to capitalise on current and future business opportunities.
Alan Gaynor, Managing Director of J&S Automotive, the driving force behind the Eure!Parts concept says, “Eure!Parts aims to keep garages informed of the latest industry developments and highlight the opportunities these present. Currently there is lots of talk about alternative powertrains, such as hybrid, electric and further down the line hydrogen fuel cells. In this edition, we make the point that even electric cars still need parts and servicing, illustrating this by highlighting opportunities and parts availability on Tesla models.”
Alan says that if a garage can work on a Tesla, they can work on any vehicle, regardless of how it is propelled and through Eure!Parts and trusted local parts suppliers, they can access all the parts, tools and protection equipment they need.
A second major opportunity highlighted by this issue of Eure!Parts, is vehicle air-con service and maintenance. This is a massive area of profit potential for independent garages and bodyshops and one that is growing by the day. The catalogue shows how garages can access all their A/C essentials through their local supplier, including leak detection equipment, system cleaners, lubricants, lubricant test kits to ensure correct replacement, air-con gases and A/C service machines. Alan comments, “Air-conditioning is an area of massive opportunity for workshops and doesn’t require huge investment. Effective air-con is especially important on electric and hybrid vehicles, so every garage needs to be involved in this fast growing sector.”
A third area of expanding potential for garages is in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Eure!Parts can offer easy access to this market with a complete plug and play digital ADAS package. This includes all the required equipment, hardware, software, training and information required to offer an ADAS calibration and repair service, fully installed and ready to go.
The catalogue also includes promotions and special prices on a host of in-demand parts and equipment, including wheel bearings kits, timing belt kits, welding gas kits, bulk buy Mannol manufacturer spec lubricants, and CTEK battery maintenance and charging range, as well as highlighting injector cleaning together with DPF opportunities using JLM products.
The Eure!Parts deals and special offers are available from participating local motor factors and run until September 30th.
