Automotive repair equipment must be durable and reliable for blocking machine blocks, automatic frame lift, and work with cast iron. Even the ugliest equipment will eventually be damaged. Sometimes the first push is to invest in a new machine to replace the damaged tool. Unless the equipment is intended very long and cannot be improved, a strict replacement policy is a bad business decision. In a business that focuses on repairing vehicles, why does business owner not improve its own equipment too?
Considering expenses related to garage stocking with all the necessary tools, they must survive as long as possible to see a good return on capital. There are many equipment in the workshop that match this description. Longer equipment that may no longer have manufacturer’s support can still be repaired. Buying used equipment can often cancel the warranty, so that it has the option to contract a machine store specifically for spare parts can be vital. Let’s look at a few examples.
Large equipment is an investment in itself. For example, the automatic elevator is a considerable cost, but in the end it is needed for automatic repairs. Replacing damaged automatic lifts is usually not feasible. The whole machine is the sum of many parts so that it shows and repairing the damaged part is an economical solution. Sometimes section $ 10 can distribute an automatic lift of $ 10,000.
Finding the brake lathe section is more economical than buying new brake lathes. Re-coating drums and brake disks don’t really require total replacement. Only moving brake lathes that usually see wear that will require new parts.
This concept easily applies to all complex tools used in automatic repairs. Just as bad spark plugs can stop the entire car, the leaky hydraulic line can deactivate the automatic elevator. In both cases, throwing the whole machine just wasteful.
Repair old and new parts
Many older equipment is built to last a long time, and they indeed last longer than companies that produce them. The manufacturer’s parts for older automatic lifts may no longer be made, but this is not an obstacle. Many companies currently specialize in spare parts and special improvements for current technology and inheritance tools. This practice is called the “Return Removal” section, because the stopped components are made specifically and the technical drawings used in their fabrication are then stored in the file, effectively placing the parts back to the service.
