Fans of gearhead television shows like Two Guys Garage, seen regularly on the Speed Channel have an opportunity to check out an episode that we played a small role in this weekend.
Arthur Irwin, producer for Two Guys Garage, contacted us several months ago, asking us to provide a TTech transmission fluid service machine that would be featured on the show. How could we refuse? We sent them a TTech transmission fluid exchanger, that they used to illustrate the benefits of servicing your transmission in this most recent episode. This show features two experts in the field who go over a wide variety of services that are aimed at instructing you on the best techniques for servicing autos.
This episode is scheduled to air beginning 7/16 and air several times throughout the week. Once it airs, we will be able to bring you a copy on this blog so you can view the episode as it appeared. But if you don’t want to wait, just check out the Speed Channel for their schedule.
ASEDeals.com was recently contacted by the producers of the very popular television show “Two Guys Garage”. They asked us to supply them with a transmission fluid exchange machine for an upcoming episode. In case you aren’t familiar with it, this show is an extremely popular program that airs on the Speed Channel. They cover any and all aspects of servicing vehicles in a typical garage atmosphere. They typically demonstrate a specific type of service in an informative way with knowledge and professionalism that only the hosts can provide. These guys have many talents, including remodeling many autos on another popular show – “Overhaulin”.
When they asked us for a transmission fluid exchange machine, our first suggestion was the TTech TT500 Transmission Fluid Exchanger. It is made by one of the premier names in the industry – TTech. We have been carrying their products for over 15 years now. The TT500 has all the features you would want in a trans. fluid exchanger, and right now, we’ve got a killer deal on them. Prices have NEVER been lower. Plus, we’re throwing in an additional 15 fittings – Free! This deal is only good until the end of June, so don’t wait.
The episode is scheduled to air July 16th. We’ll keep you posted.
Part Two of a three part series –
Get more efficient. Time is money. If your help isn’t working on some one’s vehicle, you’re not making money. If they are working, but not in the most efficient manner, then you’re not making as much money as you could. It’s just like looking at your home’s heat flushing out some drafty old windows. You need to get more efficient and put some caulk in some of those cracks. If your employee is working on cleaning a part in the Parts Washer, and he’s standing around waiting for it to complete it’s cycle, he could be doing something more productive than just standing around. Even if it’s just sweeping the floor around his work area.
Build trust. Most customers don’t trust their repair shop. They probably had a bad experience at a shop at one time and now bundle you in with all the other “crooks”. As an example, I brought my car in for service one time to a local independent repair facility that I had been using for several years. They seemed to be a reliable and trustworthy place. I had dealt directly with the owner, and my instincts told me I could trust him. Looks like my instincts were wrong. Along with other things I needed done, I asked him to rotate my tires. When I came back to pick up my car, I noticed that the tires were not rotated. I could tell because of the brake dust build-up on the front rims. They were still on the front rims. Forgive me if I don’t often wash my car. I’m very busy. Anyway, after looking at the bill, I asked the owner if he really rotated my tires. He said yes. I gave him another chance to come clean, and told him about the brake dust. He stuck by his story. At that point, I just politely paid my bill and left. I haven’t been back since.
Invest in new equipment that could generate revenue. As they say, “It takes money to make money”. Consider it an investment. Just as we place many ads in trade magazines. We don’t have a way to immediately quantify the benefits of the ad. But we can notice the results long term. If you invest in our new RTI smoke machine / leak detector, you may have to lay out over $1400, but it will save you loads of time in diagnosing problems. It will pay for itself in a relatively short period of time. Or maybe our RTI ATX-3 Transmission Fluid Exchanger. It can exchange the transmission fluid directly through the dipstick tube. Talk about a time saver. You’ll be changing fluid in a fraction of the time it previously took.
Look at your local market. Do what nobody else is doing. Evaluate what the market offers as far as your competition. Find a need and fill it. You may want to concentrate on being a transmission specialist. Maybe brakes, or body work. See whats out there, and what’s not out there. Market research is a priority for any successful business.
Next Post – Part 3
We’ve been carrying RTI Technologies products for many years now. One of the most popular line of products is their line-up is their Transmission Fluid Exchanger.
They exchange the transmission fluid faster than ever with their new “Boost” technology. This technology incorporates a diaphragm pump that reduces the backup from the transmission pump. Pressure is therefore increased, reducing exchange times dramatically. Especially in low pressure systems and in low temperature situations. And we all know, time is money.
It has a unique design that does not apply pressure to the inlet side of the car’s transmission pump. It does this without the potential of harming the vehicle’s transmission.
The RTI Transmission Fluid Exchange Machine will reduce service times down to 4 to 5 minutes. That’s pretty fast.
Also available is a model that offers a dipstick probe that allows you to exchange the fluid by just dipping a wand down the dipstick tube. No need to hook up to the cooler line. Now we’re getting even faster!
Performing a transmission fluid exchange service can be lucrative for your auto shop. This fact is a large reason why many automotive repair facilities are purchasing a Transmission Flusher, or transmission fluid exchanger.
Once you explain to customers the benefits of this service, it’s an easy sell. The purchase of one of these machines will pay for itself within a very reasonable time frame comparatively speaking, when compared to other major pieces of shop equipment.
Once the decision to purchase a transmission machine has been made, then the more difficult decision is ahead of you. With all the machines out there, which one should you get?
We carry several models by two different manufacturers. Both manufacturers are top notch with machines that are state of the art an include great warranties and parts availability. The best news is, they’re all made in the USA.
TTech has two different machines. First the TT400, which is powered by 12 volts DC. This unit has 23 fittings and has quick connects to the cooler line quickly and easily. It exchanges 100 % of the ATF in a proportional, even exchange.
The TT500 has the same features as the TT400, but also includes some additional features. It has a backlit fluid cylinder, so you can see the fluid level easier. It also includes point-of-sale literature to help you explain the benefits of the exchange. This model includes a more comprehensive supply of 34 fittings. This model also operates off of 110 volts AC.
We also carry machines by RTI. They have the most technologically advanced machines with fully automatic operation. They have Fluid Flow Direction Indication – Automatically indicates if you are hooked up to the vehicle correctly. Audible alert and light signal technician to reverse hoses if necessary. They also have a comprehensive color coded adapter selection with reference chart. They even have a model that allows you to stick a probe down the dipstick tube for the fastest service around.
RTI also offers an optional add-on feature – a Power Steering fluid exchanger. Yet another revenue producing service.
Give us a call and we’ll go over all the details with you so you get the machine that’s right for you.
