    Top Shop Challenge: What are a couple of things you'd like to highlight that happened last month?

    This month we dialed in our internal messaging platform, we are having techs take pictures and videos of their recommendations to help customers better understand the reasoning behind their recommendations. In the month of May last year we did a total of 5020 hours in the shop and this year we did 5664 hours! Thats an increase of 13% for the total shop hours! Going into one of our busiest months we are excited to see what this new photo and video messaging platform can do to help our customers better understand what their cars need to make sure their cars are ready for the summertime!

    "Buy the cheapest tools you can find. When you break it, you have used it enough, then buy the best tool you can afford." -- Adam Savage Don't be a tool snob. Find the OEM. Matco sells an oil pressure gauge set for $189.95, while you can get the exact same set branded OTC from Summit Racing for $95.99. Lang tools makes a 48 piece thread kit they sell for $147.82, while SnapOn sells the same kit for $184.

  • Top Shop Challenge: Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer. Does your shop do anything special either for Memorial Day or in general during the summer?

    Our Pacific BMW After-Sales managers took out different tools for Memorial day and treated all employees to a delicious barbecue! Grateful to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation's freedom and grateful for those who share their culinary skills for others to enjoy at work!

    I'd be happy with just a warm shop in the winter. Heat is limited with garage doors opening and closing all day long. Odds we'd ever get AC would be slim to none. (edited)

  • Top Shop Challenge: Does your shop offer any sort of flexible or non-traditional schedules for technicians?

    Our shop is closed Sundays for family day. The advisor/tech schedule is on a three-week rotation. For example, an advisor and their team will have Monday off and work Tuesday-Saturday. The next two weeks they would work Monday through Friday, then the cycle starts again. We find that having a weekday off allows you flexibility and 3-day weekends are always nice!
