A successful dealership is about more than selling cars. The shop area is a key component to dealership operations. Focusing on good shop design and layout will provide adequate efficiency for your valued technicians.
use NATURAL LIGHT AND TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Natural light and temperature controlled spaces will help retain top auto technician talent.
The benefits of access to natural light extend to service members in the shop. In this highly competitive space, you want to create the most desirable environment for employees.
THINK ABOUT PARTS LOGISTICS
Locate fast-moving parts in an area that is easily accessible to technicians. Provide adequate circulation and clearance to allow for proper movement of larger parts.
Increasing efficiencies in your layout allows your service members to more quickly complete their tasks. This results in faster customer service and more money made for the dealership.
CENTRALLY LOCATE COMMUNAL TOOLS
Special tools and communal printers should be centrally located within the shop for maximum efficiency. Where quick service means more dollars made, it is important to implement any time-saving methods.
Provide items such as coffee, water, and an area for hand washing in the shop to help with both efficiency and staff retention.
These little details help highly-skilled auto technicians feel appreciated and make their work easier — helping your bottom line.
use HIGH-SPEED OVERHEAD DOORS
High-speed overhead doors assure efficient movement of vehicles in and out of service areas.
