This series includes 24 Key Numbers. If you work on getting all of them in the ranges mentioned, your shop should be solidly profitable.
Key Numbers 101 Series – Key # 16 Vehicles Per Tech Per Day
For this key number, we want to know the average number of vehicles a tech in our shop services each day.
Last week Acme Auto’s two full time techs serviced 34 cars during the 5 days they were open.
34 vehicles ÷ 5 days = 6.8 vehicles per day
6.8 vehicles ÷ 2 techs = 3.4 cars per tech per day
When looking at this number for a typical independent shop which is solidly profitable, this number will normally run between 3.0 and 3.7
There is a fill in the blank form where you can automatically calculate this number for your shop in our Business Calculators area available to Premium Members.
This is a great learning and working tool for anyone in your shop who should know what the key numbers need to be.
Number of techs: Number of employees who spend all or most of their time servicing vehicles in some manner including tire and lube techs. Count part time techs as the appropriate fractional number. Example: A tech who works 3 days in a shop that is open 5 days would be counted as 0.6
