    The purpose of the quick service cart is to increase the efficiency of the technician when performing common services, especially services where the customer is waiting. Once in place, the technician should be able to complete the service in most cases without returning to his toolbox and without going elsewhere in the shop for some type of tool or supply. The parts person or advisor places all needed parts on the cart before or early in the service process. Note that the list of tools and supplies includes items the tech will likely need at some point – but also eliminates extra items that are typically included in sets and assortments, reducing tech time locating what he needs quickly. Detailed labeling of where each item goes is highly recommended.
