Always good to hear from other market areas. I’d hope that’s 40 euro per tire mounted and balanced! I agree though seems no matter what country you’re in cheap tends to attract the wrong clients and I’m not looking for headaches.
Sadly it’s per one set 🙂 No one will ever pay 40 euros per tire that’s our market right now.…[Read more]
in our market prices for a set of wheels varies from 30 to 40 euros. This includes mounting, balancing, scraping old tires and other stuff like TPMS resets, weights. Fun fact we cannot take any money from customer for getting rid of old tires (this is regulated by law) and we cannot refuse to take old tires. What we do extra we offer our…[Read more]
I never thought about that. I understand it’s hard to implement but it’s easy to get these papers signed by my employees. Then I’ll have some additional leverage in case of previously mentioned situation.
Thanks a lot I’ll definitely get these papers signed by everyone in my workshop.
Thank you for your insights and support. I really appreciate it. I joined your discussion board from over seas. I’m based in eastern Europe so some rules are a bit different here but after I reviewed multiple topics on your site I realized that we share same views and we have similar issues.
My further actions are to change my employees and start…[Read more]
You’re totally right – it is a theft but it’s hard to prove because you have to catch them red handed. Customers are not willing to participate in this and no one is willing to give out any information as a witness. About the lead tech who handed the resignation papers – he’s 100% ok with this scheme because he could earn more money from the parts…[Read more]
I’m just willing to share my recent experience on Shop vs. Techs Customers topic. Currently I changed my Shop policy and no longer allowing to use customer supplied parts because I started noticing that some specific techs aren’t generating revenue from parts. To my surprise after a month of implementing this policy one of my best…[Read more]
One question I have… if you were to NOT give the customer a breakdown of parts and labor, wouldn’t you want to do it for yourself? That way you have much more information if the vehicle comes back.
We will still keep everything in our management system as we always do. Detailed labor and parts information. The only thing we wil…[Read more]
When you go to a restaurant do they give you a breakdown of how much they are charging you for the steak, and how much the labor was to cook it, and how much you are paying for the gas to fire the oven, etc etc… ? Nope, ’cause nobody cares. The same holds true for our business as well. We create these problems our…

Another thing worth mentioning to the customer – time is money. I often see customers running around the city during rush hours trying to find parts they assume are necessary to be replaced and often they choose the wrong part or even worse they can’t find it on their own.
I tell my customer just to calculate how much it would cost them to take a…[Read more]

Thank you for your input gentlemen. Much appreciate it. I’ll include social insurance taxes into my direct costs in further calculations.
Then fun part is that I didn’t mention. My employee has to pay his own taxes from 1050 Eur he gets which is 243,75 Eur. So at the end my employee gets 806,25 Eur.

I know this might sound silly but I have question regarding cost of a technician to perform the repair.
In our country we have multiple labor taxes but I won’t go into details too much. I’ll give an example:
Let’s say my technician does 3500 Eur monthly in labor sales after VAT. As per our agreement I pay 30% interest to my technician which is…[Read more]
