Printed copies of the 76 page quarterly garage equipment brochure will be arriving at of The Parts Alliance members Allparts, Bromsgrove Motor Factors, Car Parts & Accessories, CES, GMF, GSF Car Parts, SAS Autoparts, SC Motor Factors and Waterloo.
With warmer weather and longer days, thoughts can turn to summer with this edition’s time-savers, revenue-generators and workshop must-haves.
Highlights include a strengthened 2017 air con programme; at the entry level just £1,599 + VAT can see garages take delivery of a fully automatic Kheos Plus R134a service unit, supplied with database and printer. This even includes onsite commissioning, training and an F-Gas licence, making it The Parts Alliance’s lowest ever package price.
At the premium end, there’s a choice between three fully automatic units from Bosch or Waeco’s award-winning automatic German-made ASC units, which carry a multitude of vehicle manufacturer approvals for added peace of mind.
“We’re finding that working together across The Parts Alliance is helping us to develop more exclusive offers to benefit both our members and the garages buying them,” said John Wright, Head of Garage Equipment and Customer Development at GSF Car Parts. “And the growth in business for our suppliers completes a win-win-win!”
Examples include all the ZM Heaters and Angry Jester ranges, which are fully exclusive to The Parts Alliance. So too, and new for this issue, is the superfast GE-Tec diagnostic unit. For under £800 + VAT, the tablet with EOBD and Bluetooth connectivity brings vast vehicle coverage and powerful specialist test functions, with live data graphing and module coding capabilities.
There’s exceptional value on the cover, which features an EAE electro hydraulic two post 4T lift at only £1899 and the SIP Hot Steam commercial pressure Washer & Valet pack for only £1295, again both exclusively available through Garage Essentials and The Parts Alliance.
Service to garages has never been better. GSF Car Parts head office based sales team has combined with The Parts Alliance’s five Technical Sales Managers to offer the ‘best of both worlds’ by combining the experienced field and phone teams seamlessly.
