Make Sure Your Auto Shop Offers Auto Refrigerant Recharges!

If you run an auto shop, make sure you aren't leaving money on the table by focusing on big repairs. Take steps to catch smaller, faster work as well by offering things like auto refrigerant recharges. Many people get their A/C systems recharged every year in the spring or early summer so that they get the most powerful cooling possible. If you advertise this during these times, you'll get a stream of customers who might not otherwise stop in. Even better, many of them are quite happy to just get the recharge, saving you from having to spend hours on diagnostics.


If a refrigerant customer does ask you to fix the leak, you have the perfect opportunity to do an upsell. The best part is that you still won't have to spend hours on finding out where the hole is. You can add a dye charge and then use a blacklight and UV glasses to make the escaping dye stand out. Then, you can zoom in on it without hassle.


One of the things you need to keep in mind when you offer auto refrigerant recharge services is that not all cars will use the same type. The best way to avoid problems is to make sure to deal with a supplier that offers many different kinds of refrigerant. Then, if you don't have the right kind for a rare system, you can just order it up. Within a couple of days, you'll have it in your hand and be ready to go.


CME Business Solutions makes a point of stocking a huge variety of refrigerant and inject types. You can always turn to them for both your most common needs and for the ones that only come up once or twice a year.
