What should you know before you open your own tyre bay? What is the essential equipment for that business?
Tyre service equipment – all you have to know
Before you open your tyre service, you have to get all the essential tyre equipment. We’re sure you know what that is – but we will remind you anyway. There’s a couple of things you have to consider:
- tyre changer
- wheel balancer
- car lift
- impact wrench
What is the most important thing while choosing a tyre changer? See the most important difference – automatic vs semi-automatic unit.
- semi-automatic tyre changer with an arm swung to the side
- automatic tyre changer – pneumatic arm, automatically goes to the back, adjusted with a pedal.
A semi-automatic tyre changer is a perfect choice for those looking for additional units in their workshop. It may also be a great choice for car mechanics who look to offer tyre change at their garages.
For instance, if you specialize in car repair mainly and tyre service is an addition, choosing a semi-automatic tyre changer is a good idea. However, if you made tyre service your main business, getting an automatic unit would be much better. Even though it might be a little more expensive, you will appreciate its advantages quickly.
Picture this – it’s the middle of the season and there is a line of cars waiting at your service’s gate. An automatic tyre changer would make your work much quicker.
