SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT

HOW STREAMLINED ARE YOUR ALIGNMENT PROCESSES?

As the collision industry develops and the repairs become increasingly complex, customers have come to expect their auto repair experience to be limited to a one-stopshop— the days of outsourcing alignment and measuring services are gone, and life moves too fast for your clients to tour their wrecked vehicle around their city’s various specialized repair facilities. The difference between having an inhouse measuring system can mean life and death for some repair facilities in Canada’s most competitive markets, making smart investing and proper use of production space an emerging science for shop owners. Plus, with the amount of cameras, sensors and other sensitive components on vehicles these days, it really is in a facility’s interest to invest in some amount of alignment technology, for the sake of safety and quality control alone.

Measuring and alignment technology can do more than just keep the client in your facility, but it can also streamline your dealings with insurers and provide a transparent picture of the repair process for all parties involved.

The field has advanced to a point where the units themselves are not just more compact than ever, allowing managers to maximize their production space, but also more efficient in their ability to map out a repair and compare what a repairer is facing with what a given OEM recommends.

The addition of these tools almost functions as an extra set of eyes on the shop floor—the key difference being that these eyes are computer-calibrated and can detect even the most miniscule of misalignments in a vehicle body.

Nearly every vehicle on the road today is equipped with some sort of advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), and nearly every ADAS needs recalibration after the smallest hit to a sensor-equipped area. Having the tools under your belt to complete that work is just the natural next step for repair facilities—a glance through the following products may be just what you need to get you started on the right track.
