Auto repair businesses know it: running a successful auto repair shop can be a tough challenge. The good news is that you can get better results with a few changes in your workday.

Use automotive masking tools you can trust to increase productivity

Automotive masking tools you can trust to increase productivity

To get more and more customers for your car repair business you must provide a great job. To achieve this, you have to use the best tools you can find.

We mean first of all:

  • Masking tapes - high performance masking tapes provide better performances in less time and flawless results under any condition. You want to obtain no paint bleed, high temperature resistance, no adhesive residues. These will make you save so much time.
  • Plastic films - if you aim to spend less time in masking, look for masking films with corona treatment applied, a manufacturing process which uses a high frequency discharge to permanently improve the adhesive properties of a plastic substrate. This means less struggles to keep the film in place and less paint dripping.

  • Masking paper - a more traditional masking tool, it offers consistent results at a cost-effective price point.


Faster and neater service means happier customers.

Give monthly discounts to attract new customers

Small business owners, or even bigger body repair shops, usually make discounts to boost their activity, especially when starting a new business.

We suggest you periodically make a discount on your services or give a free product to make their cars shine every day.

Then, spread the voice on social media, in local magazines, on your website, through leaflets or anything that suits your business best.


Reward your most loyal customers

Working on potential customers is important, but did you know that it’s more expensive to find new customers than to keep the loyal ones?

Focus on long-term relationships to keep a constant income, give your regular customer special care, make them come back each time they need help for their vehicle maintenance.


Invest in technology

Use a management software for car repair shops to further improve your productivity. It will help on many occasions, such as:

  • scheduling customer appointments
  • assigning repair jobs to your mechanics
  • invoicing
  • tracking your performances


Always do a perfect job

The first rule of any business is to keep the promises you make. If you advertise a great service, you must always guarantee it.

Always do a good job and keep amazing your customers each time they choose your repair shop.
