Bosch Starters are Built to Handle Severe Weather

There are times when the hardworking starter in your customers' vehicle grinds and grinds, and then quits.

There are times when the hardworking starter in your customers’ vehicle grinds and grinds, and then quits. Vehicles left outside in severe cold or high heat place a real burden on every starter component, from the castings right down to the nuts and bolts. Starters from Bosch are designed to be up to the rigors of your customers’ driving requirements and are built to withstand the harshest environment for the best performance and longest life.

Bosch starters are available for most domestic, Asian and European automobiles, light trucks and SUVs.
 
“Starters are obviously essential if you want to go anywhere with your vehicle, and a wise decision when installing a replacement is to make sure you’re getting the most capable starter that will handle tough starting in all kinds of weather conditions – heat or cold,” said Fred Padgett, Group Product Manager, Alternators and Starters, for Bosch. “And, be sure the starter is from a reputable manufacturer that stands behind its product.”

Professional Preferred starters from Bosch are 100 percent full-load tested, for instance, they meet or exceed the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) torque, amperage draw and RPM standards, for proven cranking and starting performance under all temperature extremes. Remanufactured starters feature 100 percent new premium quality components, including major heat related/wear items such as starter drive and field coil, to withstand excessive heat and high electrical demands.  If an armature cannot be re-machined to Bosch standards, the armature is replaced with a 100 percent new armature.

Featuring the latest manufacturing technology, these premium starters, new or remanufactured, are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and Bosch’s Ultimate Protection Plan. This exclusive plan offers free, emergency roadside assistance 24/7, within two years from date of purchase – for unparalleled peace of mind.

Bosch is a proud supporter of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association’s Know Your Parts education and awareness campaign. This initiative promotes the importance of quality brand name aftermarket parts backed by full service suppliers, and its impact on delivering reliable products to today’s motorists.

The True Cost Of Comebacks

Comebacks are a hot topic today. You need to track all comebacks, determine the reason (tech error, part error, training issue, other) and then calculate the true cost of the comeback.

By Joe Marconi of Elite
Comebacks are a hot topic today. You need to track
all comebacks, determine the reason (tech error, part error, training issue,
other) and then calculate the true cost of the comeback.
Here are a few things to consider:
• The loss of time when performing the comeback; time that the tech can use to
perform other work and generate profit;
• The misc costs, such as overhead costs, supplies, cleaners, etc.;
• Towing costs, rental, etc.;
• Cost to morale;
• Reputation damage; and
• Reduction to your profit margin.
For every part issue, you need to
inform your supplier. Sit down with suppliers on a regular basis. Don’t return defective
parts until you have listed the parts, and maintain a report. Document
everything.
Part issues are increasing. Every shop
owner I speak to is frustrated over this.
Remember, comebacks kill your bottom
line. The more comebacks you have, the more they’re killing your profits.
