We have another great install to tell you about! This time in Ilkeston, Derbyshire where SMART Tyre centre has taken delivery and installation of their new, all singing and dancing, Hofamnn Megaplan megaline SSence 600 3D alignment machine. It now only takes them a matter of minutes to diagnose any alignment problems a vehicle might have, that ultimately could cost the the customer hundreds of pounds in the long run.
As an added option for the Ssence 600 the megatab gives a live view of the vehicles alignment, without having to look up at the screen positioned to the crucifix (where the camera is positioned). This great for workshops where vision is restricted or to hand to the customer as a live view.
or Nottingham area, call SMART on 0115 837 7273.

Wheel alignment is not overly complicated. In most instances modern alignment equipment can ‘prompt’ a technician through the process, to achieve swift and precise readings. But how do you make it work and develop into a consistent revenue stream for your workshop? Well, it could be down to how you communicate and market it to your customers.
A excellent example of this is FIVESTAR AUTOCENTER – Huddersfield. They realised very early on that they needed to take the mystery out of alignment and start a conversation with their customers about the benefits to a perfectly aligned vehicle, that ultimately could save them hundreds of pounds in the long term.
To do this they offered a FREE complimentary alignment for a promotional period, on each vehicle that came through their doors. This enabled FIVESTAR to assess and diagnose any severe cases of misalignment and discuss the options available to the owner.
FIVESTAR decided they wanted to at the forefront of alignment technology by purchasing a Hofmann Megaplan Ssence 600 3D aligner. The Ssence 600 system represents the very latest 3D wheel alignment technology. Utilising the ‘reflective target’ type measuring head and camera system, the Ssence is fast, simple, and ideal for those customers looking to get swift and accurate results. The software has been designed to make life as easy for the operator as possible, minimising unnecessary procedures commonly found on other, similar systems.
Every customer was handed a print out of their vehicle’s current alignment values and talked through the options available, making sure they had all the information on their vehicle to make an informed decision. If they decided work was necessary, FIVESTAR happily carried out the work and provided proof of the work carried out.
… needless to say this was successful. With their equipment paid off in less than 12 months and influx of new and existing alignment customers.
Great service FIVESTAR!
