Maximising wheel alignment efficiencies with proper training options

How Straightset is supporting the independent garage network

Maximising wheel alignment efficiencies with proper training options

Efficiency is a cornerstone of successful garage operations, and training mechanics to adeptly operate equipment contributes significantly to productivity and safety.

Familiarity with how to use equipment allows mechanics to diagnose problems swiftly and execute repairs with precision. This not only reduces the turnaround time for vehicle diagnosis and repairs but also enhances customer satisfaction, a vital component of any service-oriented industry.

When it comes to offering wheel alignment services to customers, proper training on how to use the chosen system not only helps to improve accuracy, which is vital for alignment, but leads to efficiency, allowing for more accurate alignments per day. In a rapidly evolving automotive landscape, proper training acts as a bridge between traditional mechanical knowledge and the demands of modern technology.

This has prompted garage equipment companies and manufacturers to respond by providing a range of equipment training options for skills development.

Delivering wheel alignment training to suit all

With its acquisition of the Supertracker brand, its partnership with Beissbarth and long standing relationship with HPA-Faip, Straightset is able to offer straightforward entry level laser wheel alignment technology, to reliable and trusted CCD systems to the latest innovative 3D technology.

For those who like to access their training online at a time that suits them, there are a series of short training videos that demonstrate how quickly and accurately wheel alignment can be done using a Supertracker laser or CCD system.

With a national fleet of service engineers, on-site installation training is also offered, enabling customers to get dedicated training on their chosen wheel alignment solution, in their own garage, with their own equipment. As well as access to wheel alignment sales experts, who have been in the wheel alignment industry for three decades.

Acknowledging the demand for uninterrupted hands-on training, Straightset took a proactive approach and opened a 3,000 sq. ft training studio at its headquarters in Nottinghamshire.

This dedicated space allows for training on a wide range of wheel alignment equipment on dedicated wheel alignment lifts, including the latest Supertracker STR1 green laser system, Supertracker six- and eight-sensor CCD wheel alignment systems, HPA-Faip C 880 iNEXT 3D wheel aligner, Q.Lign technology, and the innovative Q.Lign T-Series. The studio features a classroom area for interactive, theory-based learning.

Andrew Bates, Straightset sales director, emphasised the commitment to providing comprehensive support by saying: “Combined with Straightset’s national fleet of service engineers, we will have the most comprehensive alignment support service in the UK bar none.”

Choosing an equipment company that is dedicated to the aftercare support of its products, to keep customers operational, helps to deliver efficiencies, safety benefits and ultimately customer satisfaction. By ensuring staff are trained on the latest equipment, garages and dealerships can stay ahead in a challenging and evolving sector.

Straightset is an independent UK garage equipment company with 38 years’ experience in the design, supply, installation and servicing of workshop equipment. Through its Supertracker brand, it has been innovating and developing the very latest in laser and CCD wheel alignment technology.
