The Space for In-House Alignments
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 6, 2019
I'm Steve Dawson; I’m the regional manager for Hunter Engineering in the Washington DC area. We’ll talk to you a little bit on collision centers and being able to offer alignment within the collision center environment. A lot of collision centers’ concern is, “I don't have the space for doing alignment.” The reality is you already have the equipment in your shop and the space to be able to complete an alignment. This outlines the portion of that equipment. You have a portable turn plate, so on a flat floor we can do a pre-assessment of a car just like we’re doing a pre scan, we are able to do a free alignment check on that vehicle to provide the information to the insurance company. And then through a regular two post rack or your existing frame machine, you can use those pieces of equipment to be able to provide your alignments right there in-house. It cuts down on your cycle time significantly, because now that vehicle isn't going out to neighboring shop, and it allows you to really make sure that quality is where you need it to be.
