Launch Diagun Scan Tool
— It covers all makes and models, especially the European lines I specialize in such as Saab and Volvo.

iATN Archives and Chat Room — First stop on code or symptom retrieval, sometimes before customer even arrives at the shop (with phone interview data).

Nussbaum 2.32 HEL Twin-Post Clear Floor Hoist — This 25-year-old hoist has served faithfully, and as a bonus, either arm set can be lowered or lifted independently to tip vehicles a bit (such as draining oil — customers love that feature!).

Renegade Hot Water Parts Washer — It cleans very well and the water/soap does not injure my skin nor put off obnoxious and dangerous fumes as solvent washers can do.

Bernz O Matic Mini Map/Oxygen Torch — This mini torch has such a small tip that it can get in to loosen bleeder screws and small fasteners where a larger torch couldn’t reach or would be overkill. It gets plenty hot with the oxygen mix.

Mitchell 1 is making it easier than ever for auto repair shops to effectively manage and promote their businesses on Google and other social media platforms with the launch of the Google Campaigns from SureCritic, a new and exclusive feature within SocialCRM’s premium LocalSearch services.

 “The service is designed to give independent shops more control of their online presence and overall brand visibility on Google so they can cost effectively compete with the major corporate chains and attract new customers,” said Marcus Mackell, director of SocialCRM services for Mitchell 1. “A key benefit is that it simplifies the process of creating, sharing and promoting online content. With Google Campaigns, shops can do so with a click of a button through a single source rather than having to log into multiple sites, manage multiple profiles and rely on creative folks to develop content.”
