Installing Remanufactured/Rebuilt Engines Helps Shops Keep Customers

When a car comes into your shop experiencing serious engine trouble, the first reaction of the car owner may be to buy a new vehicle. However, a new car purchase may not be the best alternative for your customer or your business. If the vehicle is in relatively good shape, the Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC) suggests reviewing all options with the customer to see if a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is the right choice for them.

When a car comes into your shop experiencing serious engine trouble, the first reaction of the car owner may be to buy a new vehicle. However, a new car purchase may not be the best alternative for your customer or your business. If the vehicle is in relatively good shape, the Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC) suggests reviewing all options with the customer to see if a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is the right choice for them.

“Installing a remanufactured/rebuilt engine can be a win-win for a shop by extending the life of a current vehicle. The car owner will gain years of reliable service and avoid new car payments. In turn, the shop will retain the customer for future repair and maintenance needs rather than losing business to the new car dealer. It’s a sensible solution all around,” said Ken Carter, chairman of the Engine Rebuilders Council.

For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, a remanufactured/rebuild engine will make a customer’s vehicle more efficient and reliable, all without monthly new car payments and higher insurance rates. The Engine Rebuilders Council developed a cost comparison chart to help shops explain the cost savings and benefits of installing a remanufactured/rebuilt engine rather than purchasing a new vehicle
