New System Verifies Need for Alignment in Under a Minute

Hunter developed the new Quick Check system to help shops quickly identify vehicles and drive more traffic to the alignment bay.

The company says that an estimated 60% of vehicles on the road in need of an alignment.

Quick Check captures toe and camber measurements and produces printed results in under a minute. Service writers can then use the easy-to-understand, colour-coded printouts to alert customers of misalignment issues and generate more repair orders for alignment service.

To perform the check, a technician simply positions the vehicle in front of the system, mounts the targets, rolls the vehicle forward to compensate the sensors and capture the measurements, and scans the VIN with a bar code reader to recall the OEM specifications built in to the system. Results print automatically at the console to be presented to the customer.

Quick Check systems use patented QuickGrip adaptors that install in seconds, a VIN bar code reader that comes standard, specialized Quick Check software, and the same high-resolution digital camera technology included with Hunter’s HawkEye Elite alignment systems.

Configurations include a mobile system that can be set up in virtually any shop space and a drive-thru system that works well in the write-up area.
