Greenwood’s Garage | Season 3, Episode 7: The new aftermarket

Over the next two to three years, auto repair shops in Canada will face a sink-or-swim choice, says management consultant Bob Greenwood.

“Vehicle technology will blow many shops out of the water unless they are prepared to transition their business to the next level,” he warns in his latest Greenwood’s Garage video.

He believes a lot of shop owners are stuck in inertia, wondering what’s going to happen, and trying to figure the future out by themselves rather than seek out credible resources and advice to help them get ready for what’s coming.

Change is coming… whether you’re ready for it or not.

    That would be a real shame for auto repair businesses to close simply because they didn’t keep up with vehicle technology. Cars are always evolving, so all mechanics should be taking classes or doing all that they can to keep up with the changes.
