Automotive Dealerships

From adding a few bins to a totally new facility Borroughs sets the industry standard for automotive parts storage and handling. Because your Borroughs Distributor is so familiar with the automotive business and handles such a broad line of equipment, he or she can help you plan a system that will meet both today's requirements and tomorrow's growth. Your Borroughs Distributor can provide everything from small parts bins, wheel racks, and modular drawers, to a broad range of units for storing sheet metal, including multi-level systems. He or she can also provide complete survey service and expert layout and design, as well as experienced turnkey installation. Your distributor will help you achieve a Parts Department that maximizes expensive space and contributes to the efficiency of the entire dealership. Let Borroughs help you in making a parts department that will operate at peak efficiency now... and for years to come.

Make Your Parts Department More Profitable

Your Parts Department should operate as a profit center. To determine its profit potential, ask yourself the following questions:
  • Are you turning away customers because a part or accessory is not in stock or cannot be located?
  • Are your technicians waiting at the counter for needed parts instead of finishing a repair?
  • Is your CSI (Customer Service Index) not meeting the industry standard?
  • Is excessive capital tied up in obsolete or slow-moving inventory?
  • Do Parts personnel spend more time hunting for parts than servicing customers?
  • Are new model introduction parts difficult to absorb into your Parts Department?
  • Does your Parts Department show inconsistent inventory turns?
  • Does your Parts Department produce unsatisfactory payback or ROI (return-on-investment)?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, it's time to consider modernization. Even if your Parts Department is now operating satisfactorily, you may want to improve its efficiency and/or profitability. In either case, it's time to call your Borroughs Distributor.
