The company has completed a detailed workshop upgrade for a major Victorian dealer, Sunbury Ford

Sunbury Ford Dealer Principal, Nick Dempsey, approached Precision Automotive Equipment seeking to increase the customer service experience from the dealership’s service lane.
Precision Automotive Equipment says it immediately identified that the Sunbury Ford workshop service lane could be revolutionised with the addition of Hunter Engineering’s newly developed Quick Check Drive Inspection System.
This system provides automatic vehicle alignment results in an instant. As the vehicle drives through it, Quick Check Drive providses touchless total toe and individual camber readings, while Quick Tread Edge measures tread depth and tyre edge wear.
Each component analyses live data and instantly displays results with no stopping, with no labour and no data entry required. 
The Hunter Engineering unit uses Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras to identify the vehicle and present the readings to customers on the easy to understand ‘Flight Board’ displayed high and bright in the workshop.
The Quick Check Drive system also includes Body Damage Cameras that photograph the vehicle as it drives through the lane to ensure proof of vehicle condition is also on file. 
The autonomous inspection lane means vehicle inspections are completed in under ten seconds, with no interaction from a technician or an advisor.
In line with the significant increases in wheel alignment business generated from the Hunter Engineering Quick Check Drive system, Precision Automotive Equipment also supplied and installed a Hunter Hawkeye Elite Alignment System at Sunbury Ford.
This system is linked to HunterNet – an online portal provided by Hunter Engineering that collates data from all Hunter units within any workshop.
This system allows service managers to set performance targets, inspect ROI and identify workshop service trends. This technology allows individual workshops to conduct their own, real time business research. 
In addition to the supply and fitment of the Hunter Engineering Quick Tread Edge and Hunter Hawkeye Elite Alignment System, Precision Automotive Equipment also designed and completed the full workshop lubrication system fit out, the ergonomic relocation of existing workshop equipment and the installation of new Rotary two post hoists throughout the workshop. 
“The Sunbury Ford workshop modernisation is a prime example of the direction that automotive workshops need to be heading to secure a strong and profitable future,” Precision Automotive Equipment General Manager, Peter Hewitt, said.
“The vastly improved initial customer experience all the way through to increased mechanical accuracy and overall business efficiency that this state-of-the-art equipment provides, ensures that Sunbury Ford, along with its customers, benefit from the most modern technology available.”
Precision Automotive Equipment is a part of Australasia’s largest automotive aftermarket specialised company, BAPCOR Limited.
