ROAD TRIPS ARE HERE TO STAY!

Monroe supports driver safety and is ready to help grow your suspension business

With local travel here to stay for the foreseeable future, more than ever vehicle owners need to get their cars serviced to ensure they are in the safest possible running condition.
An important vehicle safety factor that tends to be overlooked is the checking of worn shock absorbers.
According to independently sourced market statistics, the current Australian industry standard for shock absorber replacement is eight out of every 100 vehicles serviced or inspected.
Based on known shock absorber wear rates and national averages for annual distances travelled, it is clear from these suspension replacement statistics that not enough vehicles are being checked for shock absorber wear.
If your workshop’s shock absorber replacement rate is low, then your customer’s vehicles may not be in the safest condition possible and you’re missing out on shock absorber replacement business.
All too often, many customers only learn their shock absorbers need replacement when something has gone terribly wrong.
By informing your customers of the increased emergency stopping distances, reduction of steering response and excessive tyre wear effects of worn shock absorbers, Monroe says you are assisting them to make sensible and highly responsible vehicle maintenance decisions.
When you select Monroe, it says you are selecting the peace of mind that comes with more than a century of engineering in every shock absorber, and a global manufacturer who backs their quality “Built To Last” promise with a five year Monroe OE Spectrum range warranty that is reportedly unrivalled by any competing ride performance products.

As most motorists rely on their mechanic’s opinion in relation to the replacement of shock absorbers, Monroe says your reputation for providing total customer care can only be enhanced with its industry only five year warranty, with every set of Monroe OE Spectrum shock absorbers fitted.
It explains your business can make the most of Monroe’s five-year warranty initiative by joining Monroe’s long term alliance program with repairers, suspension specialists and re-sellers across Australia: the Monroe Safety Specialist program.
Monroe explains that its Safety Specialist Program enables any automotive workshop, no matter what size, to become a direct part of Monroe’s national marketing strategy.

Monroe Safety Specialists are listed on the Monroe Dealer Locator page at www.monroe.com.au which is used by more than 20,000 consumers per month and along with a dedicated free call 1800 number, directs consumer enquiries to their closest suspension inspection and replacement expert.
In addition to this, Monroe says it also supports suspension replacement business growth through equipment that increases productivity and assists technicians in testing worn shock absorbers.
Monroe explains that the Monroe Shock Absorber Tester is an easy-to-use handheld high-tech tool that enables automotive technicians to test shock absorber wear on passenger and light commercial vehicles within seven minutes.
It says the tool makes it easier to clearly identify an otherwise invisible danger to vehicles that you are servicing. Technicians can also Bluetooth-link the tester to print reports for their customers.

It can be wall or trolley mounted and can safely handle the entire spring exchange requirements for most Australian workshops including Heavy Duty, Ford F-150, Toyota Hilux and FG Falcon models without the need for additional adaptors.
