The Value of Tool Organization
Every dealership service department has Special Service Tools (as determined by the OEM) that allow them to complete vehicle repairs properly and efficiently. The time required to complete the vehicle repair correlates directly with the time involved in “finding” the special tool to make the repair. When the tool is located quickly, the repair can go forward.
But when the tool cannot be located, when the tool is “somewhere” in the shop, the repair is delayed. The tech wastes time searching for the tool. Sometimes it is found, other times a second tool is ordered with expedited shipping. Meanwhile the customer does not have the use of their vehicle because it’s still in the shop.
Benefits of Organized Tools:
- Technicians can find, use, and return the proper tool quickly
- Tools have an identified “home”
- Saves time and effort (time is money)
- Vehicle repairs are completed correctly with the proper tool which means satisfied customers
- Inventory at-a-glance
- You will know exactly which tools are in stock
- Customers appreciate knowing you have and use the proper tools

Satisfied Clients & Dealer Testimonials
The project went as smooth as can be. Woody and Dawn were great to work with and worked hard to transform our mess of a tool room into the most organized space in the building. They are fine representatives of your company.

It's nice to know that there is like-minded people that care about tools and have a system to make it easy to find the tools. You cleaned all the panels, cleaned the floors, re-structured a sagging shelf back there, the panels. Here we are ready to rock again. View Mike's video testimonial.

Our A-Team, Woody and Dawn, traveled out to El Paso, Texas to organize a tool room for Hoy Family Auto. They are a Volkswagen & Mercedes-Benz dealership that has been serving the area since 1973.
This was a large project which included sixteen panels and three shelves for Mercedes-Benz and ten panels and three shelves for Volkswagen to organize and store their tools.
