Most of our automotive service equipment can be repaired and updated by you; the customer. This is the same philosophy that has been adopted by the computer industry. For service or repair issues, you can either take the computer back to the store or have a technician come to your location to perform the necessary repair. However, with the "Plug and Play" technical advances made over the last several years, you can probably update or repair your own computer.
We believe that you or your staff can repair or update most of our automotive equipment, if provided with the correct parts. Most of our customers want the opportunity to repair their own equipment as quickly as possible. Many of our larger National competitors have a service team that will visit your shop and provide parts and service at a very high cost to you. Many times the service person does not have the necessary parts on the truck and must make a return trip. This results in more delay and an extra cost for you. Many times a manufacturer will void the warranty if you have attempted to complete even the most simple of repairs without the aid of a factory service person.
We feel that you or someone in your shop is mechanically inclined. That is why you are buying automotive service equipment. We understand that the equipment you purchased from Greg Smith Equipment Sales helps to make money for your shop. We understand that you need to get up and running ASAP.
Our Atlas® automotive equipment is manufactured to the same exacting standards as other "NAME BRAND" products, yet sells for much, much less. For Greg Smith Equipment Sales to sell at the lowest possible price, we cannot afford to have a fleet of service trucks and a squad of door to door service personnel. However, we do maintain a fully staffed service department and a fully stocked parts department.
