How Electric Vehicles are Changing the Game for Workshops

Posted on

As the world shifts towards more sustainable modes of transportation, Electric Vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular. However, this shift is also causing a ripple effect in the automotive industry, with workshops having to adapt to the changing landscape. As the automotive industry evolves, workshops and garages must adapt to the changing landscape. But one thing is for sure, the rise of EVs is not just changing how we drive but also how we do business.

One of the most significant changes is the impact on revenue streams. With EVs having almost non-existent servicing schedules, such as only needing a cabin filter replaced every few years, workshops are starting to experience a drop in revenue. The once-reliable revenue generators, such as oil changes and seasonal inspections, are no longer as profitable as they once were, leaving workshops searching for new income sources.

So, what is the solution? Tyres are now playing a crucial role in replacing lost revenue for workshops. As you know, EVs can be heavier than their fossil-fuelled counterparts. The reason is that the batteries they carry can add significant weight to the vehicle, resulting in higher tyre wear rates. Electric Vehicles (EVs) can wear out tyres up to 30% faster than traditional petrol and diesel vehicles, making the need for tyre replacements more frequent.

Choosing the Right Tyre Fitting Equipment

Starting a new tyre business can be overwhelming, with many different tyre machine combinations available. At Tecalemit, we are not just another garage equipment supplier. With over 100 years of experience in the industry, we have a wealth of knowledge and technical expertise that we are eager to share. What sets us apart from the rest is our commitment to helping new ventures succeed. We understand that their success is our success, so we go above and beyond to provide them with the best possible solutions for their business.

All our tyre fitting equipment is produced in Europe and designed with the operator in mind. For example, all our tyre changers, from our budget-friendly TIROPLUS to the flagship F10, can easily handle run-flat and low-profile tyres. No add-ons or optional extras. And this no-nonsense approach extends to our wheel balancers too. Using digital technology, all our wheel balancers provide the proven performance required in modern, demanding workshops.

The most important thing to remember is not to buy your equipment on price but to consider the features you need now and in the future. That is one of the main mistakes we come across because tyre fitting equipment can vary massively, even if, at first glance, they all appear similar. Tecalemit offers a wide range of high-quality tyre fitting equipment to suit every budget. We also provide excellent advice, alongside our first-rate customer service and technical support, to ensure you get the right equipment for your workshop.
