Sears Gets Proprietary Hunter Alignment System

Sears has struck a deal with Hunter Engineering to purchase, install and use proprietary alignment equipment at its Sears Auto Center locations.

According to Sears, the Hunter HawkEye Elite 3D wheel alignment system has been installed at some 50% of its 850 U.S. locations. The system, said Sears, "reduces the time to check a vehicle’s alignment specifications to 90 seconds or less. Previously, an alignment check took an average of 20 minutes.

“This state-of-the-art technology is offered to all Sears Auto Center customers, whether they bring their vehicles in for tires, a new battery, an oil change, shock absorbers or struts, or other automotive services. Now all customers’ vehicles will automatically and seamlessly receive a free wheel alignment checkup,” Sears said.
 
Sears did not say when the system will be installed in all of its auto centers.
