What Shop Owners and Technicians Need to Know About Today’s Motor Oil

Sponsored By Kendall Motor Oil

Date: September 22, 2020

The oil landscape is changing for shops, as the pandemic has changed travel patterns and caused consumer spending on regular vehicle maintenance to fluctuate. On top of that, the new GF-6 oil specifications — which went into place earlier this year — are causing shops to question what kind of oil they need to keep in stock. You need to find the right balance between giving your customers the service and choice they expect, while still protecting your own bottom line.

How can your shop reduce inventory, boost shop space, and ultimately boost profits? In this webinar, you will learn how one small addition to your shop shelves can give your customers more choice while reducing the SKUs you have to carry.
