Why choose an automatic machine over a manual one?

We are living in a world where technological advancements that save users time and money are at the forefront of developers’ minds. Trying to make the lives of business owners easier whilst producing greater results drives innovation. Vehicle tyre changers are no exception to these advancements. The obvious two advantages to automatic machines are:

Saves time

Instead of spending hours demounting and mounting a tyre with your hands, spend only a few minutes changing the tyres of multiple cars!

The task of changing a tyre by hand is not an easy one, especially not when there is such an easy alternative. An automatic tyre changer is more expensive, however you could increase the efficiency of your garage tyre changing services massively, growing productivity and your revenue. This alone means the machine will easily provide a decent return on investment.

Saves energy

As the automatic tyre changer is much more user friendly and convenient to use than a manual tyre changer, it requires less hard work from your team, allowing them to get through more work each day! This makes it easier to grow your team of fitters who are excited to use the latest equipment.

In conclusion…

A manual tyre changer is much cheaper than an automatic machine but requires more physical resources to complete your garage services. If you do so smartly, investing in a good automatic or even semi-automatic tyre changer can save you a lot of time, energy and money in the long run!

We always have great deals on pre-owned or ex-display machines too, allowing you to save even more!
