Is the UK Automotive Sector Struggling?

With the looming cloud of Brexit still affecting both consumers and garage owners, the UK aftermarket industry has become stagnant in recent years, forcing workshops to look for other ways to increase revenues.

There is no denying that consumers are more conscious of servicing costs and maintenance. From everyday drivers to fleet managers, they are all looking for more reliability from their vehicles.

Take a look at these interested automotive facts:

  • Over 12.4 million diesel vehicles were on UK roads in 2017
  • A large proportion of drivers are unaware of how to reduce the running costs of their vehicles
  • People are keeping their vehicles for longer- average age 8.2 years now
  • Average annual spend on vehicle repairs/ servicing is £706.71 (2019)

In todays world, another growing concern for driver’s is the environmental impact. However, there is no denying that we are far away from fully relying on electric vehicles due to their premium costs and charging point infrastructure. Carbon removal is, therefore, the ultimate solution for many years to come.

In order to cater to this, garages need to look for state-of-the-art and innovative products that enable them to meet the growing consumer demands. There is no denying that our carbon cleaning machines fit into this category. Equally we have a range of powerful DPF machines which restore any DPFs out there in a quick, professional and cost effective method.

Not only do carbon removal machines enable people to do their bit for the environment but they get more out of their vehicle as well. This is because engine performance is restored, fuel economy is improved, and their car will run a lot smoother as well. These are all the sort of improvements any car owner would be looking for, no matter whether they are running a commercial vehicle or a car for their own leisure. 

As a garage owner, you want to get ahead of the competition and to do this, you need to provide customers with the sort of products that give them real gains and that they are unable to find elsewhere. This is what you can expect with a carbon cleaning machine like ours. It really is a no brainer when it comes to mastering the UK aftermarket and catering to current trends.

We have a range of machines suitable for all budgets, so speak to one of our experts and start thriving from carbon removal technology.

Viking Tyres Grow their Business by becoming a Centre

The latest progressive workshop to join our network of approved Carbon Clean centres is Viking Tyres in Derbyshire. After meeting us in Automechanika Birmingham we showed them a demo at their garage, and they were impressed, to say the least! By offering Carbon Cleaning they will attract new clients yet still be able to upsell to existing customers. Equally by offering DPF cleaning they can target retail car users and also local garages who all struggle with proffesional DPF restoration services.

During the install and training day, we also showed them how they can promote their garage further with our digital marketing support, so that they have a whole package to boost their business with various different elements of modern technology.

Government Pressure to Lower Carbon Emissions

With new plans to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint to net zero by 2050, companies and individuals are under increasing pressure to minimise their use of certain fuels and cut emissions. Teresa May took a bold step by announcing this measure to the mainstream media. (INSERT MAY- SCREENSHOT)

Whilst many businesses will receive assistance and tailored advice regarding the switch to cleaner energy, many individuals from the public are searching for ways to minimise their carbon footprint and protect the environment.

With air quality and pollution currently being a hot topic, consumers are changing the way they operate. Environmental concerns now feature prominently in decision-making, and purchases are heavily influenced by their potential impact on carbon emissions and harmful pollution.

Reducing automotive pollution

Carbon emissions arising from the use of vehicles has been a concern for decades, and there have been various initiatives designed to reduce the harmful impact the automotive industry has on air quality and pollution. The ultra low emissions zone in central London has been a controversial move with residents but has also paved the way for greener cars.

With dedicated carbon cleaning machines, mechanics and automotive technicians can now provide an effective way to reduce carbon emissions and pollution. Ideal for garages and mechanics who want to increase the range of services they offer and boost their revenue, carbon cleaning machinery taps into a growing market and ensures vehicle owners have access to the environmentally-friendly services they’re demanding.

Impact for End Users

With vehicle owners already suffering financially as a result of emissions incentives, many consumers are looking for ways to improve the fuel efficiency of petrol and diesel engines, so that their carbon footprint can be reduced. Carbon cleaning and DPF cleaning machines effectively remove soot, ash and carbon from combustion engines, thus ensuring emissions are reduced, pollution is minimised, and air quality is greatly enhanced. Moreso, the performance sector has also gravitated to carbon cleaning to restore power to their engines, as well as being a valuable service to maintain the health of their engine components.

By becoming an approved Carbon Clean Centre, workshops and garages can create an additional revenue stream by offering carbon cleans and DPF cleans to a very lucrative market. Get in touch with our experts to learn more.
