February 25, 2014 Service European cars with ease using Drivetech Euro Tools

As Australian consumers increasingly choose to own European vehicles, the opportunity for workshops to offer servicing for continental makes and models is growing at a rapid rate.

The Drivetech Euro Tools range makes it easy and cost effective for workshops to service European vehicles using quality, specialised tools that won’t break the bank.

“Drivetech Tools make difficult jobs easy and the dedicated Euro Tools range makes servicing European vehicles straightforward,” explains Drivetech Category Manager, Mario Novak.

“Given the differences in bolt and fastener design in European engines compared to Japanese or Australian built cars, it’s simply not possible to use the same tool kit across both categories.”

“If workshops don’t cater to the growing number of Australians owning European vehicles, they may be missing out on a huge amount of business.”

“Statistics tell us that consumer preferences are changing and Australians are buying more European vehicles than ever before. Increasingly, workshops have customers bringing in Audis, Volkswagens, Peugeots, Citroens, Renaults and BMWs. Once upon a time these were considered prestige cars but now they are popular across the board because they are more affordable.”

“For workshops, this means you need to tool-up or face turning customers away.”

Meeting ongoing demand

The Drivetech Euro Tools range was introduced to meet growing demand from workshops for high quality specialised tools at a reasonable price. Since it was introduced in 2012, feedback on the Drivetech Euro Tools range has been extremely positive.

“People are impressed by the quality of the products given how affordable they are. All Drivetech Euro Tools are manufactured to European OEM Standards by reliable manufacturers so what we’re able to offer through this range is products that are OE standard but less pricey.”

“The products in the Drivetech Euro Tools range are specialised, so once upon a time they were hard to source. What we’ve tried to do – and succeeded in doing – is meet market demand by providing a range of specialised tools for European vehicles that suit the needs of a wide range of repairers.”

It’s worth stocking Euro Tools

Drivetech Product Manager, James Sagris, says Drivetech’s Euro Tools range enables workshops to stock a range of tools to service European vehicles with a minimum of fuss.

“Since the range launched, we’ve seen many savvy workshop owners stocking up on Drivetech Euro Tools and promoting the fact that they service European cars to customers. Because Drivetech Euro Tools are readily available and combine quality with affordability, they are a worthwhile investment for any workshop.”

Take the Euro Tools range of multi spline CV shaft socket tools for example. Available in four sizes, they make removing and re-fitting drive shaft flange bolts on Volkswagens and Audis simple.

“Stocking this tool in your workshop makes a lot of sense,” says James.

Expanding range

The Euro Tools range is constantly expanding.

“We now have more than 160 parts in the Drivetech Tools range and this figure will continue to rise,” says James.

Euro Tools are part of the wider Drivetech Tools range, which includes a comprehensive range of specialist, vehicle specific, transmission specific and general workshop tools which make the repairer’s job easier and safer, while delivering customers a high quality repair that will stand the test of time.

Drivetech Euro Tools can be ordered direct from Drivetech, with most orders delivered same day or overnight.
