The first 200 visitors to stand D42 on each day will bag a free can of Morris Lubricants MD4 general purpose maintenance spray.
Pro-Align – Stand D22
Show visitors will be able to view and experience three powerful time-saving systems from Pro-Align, designed to help workshops unlock a host of profitable servicing opportunities.
Workshops with more limited space or budget will be able to view the Hunter DSP700, a conventional alignment system that offers a high level of professional four wheel alignment servicing performance.
And for those workshops looking to improve their tyre changing capabilities, the fully automatic Revolution tyre changer provides consistent tyre changing times and eradicates any of the normal problems associated with changing ultralow profile or runflat tyres.
To see how any of these systems can increase your workshop profitability, talk to the Pro-Align team on stand D22, or attend the seminar at 12:00 in the Technical Troubleshooter room.
