I have had a hissy fit about the changing schedules …
@plonkster our resident car enthusiast on all things repairs. So Suzi needs new front wheel bearings, right front, so I said to replace both, after 24 years. Shudder on the steering at 2000 rpm in 5th gear only when the road is flat/and or downhill. Not balancing. Did that twice.
Twenty-four years on the OEM bearings, not too shabby I say.
The repair shop says to bring her in at 7h30 so that they can put her on the lift before 8am. There are a lot of cars there, all early. Simple plan, lift the cars that need 2 hours on the lift first and get going.
Got there at 7h30, Chaos. The schedule has changed since yesterday late afternoon. Dire impact on all their bookings for the day as the LS is also at 2pm. Their entire day is “moertoe”. May only get the car back tomorrow.
The owner agrees, stick to the damn schedules, then they can work around that. This changing all the #($*% time is messing them, and therefore their clients, around badly.
So we spoke, they need 3-phase inverter UPS to lift the lifts, coming down is fine, don’t need power for that. Need a lot of cars serviced to afford one.
