This may sound extreme or like scaremongering, but it is a fundamental fact; wheel alignment is conducted to ensure a car's wheels are functioning properly for optimal performance. If they aren't working correctly, accidents are more likely to occur, putting the lives of your customers and their passengers at risk.

How often should you recommend wheel alignment?
Everyone has heard the standard responses to how often you should be getting customers to check their alignment; 6,000 miles or annually, check your vehicle handbook.

A full wheel alignment service should be the first port of call for anyone involved in a collision. Hitting a curb is enough to knock alignment out and leave wheels in need of replacement sooner than expected.
Also, to ensure the car's wheels are functioning to their optimal performance, making sure your customer's wheel alignment is checked whenever a steering or suspension component is replaced, can help to identify any issues or areas that could be fatal out on the road.
Vehicle Wheel Alignment: The Bottom Line!
Consequences of not checking a car's alignment could be lethal. Having reliable car wheel alignment tools can make a HUGE difference.
Remember –if your customer has been in an accident recently, advise they get their alignment checked immediately!
When it comes to alignment, your customers can either pay now or pay later. Simple!

Hofmann Megaplan is pleased to be exhibiting at Automechanika 2018, the UK's leading exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and vehicle production sector.
This year we will have a wide variety of equipment and experts on hand to talk you through every aspect of our machinery.
We will be exclusively showcasing two brand new pieces of equipment. The megamount 813XL is the first tyre changer of its kind in the marketplace; a fully automatic machine, but without the traditional tilt back arm! This Tyre Changer uses an innovative parallelogram design to operate the mounting head with control and precision, removing all flex while fitting.
We will also be launching our new wheel alignment system, the Pulse 8. This Italian aligner is changing industry standards! The Pulse 8 from Hofmann Megaplan is the wheel alignment machine that fills the gap between our Ecoline 88 (ccd) and the Ssence 600 HD (3d). This launch will also be accompanied by a new balance program. This will feature on the MS420 and is an OWB program (one weight balance) which is completely new.
