Australian Clutch Services (ACS) offer a tool hire program for their specialised Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and Self-Adjusting Clutch tools to help support workshops looking to expand into these markets.
The tools are available for hire with the purchase of an associated ACS clutch kit through their distributor network.
The tool hire program has been developed to provide workshops with specialised tools that are often vehicle specific and required to complete these jobs.
“With more workshops looking to take on DCT clutch replacement jobs, we are finding many are restricted by the specialised tools they require for the removal and installation process,” explains ACS Sales Manager Colin Jevons.
“We offer a comprehensive range of these tools for hire with the purchase of the associated ACS clutch kit through our distributor network, meaning the workshop can take on these jobs without the significant investment in tools normally required.”
The tool hire program follows an easy process where the customer will order the clutch and associated tool through the ACS distributor, pay a deposit and small service fee, and receive both the clutch kit and tool from the distributor. The tools are available for a seven-day hire and then the workshop can simply call ACS and organise a collection directly from their premises.
“We hold stock of the popular tools in our warehouses around Australia to help reduce transit time and ensure the workshop can have quick access to both the installation tool and the kit itself,” explains Colin.
“We have been enhancing the program over the last couple of years and have already seen great results with many independent workshops being able to take on these jobs and expand their market opportunities.”
“With some of these tools being specific to certain model vehicles, this program then allows workshops to get into new markets and slowly develop these before purchasing the tools. We also offer the full range for purchase as well.”
With many modern vehicles utilising these types of transmissions and many of these vehicles now outside of factory warranty, ACS is experiencing increased demand for both the replacement clutch kits and also their tool range.
