With Connect Workshop Consumables having introduced a range of consumables for the garage, workshop and bodyshop network, the company’s Brand Manager, Jonathan Adkins, discusses what the range can offer factors.
‘Dealer no more’ is the catch line, and it means what it says on the box! This is great news for your customers — no more visits to the main dealer. You can offer a more comprehensive range at a massive cost saving, with no loss of quality. At Connect, we continue to do the research behind the scenes, constantly contacting both resellers and end users, and discovering the most needed components, the most commonly asked for consumables, and then offering a cost-saving solution.
The range is vast, and includes trim clips; common rail fuel connectors; injector spares and consumables; electrical sensor connectors to suit VAG, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Ford, with ranges from Renault, Peugeot Citroen and Volvo arriving mid-2020; electrical sensors for Bosch, Delphi and Denso fuel injectors; wiring connectors to suit Supaseal, Delphi, Deutsch, Econoseal, Mate-N-Lock, and 250 type connectors; brake fixing screws and retaining spring clips, plus a range of sump plugs, covering over 8,000 different engine applications.
To illustrate how comprehensive each range is, as examples, Connect offers over 800 trim clips, relating to over 1,500 OEM references and covering more than 5,500 vehicle applications. On top of this, injector washers are available as an assorted box or sold individually. Replacement O-rings and spring clips are also available.
More than 160 injector electrical sensors connectors are listed and they are also available in 18-piece sets. The Bosch set includes EV6 female fuel injector 2-pin connectors for Toyota, Ford, GM, Chevrolet, Mazda and Jeep; EV6 female fuel injector 2-pin connectors plus Bosch diesel injector 2-pin connectors for Ford and Renault. Three connectors of each are included and all connectors come with a 20cm wire harness attached. Similar sets are available for Delphi and Denso injectors and Japanese vehicle injectors.
It’s a win-win for both you and your customers — simply ask them to get a price from the main dealer and then compare that with the Connect Workshop Consumables price. You’ve made a sale! Going one step further, we also offer eye-catching, up-to-the-minute merchandising, which is designed to make the correct component easy to find.
