Profit From Waste - New Strategies for Vehicle Servicing Facilities: Chapter 01: The History of Automobiles and Service Stations
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 1 of 5 for this video. Early automobiles were expensive, uncomfortable, and unreliable. Poor road conditions also aided in public skepticism of its uses. Without the convenience of filling stations, fuel was hard to come by. Soon Americans became infatuated with motor vehicles. As automobiles became less expensive and road conditions improved, filling stations increased in number to meet the demands of a growing number of drivers. The need for service and repair increased with the filling station taking on these roles. Today the reliability of vehicles tends to be taken for granted. However, the need for routine maintenance, servicing and repair still exists. Proper management of waste produced by the vehicle servicing industry can translate into significant cost savings to shops.
