How can I compete on delivery if I don't do hot shot or have the trucks?

The aftermarket is much better at hot shot delivery, but there's a secret around doing these types of deliveries entirely.

RepairLink shakes up this process and actually makes hot shot deliveries less relevant.

When shops start looking at part illustrations on RepairLink, they see all the parts they need, and many times they see the associated parts they didn't know they needed. These associated parts are usually why they are calling dealerships last minute for hot shot deliveries -- a need RepairLink quickly eliminates. Shops buying through RepairLink first usually order more mechanical parts on the front end of the buying process and eliminate time-consuming delays with hot shot deliveries.
