Thinkcar range available from Motor Parts Direct

Thinkcar UK is developing a national relationship with Motor Parts Direct (MPD) to enable more UK garages and technicians to access Thinkcar products more easily.

Thinkcar’s innovative range combines advanced diagnostics functionality with attractive price points. Solutions starting from under £500 for diagnostics are now selling in volume to individual technicians as well as businesses.

As a leading national motor factor, MPD currently has nearly 180 branches visiting a customer base of many thousands of independent garages across England and Wales every day.

“We’re collaborating closely with Motor Parts Direct to increase awareness of Thinkcar’s solutions,” said Alex Gillbanks, Managing Director of Impact Diagnostics, the specialist supplier behind Thinkcar UK. “We realise we’re not yet the best-recognised brand but when garages see the capabilities and the value Thinkcar can offer they soon realise we’re an extremely appealing option.

“Working with MPD is helping us access their loyal customer base, when those garages see Thinkcar being recommended by their motor factor, it can only help boost trust and recognition.”

The ever-advancing technology of newer cars means garages need to keep investing in their diagnostics skills, capabilities and equipment in order to be able to be able to complete even every-day service and repair jobs.

“It’s not about fixing ‘problem jobs’ anymore,” said Alex. “Lots of common component replacements or service tasks require technicians to reset service lights or code components to be recognised by ECUs and function properly.”

Thinkcar has already noticed strong demand on entry-level products which are not only an ‘easier sell’ due to reduced capital outlay but are also now frequently purchased by technicians themselves, or by the business for all technicians, to ensure there’s a diagnostic capability on hand for every ramp on every job.

Thinkcar also has an innovative remote services offering delivered through a network of real garage technicians.
