Your Auto Shop Spring Cleaning Checklist

Eagle Lifts in this clean and organized shop.
Eagle Lifts in this clean and organized shop.

Winter is hopefully coming to an end and spring is around the corner! I could not be happier to see this miserable Winter on it’s way out.  As I get ready for Spring, there are a few spring cleaning checklists that I am working on. I want to share with you some tips for your Auto Shop Spring Cleaning.

The first step I do in my spring cleaning efforts is to get rid of items that are obsolete or have not been used in years.That’s right…. this is where the hoarder in me goes through the stuff and gets rid of all the junk that is taking up space. Hard at first to toss (I might need this), but trust me …. it get’s easier and feels really good at the end. Continue reading Your Auto Shop Spring Cleaning Checklist

Eagle’s Wheel Balancer Calibration Procedure

Our service department has gotten a few calls lately asking how to calibrate their Eagle wheel balancer. It is important to read the operation manual before you start using any of Eagle Equipment’s service equipment. Eagle’s wheel balancers do not to be calibrated when you receive them. To allow our customers the ability to begin using their machine right away, our balancers are calibrated before they are shipped.

The main reason a balancer needs to be re-calibrated is because it begins to “chase weight”. “Chasing weight” means the balancer continues to ask for more weight once the first weight is applied. At this point, the machine needs to be calibrated.

Below is the Wheel Balancer Calibration instructions for models: EB-1040, EB-1070 and EB-1090. Follow these steps in order to properly calibrate your Eagle Wheel Balancer. Please call 1-800-336-2776 for any assistance. Continue reading Eagle’s Wheel Balancer Calibration Procedure

Guidelines for Receiving Freight

Eagle Equipment’s products are designed to be shipped via common carrier freight lines and we recommend that customers pick up their products at a freight terminal.  Having a product shipped to a business address or freight terminal is also less expensive than shipping to a residential address because of carrier restrictions on residential delivery.  Freight companies have terminals located throughout the USA and our sales team will help find the one closest to you.  Eagle does everything possible to ensure the timely arrival of your automotive shop equipment.  Customer service will call you after your order has shipped with an estimate as to when you should receive your equipment, but we cannot guarantee it will be delivered on this date.  After a product leaves the warehouse, the delivery process becomes the responsibility of the freight carrier.

Once the product arrives at the freight terminal, the dispatcher will contact you to arrange a pick up time.  Any and all products should be picked up within 48 hours of this notice.  One of the benefits of receiving freight at a terminal is having their staff to load the product onto your trailer or truck. When freight is received at a business or residential address it is always the customer’s responsibility to unload the product from the back of the truck.  Sometimes two people can unload the equipment by themselves.  However, lift gates, forklifts, roll back trucks, or similar equipment will often be needed in order to complete this task.  Lift gates can be used for unloading products such as tire equipment and motorcycle lifts.  Larger equipment such as two post and four post car lifts require a forklift to offload from the truck.  Lifts will also require a trailer to be transported to their final destination.

For convenience, we will allow customers to pick up their equipment from our warehouse within the following guidelines.

Customer Pick-Up Guide Lines

  1. All orders picked up will be subject to applicable North Carolina sales tax unless buyer has provided a NC Sales Tax Exemption Certificate.
  2. Customers are not allowed in the warehouse area without a salesperson.  Customers may not assist or interfere with the loading of the equipment.
  3. Customer is responsible for any damages to the equipment and/or their vehicle resulting from the loading and transporting of the equipment.
  4. Vehicle weight restrictions will be strictly observed.  Customers may be asked to provide weight restriction information on trailers.
  5. Eagle recommends side loading of lifts onto vehicles.  When this is not possible, the equipment will be rear loaded.  Eagle will make its best effort to center the load weight.  However, customers will be responsible for any shifting or falling of equipment or off-centered load that results in damage.
  6. Equipment will only be loaded right side up.
  7. Customers are responsible for strapping down their equipment on the vehicle.  No load will be allowed to leave the premises without being strapped down.
  8. Pick up vehicles must have sufficient width and length to insure that the equipment does not protrude illegally from the vehicle.  Trucks with tailgates must be able to fully close the tailgate with the equipment inside.
  9. Lifts will not be loaded onto pick-up trucks.
  10. Equipment will not be loaded onto vehicles that appear to be unsafe or lack proper equipment.  This will be determined at the sole discretion of the Eagle warehouse supervisor.

These requirements have been established to help insure the safety of you, your vehicle, and your equipment.  If your vehicle does not meet the above requirements, we suggest that you let our logistics department obtain the best shipping quote possible for your equipment.

Please call Eagle Equipment at 1-800-336-2776 for more information on receiving freight.

Wheel Balancer Benefits

The right wheel balancer used the right way can help customers enjoy the ride of their car, increase tire life and help get more mpg!  It is important to use your wheel balancer correctly to achieve the maximum results.

Certain wheels such as alloy wheels or oversized wheels can be more difficult to balance properly especially when they have hidden tape weights.  The good news is that most modern wheel balancers  will accommodate the hidden weights.

The key to success in using a wheel balancer correctly to achieve desired results is to mount the tire correctly.  Wheel balancers cannot adjust readings if the wheel is mounted incorrectly.

Receiving Your Shipment of a Car Lift, Tire Changer, Wheel Balancer, Spray Booth or Auto Body Shop Supplies

Thank you for choosing Eagle Equipment for your automotive equipment needs.  Whether your order ships UPS, LTL (Less Than Load, i.e.  Estes, FedEx ), below are a few tips to make receipt of your car lift, tire changer, brake lathe, wheel balancer, spray booth or other auto body shop supplies as easy as possible.

Our shipping department makes every effort to ship your order in a manner that allows for easy offloading, including arranging a carrier and extending the discounts provided to us by our shipping partners. When possible, a flatbed is used to transport larger items.

If your order consists of a product(s) that ships LTL, you are responsible for offloading. Please note there are additional charges for residential delivery, delivery to construction sites, college campuses, etc. If you are unsure as to whether you have a special circumstance, contact Eagle Equipment’s Customer Service department prior to the shipment of your order and we will gladly assist you with special handling.

We will contact you the morning following shipment to advise you of the estimated delivery date, as well as other pertinent order information.  If you require a specific delivery time, we will provide you with a tracking/PRO number and the phone number of the delivering terminal.  The dispatcher will then schedule the delivery at your convenience.

A car lift, tire changer, brake lathe, wheel balancer, spray booth or other large auto body shop supplies may require the use of a forklift and are too large for the use of a truck with a lift gate.  A lift gate can be used to offload items such as; tire changers/balancers, power pullers and ductwork.  In addition, certain paint spray booths are shipped in special large crates that require the use of a forklift with extensions to support the extra weight.

Careful inspection is required in order to make sure your order has not sustained any damage during transit.  Upon delivery, please visually inspect the external packaging for any crushed corners, loose box flaps, broken straps, retaping etc.  While you have the right to refuse any shipment you feel is damaged, we ask that you accept delivery and notate possible damage on the delivery receipt. IF THE DAMAGE IS EXTENSIVE, YOU MAY CALL US WHILE THE DRIVER STANDS BY, TO DETERMINE IF THE SHIPMENT SHOULD BE REFUSED. We recommend that you make a copy of the delivery receipt for your records.

Please retain all shipping containers and internal packaging, as it is likely an inspection will be required if your order arrives damaged. Call us immediately and we will instruct you on what to do, should your unit require replacement. We may ask you to take pictures using your cell phone or a digital camera and forward them to us.  Photos are a great way for us to expedite the process of filing a damage claim if necessary. Rest assured that should a replacement be needed, we will handle it as quickly as possible.

Smaller items that are shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground may not require a signature.  If delivery is attempted for packages requiring a signature and no one is there to sign, two more attempts will be made before the package is returned to its origination. If an order is returned to its point of origination and you want it reshipped, you will be billed for the outbound shipping charge.

While every effort is made to ensure your order ships correctly, from time to time, errors occur.  PLEASE REPORT ALL SHORTAGES AND/OR DEFECTS TO US WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS OF RECEIPT.  FOR AN EASY INVENTORY OF PAINT BOOTH COMPONENTS, REFER TO THE BILL OF MATERIALS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY HALF WAY THROUGH THE INSTALLATION MANUAL. THIS DOCUMENT LISTS ALL COMPONENTS ACCORDING TO QUANTITY, DESCRIPTION AND PART NUMBER.

AFTER SEVEN DAYS, YOU WILL BE CHARGED OUTBOUND SHIPPING FOR ANY ITEM(S) RESHIPPED.

Please feel free to contact us. We are here to ensure your experience with us is a pleasant one.  Again, thank you for choosing Eagle Equipment.
