Mount Shop web­site up­date

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

The Mount Shop people have been busy work­ing on their web­site for the past few months, adding some great fea­tures, and mak­ing the parts or­der­ing process much eas­ier.

The web­site of­fers two lev­els of ac­cess af­ter a quick, one-off reg­is­tra­tion process. There is non-ac­count holder ac­cess which al­lows work­shops which do not hold a Mount Shop ac­count ac­cess to the on­line cat­a­logue, where they can search and view part ap­pli­ca­tions and view new prod­ucts.

To get all the ben­e­fits of the new Mount Shop web­site, shop own­ers/ of­fice man­agers who are non-ac­count hold­ers are en­cour­aged to fill out an on­line ac­count ap­pli­ca­tion form and open an ac­count.

Ac­count holder web­site ac­cess al­lows staff to view trade and re­tail pric­ing, lo­cal and na­tional stock quan­ti­ties, search cer­tain prod­ucts by size, and or­der on­line.

Businesses are able to reg­is­ter mul­ti­ple users against their ac­count which al­lows all staff mem­bers to have in­di­vid­ual ac­cess to the site.

Ac­count holder ac­cess also pro­vides businesses with an ad­min log-in; this is aimed at the ad­min­is­tra­tion team. When logged in as ad­min, you can view and print all in­voices and state­ments, up­date your ac­count de­tails such as con­tacts, user id and pass­word, and ap­prove ac­cess for other users.

The Mount Shop web­site is touch­screen ca­pa­ble, mean­ing you can ac­cess and nav­i­gate it eas­ily while us­ing your smart phone or tablet, this is a great fea­ture for mo­bile tech­ni­cians need­ing to or­der parts while on the go. The Mount Shop web­site is an on-go­ing project and there are a lot more fea­tures to look for­ward to in the com­ing months, reg­is­ter to­day at

Mazda 3/Ford Fo­cus bushes

A com­mon is­sue Mount Shop has picked up on is the worn front lower arm rear bushes on the BK se­ries Mazda 3 and the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Ford Fo­cus.

These ve­hi­cles share the same plat­form and many of the same parts, so it may come as a sur­prise to you that al­though these bushes look iden­ti­cal, the thread type is in fact dif­fer­ent be­tween the Mazda and Ford vari­ants.

Many sup­pli­ers may tell you to re­place the bolts or sup­ply you with a bush mi­nus the bolt threads, and tell you to find a nut yourself.

The team at Mount Shop, how­ever, un­der­stands do­ing this means the part is not a di­rect OE spec re­place­ment. So rest as­sured know­ing when you call Mount Shop for a Mazda 3 or Ford Fo­cus lower arm bush, you will get ex­actly what you need, with no hid­den sur­prises.

Mount Shop is con­tin­u­ously re­search­ing not only new parts, but cur­rent stock, and en­sur­ing tech­ni­cians are sup­plied with the cor­rect part first time. Get in touch with your lo­cal branch by call­ing the team on 0508 86 66 86.
