We’ve all heard the figure of speech “Jack of all trades, Master of none”. This may mean something slightly different for every industry, but the underlying sentiment is still the same: a jack of all trades is “good” at many things. They aren’t “excellent” at anything.

The automotive industry is full of jack-of-all-trade types. Automobiles are complex enough to require several different types of service. For example, mechanics need to know how to do oil changes and fix tie rods, swap out mufflers, change power steering pumps… the list goes ever on.

As the layers of complexity increase, so does the need for specialists. Given the fact that many vehicles these days are run almost completely by computer systems, it makes for an even more elaborate knowledge set required; you not only need to know how all the parts work, you need to know how the parts work in relation to the computer system that runs them.

 

 

 

 


Transmission Work Needs Specialists

Transmissions are the most complicated part of your vehicle, by far. Plus, they are becoming more and more specialized all the time—with electronic control systems, valve bodies, solenoids and of course computer interfaces. Up until the 1960’s, you could only take your car back to the dealer if you had transmission problems, as there was no one who specialized in transmission maintenance and repair. At that time there were only 11 different types of transmissions on the market, versus nowadays where there are over 172 different types of transmissions with different applications in different vehicles.

Specialists Make More

When you are a specialist in your industry, you are an authority—you’ve crossed that line from general practitioner to expert. If you think of this concept in relation to doctors, who do you think gets to charge more: the GP, or the brain surgeon? Similarly, a car’s transmission is an essential, complex component—something that the vehicle cannot do without. Because Mister Transmission’s technicians are specialized experts, there is an understanding that the nature of the work is more valuable, due to its sensitivity. In short, anyone can swap your tires. Not anyone can properly service an automatic or manual transmission system.

Mister Transmission Franchisees are Transmission Specialists

Mister Transmission has prided itself on hiring transmission technology specialists for over 50 years. The business has changed drastically since the early days, but the underlying sentiment has remained the same: specialists to address one of the most important components of your vehicle. Because of the complexity and the importance of the transmission system to all vehicles, there’s no questioning the value of a transmission specialist versus a jack of all trades mechanic that knows a “thing or two” about how transmissions work.

As a result, it is common for mechanics to refer their transmission work to Mister Transmission, for the basic fact that transmission technicians live and breathe transmissions. They keep themselves educated on all the necessary technology developments having to do with transmissions, across multiple manufacturer models. If you think about all of the different car makes and models, you can imagine the level of knowledge required to become a transmission specialist.

Not only do our technicians have to know everything there is to know about transmissions, they also have to be up to speed with transmission technology, the computer systems that diagnose transmission problems, as well as, most importantly, how to properly service them.

Shifting ahead

Today, technology has taken over, and it’s changing the landscape of the transmission industry in Canada. With on-board computers, CVT’s and electric cars all coming into play, we will continue to remain the transmission and technology experts because of our ability to specialize. We are, very literally the masters of the trade, when it comes to transmission repair.

The automotive aftermarket is growing by 14.03 Billion or $207 per service in Canada. There are 23,006,222 cars on the road that will need to have transmission service over the next seven years. That’s a massive business opportunity.

What’s unique about Mister Transmission is the fact that, as an investment opportunity, we make it easy for you. We can provide all the training you require to become a specialist—you need not have prior experience in the automotive industry. We can help put the right people in place for you to have a smooth-running operation, that can help service the growing automotive aftermarket in need of transmission repair.

People with transmission problems aren’t looking for jack of all trades, they’re looking for masters in their industry. You can help bring them what they need.

If you like the idea of working for yourself but not by yourself, on top of the fact that we’ll provide the training then contact us to find out current franchise opportunities in your area. Our brand and our reputation are well established across Canada, so you’ll be starting your business on a solid foundation.

Dave
My transmission was acting up on my older Chev duramax/ Allison transmission. Luckily I was recommended to Mister transmission. Kris explained how the transmission works and why it could be happening. But would need diagnosis. Being a DIY person I appreciated the lesson in the complexity of the transmission but knew it was beyond my scope. He had me back on the road with minimum damage to my wallet. Was the best experience I have ever had at any mechanics. Will be recommending him to all my friends. Thanks again to the whole team at Mister Transmission.

Thanks Daryl and gang!! I wish the world was full of shops like this but it’s not and that is what makes them special. I chatted with them on the phone about a part I needed for my Subaru . They quoted me for the part and service. We made an appointment for the service as I had to drive from Whistler. The appointment was kept, the service was completed exactly as they quoted and the price for parts was exactly as quoted . Thanks again Mr Transmission , you made my life easier, this is what great service feels like.
