Percentage Calls

I was told of 10 auto calls received 8 are for lockouts and three for key generation. Of 10 key generation calls 7 can be done via calling in code, 2 via non ignition codes located on car, and only 1 require you to remove ignition for code. Does this sound reasonable? Thanks, William

Not true your #'s are OFF out of ten calls 8 + 3 =11

The rest may be correct

ok, in MY neck of the woods.. as far as key generation..considering how FEW old cars are around.. take the 'remove ign lock' out of the picture.. of the 10, then make 7 can be ;called in', AND they REQUIRE in over half the cases special programming equipment.. (IE- Ford, Chrysler, SOME foreign) and the other 3 will make the owner pucker SERIOUS time.. ( starting at a grand and UP)

as for the 8 lockouts...that can vary with area,, some places it would be 50/50.. others, it would be 9 lockouts and 1 key gen.

8 + 3 = 11.

A lot depends on the market you are in. I have streaks of old car calls where I need to impression keys or otherwise make the keys followed by a string of calls where it is all late model stuff where codes are available.

I have observed that there are no real constants in theis business, only a great variety of problems to be solved. If you were to create a business plan based on one given set of parameters it is a safe bet that those would not hold true for long.

Seems to add up to eleven, not ten!

Not if one of the lockouts gets handled by generating a key... :-)
