Inter Cars SA. assumes that environmental protection is crucial when taking business decisions. We want to share this awareness with others. Realizing Bio Service Project, Inter Cars company collects garage waste in compliance with law regulations in force. The offer is designed for chain garages associated in one of Inter Cars garage chains, but also for independent garages.
The idea of the project is to convince and encourage garages to manage their waste in compliance with standards of the industry. Such action is a must in the time of high environmental awareness and with more and more demanding law regulations. Bio Service are also advantages for the garages, among others: strengthening brand image of the garage among more and more environmentally aware customers, distinction from another, competitive garages, not forgetting about increasing work safety.
Different kinds of waste are generated on a daily basis during standard work of a garage, lots of them are dangerous for the environment. Those can be, e.g.: used engine oil, oil filters, air filters, brake fluids and antifreeze, pressurized containers, cleaning agents, plastic elements, used light bulbs and electronic goods, batteries. Some of this waste has some value which can be recycled.
Besides the Bio Service programme, Inter Cars SA also presented to its customers a programme which makes it possible to obtain a trade discount for an old, used battery. When purchasing a battery and taking a confirmation of the purchase in the form of an invoice, one can get 200 IC Premia Plus points for each kilogram of a scrap battery. Points can be gathered not only for used batteries, but also for normal purchases and bonus purchases. The points influence additional discounts when purchasing from Inter Cars S.A. – it is enough to change the points to a purchase voucher to pay for goods in Inter Cars S.A. distribution chain.
The work of a garage involves gathering all kinds of scrap. It is a natural consequence of running this kind of activity and it cannot be avoided. No matter if gathered scrap needs to be recycled without any profits, or with a suitable remuneration - Inter Cars is trying to meet the customers' needs.
When it comes to scrap, the recycling of which must be paid for, we have prepared a special reimbursement. If the product was purchased from Inter Cars SA., we reimburse the cost of scrapping in the form of IC Premia points. This way the customer breaks even instead of loosing money. When it comes to "valuable" scrap, the conditions of our repurchase are of course negotiable and dependent on several factors. All this is done quickly, efficiently and profitably.
Every businessman and garage owner realizes the fact that used battery is not only scrap metal, but also unused funds. All this because goods of this type can be returned for money or other profits. Especially for this, Inter Cars SA. has prepared a programme which fits the matter perfectly.
Each kilogram of used battery scrap is rewarded with IC Premia points. 1 kilogram is 260 points which can later be exchanged for purchase vouchers, ensuring high trade discount. For instance, average 74Ah battery weights around 17 kilograms. This is exchanged for 4,420 points in the programme. The only formal condition to be met is having an account in IC Premia programme and purchase of a new battery confirmed with an invoice.
Just one litre of used oil is enough to make 5 million litres of water not possible to drink. That is why oil recycling is a process which is important not only because of the environment, but also - in compliance with the law regulations in force - it is a must.
Out of 350 tones of used, mineral oils yearly, a half of them are those which were used in vehicle engines. That is why we have decided to meet the needs of our customers by offering them collection of that dangerous waste. We are sure that using our services in this area will fully meet the expectations of our customers, which has already been proven by their comments.
At www.skuprdzeni.pl we have launched an innovative programme of repurchase used automotive parts (cores), which meet the criteria of accepting cores for remanufacturing by LAUBER company. The website is designed like an e-shop, where you can place your offer of selling the core, browsing current demand of LAUBER and offered prices for the cores.
The offerer is a seller and LAUBER is a customer. Currently we are purchasing cores in the following product groups: power steering racks, power steering pumps, brake calipers, axle shafts, alternators and starters. It is worth earning on something that cannot be used any more.
Trainings organized by our company are not only on broadening knowledge in automotive mechanics, exchange and operation rules of particular automotive elements and systems and performing practical garage tasks. Equally strong emphasis is placed on ecology.
We have prepared a number of trainings which are to improve ecological awareness. This includes not only knowledge on waste management and influence of waste on the environment, but also legal aspect of the matter. Some people do not realize how many duties and formal requirements they have to comply with to store this kind of waste properly. That is why we think that it is worth to make customers interested in it.More on szkolenia.intercars.com.pl
