It's a New Year, Time for New Gear


There's something about the start of a new year that makes people want to do better for themselves. Whether it's eating better, working out more, travelling more or spending more time with family, there is always something in our lives that we want to improve upon. For car guys like us, that resolution is usually improving our shop or man-cave. You know it's true.


We've received a lot of emails over the past year from our customers looking for advice and guidance on their shop or home garage setups, so much so that we've decided to put together a handy guide to help you make your shop equipment choices just a little bit easier.




So Many Options...


With so many different options in the world of automotive equipment, it can be a daunting experience to not only find the right products, but to find the right manufacturer as well. It is extremely important to find a brand you can trust; one that is reliable, has a good history and something many people don't consider: access to replacement parts if something goes wrong down the road. Many manufacturers can be researched online and consumers can usually get a good sense of product quality by reading or watching online reviews.

At Babco, we've been in the business for over 25 years and during that time have seen many products come and go. We've formed our own opinions on different brands and are well-versed in dealing with manufacturers directly - giving us a valuable insight into both a product's quality and post-purchase support. We hope that through our experiences, online reviews and diligent research, you will be able to make an informed decision when purchasing your next piece of automotive equipment to get you geared up for the new year.
