Replacing Your Worn-out or Outdated Equipment

Posted on May 1, 2008 by Wayne Blanchard

 

 

ALTHOUGH MANY operators dread the thought of having to replace any part of their limousines, it goes with owning one. Various parts of the vehicle fail or become worn due to the excessive use of our business. However, many of the parts and supplies you need simply can’t be purchased at your local auto parts store. A/C parts, blower motors, and condenser cores are just a few of the parts you’ll end up needing. “A limousine isn’t like your typical family sedan,” says Johney Walker, sales manager for Infinite Innovations in Springfield, Mo. “Many of the replacement parts are specially made and therefore difficult to locate.”  

 

Infinite Innovations is one of only a few companies that sell limousine replacement parts. Among those parts is a full line of electronics including flat-screen TVs, exterior coach lights, and fiber-optic lighting systems. “When a system fails, operators generally use that as an excuse to upgrade their current systems,” Walker says. “A good example is switching out an old tube TV for a new flat screen.”

 

When it comes to some of the more popular replacement or add-on systems, Walker says there are a few standout items:

 

> Flat-screen TVs

> LED-style coach lights

> Low amp/temp fiber-optic light boxes

> DVD players

> Rear view back-up cameras and monitors

 

These new systems use the latest in technology and take far less current than their predecessors, so they help your limousine’s alternators last much longer. That’s excellent news for any limousine operator.
