Autumn

100_0580“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” – Jim Bishop

Autumn is a great time to remind your customers to get their vehicles ready for the colder months ahead.  Many stayed home this year instead of taking a vacation, so they might not have considered it necessary to get their vehicle in tip-top shape at that time.  This is a good opportunity for auto repair shops to get their customers back in the shop for needed services and repairs so you can keep them safe and those they share the road with!

If we can help you get the word out, just let us know!

Wishing you a wonderful Autumn!

Like most people, my husband and I are always in a hurry.  We do, of course, make a point of being consistent about getting our vehicles serviced on a timely basis.  5,000 miles ago my husband was told his transmission fluid was getting dirty and needed to be flushed (exchanged) on the next visit.

He took his car in for its oil change and service last week.  Imagine his surprise when after the service was complete they told him the oil was changed, the air filter was still clean, all the fluids were in great shape and topped off and they specifically pointed out that the transmission fluid was very clean.

He looked at me and raised his eyebrows…saying with no words, “You have got to be kidding me!”

My recommendations from this experience to all technicians, service advisors and shop owners…

  • Never recommend a service that doesn’t need to be performed.
  • If you do recommend a service, at least write it down and remember to mention it on the customer’s next visit. This needs to be a habit!My husband’s trust was very bruised.   Hmmmmm…
