Which health care professional would you prefer?
- One who takes your vital signs, prescribes some medicine and boots you out the door; or
- One who takes time to ask questions, finds out what’s really going on with your overall health and then makes a diagnosis?
Good service providers are just like good doctors, they take time with their clients. For example, they know if a customer is a severe service driver. They then share this information with the motorist and explain why it’s important. A little chat time provides a number of "teachable moments" and helps educate the owner about the importance of performing scheduled automotive maintenance and needed repairs.
One of the best ways to create extra time with current and potential customers is with a car care event. Whether it’s held during National Car Care Month (April), Fall Car Care Month (October) or in between, vehicle check-up events and educational seminars let customers know that their service provider is interested in them and in their safety.
