Courtesy Fleet: Expert Tips For Clients
Important Questions to Ask Yourself When Buying an Automobile:
During our long history, we’ve found a tried and true set of questions that have worked best for thousands of our satisfied customers:
- WHAT WILL THE VEHICLE TRANSPORT?
If you just need to get yourself to client meetings, a subcompact car might do the job. If you’re a delivery type of business, you probably need a truck or a van.
- WILL MORE THAN ONE DRIVER USE THE VEHICLE?
If your company vehicle will be shared by several employees, consider one that’s easy to operate.
- WILL CUSTOMERS SEE YOUR VEHICLE?
If so, what you drive up in will say something important about your company. First impressions are everything in the business world. You wouldn’t want your employee arriving at a job site in an old truck covered in scratches and dents. That tells people that you don’t have a big enough customer base to pay for adequate equipment. It might make them wonder if you are even the right choice for the job.
- DO YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE VEHICLE?
If your business needs more than one vehicle, consider whether you should stick to one make and model or purchase entirely different vehicle types. Buying several of one type of vehicle may improve your buying power and allow you to take advantage of volume incentives.
Getting your trade-in appraised.
Getting an objective appraisal ensures you get the greatest dollar amount for your trade-in. That’s why our dealership has a professional trade-in appraisal process on site to save you the time and money of finding an appraisal service. You can have your trade-in appraised as soon as it arrives at the dealership. Additionally, you can use this time to speak with your sales consultant about what you do and do not like about your present vehicle, so he or she can help you find the new vehicle that is right for you. With this information in hand, your sales consultant can avoid looking at vehicles that do not fit your needs and make maximum use of your precious time with us.
Where should I get my vehicle(s) serviced?
We are required by the manufacturer to maintain Factory-Trained Technicians who know the product better than any third party quick-service operation. They will issue bulletins to dealers concerning product updates and/or modifications that can benefit you. The dealer’s staff of commercial service advisers access the manufacturer’s database every time you come in for service to assure that all the latest modifications and engineering changes are available to you at no charge. Today’s vehicles are expensive and technically very sophisticated. We feel our staff is your best choice to maintain your vehicle.
Proper and Timely Maintenance Preserves Your Warranty:
Your new vehicle is protected by a factory warranty. However, the manufacturer does have the right to deny warranty coverage if you fail to service your vehicle at the factory-recommended mileage intervals. We will maintain your vehicle and keep copies of service records, adhering to the factory-recommended service guidelines. Additional service to your vehicle may be recommended by our commercial service advisers.
