Some darn funny stuff.

I took my car to a jiffy-lube recently, just for an oil change. They tried to get me to do about 800.00 worth of work to it.

When I hemmed and hawed, like I'd EVER let them do more than change my oil, the price dropped and all of a sudden there was a discount of parts.

They try all the dang time.

Still funny though.

As a technician, I find this funny. As a Shop manager, it is appalling. I am both, defined as a "working manager". To top it off, I am a manager of a Midas shop.

I know some shops do these scams, some thrive on over selling. I don't and will fire anyone doing such. I also have another shop, motorcycles to be exact. In neither does over selling occur. I would rather earn money for products and services the right way than lose valuable customers because they spent too much money on repairs. Note how I phrased that.

Most customers don't know they were scammed. They only know they spent too much at that shop and will seek others next time.

My theory is that if it is not of dire emergency, skip it. Make the customer know what to expect and always SHOW the customer what is wrong, not just tell them. I also show them the part{s} removed and replaced and offer to give the parts to the customer. This builds customer confidence and customer base.

If a part, or parts, are required, I show the customer what and explain why, how much and options at the customers' disposal. Let them decide from there, without pressure.

Sadly, not all repair facilities agree with theory. But, it has kept me employed all my life.

Okay, this should be a lesson to all FATHERS of girls.
Make sure your daughters are well informed. Have them out there when you change the oil, or change a flat. Teach them just as you would a son.
I am one of three girls, we learned to do our own maint. not only so we could be independent, but our Parents were "thrifty".
It has served me well over the years. It is hard to scam the informed.

I was in shock as soon as they said the halogen fluid and my eyes popped on changing the tires over!!! that was fantastic, relieved to find it was a show... thoght it may have ended with daddy lol.

True though girls should get to know about their cars, we all did and I haven't even passed my test lol but whilst I was learning I had to know (had a poo car)
thanks for cheering me up
