What Women Want- in a Good Garage
The unfortunate reputation women, in general have when it comes to all things that have to do with cars is they are supposed not to know anything?. People tend to think that women buy a car on account of whether the colour looks good on her or if the upholstery is nice. The truth is, while there are a few who may be that way, many
women are more mechanically inclined than you think. Here are a few things that women want- in a Good Garage.
1. Positive Feedback about the garage concerned
Women are born shoppers for the most part. And while a few know exactly what they want and buy it at first sight, most prefer to window shop. Asking around and getting feedback from people who have used the Car Garage is one of the most reliable ways to gauge how good (or bad) the services are. You don’t expect the manager or sales person who works for the Good Garage to say anything negative, do you? So getting recommendations or cautionary tales is the best way to weed out the good from the bad.
2. Professionalism as soon as you enter the Good Garage
If a woman’s reputation is she knows nothing about cars, the reputation of mechanics leans towards the seedy and lecherous who think a woman’s face is below her neck. By doing an inquiry in person and getting a sense of the people she will be dealing with, a woman will know that the garage is not meant for her if they make her uncomfortable with their behavior or comments. There is a place and time to be flirty. A Good Garage is not one of them.
3. Handling Complaints
While this may come together with the feedback, it is important for women to find out how complaints are handled. Women are meticulous in general, so if something is not up to snuff and she wants it repaired or redone, will the garage be reasonable or bully her until she gives up. Ask around about how the garage you are looking into handles complaints. The after service response can be a very telling sign if the garage gives good service because this is where you find out how they handle back jobs and complaints. Check also how many complaints they get on the average. Too many complaints is a signal of poor service.
4. Affiliations (is the garage a member of an association)
A woman wants to know that a Good Garage is backed by more than word of mouth. If she knows that a garage has affiliations with companies that provide support and training for them, she will rest easier in choosing them.
5. Guarantees(ask the Good Garage about their guarantee scheme)
While there are no guarantees in life, a garage should have a guarantee on their parts and/or services. If they are as good as they make themselves out to be, they should not hesitate to give a guarantee on the work.
So if a woman finds all of this in one garage, she will most likely choose that one.
