How To Sell Add On Services

Recommended Posts

I'd like other quick lubes opinion in regards to selling add on services with a basic oil change, since as well all know we rarely make a profit off just changing the oil and filter.

We currently are doing well with selling cabin and engine air filters simply by taking it out and showing the customer so they themselves can "make the sale" by just looking at the condition its in.

But how do you approach selling oil or chemical additives( engine stop leak, oil treatment, octane boosters)? Is it worth it to have in stock or will they just be another product collecting dust on the shelves? How would you price these items? And have you had any complaints from customers?

 

What other add on services do other quick lube and oil change shops have in mind?

 

 

 

 

Thanks for your thoughts.

      We sell service, not products. Yes, we sell water pumps, brake pads and air filters. And yes, those are products. But it’s the service we sell, the customer experience, which lives on well beyond the customer leaves your shop.

      Think of it this way; when you buy a watch, or a new cell phone, the experience of what you purchase continues after the sale. When we replace a customer’s water pump or air filter, there is very little about those items that lives on beyond the sale.

      But, what does live on is the customer experience. The better the experience, the more likely the customer will return to you.  So focus on the customer experience, not the products you install.

      My shop is in a very rural area in South Carolina.  We are mainly a new tire dealer and we have been here for over 40 years.  We repair and replace everything from hand truck tires all the way up to large radial rear tractor tires.  We do alignments, brakes, front end suspension work, batteries, and oil changes.  We have been successful at what we do, but I see the effects of the internet and additional competition from car dealers, big box, etc. on tires and rims.  
      I took over from my dad about 3 years ago and I added oil changes and focused more on the alignment and front end suspension work, which has been great.  I have a great alignment and suspension guy.  My background is more finance and the business side of things as opposed to the mechanical side of things.
      I would like to get into doing more for our customers.  I want to get some opinions on what types of services we should offer, and how I can find a decent general maintenance tech.  I don't think that we should jump full on into engine and transmission work, but I could see doing things like master cylinders, ac work, fuel filters, general maintenance, etc.   
      I am going to have a pretty steep learning curve on this, so any pointers you guys could provide will be appreciated.

      Hello all,
       
      After two years, Our shop would like to start servicing TPMS services lights preset on most vehicles we encounter at our facility. I can't even imagine how much income we lost from not thinking about this earlier.
       
       
      What scanners do you use to scan\flash TPMS sensors and how much do you charge?
       
       
      Thanks in advance for your thoughts and opinions.
       
      Nick
