So here is the first free service tip for the month of March. I was in a dealership today that discounts service at half price on Saturdays after 2 p.m. for cars at least 5 years old. WHAT?!?!? Half priced service on a Saturday in this day and age?
It was mind blowing for a second then the more I thought about it the more sense it made. This store was having a problem filling up all their service bays on Saturday afternoons. So they went after what every dealership would want a little more of, older vehicles for bigger ticket repairs.
It was a great idea. Especially for smaller to medium size stores that have trouble filling up service departments on Saturdays. The customers get to see massive discounts on a day of the week that is the most convenient to service and dealerships get more costly repairs performed on older model cars.
