Roadside Assistance Entrepreneurs... Because if you don't own the business you're just running for gas money!

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Business Owners: Does your customer service start and stop at the front door? Don’t forget the parking lot!

Scenario 1: Your customer had a great dining experience at your restaurant. The food was great and the service was exceptional. They leave a big tip! Five minutes later they return, having locked their keys in their car and ask for help. You search for a locksmith online and call the “$15 service” listing on top. A few days later you see your newest review online, “I got ripped off by locksmith they recommended.” Turns out the “locksmith” you called was a scam artist who charged them $315… in YOUR parking lot!

Before I started MrQuickPick Lock and Road Service, I was a manager and long time employee of Marriott. Always trying to stay a step ahead of the competition, we’d spend thousands of dollars and countless hours “thinking outside of the box”, putting together special teams and projects to “impress the guest” at whatever cost. Marriott has always been one of the best in the business when it comes to customer service and these strategies and thought processes are more important now than ever in this new world of instant online reviews. So I ask you… does your customer service include the parking lot? Let me explain…
One of the more frustrating things that can happen to YOUR customers in YOUR parking lot is for them to have an issue with their vehicle, and it probably happens more often than you realize: a dead battery, flat tire, keys locked inside. Some of your customers may already have a roadside assistance plan and will call for service on their own… no problem (or opportunity) there. On the other hand, many of your customers have opted out of these often-expensive plans, especially the younger “Millennials” who say they do not want to pay for something they may never need.
These customers will more than likely make their way back into your establishment, now looking for assistance with something that probably has nothing to do with your business; something out of the norm for your employees and their well-rehearsed book of “standard operating procedures.” Tempted to hand them a phone book (what’s a phone book?) or help them search online for assistance? Roll the dice and take a chance that the company you call is legitimate, insured, professional and represents the same customer service standards you’ve spent so much time, training and money perfecting?
Scenario 2: Your customers had a great shopping experience in your new store. The employees were attentive and the service was exceptional. One customer even thanks you as they leave. Five minutes later they return, having locked their keys in their car and ask for help. You immediately call (or text) your local MrQuickPick service provider. You already know they will arrive quickly and offer the same customer service as that of you and your employees. This potentially negative experience soon turns positive and they share a recommendation of your establishment with their friends on social media.
It is YOUR parking lot after all and that is YOUR customer. Nothing worse than your hard work and your customer's great experience suddenly ruined by something you left to chance in your own parking lot. On the contrary, a good leader knows that this is simply another opportunity to shine; a chance to show everyone else what “outside the box” thinking really looks like! Why not be prepared for the inevitable by having your local MrQuickPick on speed dial.
We offer a special discounted rate just for having us as your preferred “fast and friendly” service provider. Registration is free and no parking lot is too large or small! Email info@mrquickpick.com to register your company and receive local service dispatch number and special discounted rate info.

Uber Drivers are only Five Steps away from a Six-figure income!

If you’re a ride-share driver for Uber or Lyft … Congratulations! You are among the ranks of thousands of home-based business owners across the country. While some drivers are just looking for a little extra spending money, others are relying on this gig as their primary source of income and many more aspire to quit their “regular” job and work from home full time. What’s stopping you? You’re already using your personal vehicle, insurance, gas and cell phone, not to mention your time waiting for the next job. Why not take your business volume and revenue to a completely different level…
Check out these five simple steps to turning that part-time gig into a full blown business:
  1. Buy a gas can. That’s right, go to Wal-Mart or Kmart and spend $8 on a 2.5 gallon gas can and carry it the trunk of your car. You have now added “gas delivery” to your service offerings.
  1. Buy jumper cables. Once again, you can pick up a good set of cables locally. I would suggest heavy-duty,  25’ long cables or even a jump box. Now you’ve added “battery jump start” service.
  1. Buy a 4-way lug wrench ($10), a small 2.5 ton floor jack ($40), wheel chocks ($5) and gloves. This will take just a little more time and sweat equity but now you’ve added “tire change” service.
  1. Buy a car lockout kit ($60). What? You don’t know how to unlock a car… No problem! It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s very lucrative to add to your offerings. Simple to learn and unregulated in most states. With some basic tools and a little practice you’ve now added “car unlocking” service.
  1. Brand your home-based business inexpensively with MrQuickPick®. Now that Google search has replaced phone-book ads, branding is more important than ever! Sign up with the major auto clubs and “do business as” MrQuickPick® to provide jump starts, gas delivery, tire changes and auto lockouts for their members in your area. Advertise as MrQuickPick® locally, online and B2B, to make additional revenue providing residential and commercial services. We’ll even promote your business location nationally with a customized page on our MrQuickPick® website. For more information call 1-800-391-7842 or visit http://www.MrQuickPick.com.
You’re already using your own car, insurance and cell phone, driving around town waiting for the next job. Let us help you take your home-based business to the next level! Contact us today for more details.  MrQuickPick® is proudly rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Uber and Lyft Drivers... Extra Services = Extra Money!

Attention ride-share drivers: Why not substantially increase the money you are currently making by adding a few simple services? That’s right… throw in a set of jumper cables and now you’re making extra money by helping people with a dead battery. Carry a gas can and now you’re ready to delivery fuel to a stranded motorist… for a fee! And don’t get me started on the quick and easy cash one can make unlocking cars in your spare time. I was very early in suggesting “ride-share” drivers add this simple service offering to their repertoire... almost two years ago (http://ridesharelocksmith.blogspot.com/).
Both "ride-sharing" and "light-duty" roadside assistance actually compliment each other and these services can be provided in the same manner, by the same driver with minimal tools and training. Auto clubs will typically pay you $25+ for providing their services and most can be accomplished in less time than the average ride-share trip. Bonus: Auto club members never throw up in your car or sucker punch you in the back of the head! Just food for thought. 
You’re already growing a nice business, working from home, using your own car, insurance and cell phone, driving around town waiting for the next job. Join forces with MrQuickPick to add “light-duty” roadside assistance to your service offerings and watch your home-based business really start to soar!
