What is your idea of the "perfect" equipment dealer. What should he stock at a minimum; what hours; what extra services should he offer; should the "professional get different treatment than the "homeowner". List everything you would like to see your dealer do, or offer, to make him the perfect dealer for your needs. Here are some of my ideas. 1. open at 7:00AM 2. demos on everything he sells 3. Loaner machine when yours is in for warranty work 4. Good inventory of basic parts like filters and belts 5. Willingness to get parts in "next day" 6. Will open shop after hrs, or on weekends for real "emergency" parts needs for the commercial guys. 7. LCO- owned equipment repaired on a priority basis ahead of homwowner stuff 8. Fair prices on equipment, but not necessarily the lowest price. These are just a few that I have thought of. What are your thoughts?
