THE DEALERSHIP DROP OFF
Updated: May 10, 2019
The wait room, the drop off, there is an easier way
I just experienced the pain of dropping my car to a dealership service centre. Ive heard the rumours but had no idea just how time consuming it would be. Annoyed that our insurance repairer had corrupted the computer yet pleased I had a valid purpose to step into my biggest competitors centre and experience the service they provide.
I expected the need to plan my morning around dropping the car off and since it was just diagnostics at this point (to await insurance approval) I anticipated a generous 1hr wait, knowing our mechanics diagnose within 20min 90% of the time. The abrupt staff informed me it could take all day, 9:30 is just a drop off not an appointment time. So I went on to join the the jam packed wait room lucky to find a seat.
20min later a courtesy bus arrives, again packed! Everyone needs to be dropped off now. Im given 2 options for a pick time from the driver, both are after school time pick up, which serves me no purpose my daughter is still in a car seat. What would i have done if this was my only car, what do others do? They made no further effort to resolve my issue just a blunt "I cant get you then". The lady next to me is getting a log book service and they told her it will be ready at 3pm her pick up is for 2pm. 6hrs to wait just for a service! Over an hour spent waiting at the centre!
I don't understand how people have the time to do this. They seem unbothered by the nuisance of it all or are they simply unaware. As I reflect on our current customers I know they are businesses with full schedules and little time, savvy mums, and professionals. The wait room also reflected this, a few in suits with their laptops open, all eagerly watching the clock. Yet totally unavoidable, have they not heard of a mobile mechanic.
