Are You Getting the Best Value on Services at the Dealership?

This article was written to provide some information about whether the products and services offered at a dealership represented the best value. We are using the word value specifically because there is much more than price that goes into whether a product or service is a good value. We plan to discuss two components of value below and how working with an independent company might provide you with a better value than using the dealership.

  1. Quality of the Service - It really doesn't matter what the price happens to be if you are not satisfied with the end result. When you make a busying decision, what you are looking for is the best overall result for the amount of money you are willing to pay. In many cases, an equivalent result will cost you more at a dealership. Likewise, you can often get a superior result by using an independent and spending the same money you would at the dealership. While not true in all circumstances, you can sometimes get a better result and spend less money by dealing with an independent shop.

    The best advice is to check pricing, view completed jobs and compare. Make sure you are getting the best outcome for what you are prepared to spend. At Clear Bra Ohio, we seek to provide the best overall value for our clients by  providing them an attention to detail at every price point that is second to none.
  2. Quality of the Products Used - In many cases, the quality of the products used does not become apparent for weeks, months or even years. What appeared to be a great value fades over time. The products that are used can play a huge part in this. The quality of the products that we can use for clear bra, paint corrections and paint coatings vary dramatically. Often, the results all look ok on the day of the install. What happens with the products of lower quality is that they tend to degrade in either looks or performance much faster than the higher quality choices.

    Because the dealership often does not specify exact products being used, it is hard to compare precisely what level of quality you might be be getting. The best advice is to ask what products are being used on your vehicle. At Clear Bra Ohio, we have thoroughly tested every product that we offer to ensure we are providing the greatest overall quality at each price level.

We hope that this helps you differentiate between whether to have services like clear bra or paint coatings / sealants done at a dealership or independent shop. Ask questions. Know what you are paying for. We want to educate our potential customers as we feel that the more informed they become, the better value they will realize they receive at Clear Bra Ohio.
