Buying An Automotive Extended Service Contract

7

Should You Buy An Automotive Extended Service Contract?

The decision to purchase an extended service contract or mechanical break down policy as they are sometimes called is a decision that has many variables. Depending on the age of the vehicle, the usage, how long do you plan on keeping the vehicle for are just a few questions that need to be considered.

If you look online, some of these so called gurus who write scam pieces will tell youDont Buyits a scam. I whole heartily disagree with their opinions, I question if they have real world knowledge and experience to begin with. If they did, then I firmly believe their opinion would be other wise.

The scam comes when you are charged outrageous and inflated prices for an extended service contract, they are not cheap to begin with, but those who exasperate the cost are the ones who are taking advantage of unsuspecting consumers. Or perhaps even requiring you to purchase as a condition of buying the vehicle, you should never be forced to buy under any circumstances.

With automotive repair labor rates ranging easily up to $100.00 per hour or more, it doesnt take a huge repair to cost you major bucks, and with the electronics and technologies of todays automobiles, parts prices are equally as expensive.

During my 26 years in the automotive service industry, I can recall countless and numerous times where customers wished that they had purchased, and those that did were glad they made such a sound financial decision.

Consider the following examples of repair cost:

Air Conditioner Repairs can easily cost $1500.00 for compressor replacements.
Transmission Overhaul or Replacements–$3000.00
Water Pump replacements–$600.00
Power Steering Pumps and Steering Gears–$600-$2000.00

However, dont be mislead into believing a mechanical break down policy covers every nut and bolt on the vehicle, there are variables and different kinds of policies as well. Some cover seals and gaskets, wear and tear items, consequential damages etc and others dont. Be aware of what it does and does not cover before buying, this will save you a lot of grief in the event you have a mechanical failure.

It is a major decision, and one that requires weighing the advantages and disadvantages.
My personal and professional opinion is that if you are going to use the vehicle on a daily basis, you plan on keeping for 2 years or more after the original factory warranty has expired, then you should purchase the extra protection.

It is after all, like an insurance policy, you hope that you dont have to use it, but it will give you some peace of mind in the event that you have to have an expensive repair.

Types Of Automotive Lifts

19

Auto lifts can be found in most urban cities. Mechanics use them to raise vehicles for bottom access. In the past, most automotive lifts were of the in-ground type. These days, the majority of garages have surface-mounted lifts, which are bolted to the floor and utilize a hydraulic pump or a screw-type drive powered by an electric motor.

Here are the different types, available from garage equipment supply dealers:

In-Ground

This type of vehicle lift is assembled below the floor of the garage. It consists of one or more pistons, depending on the maximum weight capacity. Lifts with one or two pistons are used for compact, mid-sized and full-sized cars. Lifts with three or more pistons are used for larger vehicles, such as RV’s and busses.

Two-Post Surface Mounted Automotive Lifts

The most common automobile lift utilized today is called the “Two Post Surface-Mounted Lift.” On each column, there are lift arms. These are controlled hydraulically, electronically, or mechanically.

Multi-Post Runway Lift

The most common type of Multi-Post Runway lift is the four-post mounted lift, which is extensively used by oil change, transmission, and muffler service shops. Youll find this type of automotive lift in wheel alignment service stations as well. The car is driven onto the two runways and raised, exposing its underside.

Low/Mid Rise Frame Engaging

This type of auto lift engages the vehicles frame while lifting. There are two ways this type may operate. One way is scissor-style, moving straight up. Another is parallelogram-style, moving forward or backward, while raising or lowering. This type is commonly used for tire, brake, and wheel services, as well as auto body repair.

Drive-On Parallelogram Vehicle Lift

The Drive-On Parallelogram Lift is a surface-mounted auto lift. It has two runways where the wheels of the car should be placed. It has a lifting mechanism that moves the vehicle a short distance forward or backward while raising or lowering. The direction depends upon the way the lift is mounted.

Scissors

The Scissors Lift can either be of a fixed-pad type or a roll-on frame/underbody engaging type. It has a lifting mechanism thats similar to the parallelogram lift. The main difference is that the scissor lift goes up and down, on a straight vertical path.

Movable-Type Wheel Engaging Auto Lift

This type of auto lift is used for vehicles that are longer than conventional cars, such as buses and trucks. It consists of several lifting columns in sets of two, four, six, or more. Columns can be moved can can be connected with other columns so that their movements are synchronized.

Stuck On Auto Responder

12

Today at lunch I noticed that I was acting with my auto responder on. Maybe you have had a similar situation where you are amazed by your actions; wondering if it really you. You seem like you- but you realize that this version of you is acting on autopilot. That was exactly what happened at lunch today while discussing the asset division of our home with my almost ex-husband. I was not being mindful. I had to stop and ask myself, Who is running the show here? Am I actively pursuing my goal or am I running on auto responder?

My goal, to have a win-win situation with my ex-husband. I want to respect our accomplishments of the past and to feel respected in this situation forward. And of course, having a fair division of our properties equity. Setting a clear goal prior to our meeting was crucial. How would I be feeling when I was accomplishing these goals? I knew I wanted to feel respect, love and a sense of fairness. Establishing how I would be feeling when these goals were met gave me a sense of internal control. I could review my feeling periodically throughout the meeting and use them as an indication of my immediate success.

The problem, I was afraid, having never been in this situation before made me feel vulnerable. Feeling vulnerable kicked in my auto responder thinking. My auto responder in this situation went something like: you know people will take advantage of you and therefore you have to fight for what you want. Feeling a loss of control was starting to dictate my behavior. I could tell I was moving further and further away from what I wanted. I was running on auto responder and that rarely gets me what I want.

Steps to achieving my goal took courage. I had to be willing to make the additional effort to insure success. I have in the past known what to do; but looked the other way because sometimes being on auto responder is easier.
Here was the fix: Turn off the auto responder! Paying attention to what was happening and how I was feeling allowed me to be at choice. Achieving my goal would take immediate intentional intervention. Regain the internal control that I knew I could have. By turning off my auto responder it allowed me to reconnect with what I really wanted: respect, love and a sense of fairness. I began to feel at choice. Ah freedom of choice, really no greater gift.

Are you on auto responder? I want to hear about it.

Auto Text Messaging Systems Are Perfect For Internet Marketers

8

Body w/o Links:
There is no ignoring that Auto SMS Systems are now assuming their due place on the internet marketing arena. While global corporations have been making use of continuous and mass communication strategies for years, including 24/7 customer outreach via off-shoring and follow-the-sun approaches, Auto SMS marketing has put this tactic well into the reaches of small and medium organizations. Auto SMS systems are an effective way to quickly and cheaply distribute your marketing message to a sea of potential consumers.

SMS marketing is taking on an ever greater role in influencing consumer behaviour as more and more consumers use their mobile and smart devices to make purchasing decisions. SMS marketing has come a long way since the old internet marketing or email-based marketing approaches. While they have no-doubt been born out of internet marketing and web-based advertising, the popularity of SMS marketing and Auto SMS Systems has increased of late, thanks mainly to the demand for mobile smart devices. While many internet marketing strategies are ‘pull’ based, depending on consumers to initiate contact with a website, SMS marketing offers organizations a more proactive ‘push’ based approach to connect with its customers. Using quick response technologies, such as smart mobile devices, consumers are more prone to respond positively to a well designed SMS message and in the process commit to an ‘impulse buy’.

Like any technology however, Auto SMS Systems must be put through a vigorous testing process to ensure it meets your marketing needs. Using test message marketing could be one method to measure the effectiveness of an Auto SMS System before you subscribe to a service or buy a tool. Through use of a test message marketing strategy, one can measure the effect of the marketing campaign on a pilot group before mass broadcasting the SMS message. Many Auto SMS System providers and carriers permit either a handful or an unlimited number of test messages. Sending test messages to yourself through your Auto SMS System, and then verifying key aspects of the message is a good way to validate your SMS message marketing strategy.

Even “minor” issues with things like font sizes and colour can be highlighted with a well planned test message marketing strategy. Sometimes, Auto SMS System providers impose restrictions on the size of an SMS message. Such limitations may seem restrictive, but when used in conjunction with other complimentary SMS messages, can result in greatly determine consumer choices.

Similar to conventional phone, mail and even email marketing, Auto SMS Systems may also be subject to legislation. Industry overseers and mobile phone carriers have guidelines to determine fair use of SMS messages, including consumer choice to opt-in/out of an SMS marketing campaign. Failure to abide by these rules can lead to severe penalties or being barred from carrying out business over a carriers network.

Listening For The Problem Automotive Technician Diagnostics

20

Most car owners have a special relationship with their car in a similar way that pet owners have a special relationship with their pets. What I mean by this is that car owners usually know every single last one of their car’s performance, irregularities, quirks, and tendencies. While most brand new cars almost always start out running in a uniform way to other new cars of the same make and model, after a while, your car begins to development its own personality. This is probably caused by the way you drive, which reinforces the idea that there is a special relationship between a driver and his or her car.

Assuming one knows what to expect from their car, whenever something new or out of the ordinary happens, the driver knows something might be wrong. One of the surest telltale signs that something is wrong with your car is when you hear a noise that you are not familiar with. Cars make all sorts of noises, but a driver should be able to distinguish normal noises from new ones. Automotive technicians do not have the intimate knowledge of your car that you have, so when you come to them describing a new noise, it is up to their expertise to interpret it to locate the real problem.

Learning how to listen to customers describing problems with their cars, especially in terms of new noises, is a part of automotive technician training. The mechanic can’t expect the customer to be experts and use real, technical descriptions of the problems. Instead, there are several general noise descriptions that the mechanic should be ready to identify.

– Rattling, Clattering, and Banging: Mostly engine problems due to engine oil deficiencies or engine fuel problems.
– Loud Shots: If this occurs when the car starts, it is probably the engine backfiring due to problems with the ignition.
– Screeching, Wheezing: These sounds could be due to loose or damaged belts in the engine, like the drive belt or the fan belt.
– Whistling, Hissing: Likely the engine is overheating, check the cooling and exhaust systems.
– Popping, Sputtering: This could be from a dirty air filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced.
– Ticking, Rapid Clicking: There is probably a problem with the fuel transfer from the fuel pump to the carburetor and both should be checked.

Some noises indicate more serious problems than others, while other noises are common developments that happen to a car over time. Automotive training schools have many ways to train the mechanic to diagnose problems, using a combination of simulated customer descriptions and real workshop engines. In both cases, learning to listen is an efficient way to begin identifying the problem.

So trust your ears when hearing something new coming from your car, and trust the automotive technician to know what you’re talking about. Sound good?
