    Hi Eveyone

    How many use a car care club program, and how does work. Are there instructions on how to implemnt the program and keep trak of cost’s.

    I have never done this because it seems to be giving away the farm.

    Hi Wayne,

    We’ve used the Cinron (modified to our specs) since about 2005. shows how ours


    We’ve sold 500 plus since then. Many Clients have purchased several,

    at least one has bought five.

    It’s been a great relationship builder, nice cash flow boost when sold

    and has proven to lead to higher avg RO’s for us.

    I have been using the car care club for about 2 years and I am very happy with it. It works best on your top customers it really brings the average Invoice up.Bottom feeders just use all the free stuff.Now I only offer to it to my better customers,it also keeps them from going any where else. When you sign up Ron has a sales letter for you to send out to your customers.after seeing my results I would recommend you just send out to your top 20% to begin with.I sold 100 in the first 2 months.The way I keep track of it,when I sell one it goes under labor with no one attached to it.then when they use it I give the discount under labor. when I looked at the difference in labor profit its about 1% lower with car care club this year,but my gross profit parts and labor is up $3000 per month this year.You can also just raise your labor rate to off set it.
