The Many Benefits of Customer Loyalty at D&K Automotive Repair

The Many Benefits of Customer Loyalty at D&K Automotive Repair

We have a customer story we want to share with the world. One of our most loyal customers, Isaac Moses, always brings his vehicles to D&K Automotive Repair. Recently, he brought in two of his vehicles for major repair, which, we admit, had a hefty price tag.   When Isaac started coming to our shop, we issued him a Customer Loyalty Card, like we do for all of our customers. This Customer Loyalty Card gives each customer 2% back on all services to be used on future services at D&K Automotive Repair.   Now that you understand some background, here’s the review Isaac gave us:     When we received this review, we paid attention. First, we love Isaac and value his feedback. Though it never hurts to ask, it is not possible for us to reduce our hourly rate for volume discounts. But it made us think about listening to our customers and doing what we can to meet their requests.   As a result, we reminded that Isaac that he was racking up 2% back wit ... read more

Decorating the Wedding Getaway Car

Wedding season is upon us! If you’re a guest or attendant to a wedding this season, we have some creative ideas for how to decorate the newlywed’s getaway car. After all, the new couple already has a lot on their plate when it comes to planning the big day- take the opportunity to plan one small piece that is fun and memorable for everyone involved. Here’s our top favorite, D&K Automotive technician approved to decorate a wedding exit car.   Classic Cans Probably the most iconic choice in wedding car decoration is to attach cans to the back of the car. You can add to this happy tradition by decorating the cans yourself, picking out ribbon in the couples wedding color, or getting empty cans from foods the couple likes (perhaps the groom is a chili guy???) to add that extra personal touch.   Balloons As long as the balloons have enough string to fly well behind the car, they won’t block too much visibility. Consider getting balloons that have th ... read more
