Auto Repair Shop Texting – a powerful tool

Gain more value from your COSTAR system with the implementation of SMS reminders.

While local and small businesses sometimes feel they’ll be creating more work for themselves – or are nervous to dive into this world – you should know texting (SMS) is one of the easiest ways to modernise your customer experience and attract and retain customers.

Convenience for your customer base is no longer an option – it’s an expectation. With the ever-changing digital landscape, technology is a must in providing convenience at every stage of your customers buying journey. As a service provider, your customers need to show up – missed appointments cost you time and money.

How can texting improve your auto shop?

Appointment Reminders

With the advancement of COSTAR SMSing, you can easily send personalised texts to your customers. COSTAR allows you to quickly and professionally contact your customers, eliminating no shows and reminding them about their upcoming service or appointment. Remove the burden of scrambling to call everyone the day before; now you can easily send reminder texts to your customers days or weeks in advance – time friendly and effective!

This initiative is helpful for you and your customers and can dramatically reduce the number of no-shows.

Start communicating with your customers and develop a win-win relationship.
