At Sterling Auto Works, Inc in Manchester, our goal is to keep your car, truck, or SUV shifting and riding as smoothly as it did the day it rolled off the lot. A big part of that is the mounting hardware that keeps the moving parts in your drivetrain running smooth.
It doesn't matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, your tires are important. You probably know it’s time for a new set when the tread gets low - but how do you know if something else is wrong? Sterling Auto Works, Inc in Manchester, NH explains.
With the seasonal impacts and weather changes, a lot of wear can go into your wiper blades. Are your blades leaving behind streaks? Scraping noises when they rub against the windshield? Or the most obvious sign, is the blade fraying and cracking? It’s time to ask yourself; do I need new wiper blades? Sterling Auto Works, Inc in Manchester, NH is here to help.
Great Service- they took time to clearly explain things and brought me in the service area to show me what was wrong. - Andrew B. (5 star review on Google)
Sterling has been my go-to place for auto work for quite a while now (6+ years). They have always been good to me. They answer all my questions, are well-priced, and don’t try to sell me any unnecessary work. The people are nice and get the job done right.
1. When the dealership I bought my car from said I needed to bring in my car for a 30,000 mile maintenance check that included a fuel injection (about $300), I called up Sterling to ask if this was necessary; it rarely is and definitely wasn’t at 30,000 miles! Sterling went through the rest of the list with me so I knew what work actually needed to be done.
2. I went to the dealership for an inspection (free inspections for the life of your car if you buy it from them, so why not). They said my car was all set to go. About a month later my car starts making weird noises. I bring it to Sterling. I need new brake pads. I check the inspection paperwork, the dealership put down that I needed new brake pads (and other work) within the next month!! I specifically asked if there were any issues, and they said “no”. I have Sterling look at my car and they immediately know what needs to be fixed. Sterling Autoworks came to the rescue again!
3. Just this past Saturday my car started making weird noises. Brought it to a nearby auto shop (was too afraid to drive it further and it’s one of the few places open on the weekend). I need new front brakes (65,000+ miles, so expected). That shop gives me a quote. I call and leave a message for Sterling. Sterling opens at 7 on Monday. They had a quote for me by 8 and beat the other guy’s price by almost $100! And they can fit me in the next day!
Love these guys and HIGHLY recommend them! - Amber L. (5 star review on Googel)
There are certain moments where companies have a unique opportunity to go above and beyond and really impress their customers. Sometimes it's very subtle. Other times, it's glaringly obvious. But it's most important to recognize these opportunities quickly and do everything you can to capitalize on the moment and create raving fans. This week, I witnessed a company do just that. It's a story worth sharing and one that every business and sales professional can learn something from.
A few colleagues and I were preparing for an upcoming event we were holding on behalf of one of our clients. It was a fairly complex event that required a lot of materials and equipment to be transported to a location in southern New Hampshire. The timeline was tight, and there wasn't a lot of room for errors or delays.
As the vehicle being used to transport all of the event materials was being prepared, we realized we had a small problem. The battery was dead. We immediately got jumper cables and tried jumping it. No luck. We were at the point of panic until I thought about Sterling Auto Works (www.sterlingautomotive.net), the auto repair shop next door to our office. I had just visited the shop for the first time a few weeks ago for an inspection and was impressed with what I saw. I decided to give them a call.
I spoke to Tom Swiderski, one of the co-owners, and explained we were in a pinch and needed help. He said he'd send two of his mechanics over immediately to take a look at it. Within five minutes, the two mechanics were there trying to fix it. And of course, they are mechanics and I'm not, so they got it started quickly. From there, they determined the battery was shot and needed to be replaced.
They brought the car to their shop, ordered a new battery and had the car fixed and ready to roll within 45 minutes. I was impressed with how fast the work was done, but more impressed with how they dropped everything they were doing and came to help out as quickly as they did. It wasn't a huge job for them. They could have said they were too busy. But instead, they opted to step up and help us out.
While I was there, I also had an opportunity to meet Sue Ellen Ricciardi, the other co-owner of Sterling Auto Works. She was one of the mechanics working on our vehicle, and she and her team were dividing and conquering on getting the job done. I asked her about the business, and she said they've been doing this for over 27 years and love what they do. She said they maintain fleets of vehicles for some of the largest and most well-known companies in New Hampshire and have built their reputation by always doing the right thing for the customer. It's a classic example of how hard work and putting the customer first create a foundation for success.
The example of Sterling Auto Works is one worth using to spawn a discussion within your organization. What are those opportunities you have to really shine and impress your customers? What are those moments? Identify them and then figure out the best way to maximize that opportunity and create customers for life.
