It’s not enough to replace a client’s convertible soft top. You also need to teach them how to care for it. It’s the best way to build credibility and trust, as well as to separate yourself from competitors.
To help you do that, we collaborated with The Haartz Corporation to create a series of free care guides.
They provide simple, but invaluable, tips that every convertible car owner should follow to keep their tops in pristine condition.
“Proper care is a key component to ensure your vehicle’s original convertible topping material or your OEM-fabric replacement top material last for 10 years or longer,” said Phil Hollenbeck, sales manager, automotive exteriors at Haartz. “We publish care guides to show drivers how to get the most of out of their tops, to ensure they enjoy top-down cruising for years to come.”
Simply download, print and leave these care guides in the cars you repair. Clients will thank you for it.
