A successful auto body shop ensures that their customers have a quality experience. The moment customers walk into your shop, you’ll want to make a positive first impression to start building a relationship and hopefully encourage repeat and referral business.
Here are some ways that auto body shops can impress customers and boost the image of their shop, the quality of the repair process, and the overall customer experience:
1. Provide unique and personalized service. Give the customer a personable and welcoming greeting when they enter an auto body shop. Be enthusiastic, stand up, and shake the customer’s hand. Give a positive greeting like “Hi! How are you? How can we help you today?” and remember to smile.

Even small gestures of gratitude can mean a lot to veterans and military families
As an Air Force veteran – and the son of a disabled vet – I understand the sacrifices that serving our country can entail. That’s why I believe in finding ways – large and small – to demonstrate appreciation to military families and veterans.
I applaud, for example, the many shops that donate refurbished vehicles to active military families and veterans in need, and I appreciate efforts like 3M’s “Wounded Warriors” project. But don’t feel like taking on a big project is the only way you can help and honor those serving our nation. A friend of mine who is a hairstylist, for example, goes to Walter Reed Army Medical Center regularly to provide free haircuts to recovering soldiers. I think all of us should look for ways to say thanks.
Some of those opportunities may benefit your business as well. Every branch of the military has a recruitment website where you can look at resumes of people getting out of the military, or you can post a help wanted ad. When I was a shop owner, I used the Army Career and Alumni Program website to recruit employees from among those leaving the Army. After all, these folks are talented and disciplined and used to showing up on time, and deserve a chance at a new career after their service.
