Do you know why some car dealerships seem to shine when you walk out on the showroom floor? Do you know why some dealership service departments are clutter-free with spotless workshop floors? They are either using a commercial cleaning company or have very well-trained in-house staff.
Smart car dealership owners understand the value of first impressions when working with customers and they know that appearances are important. It is so important that many car dealerships invest a great deal of money in commercial cleaning to ensure that customers are ‘WOW’ed when they walk through the door.
When a showroom floor is so meticulously clean that you can see the reflection of the car of your dreams, when the parking lot is free of trash and debris, customers believe that you are serious about what you do, that you take pride in your business, and care about them. It’s a win-win situation for you, your staff, and your customers.
How Commercial Cleaning Benefits You
As the owner or manager of a car dealership, you receive many benefits from hiring a commercial cleaning service to manage your dealership’s cleaning. Improved employee morale, lowered maintenance costs, improved customer perceptions, and increased productivity are all benefits associated with a clean and tidy dealership. These and other benefits associated with a clean place of business add up to higher sales volume and a better reputation for your dealership.
In the long run, hiring a commercial cleaning company can actually save you money. Outsourcing your cleaning to professionals frees up your staff to focus on their actual jobs of selling and servicing cars, managing day-to-day operations, and chasing leads. In addition, you are no longer required to purchase and store cleaning chemicals and supplies as these will be provided by your cleaning company. A quality commercial cleaning company will also offer restroom and breakroom supply replenishment services which can save you even more.
How Commercial Cleaning Benefits Your Staff
There are hundreds of studies indicating that there is a strong relationship between employee morale and workplace cleanliness. A clean workplace makes for a happier, more productive workforce where employees take pride in their jobs and are more prone to speak highly of your dealership.
There are also health benefits associated with a clean and sanitary dealership. Fewer sick days, healthier employees and a safer work environment are all benefits that a clean dealership provides to its employees. Not to mention the fact that they do not have to worry about being assigned restroom duty during their shift.
How Commercial Cleaning Benefits Your Customer
Shopping for a car can be a stressful endeavor and for many people, it ranks right up there with going to the dentist. Ensuring that your customers’ shopping experience is a positive one means providing an inviting and safe environment. Outsourcing your cleaning to a professional contractor helps ensure that customers feel comfortable when entering your dealership.
Most customers shop around when deciding on a new car. This means that they may visit several dealerships on a given day and while they may be looking at prices, trade-in values, and financing options, the impression that they have regarding your physical plant can often be a deciding factor. Don’t let the dealer down the road outshine your facility.
