The roundtable session provided attendees with great ideas they would be able to implement at each of their dealerships.  Some of these ideas included hiring non-commission sales people to lessen the negotiation pressure consumers have long been accustom to when making a new vehicle purchase to the recruiting of college graduates erasing the image of the “used-car salesman” perception.

Longest Family Owned Chevrolet Dealership Selects DeliveryMaxx to provide Social Media Marketing and Online Reputation Management

Jupiter Chevrolet practices what they preach when they state “their customers are like family.”  They should know.  The Garland dealership has been owned and operated by the same family for over 85 years providing great service and the highest quality Chevrolet new and pre-owned vehicles to Dallas/Fort Worth customers.

In September 1925 Ben C. Jackson, grandfather of Karen Matetich’s, opened the doors as Jackson-Olinger Chevrolet which was located just off the square in downtown Garland, Texas.  In 1937, Jackson bought out Mr. Olinger and the dealership became known as Jackson Chevrolet.

By 1950, Elmer Newman (Mrs. Matetich's father) joined Mr. Jackson in the family business, and in 1956, the company moved to a new location on Garland Road expanding to a 40,000 square feet facility.  In February of 1977, Mike Matetich Sr. came on board and moved the dealership to Jupiter Chevrolet’s present building.
Through the years, other family members joined the team.  Mike Matetich Jr. came on board in June of 1994 and is now the General Manager.  Ashley Bradford, (Mike Matetich SR.'s daughter) joined the family business in February of 1999 as Jupiter Chevrolet’s Public Relations Manager, and Billy Bradford, (Mr. Matetich's son-in-law) became the Pre-Owned Director.

The Matetich's take an active role every day building strong relationships between their customers and Jupiter Chevrolet.  As a family business, Jupiter Chevrolet understands how important family is, and they also consider all of their very satisfied customers’ part of the family.  The customer comes first and they implement that attitude throughout the entire new vehicle and pre-owned vehicle ownership. 

To increase the effectiveness of communication to their customers; Jupiter Chevrolet has selected DeliveryMaxx to develop a digital media solution for the dealership.  “Our customers will be able to share their experiences before they leave the dealership which will allow us to make sure they are receiving the best experience in car buying a customer could have” states, Ron Ofner, Jupiter Chevrolet’s General Manager.

“To be associated with a dealership that has been a staple of North Texas is very exciting for DeliveryMaxx.  Jupiter Chevrolet has a great story to tell, and we look forward to helping them share that story with the world.” says, Josh Deaton, CEO of DeliveryMaxx.

Most of us approach the process (and boy can it be a process!) of car buying with the same level of enthusiasm we bring to having major surgery.  As stressful as this can sometimes be, it can quickly get even crazier if you ever decide to use it as a “quality” learning experience for your kid or any other first time car buyer who hasn’t yet had the pleasure of experiencing the mental and verbal gymnastics that have become so much a part of the car buying process for so many of us.

Folks, since this little exercise is all about getting the salesperson to work for you, here are some things to keep in mind that will make your next car buying expedition less stressful and more focused and effective for all concerned.  Let’s face it, you’re there in the first place because you’re looking for a car and any dealership worthy of the name would like to earn your business.

There’s a very good reason dealership sales people are frequently called “Sales Consultants”; the conscientious ones are product experts that will answer any questions you may have about their product line.  Not only that, but if they’ve been trained properly, during your initial meeting they will have some key questions for you (hence “Consultants”); this isn’t because they are nosey by nature – they are trying to gather enough information to be of some help to you in your quest for a new chariot.  SO DON’T BE STINGY WITH THE INFO!  The following is a sampling of the kind of information that an astute sales person will find useful in helping you pick out the right vehicle for your needs.  

1. Are you replacing a vehicle?
2. How will you be using the vehicle (commuting, business, etc.)? 

3. If commuting, is fuel efficiency or comfort most important to you?
4. How important is performance?
5. Do you prefer sedans or coupes?
6. Light colors or dark colors?
7. Is resale value important to you when considering a purchase?
8. If applicable, how often do you trade vehicles?
9. Once you’ve picked out a vehicle are you planning to finance it?  Does the safety rating of any vehicle you intend to purchase play a part in your decision making process?
10. What features would you like the vehicle you ultimately select to have?

The decision to tap into the skills and expertise of a trained professional who earns his or her living by how effectively they help to take the stress out of the car buying process and make it even a little bit fun and exciting ought to rank right next to remembering to buckle-up before heading out to work in the morning!

Notice that I haven’t even mentioned payments yet – why, because until you have picked out a vehicle that will satisfy your needs, pricing really has no need to come up. Any major purchase must certainly satisfy your needs as you have defined them before you even consider whether or not you can afford them. If you’ve made a partner of your sales consultant early in the process then there is less likelihood of a mismatch between “needs” and “wants” when it comes time to see what the new vehicle you’ve fallen in love with will cost.

Best to consider a good sales consultant your very own personal shopper for the time you are visiting the dealer.  Happy hunting!
