The truth underneath the hood

I spent the day today “googling” this topic. It seems like every garage from the fly by nights to the well-established dealerships offer what they claim to be “convenient service”. Most service centres offer anything from an 18-30 minute turn-over time (most makes and models) for your oil change as long as you show up on time to their inconvenient location and no problems are discovered with your vehicle (which oddly enough, there always seem to be).
Let me tell you what goes on behind the closed door of the service floor. Once you’re in the door and the oil is drained from your vehicle, some apprentice proceeds to tear apart your car and point out what they perceive as life-threatening flaws and make recommendations that they must be repaired. This is why mechanics have always had the reputation of being scammers. Believe me, this is true. I have worked as a technician in local garages and high-end import dealerships all my working life and I’m here to tell you that it is impossible to do a proper 20-point inspection and oil change in 18 minutes, so we usually just inspect the components that can make us money. You see most mechanics are paid according to the work they sell, not how long they are punched in at work.

I am here to revolutionize the future of the auto industry. Here at Kambio Inc. we not only employ technicians with top-notch training, but also the highest moral ethics. Unlike other garages, we don’t get paid according to how much money we can get out of the customer but rather, on how well we satisfy our customers. After all, shouldn’t that be the goal of every business, “to satisfy its customers”? What sets us apart from other service centres is that there is no need to waste 3 hrs of your day at the dealership waiting for your car to be serviced. We will come and service your car at home, work, or even the golf course.

If you are like me who has a regular 9-5 job followed by responsibilities at home – picking up the kids, taking them to recreational activities, homework, dinner, baths, stories, pets, and on and on, why would you not choose this option and have your vehicle serviced while you are doing something you enjoy doing instead of waiting. Seems like a no-brainer to me! Contact Kambio today to schedule your hassle-free maintenance service. You won’t be sorry you did.
