ArchivesAutomotive Service Equipment | Car Lift Blog
While our customer base is mainly here in the good old USA, we also sell lifts and automotive service equipment to auto shops, home hobbyists, gear heads and weekend warriors all over the world. One location that we enjoy selling to is the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. Actually, the Bahamas were where Columbus first landed in 1492. There are actually more than 3000 islands that make up the Bahamas, but the most densly populated is the island of New Providence. This island features the capitol city of Nassau. Nassau has been a huge tourist attraction for many years.
This week’s customer is German Auto Works from the city of Nassau in the Bahamas. We had the opportunity to visit with them recently. They just opened a brand new auto shop that specializes in European automobiles.
They actually purchased several BendPak Lifts from us. They bought an XPR9 floorplate two post lift, and an XPR10A clearfloor two post lift. The clearfloor model is an asymmetric lift. The asymmetric style of lifts allows you to get your door opened wider after you have parked the car in between the posts. Most technicians prefer this style of lift these days. The added benefit of the BendPak design is that it can also position the auto symmetric as well. This lift is truly the best of both worlds, and is yet another example of why BendPak is the premier name in car lifts. The XPR9 is a floorplate model, meaning that it will fit under shorter ceiling heights.. No matter what you need, BendPak and ASEDeals.com have got you covered. If you have the opportunity to visit Nassau, Bahamas, we highly recommend it.
Social media is a huge marketing tool for any business these days. If you don’t have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other forms of social media, you’re missing out on a potential audience. ASEDeals does have a presence on the above mentioned sources, however we never had a listing on Google Plus, formerly know as Google Places.
Well, now we do. Google plus is the counterpart to Facebook. It has similar features and operates in much the same way. When google saw how popular Facebook became, and how rapidly it grew, they realized the potential there.
Merchants as well as individuals can post a listing there, showing their likes and dislikes, and promoting what’s going on with their day-to-day activities. Followers can learn about their favorite companies, new products, promotions and sales. It’s a win / win situation for everybody.
Automotive Service Equipment jumped on the bandwagon this week by listing a Google Plus page. You can check it out at the following link:
Go ahead and visit us there, and become a follower. You’ll find some interesting posts, as well as customer pictures and testimonials there. That’s our favorite. We love getting feedback from our customers.
