Educating and Empowering Women  At Our Car Care Clinic

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Sep 5, 2019 8:36:00 AM

Being the damsel in distress is not as glamorous as they portray it in the movies, this we know. 

You may have found yourself wishing the knight on the white horse was on his way to “save the day.” I think your mama probably set you straight on that one. ;)

Today we do have it pretty easy though. The cell phone,  AAA or roadside assistance, the GPS locator. It gives us a sense of safety and ease. I don’t want to burst your bubble here with a loud siren that screams, "you are fooling yourself." I like subtle. There are times and circumstances when you are really going to be stuck. With a little bit of knowledge you could turn a looming three hour wait and towing expense around.  Just by using the ol’ noggin’ and a little elbow grease, you can become your very own hero. 

 

Imagine if  you could turn your experience of  getting your vehicle repaired completely around.

Did you ever feel that when you are at the shop and the service guy is telling you what is needed to fix it that you slip into “blah blah I can’t hear you.” It’s like you are being spoken to in another language.

Many facilities don’t take the time to educate or to explain to their clients (male or female) what their vehicle needs and why. Being intimidated or overwhelmed can really turn a routine maintenance situation or an unexpected repair into a daunting experience. Being able to ask the right questions, and have a bit of knowledge can result in a much more pleasant encounter.  

Females spend an enormous amount of time in their vehicles. Juggling work, home, kids, sports and recreational time. It makes a lot of sense for you to have an understanding of what your vehicle needs. If your kids eyes are watery and they are sneezing, I bet you could probably narrow those symptoms down to something you recognize and treat or make the decision to go to the doctor.

About Our Women’s Auto Seminar

On October 19th, we will be hosting our Women’s Car Care Clinic. It is a great opportunity for you to come in for just a few hours and get an enormous amount of education about your vehicle. The clinic is free to our customers and starts at 2 PM, space is limited, so please reserve your seat in advance by calling 973-827-4047 or clicking here. As a special bonus, Lourdes of the Vine will be presenting a wine tasting and pairing following the seminar.

The seminar will be presented by our very own Colleen. She really runs the show over here at DeBoer's Auto. She doesn't just talk the talk (which she does eloquently) She is an absolute cracker jack in, on, above and below just about any vehicle. She’s going to teach you some very important information about your vehicle. You can expect to gain a bit more independence, time and money.

Getting your hands dirty isn’t such a bad thing

Bring in your fair tickets and get $10 off An oil change*

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Aug 1, 2019 9:45:10 AM

We love living, working, and raising our families in Sussex County. The NJ State Fair or The Sussex County Farm and Horse Show have been part of our history since what seems like forever.  It's not just something to do, it's the event of the year for local residents and business owners. There will be vendors coming from across the country to sell their products or provide their specialty culinary treats.

The rides, ferris wheel, the games and prizes. 4H competitions, all those animals, tractor pulls, pig racing, sausage & peppers, fried oreos, funnel cake and cotton candy. How could you possibly consider not going?

We know that going to the fair can add up to be a big expense. Maintenance on your vehicle can be easily justified to put off until later. We also know that putting off maintenance on your vehicle can lead to bigger headaches and bigger tickets down the road. We'd like to give you a couple extra bucks in your pocket for your trip to the fair.  

Bring your fair tickets when you come in for your oil change August 2th -9th and we'll give you $10 off you oil change. Schedule today at 973-827-4047 Schedule Appointment Now

*Offer valid on services scheduled and completed August 2-9th, 2019 only.
