warranty calls
« on: April 26, 2015, 09:52:22 PM »
How do you guys handle calls when they are set up from a third party? I have one appliance call center that tells the customer when I will be at their house. I have had the dispatching company telling my service lady we see you have an opening on this day at this time. I know they can't see what I have scheduled. They want short turn around time but our customers come first.

I get the info on the customer and call them asap to schedule an appointment.  Most of the time, the customer is happy that we are accommodating their needs in a timely manner.

If they can't wait, then I just send them back to the warranty company to find someone else.  That's all.

If you run your own business, it is important that you are doing the scheduling.

I have a major customer, and once in a while, they presume to tell one of their tenants that I'll be there at such and such a time.  Whenever that is done, I correct them and tell them that I can be there at some other time.  Tactfully, of course.  But I am not going to be run ragged, or pressured on my schedule for someone else. 

If I allowed that, I'd soon find my own business to be intolerable.

Which is not to say that I am not as accommodating as I can be, but please.


Would you buy a extended warranty?
