The all-important first impression can make or break your customer service experience. In fact, without a good first impression you may not have a customer at all. An impressive professional website and social media, clean lettered trucks, and sharp looking technicians will attract new customers, and instill confidence in your service after the job is completed. This confidence will be appreciated by your employees as well. Shoe covers and tool matts that once were nice extras are now EXPECTED by many customers today.
