All companies need reviews, whether good or bad. It helps them to gauge whether they are offering a good service to their customers. Also, if they are failing in one area they are made aware of it and can then remedy the situation, whether that means changing a company policy or in some cases retraining of staff.
If a company receives a lot of bad reviews this can have a negative effect on future business as potential new customers tend to “do their homework” on line, before they go out to look at a vehicle they wish to purchase.
On the flip side a lot of positive reviews can actually generate new business and even people going back again and verbal recommendations to family and friends.
You want to be able to choose your vehicle with confidence and when buying ensuring the vehicles paperwork is in order and the vehicle is clean.

How do you decide which car to buy? Read reviews, arrange for a test drive (you might try it and decide you don’t like the layout of the dials, or find that you think there is a ‘blind spot’ that you don’t like. What do you need your vehicle to be able to do for your lifestyle? Do you need to be able to load up the back? Or are you transporting children to and from activities? What is the fuel consumption like? In this era of trying to be proactive with regard to emissions could you consider a hybrid or even an electric car? How much money do you want to spend? Or would you consider leasing? Don’t forget you have to allow for running costs, car tax and insurance, servicing and depreciation. Write all of this down and be honest, no point in buying a car that you can’t afford to run!
The idea of franchising came from the United States around the middle of the 19th century by Isaac Singer -he invented the sewing machine it was his way to distribute his sewing machines over huge areas without him having set up new shops in these different areas himself. Some of the best-known names on the high street are franchises e.g. McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Burgher King etc.
According to Freestyle cafe: A Franchise is a type of license that a party (the franchisee) acquires to allow them to have access to a business’s (the franchisor – in this case Ford, Seat, Mazda and Kia amongst others), proprietary knowledge, processes and trademarks in order to allow the party to sell a product or provide a service under the business’s name.
In exchange for gaining the franchise, the franchisee usually pays the franchisor an initial start-up and annual licensing fees. What this means is that if the dealer were to offer a substandard service e.g. regarding a Kia make of vehicle, and if this was an ongoing trend then the Franchisor can take the license away and they would not be able to trade under the Kia badge. It goes without saying, it is of great importance to read through dealer reviews before selecting the car(s) of choice.
The advantage of ensuring that you give good service is the back-up you receive from the Franchisor, you buy parts through them meaning that the vehicles you are maintaining are getting branded parts usually at a better price than having to go out into the marketplace to source the parts. In a lot of cases the Franchisor will offer training programmes for your staff ensuring that your staff are up to date with the latest technological advances, which in turn gives confidence to the member of staff and to the customers when they see certificates on the wall showing the advancement of the staff.
