Off Season Is The Time For Services , Repairs , and Upgrades. How Do You Keep People Engaged?

Just wondering what snowblower mechanics and small engine shops do to keep people engaged to have their snowblowers worked on in off season instead of majority that wait until last minute.

It's frustrating.

Every time it snows I am slammed with questions, emergency repair requests, service requests in late fall or all thru the winter.

Almost every breakdown I encounter is avoidable. if only people kept up on maintenance by having a service every 100 hours or so and not when it breaks down.

What do you do to have snowblower owners be more proactive???

Most people just put gas in their blower and run it till it breaks. Many don't even store it in a closed protected environment. Then they discard it and get another one. I see it all the time, and that is how I get all my free ones. You're preaching to the wall if you think you can get the average person to care for and maintain their equipment.

The few of us in this forum recognize the importance of it, but the average person just lets it become another throw away item to discard.

Better yet .....
