Customers who are working on a vehicle will need various automotive clips and fasteners to properly complete the project. Keeping a varied selection of automotive clips in stock is necessary so you can meet the needs of any customer for any project.
Keep in mind that while some customers will need a small number of automotive clips and fasteners to complete their automotive project, others will need a large number. Consider these tips to help you accommodate every customer:
1. Offer automotive fasteners individually to accommodate customers who are completing a small project.
2. Stock auto fasteners for hoses and tubes for customers who are replacing systems with hoses and tubes.
3. Appeal to customers doing large or specialty projects with auto fastener kits.
Sell individual vehicle fastenersCustomers who are replacing parts on a vehicle will need automotive clips and fasteners. Offering these items individually will allow you to serve customers who need to replace only one or two vehicle fasteners over the course of their project. You should make sure that you stock a good selection of various clips, pins, screws, bolts and trim retainers so that you can accommodate any customer's needs.
Offer automotive fasteners for tubes and hosesWhen replacing tubing or hoses, such as a radiator hose, customers will usually need to replace the hose clamps. Most hose and tube automotive fasteners are universal. Selling different types and sizes of automotive fasteners for hoses and tubes will ensure that you can meet the needs of these customers.
Stock automotive fastener kitsFor customers who are restoring a vehicle or completely overhauling it, automotive fastener kits may be ideal. These kits accommodate a certain project or sometimes a certain model vehicle. You should keep automotive fastener kits for the most popular projects and vehicles in your area in stock at all times.
- Sell tools such as screwdrivers and pliers that customers need to properly attach their automotive clips and fasteners.
