Winter Boat Workshops at Boating Dealerships

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Wed, Jan 30, 2019 @ 09:45 AM

At the start of this new year, recreational boating is currently limited to viewing frozen silhouettes in millions of backyards across America. While consumers and boating dealerships long for warmer temperatures, both parties can benefit from winter boat workshops over the next few months.

Boats sustain considerable exposure from the elements while they are in the water, so boating dealerships can provide a first line of defense by offering workshops that focus on the essentials. These monthly workshops should start in January or February and continue through May. The breadth of these DIY projects can consume large chunks of time, so getting an early start is critical.

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Fri, Nov 16, 2018 @ 06:45 AM

Cash, check or charge, there are only three ways to guarantee the payment of delivered building supplies to residential or commercial job sites.

The meshed processes entail having an adequate vehicle to transport the supplies, a safe way to load and unload them, enough manpower, and of course, the means to make and accept payments. Read More

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Tue, Sep 18, 2018 @ 07:44 AM

Buena Vista Auto Works repairs a customer's vehicle, accepts a check payment for the services, and sends the happy motorist on his way. All is well until the next morning when the driver discovers that he wrote the check for $4,000 instead of $400, the correct amount.
