A customer walks in with the intention to buy a grill, a large bookshelf, or a loveseat. Sadly, their car doesn’t have the ability to bring it home that day. The customer is about to walk out the door empty-handed which would result in you losing the sale. For many small business owners, this is the reality they face when customers don’t have the appropriately sized vehicle they need to make a purchase. You, the owner, are left hoping they return with a larger van or truck.
Now, consider this scenario.
You’re a U-Haul dealer and have a U-Haul truck or cargo van out front. That same customer comes in and discovers their car is too small for the grill or furniture they wish to buy. You’re now able to offer your customers the U-Haul rental to help them get from your store to their place. Instead of losing the sale, you’ve kept it and both parties are happy. As a bonus, you even earn a commission from the rental. Win-win!
