Recently I purchased myself a brand new 2016 BMW M3. Its a very nice car I love it. It has the right amount of luxury and sport all in one car. I love that this car has plenty of power to help get me to my destination in a timely fashion.
It is springtime here in Grand Junction, Colorado, which means it’s almost back to 90-degree weather. The other day I was sitting in work traffic on the way home when I noticed how uncomfortable the heat rays were on my skin. My car wasn’t really that warm due to me blasting AC, but when the sun isn’t blocked and is just blazing on your skin you can still feel that heat. Plus I’ve heard its not that good for your skin. So I decided to have my windows tinted. Not only did I want my windows tinted for protection, but to add a nice sleek look to my new BMW as well.
So I started my search on the web for the right company to work with. I looked for those who had good reviews, prices, and seemed like they offered great service. Now if you haven’t noticed by now, I like to do my research before making any type of decision. I believe in finding the best of the best for a good price. I don’t just look for the cheapest thing out there because I do believe in you get what you pay for, but I try look for something that’s in the median. So of course I ran a thorough search and came across multiple companies before finding the right one.
When I finally found the right company I knew they were good just form the phone call. Their name was Grand Junction Window Tinting. I have to hand it to these guys they have the makings of a great company that will out last all of its competitors. When I came across their website (gjtinting.com) I was taken aback by how informative it was compared to others. By informative I mean it wasn’t just, “we do tinting x,y, and z, boom there”. They really take their time to explain their services and benefits of their product. Which really prevented me form asking a whole lot of questions over the phone. The design of it was simple, easy to navigate, but not too plain. It didn’t look like it was super spammy and tacky of a website.
I contacted them to receive a price quote and a very nice enthusiastic lady answered the phone, so that’s always a good sign. I forgot her name, but she provided great answers to my questions and was very helpful. She also contacted me the day prior to follow up on my appointment and as a reminder. Not only did they have great service online and over the phone, but in person as well. Their technicians were all so very nice to me and took time to chat with me about my car. They also took time to explain to me how they were going to tint my car, showing me what type of tint they planned on using, and also offered many examples of what different shades of tint looked like, so I could figure out how dark I wanted to go.
While waiting for my car to be tinted I had a chance to chat with the owner of Grand Junction Window tinting. I explained to him my goal of becoming a business owner myself. Told him about the research I have put into learning about other companies and what has made them successful or not successful. I asked him if they are always slammed with customers and how does he maintain such a great company that offers the best service? He said that every week they’re slammed. People usually have to call weeks in advance and that I was lucky to have slipped through on a weeks notice. As for his company’s service, he told me he is very strict when it comes to hiring. He makes sure that his men are experienced, have great worth ethic, and know how to treat customers with respect. Really pushing the idea that every customer comes first , staying in touch with their customers before their appointment and even following up after is key.
I could tell from the start that this company was something special. Unlike many of the other window tinting companies in Grand Junction, Grand Junction Window tinting had two locations and both going very strong. This company is well on its way to dominating the market. What really set them apart form their competitors is how great their service was, they were easy to work with, showed a lot of care and respect towards their customers. Like I have mentioned before, in business you want to be willing to go that extra mile and find something that makes you different from your competitors. It may not be something big, but it still makes a difference. Some day I hope to open a business and make it as great as this one.
