Hiring a Cleaning Company vs. DIY: Which Is More Cost-Effective for Your Business?

Customer Spotlight: Gary Tilley, Property Manager

It may be unfair, but we often judge people who are messy. For instance, if you’re interviewing somebody for a job interview, and they have a mustard stain on their shirt and haven’t combed their hair, you’re probably going to think they aren’t the best person for this position. For all you know, a hot dog vendor attacked your candidate just before the interview, and got mustard on his or her outfit, but you’re not likely to consider that, are you? Nope, you’re going to think, “I’m not hiring this joker.”

Unfair, but true – we form opinions when we see an unkempt mess.

True, it’s smart for all businesses to strive to be clean. But it’s especially smart business for a car dealership, for a variety of reasons. For starters, you’re selling a product that is expensive, maybe the most expensive item somebody has after a house, and anything can go wrong in the selling process.
