Attention instructors: Is your automotive class interested in providing vehicle owners in your community an opportunity to have their vehicles inspected?
National Car Care Month in April and Fall Car Care Month in October are great opportunities to improve your school’s community relationships, while at the same time, growing your student’s work skills.
There is no better time than now to start planning your 2012 events. Whether you host a vehicle check event on site at your school or you get involved in an expanded, multi-faced event in your community, you have a tremendous opportunity to increase the goodwill and trust with your future customer base.
Log onto www.carcareindustry.com where you can watch an inspection video, download a Car Care inspection press release to distribute in your community and gather tips on hosting an event.
National Car Care Month is a nationwide effort to focus motorists’ attention on the importance of vehicle care and maintenance. During Car Care Month, many repair facilities and auto parts stores join local businesses, civic groups, radio stations and others to sponsor free vehicle check-ups.
The inspections include checking fluid levels, tires, lights and other system components. After the inspection is completed, volunteers review any discrepancies with the motorist and provide information about proper vehicle maintenance and repair. The goal of check lanes is to help motorists learn how to “Be Car Care Aware.”
The event at your school also can be used as a fund-raiser, as donations from vehicle owners who participate in the vehicle inspection process can be used for automotive lab and classroom equipment.
Note: No actual vehicle work is performed by the students, rather, the event is for future professional
technicians to identify the opportunities for vehicle owners to improve their vehicle’s gas mileage, enhance performance, increase safety and reduce emissions.
