The vehicle hire industry is one where many aspects of an experience can either go right or wrong. In order to provide a smooth and pleasing customer experience, many things have to go right.

Presentation is a key element, along with operational efficiency. Staff communication skills and interpersonal are hugely important in terms of the initial and the final stages of a transaction. Often there is a need to clearly and politely explain expectations and conditions, and gain agreement. The recommendation or add on products and services by sales staff also often have an enormous impact on business performance.

Mystery Shopping can be of enormous help to vehicle hire businesses that want to increase customer satisfaction while improving business performance.

Example businesses and situations
