During a recent meeting with a business person we got to discussing vehicles. They mentioned they were looking at changing their current vehicle and would I be able to help them with the process.
At this point I always ask if they know what they want as their new vehicle, but generally speaking people do not know. They have ideas what they might like, but no idea of specifics.
The vehicle is just for them so I didn’t need to focus on the levels of vehicles like I would for a business operating a number of vehicles. But the approach is similar either way.
I sent them away to draw up a list of what the vehicle HAS to have, what it would be NICE if it had and what id DOESN’T need.
Once we have that list we can start eliminating vehicles from the HUGE list of vehicles on the market. I also asked if they were badge concious, as some companies make great cars, but the badge on the front is not always readily accepted.
Start thinking about your list, what do you think is a definite must have?
Why not add it as a comment below so we can see what people think.
