How Professional Are Your Professionals?

Here at Don Graff Automotive we often implement a series of test calls to dealerships in order to assess how well they handle incoming sale’s inquires. These “mystery shopper” calls can tell us what the current aptitude of a dealership is and what problem areas we’ll need to focus upon when it comes to the consulting end of the services we provide.
