We are all familiar with the advantages of shopping online from the comfort of your home during the holiday season. No crowds to contend with, checkout lines to wait in or congested parking lots to navigate. In theory, there could be no better to way shop, right? Buying locally can offer many different benefits, so let's take a look it's just a few reasons why it's the best choice this holiday season.
The Dark Side of Online Shopping
There is a less glamorous side to this equation. Shipping delays, items damaged during transit or products not meeting your expectations based on images and descriptions found online are all real possibilities. Now you must incur return shipping costs, additional delays and potentially canceled orders, amounting to a compromised shopping experience.
And once you realize there is a discrepancy or an issue with the product, it can feel impossible to return the item and have faith that the replacement is the right fit. Questions can arise like:
● How will you get your money back?
● Can the item be returned?
● And what kind of quality are the products you're ordering?
Supporting Local Businesses Means Never Wondering if the Product is Right
So let us add the element of installation, such as would be required with many of the automotive solutions we sell. You purchased an amazing subwoofer on eBay and came in to have it installed – only to discover that the equipment you bought is not compatible with the amplifier currently in your vehicle. Or perhaps the remote entry package you found at a Discount Online Warehouse arrives missing the database interface module, which is designed to work with specific vehicles – and yours is not on that list.
The truth is, some products aren't the best to order online. So, whether it's electronic gadgets or alarm systems, they might look good in their description, but when they arrive they might not be compatible, leaving you feeling frustrated.
Small Businesses Offer In-Person Experiences
When you make your purchase locally at Mobile Installation Services, you can touch it, see it, hear it and be assured that it will work exactly as advertised. There are no surprises, no delays and no disappointments. Our knowledge and experience in automotive entertainment, security, remote start and installation make it worth your drive to see us. And this is because our business is invested in the products and services we sell. This means we will work harder to provide a higher level of service and product for our customers than you will find in an online store.
Shopping Local Means Supporting Your Community
Small businesses are some of the largest employers on a national level, and since the 1970s, 65% of new jobs are provided by them. It's also noted that the owners of most local companies provide a large amount of support for nonprofit groups and can receive as much as 350% more from a local than non-local business.
What this means is, you are supporting neighbors, family, and friends when you shop locally. Small business owners invest their lives into their companies because they believe in what they are selling, and by supporting them, you are helping them take care of their employees and their families.
Your Support Helps Small Businesses Persevere Through Challenges
Shopping locally is even more imperative now with 2021 bringing higher shipping costs, disruptions, and shortages for many small business owners, and 2022 has been exacerbated through problems with the supply chains. This means that small business owners are feeling the pinch of trying to provide high-quality products for their customers. Providing you with exceptional products and services is our priority and we believe in our companies values.
We take the time necessary with every client to provide a shopping experience better than any other you can have. In purchasing from us, you are also supporting a local business. We live, work and reinvest in these communities, take pride in the quality of our work and create relationships with our customers that endure for years. ‘Click-To-Cart’ online retailers simply cannot furnish this level of personal attention.
