Happy Holidays!

This time of year customers are not only shopping for vehicles or accessories for themselves but also Christmas gifts for the car lover in their lives. There are many sites and lists out there describing great gift ideas for car lovers for the holidays. As customers are finishing up their last minute Christmas shopping, be sure you are prepared for the most wanted gifts on those lists.

Consumers are turning more and more to online shopping, and are increasingly more inclined to expect that dealerships will carry all of the accessories they might want, or at least be able to order them.

After vehicle purchase, as well as chats about parts and service, one of the most frequent requests coming into the Outsell Live Chat Center is about other general merchandise, everything from upgrading features on a customer’s vehicle to brand name T-shirts.

Common items on the car lover’s Christmas list this year are GPS navigation, satellite radio, warming seat covers, subscriptions to car magazines like TopGear, and portable vacuum cleaners for easy self-cleaning.

A recent article on About.com for Christmas Gift Ideas for Car Lovers suggested that shoppers should always talk to a live agent when ordering gifts online to ensure they get what they want.

Good luck with Christmas sales this week for those open regular business hours and have a happy holiday!
