Here’s where a simple phone call can pay nicely. We have three cars, and cars need oil changes.
With oil changes, we have a couple options - use a ‘quick-service’ oil change shop or take it into our regular mechanics at Car-X.
We take our cars to Car-X, scheduling our oil changes ahead of time. What we get for this ounce of planning is a bill for $18 instead of $40 or more.
On three cars, four times per year, that adds up to $264 in savings.
As for time, we schedule our oil changes for when we’re planning to be out running errands, so it’s no sweat.
While the oil is being changed, I typically clean out my inbox, update my calendar, and tinker with my task list. Oh, and when the car is ready, I don’t have to listen to anyone awkwardly or hurriedly cross-sell other services.
