When you are the type of person who spends a lot of time outdoors, you know the true value of your rugged outdoor equipment. Whether for chores or for recreation, your outdoor power equipment gets used consistently. These tough machines deserve the best care so that you can be sure that they will perform for you when you need them. Well, the best care for outdoor powersport vehicles is regular maintenance provided by an authorized dealer.
What Is An Authorized Dealer?
An authorized dealer is any store or business that sells high quality, brand name powersports equipment, landscaping equipment, or construction equipment in partnership with the manufacturer. Authorized dealers have a special relationship with the manufacturers which allows them to offer great pricing on equipment and parts and more. Authorized dealers are able to sell or obtain authorized parts to keep your motorcycle or powersports equipment running smoothly. Also, the technicians at an authorized dealer are educated and trained in the proper way to maintain the vehicles sold at the dealership. Powersports Company is an authorized dealer for the brands we offer.
8 Reasons Why You Need Your Powersports Vehicles & Power Equipment Serviced By an Authorized Dealer
When you do business with an authorized dealer, you’ll notice the difference from a typical store. There are many benefits to working with an authorized powersports dealer for all your purchasing and maintenance needs.
They have received training and certifications from manufacturers regarding how to service and repair these types of machines.
One of the reasons many stores choose to become authorized dealers of specialized equipment is because it allows their employees and technicians to receive expert training. This is what makes them such excellent businesses to service your powersport equipment, even if you didn’t buy it at that location. Authorized dealers are experts at repairing equipment, regular maintenance and care, and answering all of your warranty questions. When you take your equipment to an authorized dealer, you know that you are getting quality service and parts adding to the longevity of your purchase.
They know the service intervals.
You will never need to guess about when your equipment needs servicing when you become involved with an authorized dealer. They know exactly when your equipment’s parts need to be looked at for routine maintenance. Each make and model are a little different when it comes to service intervals, but an authorized dealer will know that and will alert you as to when the optimum time is to bring in your equipment. A typical repair shop won’t have the information needed from your warranty for your specific make and model.
They get genuine parts from the manufacturers.
The whole point of repair work is to extend the life of your equipment. So why would you want anything less than the quality of genuine manufacturer replacement parts? Off-brand parts often do not perform as well as genuine parts, so you may find yourself at the repair shop more frequently. While this is great for the repair shop, it's not so great for you. Genuine manufacturer parts ordered and installed by an authorized dealer's technician will always fit your make and model correctly, making your ride feel brand new.
They usually have spare parts in stock so that they can make faster repairs.
Since authorized dealers are constantly in contact with manufacturers, it makes sense that many of them carry genuine parts as a matter of course. Typically, the most frequently requested parts will be kept on hand, so you won't have to wait for the dealer to order the part. This saves time and gets you back to work or leisure quickly.
They can work under active manufacturer warranties.
An authorized dealer will always be able to tell you what is covered by your manufacturer warranty. This will keep you on track for your power equipment maintenance schedule as well as any important manufacturer information. It’s an easy way to keep your equipment in tip-top shape. Other than contacting the manufacturer directly, an authorized dealer will be your best point of knowledge regarding your warranty.
They are advised about product recalls.
Recalls sometimes happen. While it is a minor inconvenience, learning about a recall and taking your machine in for an inspection will prolong its life. Authorized dealers will be notified immediately regarding a manufacturer recall and in turn notify all of the owners. A typical repair company may not hear about the recall right away, thus putting you or your powersport equipment in danger.
They are extremely knowledgeable and familiar with the machines.
Isn’t it wonderful to speak to someone who understands the way in which your motorcycle, tractor, or ATV works? It's especially important when your equipment starts to malfunction. Well, you can have these types of conversations with a technician at an authorized dealer. Building a relationship with a trusted authorized dealer is important, and once you have a dialogue started, you’ll learn a lot more about your equipment. They can answer all your questions, tell you about similar models, or help you troubleshoot your problems. And if needed, they can even help you decide what new model to purchase.
They can recognize and help you avoid safety issues.
If a tech isn’t familiar with your particular make and model, they really can’t tell you if there are any hidden safety issues. Technicians at an authorized dealer are so well trained in maintaining and repairing your specific piece of equipment that they will be able to tell you how you can better maintain the integrity of your powersport vehicle at home. They will see the ways in which your particular equipment is being worn and clue you in on ways to mitigate this damage. This not only keeps you safe while riding, but this will also ensure that you’ll have this machine for many years.
