   Several years ago Courtesy Ford developed a new philoso-
phy to make its service department more efficient and attrac-
tive to customers: Keep it open all night.
   The change had a dramatic impact on the dealership’s
ability to service client’s vehicles in a timely manner, and it
allowed Courtesy to expand its business without making a
physical expansion to the building.
   Now customers can drop a vehicle off after work, and often it
is waiting for them when they arrive the following morning.
   Courtesy Ford now opens at 7 a.m. Monday and remains
                           .
open until 7 p.m. Friday On Saturdays, the service department
is open until 5 p.m.
   Almost immediately, customers began taking advantage
of this service, and service orders rose to about 85 per day
from about 60, according to Courtesy’s service manager Kevin
Aud.
   To staff the night shift, Courtesy hired six new technicians,
bringing the total to 19. Because it is inconvenient for custom-
ers to get a service call in the middle of the night, the parts and
service advisors are trained to take special care to ensure the
right parts are in place to get the job done overnight.
   In addition to providing overnight service for its traditional
customers, the night shift has allowed Courtesy to attract busi-
nesses that need service done on their vehicle fleet, but can’t
                                                    .
afford to be without their trucks during the day That service
has been attractive to several local businesses, including a
major parcel delivery service.
   To learn more about Courtesy Ford’s overnight service, con-
tact the dealership at courtesyford.com or 455-2435. Courtesy
Ford is located at 2724 Brewerton Road in Mattydale.
