It’s a fact that’s undeniable; today’s vehicles are integrated with more electronics and creature comforts than ever before. Where doing an installation of a radio and speakers in the driveway may have been plausible on classic vehicles of the past, modern vehicles have numerous electronic systems that require expertise in both product selection and installation. In addition, deep knowledge of the vehicle’s electronics and industry-recommended integration practices are also a requirement to do the work with a strong expectation of a great result. This is what we do at Progressive Audio. We are experts. We are specialists.
What is the specialist difference?
There are plenty of places that offer technology products and consumer electronics for your car. Large national retailers, online merchants and locally-owned specialist retailers like us at Progressive Audio are the main choices. The difference between these choices is distinct, especially if you value service and knowledge. When you purchase from a specialist retailer, you gain the benefit of all our 100 years of collective staff knowledge and experience that is often absent in a large big box store or through an anonymous online purchase. We don’t sell groceries, furniture, clothing, books or purses; we only sell the best automotive electronics that satisfy our expectations to deliver you the finest user experience possible. Whether it’s an audio system upgrade, hands-free calling, a security system, reverse camera or any other electronic item we install to enhance your driving experience, we ensure our expertise is an integral part of the complete solution we offer you. In short, we don’t just sell pieces and parts; we create individualized solutions specifically for you. And because we’re specialists, we know it’s going to work as we promise it will. It’s peace-of-mind. In a nutshell, that’s a big benefit of dealing with a specialist.
Consider the benefits of a specialist
Shopping online and in large national retailers lacks a number of benefits that the locally-owned specialist retailer offers. Big stores lack the person-to-person understanding that a specialist retailer brings to the table, especially when it’s your own car being enhanced. How many big box stores go out with you to look over your car or have demonstration vehicles on site for your evaluation? Instead of having any staff members that truly specialize, you may find shopping at the big box stores to be more like clerks who will conduct a transaction with limited knowledge or expertise on what you’re really buying. Consider that the added importance of functionality and fit with your specific vehicle is a significant factor and you begin to see why doing business with a locally-owned specialist greatly enhances the probability of a great experience.
With regard to online purchases, the sheer magnitude of considerations to ensure exactly what you think you want or need versus what the outcome may really be makes automotive electronics requiring expert installation one of the things online shopping does not completely fulfill. With no real person-to-person demonstration and support, or lacking a specific methodology to ensure expert installation, it’s somewhat of a roll of the dice. Often the significant value brought by the specialist retailer is that we know the brands we offer inside and out. We know what delivers the best performance, the most appropriate fit and the greatest longevity to ensure you have an excellent experience. This is why we’re called specialists. With a specialist, you’re never on your own and that’s a significant benefit.
