We encounter a lot of DIYers in our store who want us to look up parts for their vehicle, but only have a limited amount of info about their ride. They get irritated if we ask for a VIN or tell them to check their manual.


They want us to guess what they have, but later act irate when the part we order is incorrect. Any suggestions?
Just continue to be kind. If you are going to stay in the parts business or retail of any kind for that matter, there will always be those who take away from those who really deserve the attention. Just remember we are here to help and those who really appreciate us make up for those who don’t.
