Buzz Words Don't Fly At Guaranty

Is it just me or does it seem like time goes by faster everyday? I remember hearing “time flies when you’re having fun!” as a kid, but now time seems to fly no matter what kind of time we’re having. To keep up we use abbreviations and acronyms and boil subjects down to slogans and catch phrases. There is little time for deep analysis and no time for real introspection. Empty phrases are bandied about, company culture, customer experience, competitive advantage, etc. without ever defining them. Like an increasing segment of our modern world these phrases sound robust, but have very little substance as mere talking points. It is easy to talk about creating a “competitive advantage” over the competition through a “company culture” that emphasizes the “customer experience”, but if there is no action plan these are now just corporate buzz words. Here is a bit of a duh moment, but a company with a clear idea of what the customer experience they want to foster is, beginning the moment a guest walks into the business through the conclusion of their visit, provides a better experience for both that customer and for the employees. It is easy for an employee to live up to standards that are clear, and those clear standards give each guest a predictable and hopefully enjoyable “customer experience”.

Not all places we do business with understand. That’s why we usually do business with them once. Instituting change is hard. But often what is much harder, is talking about or even acknowledging the need for it. It is far too easy to stay in the “this is how we have always done it” lane and become comfortable in complacency.

Luckily at Guaranty Chevrolet and RV Super Centers our leadership has valued the message behind company culture and customer experience since well before they became the phrases de jour. From day one, in late October 1966, Guaranty has understood that the customer experience is the result of the company culture. Our founder, Herb Nill, was famous for drumming up business wherever he went. He was quick with a business card for potential customers and was known to leave more than one note on vehicles he thought could use an upgrade. Nothing novel in the practice, businesses have been trying to increase their business since the history of businesses, but it is what happens once you’re here that was ahead of it’s time. Even in the hay day of the white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a car in every driveway Guaranty embraced it’s small town roots and it’s family business principles. In today’s hurly burly world these practices seem refreshing and nostalgic, not in an old fashioned or outdated way, but in an it’s just the right way to do things way. We Do Whatever’s Right! after all.

I have worked in a multitude of retail and wholesale capacities in the RV industry over the past twenty five years and each of the companies I have worked for have all had some version of the “the customer is always right/we treat our customers right" slogan. They have all proudly touted this philosophy until the customer being right got expensive, then the customer was no longer right. Not so in my six years of experience at Guaranty. While I have seen several examples where doing what’s right after something goes awry became expensive I am most impressed with Guaranty’s desire to do what’s right before things have a chance to turn south. That’s a convoluted way of saying it’s just as important, if not more, to do what is right when things are good as it is when they are not. That’s a big reason why the fancy word cloud you see here just reinforces my fellow employee’s appreciation for our guests and our desire to treat them to a world class experience. It is a computer algorithm thingy that takes the most common words from our multiple reviews and creates this collage with them.



While some word origins are related to our business; truck, motorhome, Chevrolet, RV, purchase etc. many words come from customers descriptions of their experiences with Guaranty. The low hanging fruit is obviously words like experience and service, but if you look a little closer you see words that resonate a little more. Words like pleasant, helpful, and awesome speak to a customer experience we should all be proud of. Dig one layer deeper and you begin to see words like love, and family, and maybe the most telling you begin to see the names of the wonderful people who work here and strive to make your customer experience world class by doing whatever is right.

Company culture also directly influences the retention of quality employees and the fact that there are dozens of Guaranty Employees who have enjoyed twenty plus year careers here speaks volumes about our culture. Another indicator is the multiple family members, both sibling and multigenerational, that work in the various departments found across our dealerships. Our company culture is reflective of the values of our ownership, which started with Herb Nill and are now carried on by his sons. Hard work, honest dealings, and treating customers right have served Guaranty well and have kept us ahead of our time in creating a “competitive advantage” over the competition through a “company culture” that emphasizes the “customer experience”. Don’t worry, these are not empty promises at Guaranty, stop by any time for a cup of coffee and let us prove it.

Free National Park Day April 21st

A Brief History

It takes an Act of Congress to establish a new National Park these days! I am having a little fun at our government’s expense, but actually it is true that Congress must approve any new National Park. This wasn’t always the case, in fact when Yellowstone became the first National Park in 1872 there was no designated process and no assigned government agency to oversee the fledgling program. It wasn’t until 1916 that President Woodrow Wilson signed an act that created the National Park Service. At that time the act brought 35 national parks and monuments under control of the Park Service. Today the National Park System includes more than 84 million acres and is comprised of 417 sites, including national parks, national historical parks, national monuments, national recreation areas, national battlefields, and national seashores. There is at least one national park in every state. The largest unit is Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska. At 13,200,000 acres (53,000 km²), it is over 16 percent of the entire system. The smallest unit in the system is Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial, Pennsylvania, at 0.02 acre (80 m²). Last year alone, 331 million people visited national parks spending $18.4 billion, which supported 318,000 jobs across the country and had a $35 billion impact on the U.S. economy. Why is this important? It’s important because our National Parks are an integral part of the fabric of our country, both economically and idealistically. As former National Park Service Chief of Public Affairs David Barna says, “Never in its [1] has this nation needed the National Park System more. It stands as a collective memory of where we have been, what sacrifices we have made to get here, and who we mean to be. By investing in the preservation, interpretation, and restoration of these symbolic places, we offer hope and optimism to each generation of Americans.”

Foresight

It amazes me that nearly 150 years ago, when our fine nation was a much more wild and wide open space, some forward thinking folks decided we needed to protect and preserve our natural wonders from the “progress” marching steadily towards the horizon. Our National Parks have since come to be referred to in some circles as Americas Crown Jewels, and are often held up against the castles and cathedrals of Europe as historical wonders of the world. Even with the modest fee increase to visit many of our National Parks and monuments coming this year the memories made visiting these wonders will last a lifetime, and that is priceless. Now what if you could visit our National Park System for free? Well, you can on April 21st which marks the first day of National Park Week and is the next Free Entrance Day for 2018. “National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee-free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2018.”

RVers - The Modern Explorer

While Guaranty is not designated as a National Park or monument, we have been a fixture in our community for over fifty years and in 1983 the giant American Flag that proudly flies over Guaranty Chevrolet was dedicated, by then Governor Victor Atiyeh,





“This flag is dedicated to the great people of Oregon in recognition of one of our freedoms. The freedom of mobility as part of America’s heritage”.


Oddly I think that the people responsible for our National Park Systems inception, well over a century ago, and the modern RVer share an explorers spirit and a reverence for the power of nature. Pretty amazing considering in 1916 cars were just becoming affordable to the masses. RVs and National Parks go together like peanut butter and jelly, and while the parks are experienced at handling a high volume of visitors we strongly recommend checking with your intended destination ahead of time to get the specifics of the Free Park Day and if there are any recommendations from the park staff. If you have any pre-trip needs for parts or service, or you need to an inviting campground to stay over on your way to or from a National Park, our Guaranty RV Travel Center and RV Park have you covered.

Thanks To Those Who Went Before

Touring our Amazing Nation in a motorhome or truck and trailer satisfies an age old wander lust that is a fundamental human desire. Thanks to the many brave explorers who happily risked life and limb to not only see what lies over the next hill, but bring the information back to the rest of us, we get to enjoy some of the most grandiose spectacles nature offers without any risk ourselves. Well, maybe there can be line for the bathroom but that is a risk I am willing to take to enjoy America’s Crown Jewels!

Guaranty RV Service SPRING TUNE-UP Special

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Knowledge is power. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Wait, that cliche doesn’t work in this instance, or does it?

Based on the freezing temperatures we have “enjoyed” for the last week or so you would never guess spring is right around the corner. Traditionally this time of year folks are thinking about getting their RV ready for the upcoming camping season. Those of us in the Northwest usually don’t let a little weather stop our outdoor adventures, if we did we’d have about a month to go outside, but even here plans are being made to maximize that traditional camping season. This is a joyous time of year with the days getting longer and the promise of warm weather coming soon. The first camping trip of the season is a right of passage and should be joyous as well, but unfortunately it’s often the worst camping trip of the year.

I have worked in the RV industry for over twenty-five years and if I had a dollar for every customer that came in with a list of complaints about their first camping trip of the season I could have retired long ago. How systems and components deteriorate or fail when they aren’t being used is a mystery on par with why does dropped toast always land butter side down. My suspicion is that they were ready to fail but were not given the opportunity until the season’s maiden voyage. That doesn’t change the fact that Momma is giving you the stink eye every time she has to trudge up to the campground showers, wearing your sandals, because the water heater won’t fire off.

At Guaranty RV we strongly believe in marital bliss and the fact that the RV lifestyle should be one of leisure and enjoyment. Here is where the charming clichés listed in the opening paragraph begin to apply.

• An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Keeping your RV working correctly is easier and less costly than repairing it when it fails.
• Knowledge is power. Knowing the condition of your RV, and it’s various systems, means no surprises on your trip and you have the power to decide what needs to be addressed.
• Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Repairing minor issues as they arise is again less expensive, and also keeps you from coming back from your camping trip with that dreaded list.
•Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Still not sure how this applies, but keep reading and we’ll figure it out.

We know, even if you had the time to do all the pre-trip checks, preventative maintenance, and basic repairs yourself you’ve got a long list of all the other long lists of things you also need to get done. Who has the time? Guaranty RV has the time and we are offering it to you at a discount. Somewhere, in the distance, the sound of a gift horse galloping to the rescue. Told you it would apply.

Guaranty RV offers a Spring Tune-Up special for a mere $99.00. If you walked in off the street and asked us to perform all of the system checks included in the special, based on hourly labor, the bill would be three times that amount. To be clear, there is no diagnostic or repair included in the $99.00 Spring Tune-Up special. Guaranty will check and advise on the operation of your water system, propane system, and appliances. Both your house and chassis batteries, if applicable, the RV’s charging system and battery disconnects are all checked for condition and proper operation. We even check the bi-directional relay on motorized units. We will inspect your roof and sidewall seals for condition and do a full roof inspection. We even “charge” your holding tank with our favorite sanitation chemical, Happy Camper. When the checks have been completed you will have the comfort of knowing all is well or at least the issues that need addressing. If we do find systems or components that do not pass their inspection we would be happy to provide repair estimates. We can even order the list according to what we feel is the most pressing needs in order of importance.

Get your camping season off to an easy and enjoyable start. Call Guaranty RV Service at 541-998-4285 and tell them you want the Spring Tune-Up Special.
