Customers are doing their research and so should you. Use the online survey alternative to find out what customers need and how you can make your dealership, vehicle rental agency, garage or car parts and accessories company the place where they want to take their business.

  • 4 Quick Tips to Improve Survey Response Rates

    We provide guides on how to write effective survey questions, as well as create and conduct surveys. Check them out! And in the meantime, keep your favourite motorists happy by making sure they complete your automotive surveys.

  • 1. Introduce your objective. Provide context with a brief sentence. Tell survey takers why you’re asking these questions and how their feedback will help, e.g. “Your suggestions will help us to better understand how we can deliver the selection and services you want most.”
  • 2. Keep it short and focused. Make sure each question brings you closer to your goal. Respect survey takers’ time and word questions clearly.
  • 3. Pre-test your survey. Pre-test your survey with a few people from your shop or members of your intended audience. You may uncover inconsistencies or unexpected question interpretations.
  • 4. Keep rating scale questions consistent. You know that people need their cars to get around quickly. If you’re using rating scales, help them cruise through by using the same points system throughout your survey. If 1 means “extremely satisfied” and 5 means “extremely dissatisfied”, maintain this scale for all questions.
