At The Herb Chambers Companies, we care about every client from those who walk through our showroom or call on the phone, to those who reach out online. Herb wanted to share some insight into several questions that have come up over the past year.
The evolution and importance of online shopping, understanding the “extra services” the Herb Chambers dealerships and websites offer, and hearing it straight from Herb will aid you in deciding where to shop and service your car with confidence. From the latest trend in electric cars, to how to skip the wait when your car needs a check-up or some body work, we’ve got you covered here. You asked, now Herb wants to answer…
Online Retail Buying
Q: Do you offer a way for me to purchase a new or used vehicle online?
A: Yes, this past year we introduced Herb Chambers SMART BUY. This is our online shopping and buying tool, which makes acquiring your next car, truck or SUV your way, very easy. SMART BUY is a car-shopping experience that’s available on each and every one of the thousands of new and used vehicles we have in stock. Now, in Massachusetts and in many other states we serve, there are laws that prevent you from “completely” buying the vehicle online. The Herb Chambers SMART Buy digital retailing tool allows you to design lease terms or an auto loan payment plan from the comfort of your own home. Visit www.herbchambers.com to start the process and save a tremendous amount of time when you arrive at the dealership for pick-up.
Now if you’re like me, I personally LOVE the in-dealership experience. I’m so passionate about cars! I love seeing them in person and love being able to sit in them. The colors really pop (or maybe they don’t) when you see them in person.
Another of the reasons I love this online tool is because SMART BUY is accurate! As a matter of fact, it is powered by the exact same software we use in our dealerships. With this user-friendly system, you're given the power to select your own terms and walk in with confidence that your numbers will not change. Herb Chambers SMART BUY is “open 24/7”!
We Got You
Q: My car needs some body work. Can I go to any of your dealerships for that?
A: Hey we’ve got you! At Herb Chambers cars are our passion and we recognize that accidents do sometimes happen. We have three Collision Centers ready to help! All Herb Chambers Collision Centers work for you, not the insurance company. We also work with every insurance company to provide original factory replacement parts and we have procedures to guarantee the best quality repair available. Make Herb Chambers your preferred location. For detailed information click here or visit us in Braintree, Danvers or Holliston. Our technicians are truly artists!
As for all our dealership locations, we are ready to assist with anything else your vehicle may need. A quick “check-up” or a major service repair. Again, we are your “one stop” for everything automotive!
Q: How do you feel about the latest is electric automotive technology?
A: We are seeing huge progress in range, performance, and style with the introduction of each new electric vehicle. Our dealerships are fully versed in the features and technology that the 2021 electric vehicles have to offer. We are excited about these environmentally friendly options, not to mention our consumers saving on gas.
Every new EV that is showcased at a Herb Chambers dealership has something unique to offer. Whether it’s the Hyundai Kona and its notable style and zippy performance, the impeccable driving dynamics of the 2021 Audi e-tron or the amazing affordably of the Chevrolet Volt or even the all-new Ford Mustang Mache-E, powered exclusively by electricity. The range, upgrades and new features are fascinating. You will find over 100 of these models and more at Herb Chambers. I had the chance to personally drive the Porsche Taycan and let me tell you, it drives like a Porsche sports car! The Taycan has stunning levels of acceleration and is a truly exhilarating ride in every way.
Not only is the driving experience incredible, but the styling of these new electric models is cutting-edge! These vehicles are gorgeous comfortable rides. I actually sat in the back of one of the original electric cars and it was so uncomfortable. The latest models we carry are designed with comfort in mind. Check them out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
Q: What is going on with vehicle availability and this chip shortage?
A: If you’ve turned on the news or picked up a newspaper (yes, I personally read the newspaper every day) you have seen something about auto manufacturers and production delays. This has plagued the auto industry entirely. The chip shortage is a major problem that we don’t yet have resolution to. Dealers are not receiving additional vehicles from the factories which is making inventory levels scarce in some places. I have started seeing situations where clients will change their mind on color or a specific option package, just to ensure they can buy a vehicle now when they want it. This is something we haven’t experienced before, so we are learning and navigating as we go.
At Herb Chambers we continue to foster innovative thinking with exceptional customer service and pride. Providing an extraordinary guest experience does not happen by accident. It happens through culture and by design. You will always find what you are looking for at one of our dealerships or online. From buying a car your way to repairing your vehicle with you in mind and keeping current with the latest auto trends, The Herb Chambers Family of dealerships has got you covered.
