One of the most popular gifts around the holidays at Extreme Audio is a remote starter. As the weather turns cold, people set their sights on going out to a warm vehicle. We have been specializing in this category for more than 15 years and have developed this checklist to make your buying experience easier. Here are our suggestions for:
Buying A Remote Starter As A Gift
Find Out The Vehicle Specifics
Get the year, make and model of the vehicle in which you want a remote start installed. These are going to be the first questions we ask you, so this way, you will be prepared. It would be great to know if the vehicle has an automatic transmission, and if it starts by turning a key or by pushing a button on the dash.
Have The Facility You Buy The Remote Starter From Install It
We always suggest getting the remote starter installed by the same company that sells you the unit. This way, in the rare instance the starter needs servicing, the person getting the gift only has to call one place. It will make the recipient’s life easier.
Decide When You Want The System Installed
Think about when you want to have the remote starter installed. If we are doing the work for you, we can hide the antenna for you so no one will know it has been installed. You simply give the gift recipient the remote controls at the right time, and we can gladly move the antenna at no additional cost to achieve maximum range. You just have to figure out a good excuse to get the vehicle from them.
Never buy a remote starter from a big-box store or over the Internet. You want to make sure the system is going to work properly on your friend’s or loved one’s vehicle, so we suggest picking a local shop that specializes in this product.
Visit The Facility You Plan On Purchasing From
Go to the store yourself and talk to the employees there. Is the shop clean and modern? Would you want to shop there? Are the employees pleasant and helpful? Remember, the gift recipient will be interacting with these people. This also gives you an opportunity to allow the staff to get to know you a little and understand which remote start is the best one for your friend or loved one. It is not uncommon for a store that specializes in starters to have several models, and deciding on the right one can be overwhelming. At Extreme Audio, our staff are all specialists in remote starters, so they will make the buying experience enjoyable.
We Offer Pre-Wrapped Packages
For the ultimate in convenience, we even have many of our remote kits pre-wrapped for you, so all you have to do is put it under the tree. The kits come in beautiful packaging, and we do the installation after the holidays.
Book The Appointment When Purchasing To Ensure Timely Installation
When you buy the remote start, we can book the installation appointment for you after Christmas so it can be done. If the person calls us to book the job after they receive your gift, the install dates will be farther out, since we get backed up from doing lots of them.
We invite you to stop by Extreme Audio at our Mechanicsville or Midlothian stores. Our team will work one on one with you to find the perfect remote starter for that special someone.
