Test Drive Shocks

We have been considering putting together a couple of sets of shocks to be used as loaners/rentals so people can try them before making the investment. The program would go something like this:

Customer signs up on a rental agreement for $25 to $50 to pay for shipping one way and places a Credit Card for deposit for the retail price of the shocks.

We send the customer a set of shocks to try out for a mutually agreed upon time period. At the end of that period the customer ships them back.

If the customer wants to purchase a set, then the deposit is kept and transferred to sale less the rental and shipping and a new set is then shipped to the customer.

This is unprecidented in this industry to get to test drive before you buy. No one else is offering something like this. Would anybody be interested in a program like this? Do you have any comments or suggestions? We are all ears.

I myself am a skeptical buyer. To spend the kind of money that people spend on untried products is a true leap of faith! This program will also cut back the customer satisfaction calls due to miscommunications on what was provided/expected. What you test is what you will get.....simple.

Thats a great idea, It may get me off my wallet!

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

It's a big investment buying shocks. I used to just give people a 1 trip trial. If they didn't like them i'd take them back. Never took a set back as any shocks are better than stock.
