After receiving repairs and maintenance on my vehicle last week, I was disappointed with the customer service. I wasn't shy about submitting an honest review. Shortly after sending the review, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from Klaben's Michael Van Hoose and Tom Papish.
I was thanked for my thorough comments and told that they would be used to improve the department's customer service practices. I soon found out that I would be the first to benefit. Tom arranged a follow-up appointment for my vehicle on the next business day.
I had requested an estimate on replacing a burned-out bulb at my initial appointment - my first time using Klaben's Service Department. This request was overlooked and subsequently, the bulb was not replaced. There were also some communication issues, which caused me to be late to an event I was scheduled to attend.
To say that Tom and Klaben made up for my negative experience is an understatement. They went OVER, ABOVE and BEYOND to make it right and ensure that I was a valued customer. Tom personally came to my job, picked up my car and took it to the service center to have the bulb replaced. When he returned my car a short time later, not only was the bulb replaced, my vehicle was washed and my gas tank was topped off! This complimentary (he wouldn't let me pay him) repair and extras meant so much to me.
Clearly, Klaben's apology is more than lip service. Their example of positive, memorable and excellent customer service has won me over and I now have a new service center. Thank you so much for taking the time, energy and thoughtfulness to make me feel valued and appreciated! I will be back and I will be recommending your service department to others.
