Car Connection

INTRODUCTION

When the team at Car Connection in Kaikorai Valley, Dunedin, decided they needed a website for their business they turned to Turboweb - the team just down the road - to do it.

CREATIVE BRIEF

For their website, Car Connection wanted to profile their team and promote their workshop and services. They also wanted to make it easy for clients to contact them and book their car in for whatever work it needed.

 

DESIGN AND CONTENT

Their logo and branding were already in place, so our website designer built on that fresh clear blue and white combo. This was used across the headers, areas of emphasis, and other design elements in the site.

Turboweb’s content team worked with Car Connection to write up detailed and informative pages about each of the workshop’s service areas. The goal here is to not only help a client know what is available at the Car Connection workshop but also to help the Car Connection website get found on Google when locals are looking for a mechanic who does a particular thing.

OPTIMISING GOOGLE MY BUSINESS

Our content team also set up Car Connection’s Google My Business listing, verifying it with Google, optimising it and adding all the useful details that can really increase a business’ visibility. With the Google My Business listing verified, Turboweb was able to embed a Google Map onto the homepage, with the Car Connection listing pin-pointed to make them easy to find. This Google Map is fully integrated with the wider Google Maps environment, meaning that people can click on the Car Connection pin-point and get their phone app to give them directions from wherever they are, straight to Car Connection’s door.

CUSTOM DEV AND INTEGRATIONS

One feature that Car Connection particularly wanted was a custom form that would allow clients to book their vehicle in for a Warrant of Fitness. On the homepage, Turboweb created a ‘Book your warrant’ button. This opens a pop-up window where customers can enter their vehicle details and send them straight through to Car Connection, who will then confirm the booking with them via phone or email.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Turboweb always recommend a professional photoshoot with our websites, and the Car Connection site is a great example of why we do. It takes a top-notch camera setup, and a photographer who knows what they are doing, to get such clear, crisp, well-lit photos of the inside of a mechanic’s workshop. Turboweb's standard photography package includes staff photos, images of your location and building so you easily get found and recognised, and in-action shots of your team and products. Our photography packages are always fully tailored to your needs.

EMAIL

In addition to setting up a new website for Car Connection, Turboweb arranged new email addresses for them too. We took care of the whole thing, from creating the email addresses themselves to setting up Office 365 for them so it works perfectly on all their devices. When it turned out that one of their computers was so old it couldn’t cope, we even put them in touch with some people who could help get that sorted too.

The final result was great: our new website meets our expectations and more.

We desperately needed a new website. The existing website had come with the business when we bought it, 5 years previously, and we really had no idea how to edit or manage it and neither did anyone else. The final straw was when we received thousands of spam emails every day for about a week. The only way to fix this was to shut it down and then we had a big panic wishing we had done something sooner.

Turboweb is a local company in our area, and we love to support other locally owned business when we can. We had worked with Turboweb before on our other workshop's website. We had also seen the great work that they had done on other websites.

The process was very easy. We had a couple of meetings with the Turboweb team to discuss what we wanted and needed. We had some professional pictures taken which I would highly recommend (this was easy and painless and make us and the workshop look great). Then we read over and approved the design and content drafts (which was very quick and easy).

That was it: website done and looking fantastic.
