The next time you’re looking for a lift to take your car to a friend’s place, think twice.
That’s because some retired car salespeople don’t want you to.
“If you want to know why I’m not a car salesman, you have to ask,” said Chris Gaffney, a retired salesperson from Michigan.
If you feel unsafe, you’re not comfortable. “
If you’re uncomfortable, don’t drive.
If you feel unsafe, you’re not comfortable.
I’m happy to drive and be safe.
But for many car salesmen, car lifts are not only dangerous but also downright dangerous.
The average American is about 40 miles per hour faster than the average car, and that’s why some car lifts can cause accidents, said Tom Stebbins, a professor of human factors and performance at the University of Southern California.
Even when they’re properly maintained, the cars can be unstable.
One reason why people don’t get the car lifts they need is because car salesman have a long history of not being safe.”
There’s always been a lot of fear that people had when they were selling cars,” said Stebbains.
Car lifts are also not for everyone.
They require a lot more money, a lot longer hours, and sometimes more equipment than a standard car lift.
For those who have been in the business for 20 years or more, Stebbs says the biggest concern is safety.
When I first started in this business I always thought it was safer to be safe than to be right,” he told ABC News.
As for why some people still want to sell cars, Stibbins said the reason is often personal reasons.
“When you’re a salesperson, you want the customer to feel comfortable,” he explained.
We can’t be the next guy in line.” “
We have to be there for you.
We can’t be the next guy in line.”
“It’s very important for a car sale to be a safe experience, and we’re not going to do that with the car you’re sitting in,” said Gaffneys.
