Does this ever happen to you?
So went to NTB today to get my tires rotated and balanced. After about an hour of waiting the store manager came out and said that they couldn't get my truck on their lift because it is "Over Sized". I told him that I have been here multiple times and have never had an issue.
He came back moments later and said, "No, my technician does not feel safe working on your truck, I'll call around and find another store with a lift that can accommodate it".
Growing very impatient and feeling like I was surrounded by dumb*****, I replied with;
"Look, the last time I was here there was a Dodge that was sitting on 37's on that lift rite there, he was having new tires put installed". "If you don't put my truck on the same lift or at least try, I'm going to put it on there myself". "Like I said, I've been here 3 times in the past year and have never had an issue".
Within 5 minutes they had my truck on the lift. Do ya'll ever run into similar issues? I know our trucks are big but people look at them like their too much work or something. I'd much rather work on a 3/4 ton truck than a foreign compact any day of the week. Yes, our engines alone may weigh as much as a Honda but with the correct tools their way easier to work on. Opinions?
