Lincoln Provide Pickup, Delivery for Service Customers*

2017 Lincoln Continenta

2017 Lincoln Continenta

Lincoln adds the luxury segment’s only standard Pickup and Delivery Service across all 2017 nameplates starting with the all-new Lincoln Continental. The exclusive standard service builds on the brand’s commitment to providing a human, warm and personal experience.

Planet Lincoln‘s Service Valet will pick up a client’s vehicle at an agreed location and provide a complimentary Lincoln loaner vehicle. The valet will then transport the vehicle for service. Once complete, clients can arrange for their washed and serviced vehicle to be returned to them at the location of their choice.

“Lincoln Pickup and Delivery service revolves around complementing our luxury vehicles with outstanding luxury experiences,” says Andrew Frick, Lincoln North American director of sales and services. “This kind of Quiet Luxury provides an exclusive and personally crafted service experience that enhances their lifestyle and saves them what is a true luxury item – their time.”

Lincoln has been piloting this program with a select group of dealers since May 2015 with overwhelming results:

  • 98 percent of clients indicate they would be more likely to receive service from that Lincoln dealer in the future
  • 98 percent would recommend Lincoln and the service to a friend
  • 93 percent are likely to purchase another Lincoln vehicle

 

“No matter what Lincoln vehicle clients have from our portfolio, they have the peace of mind of getting that vehicle to and from service at a location of their choice, with a complimentary Lincoln loaner in order to maintain their busy schedules. When nearly 100 percent of clients receiving this service say they would recommend Lincoln to a friend, it clearly indicates positive momentum for the brand and our dealers,” adds Frick.

This exclusive Pickup and Delivery marks another milestone in Lincoln Motor Company commitment to merge great products, an outstanding experience and impeccable service – part of its original 2012 business plan. Since Lincoln began this journey, it has delivered four all-new products in four years, established a dealer network in China, built brand awareness, and increased volume for the brand and Lincoln products.

As part of Lincoln’s ongoing client experience efforts, these successful programs have already been implemented:

  • Lincoln Concierge: A trusted personal advisor – like the most attuned hotel concierge – assists clients 24/7 online at www.lincoln.com. While other luxury brands offer similar services, only Lincoln provides clients with an opportunity for video chat with a live person.
  • Black Label: Started in 2015, the number of participating dealers has increased to more than 90 committed locations. Black Label provides personalized shopping with dedicated personnel in the showroom, online, or in locations convenient to clients. Specially trained Black Label experience liaisons meet prospective clients at their home, office, or anywhere within 30 miles of the showroom to begin the experience. Acting as a personal shopping assistant, the liaison helps clients identify their ideal vehicle by sharing paint and wood trim samples, as well as material swatches. Lincoln Black Label owners enjoy special privileges – ranging from extended premium service and maintenance coverage on wear items to Culinary Collection membership that provides access to a curated list of restaurants from coast to coast.
  • Date Night: This extended test drive allows qualified buyers the chance to experience a Lincoln vehicle for up to 48 hours. In 2015, Date Night resulted in more than 11,000 sessions at select dealers, prompting nearly an 11 percent increase in Lincoln purchases. The program attracted nearly 70 percent of clients who had been with other luxury nameplates.
  • Lincoln Institute: Training for key client-facing individuals is provided through Lincoln Institute. The program, which combines all of the brand’s training efforts under one umbrella, has been expanded to include all Lincoln dealers. Lincoln Institute includes not only hospitality training, but an all-new series of workshops that provide participants with tools to help local teams develop and execute processes consistently for luxury clients.

Pickup and Delivery is an important milestone in Lincoln’s commitment to providing personal client services to match its unique luxury products, coming at the perfect time as Lincoln prepares to launch the much-anticipated 2017 Lincoln Continental.

The all-new Lincoln Continental returns as the brand flagship this fall, offering first-class travel for clients in America and China through warm, human touches and a contemporary design. The full-size sedan is designed to appeal to culturally progressive clients who define luxury on their own terms – craving superior quality, craftsmanship and safety.

“Quiet Luxury is Lincoln’s unique approach to ensure impeccable service is consistent with our outstanding products for the ultimate client experience,” says Frick.

Lincoln Makes MSN Auto’s ’15 Most Beautiful’ List

There are many gorgeous cars on the road. Lincoln makes a number of them. That is nothing new and MSN Autos agree in a recent article called: 15 most beautiful American cars of all time. So, guess what brand had multiple cars to make the list? Yes, that’s right… LINCOLN.Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.02 PM

According to the author, Kirk Bell, “there’s a big difference between a pretty car and a timeless design that transcends mere automotive beauty to be considered a work of art.” With that in mind, MSN Autos combed through history to identify the 15 of the most beautiful American vehicles. Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.32 PM

Only one 21st-century car made their list. “We wanted to include newer cars as well, but cars of the past few decades didn’t measure up, and today’s cars have yet to pass the test of time,” Bell wrote.Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.53 PMPlanet Lincoln invites you to come in and seeing the beauty that lives on in each and every vehicle from the all-new MKZ, MKZ and MKX and Navigator.
