Idea Exchange: My husband and I work as a team. At the present time we service some 55 businesses that are on our MDV program, which we increase almost weekly. We have taken extra time to acquaint Boat Dealers with what safety equipment is required on board a boat to be legal and have suggested to them that they put it together as a "package deal," which would include boat/ PWC, trailer and equipment. It accomplishes three things. It increases sales for the dealer, the boat owner has all the required safety equipment aboard to be legal and he could fulfill the necessary requirements to be awarded a CME decal and sticker. This is also a great opportunity to suggest a boating safety class.
Most dealers already bundle safety packs at thier point of contact. It is a great sales and safety aid.
