When life brings the unexpected, BowMel has stepped up for us each time. Our first experience... a vehicle bought from a dealer in Victoria. Our horn started going on by itself. Hubby drove into their lot. A guy came outside AND in the pouring rain, kindly asked if he could take a look. He didn't want any money for fixing it! That first kindness brought us back... 4 times now. Thanks BowMel.

We recently purchased a 2005 Toyota 4Runner from Blake at Bowmel and had an excellent experience. The team had detailed the car and checked over the runability. Everything seemed great, and was just what was advertised, no surprises. My partner is a mechanic so he would know if there was something wrong. We live on the Gulf Islands and Blake picked us up from the ferry in the vehicle so we could test it. They set us up with insurance right there and we were able to drive it home. We have been driving the car for several weeks without issue and we love it! A big thank you to Blake and the whole team!

The time had come to get a new vehicle for the two of us. As my son Colin Bayley works as a parts man for Bow Mel we wanted to support the company he works for. I looked on their website to check for a Dodge Caravan in the used inventory. I found what we were looking for. The website was easy to navigate and had great pictures of the vehicle details. I had Colin have a look first. Steve and I drove up to Duncan Wednesday night to have a look and take it for a drive. We liked what we found and worked with Blake Watson in sales to put together a deal. I was able to use my 1986 Dodge Aries with 153,000k original miles as a trade-in, every penny helps! So hear we are Thursday night doing the deal. Everyone at Bow Mel worked as a team to make this happen for us. We will be on the road soon. Thanks to all at Bow Mel Duncan from Carol Bayley & Stephen Johnson

Have been drooling over a 2015 Renegade for too long. The folks at Bow-Mel Chrysler were very patient with me and when I finally made the decision to purchase it were just awesome with their help. From the sales staff, parts staff and support staff just great! Just love the Renegade and so pleased I was able to purchase it from a dealership that has been locally and family owned in our Cowichan Valley for 50 years. Shop local it sure worked for me!

Many companies boast about their excellent customer service but then you go there and its just average or even below average. They often fail at basic customer service 101, smile and be pleasant to your customers. But service is one of the biggest factors in customer loyalty. Why spend tons of money on advertising if your people are going to let down the customers those ads bring in.

Will Taylor at Bow-Mel Chrysler is one of those guys that understands this and provides the kind of service that keeps me coming back and recommending him to others. He is always friendly, knows his stuff and really cares and goes the extra mile to not just satisfy but impress customers. In fact I was a customer of Ensign Chrysler in Victoria years ago when Will was there and when he moved to Duncan and Bow-Mel, so did I. I bought a new 2014 Cherokee at Bow-Mel again because of the service I got from Will. I knew I would be taken care of.

Bow-Mel should try to get more guys like Will Taylor in their service department.
