Abt’s Delivery Fleet Gears Up For Summer

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Our fleet departments had a meeting the other morning with the Abt family to get ready for the summer.  Our fleet, which includes deliverymen, installers and servicemen all went over preparations for dealing with a potential greuling summer and how to continue providing customer satisfaction.  With 240 trucks in the fleet and 210 going out at any given day, making 1,000 stops a day, our staff works from 5-6 days a week, sometimes 12 hours a day.  When it comes to deliveries and service calls, our staff does not come back to the store until everything has been done to finish the job.

If you are planning on getting an item serviced or making a purchase from Abt and are in the Chicagoland area, rest assured, your products both new and old, are in good hands.

Holiday Shopping Forecast

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

According to the Consumer Electronics Association, that while all around holiday-gift shopping sales might drop this year approximately 2% per person, the purchasing of consumer electronics is expected to rise by 5% per person.

Could this prediction come from the new releases of exciting items such as iPads and 3D TVs?  Perhaps. What do you think?

Do you have old documents, computers, printers, or electronics that you would like to dispose of, but don’t know how?

This Saturday, June 26, the Better Business Bureau will be hosting a “Shred Event” as well as safe disposal of unwanted electronics.

Recycle Old Goods For Gift Cards

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Even though Earth Week is coming to an end, Abt is eco-friendly every day. One of the lesser-known programs Abt participates in is super eco-friendly and has more to offer than just helping the environment. Abt is a proud participant in the CE Exchange. It’s a program for those with unwanted electronics who don’t just want to recycle or throw them away. It’s fast and easy to participate, just visit http://www.abt.com/Abt_CExchange.php3 and begin the quick three step process.

The CE Exchange will appraise your electronics, send you a pre-paid mailing label, and when the item is received, they send you a gift card for use at Abt, in the amount that was appraised.

Currently, the CE exchange is accepting mp3 players, mobile phones, gaming systems, cameras, camcorders, computers, and GPS systems.

The process is simple, choose the category of the item that you would like to recycle, then locate the model and click on it. For instance if you are hoping to trade in your iPhone, go to the phones category, pick Apple (manufacturer), then locate the model number of the phone (2G-3GS), just click on the model and see what it’s worth. After you complete the process and send in the item it will be processed, and a gift card will be mailed. Local customers can complete the process in the showroom and qualify for an immediate gift card.

For more information on CE Exchange, speak with an Abt customer service specialist today.
