People spend extra money to ensure they’re getting a quality product. Each year thousands of people spend a lot of money on the “biggest,” the “sturdiest”, and the most “heavy duty,” of everything. Marketing companies have done a great job instilling in our minds that just because something says, “heavy duty,” that it will last and withstand whatever tasks it’s meant for. It is the company’s responsibility to ensure that their products live up to their claims.
Some things we can let slide, like “heavy duty” trash bags that turn out to be “light duty,” and don’t stand up to what we expected from them. We can learn from our mistakes and buy different trash bags the next time, or double bag the barrel to ensure no more leaks.
On the other hand, there are certain times when we need to be able to trust the products. If we invest in a “heavy duty,” “top of the line,” SUV or pickup truck, we expect it to perform to that standard. It’s a huge investment, where we put our family and friend’s well being inside of that automobile.
The same goes for products found in a wellness center, like a hospital, or rehabilitation center. People do not typically enjoy going to these places, and if they do go, it’s because they have to. People found in these situations have enough things to worry about, and doubting that they are surrounded by durable medical equipment should not be an issue. Dealing with the condition that put you in the situation in the first place and working toward getting better should be the only concern on their minds.
The problem with today’s world is that everyone is in such a hurry to make a buck, that they sometimes forget or don’t care about ethics. If you say something about your product, you should have no choice but to stand by that. Sometimes people have to learn the hard way and buy the product once to find out that it’s a generic, low quality product and never buy it again. Then there are other times where people do not have the liberty to find out through experience, like with an automobile or with hospital or home medical equipment. Pay close attention when you find yourself in any of these situations, to ensure the highest quality products and service!
