SMILE MORE.

We’re Well-Known For Our ‘Good Deeds For Free.’
Here’s Why We Do It.

Service Champions is recognized for the quality of our service, but we’re probably at least as well-known for our ‘Good Deeds for Free.’ Our technicians look for small ways to give our customers and the community a helping hand.

We’ve performed just about every kind of deed you could possibly dream up: we’ve swept floors, found dogs, repaired bikes, started stalled cars, delivered birthday cakes, cleaned up broken mirrors, fixed doorbells, carried lots and lots of heavy things… and have brought in or taken out tens of thousands of garbage cans!

Good Deeds aren’t just for our customers, however. We’ve served the homeless, rescued motorists by the side of the road, and given our time and money to many charities.

So why do we do this?

First, it’s a way to say thank you to our customers and show respect for them.

It also just makes our jobs more satisfying. When we ask technicians how they feel after doing a Good Deed For Free, they tell us it makes their day as much as it makes the customer’s day!

And, lastly, it simply makes everyone smile more. That can’t be a bad thing!

Service Champions technician Eric had just finished a tune-up on a customer’s furnace in Hacienda Heights and was on his way out the door when he noticed something that concerned him.

It was the 2nd week of January, and the customer’s Christmas tree was still up, and looked as if it was well past its expiration date. And it didn’t just look bad and out of date—it was a dried-out fire hazard.

Eric wanted to help… but he’s allergic to fir trees!

He decided to help anyway, rationalizing that the danger of the fire hazard outweighed the possible annoyance of his allergies. Plus… Good deeds for free!

When Eric asked about the tree, the customer explained that she had been waiting for her daughter to come over and take care of it, but she just hadn’t made it over yet.

When Eric offered to dispose of it for her, she politely refused… but Eric could tell from her reaction that she would be relieved to get the tree out of the house. In his friendly way, he said, “No worries!  I have everything I need!”

The customer stood silent, jaw opened with amazement, as Eric went into “perpetual motion machine” mode and took care of that tree. Off came the ornaments and lights. Out to the curb went the tree (in the pouring rain!). Then he returned inside and cleaned up the needles.

“Eric the Efficient” was able to complete it all in about 20 minutes flat. And suffice it to say, the customer was thrilled.

“She wouldn’t stop saying ‘thank you,’” Eric said. “It was pretty cool.”

And by the way, Eric was fine in the end—nothing a little Benadryl couldn’t fix!
