We Offer Up Front Pricing

March 14, 2019 - Video Chat a Pro

Well, I have heard it 100’s of times, can you give me your upfront price over the phone?  And I must reply No.

In the Service Repair Industry, it would be a grave mistake to give a price for a repair with-out first looking at said repair or replacement. However, the customer is asking for a price over the phone to perform a repair of a leak around the base of the toilet, claims another plumber cleaned the drain and reset the toilet, but he did not know if the wax was replaced. He was given a price to replace a wax ring, when the plumber changed the wax ring and reinstalled to the toilet there was still a leak. Turns out the bowl was cracked, but the homeowner says you gave a price to fix a leak, the toilet still leaks. Long story short the customer got a new toilet for the price of a wax ring and we did not get any review. The lesson learned is no prices over the phone if I can not see the repair or replacement.

The Platform allows you to educate your customer and accurately diagnose the problem and give an accurate price over the phone. The customer may not like your price, but they will trust your company because you gave the customer what they wanted a price over the phone. Statistics show people buy things from people they like and trust, when we say Upfront price and charge a fee to come to look at the repair to give the Upfront price, we lose the customer trust and the technician must rebuild when we arrive to make the sale. The customer dislikes waiting for us to arrive to give repair options and be sold the repair. This process of paying a service fee and wait to get a price does not allow the customer to shop for the best service provider that fits their budget and schedule.
