How Much Is Your Broken Sink Going To Cost You?
Do you know that answer ahead of time? If yes, how much ahead of time? And, did it remain the same even after the work was over? Whether it is a sink or a malfunctioning water pipe, it needs immediate repair. These are things that cannot stay and we get weary of running behind that corner mechanic. When things break down, life stops. Now, imagine that being the routine thing in the morning in your house. What if tomorrow you have to go to an urgent meeting and you are with an overflowing sink? We know to call the plumber without being said.
But, do we know how much it’s going to cost? If it was a budget thing and we have no idea we are going to be in trouble. Now, let’s take the opposite scenario.Suppose, you are the company that gives plumbing services and your calls are not turned into work because of your pricing. Or, the customers are not sure of your methods. This can be really bad when your on-site personnel don’t have the right idea of the exact expense. When that is not there, you cannot give a quote to the client.
How to solve the problem?
It turns out that this problem was already solved 10 years ago when on-site inspectors came with pre-printed price books. They would look into it, add up the prices, and give a quote. Now, you know how much the overflowing sink repair will cost. Alright! But, as a customer, you would like to get it done fast. This cannot be solved with such tedious jobs. Thus, you must call a company that uses advanced plumbing apps for iPad to maintain their prices and serves quotations. You can inquire about a call beforehand. This is also important in emergency situations.
If the on-site guy sits for half an hour in the van making the calculations that would be a blunder. Once you are sure that you will be charged a flat rate, you are good to go. It is simply ridiculous to say take what you want, and just repair the leaking pipe. Such statements are only good in the movies.The exact quote and the tallied prices need to be checked back at the office and confirmed. They are the ones purchasing the products so the expenses cannot be error-prone. This is where plumbing estimating software does its magic. It allows both customers to look at the prices in detail and the office gets notified for confirmation too.
