HOME SERVICE PROVIDERS THAT PROVIDE MULTIPLE SERVICES
Today’s homeowners are busier than ever, but there is also more than ever that should be done to keep your home environment in its best condition throughout the year. One of the best ways to accomplish this without adding to the stress of your life is to hire service providers that can provide a larger range of services through one company.
Business owners often know the value of using fewer vendors for better results, but many homeowners don’t use the same philosophy as they run their residential homes. What can you gain when you focus on home services that can do more? Here are five key ways you can benefit.
1. BUNDLING SAVES MONEY
You have likely encountered the idea that if you ‘bundle’ more services under one umbrella, you often get a discount for the whole package. Many homeowners already do this when they choose one provider for things like home wireless internet, television, landline, and cellphone services.
Extend this idea to other home maintenance services and experience more package pricing and added incentives. If you can schedule one service call for both your air conditioner tune-up and duct cleaning, for instance, you’ll pay less in trip fees and may be able to integrate other costs.
2. YOUR INFORMATION IS SAFER
Everyone today must be more aware of where their personal information is and how it’s being used — or misused. Each time you must use a new service provider, interact with a retail home improvement store, or give your information over the phone, your data becomes easier to access. Simply put, the fewer people you give your information to, the less you have to worry about leaks, hacks, and theft.
3. YOU GET TO KNOW THE PROVIDERS
Are you uncomfortable having strangers in your home to do various tasks? Most homeowners prefer to work with people they know, but often get different technicians and providers each time they call a company for services. If you use fewer vendors, you get more opportunities to familiarize yourself with the individuals who work in your home.
As you call fewer companies more often, you will be able to learn who their technicians are, recognize them, and know that you can rely on their work. And you don’t have to wonder what sort of work quality or guarantees you get from their company.
4. TECHNICIANS ARE FAMILIAR WITH YOU
As you become familiar with technicians, they also become familiar with your property. They will have records of what systems are in place and what each system has had serviced, repaired, or replaced. Rather than have to guess at what air conditioning unit you have or locate the warranty for it, an interconnected vendor will know what to expect and can make quicker maintenance and repair visits.
If the vendor works on multiple systems in the home, they also look at problems more holistically. If you ask for service on a furnace that doesn’t appear to provide enough heat, a technician that has also serviced the air ducts may be able to more easily identify a problem with cold air leakage instead of poring over the furnace itself.
5. YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL
When there is an emergency, you often don’t have the time or desire to call around to different companies looking for someone to handle the work. What you need is to be able to pick up the phone, find the right person in your contact list, and have them dispatched as quickly as possible.
Establishing a prior relationship with a vendor who works on multiple systems — from insulation to pest control — means you know exactly who to call when your furnace goes out during the middle of a Pacific Northwest snowstorm.
