Your Friday tip from your friendly neighborhood electricians:
GET MULTIPLE ESTIMATES.
Yes, we know we’re the best. We have many years of experience with a record of doing only excellent work, cleaning up after ourselves, being consistent, being punctual, polite, and professional. Our rates are very reasonable, and our reputation speaks for itself. We are grateful for all your kind words and referrals.
BUT you’re a wise consumer. So please, consider having multiple estimates done on larger projects for your peace of mind.
You the consumer should know the value of the product or service you are researching and purchasing. You wouldn’t buy a new computer or motorcycle without doing a lot of research. The same goes for upgrading or rewiring your home, adding a new addition, remodeling your kitchen, upgrading your service, installing a home theater.
Getting multiple estimates is good for our business too. We remain fresh and in touch with the real world of other contractors and electrical suppliers. We continue to research and find the most effective and efficient way to accomplish a task.
Multiple estimates on larger jobs helps you the consumer to understand where your hard earned money is going. Lowest bid is not always the best. We stand by our choices for products and tools and will not compromise or choose inferior quality unless you ask us to which would void our one year guarantee on parts! So our bid may not be the lowest! You the consumer get to decide if you want to sacrifice quality for price. And depending on the job, lowest price may very well be the way to go. And we may indeed be the lowest bidder. It’s important to have more than one bid to look at in depth so that you can make the most informed and accurate decision based on your personal desires and budget.
Your the consumer get to decide how you want to spend your money. So for your peace of mind, and our integrity, we urge you to consider two to three vendors for your home improvement needs.
Happy Friday and if you need referrals for other electricians and general contractors, please let us know. We will help you get those multiple estimates.
