Hiring the Right Drainage and Irrigation Contractor Saves You Money. Here’s Why.
At Landscape Pros, we know that quality is everything, and we’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the premier Fort Myers drainage company. We seek to exceed our customers’ expectations on every job, and we will not be satisfied until you are. Workmanship is important, quality of materials is important and the long-term functionality of the project has to be considered. Our elite teams work hard to make sure that you get exactly what you expect and deserve with any drainage and irrigation job.
However, the process for most people who are looking for our services starts by asking for quotes from a few different businesses. What they’re often looking for is simply the lowest quote. They want the businesses to compete with each other so that they, the client, can save money. They then choose the quote that will get the job done with the least investment, and they assume that they’ve made the proper choice and hired the right Fort Myers irrigation company.
We do understand that your budget has to be considered and that everyone looks at these projects differently. But we would warn you not to assume that the lowest quote actually means you’re going to pay the least. There are many situations that we have seen in which the lower quotes end up costing far more in the long run.
When You Pay for a Low-Quality Result
The problem is that selecting the lowest quote may mean that you’re also paying for the lowest level of quality. It could mean that the company you hired is trying to churn through as many jobs as they can possibly book, so they’re going to rush through every step in the process. It could mean that they know that they need to get their own costs down, so they do it by using inferior materials or products. It could mean that they simply don’t pay their workers as much, so they have higher turnover rates and far less experience on their team.
When you see a low quote, you want to ask yourself why. If the reason that it is so low is because of some of the factors noted above, is that actually the Fort Myers irrigation company that you want to hire?
What often happens to us here at Landscape Pros is that people will go with the competition because they see the lower quote and they assume that they’re going to save money. Then the job gets completed, and they find all sorts of issues with it. They could have serious complications where the system doesn’t work, there could be damage to the property or they may just realize at the end of the job that the quality is severely lacking. In any case, they have to call someone else to come fix that work, and they end up calling us.
While we are more than happy to come in and use our experience and skills to fix the job and do it the right way, you should know that you’re basically paying twice for the same job. You still have to pay the quote that you got from the competitor, and then you have to pay us to do the job correctly and make sure that everything works. If you would have gone with our quote at the beginning, even if it was slightly higher, you would have saved money.
Saving You Money Is One of Our Goals
If you get a quote from us and it’s higher than the competition, don’t assume that we don’t care about saving you money. We absolutely do. We want to make this fit your budget. We want you to save long-term, and we want you to know that you got what you were paying for.
We charge you more up front because we are going to use the best products and materials, we have decades of experience on our crews and we only hire the very best. We know we’re going to do a terrific job. This may mean that it takes longer and that you get a higher quote to start, but you don’t have to call us twice. You’re not going to run into all these long-term costs relating to upkeep, maintenance, damage repair and everything else.
You also want to keep in mind that having an irrigation and drainage job done incorrectly simply makes everything more complex. You may want a sprinkler system installed with below-ground water lines that hook up to a timer. Once you have the whole thing installed, if it doesn’t work, we might have to tear up the lines and replace them or fix the issues. All of that takes a lot longer, and then we still have to put everything back together at the end. This makes it even more expensive to do the job twice, rather than just saving yourself the headache – and the money – by selecting our quote from the very beginning.
