The Hidden Costs in a Service Call
Sometimes people are concerned with the charges for a service call when we dispatch a serviceman.
Operating a dependable service business requires organization, competent management and a substantial capital investment. When a qualified serviceman arrives at your place of business, many costs have been incurred to prepare them to take care of your building and property maintenance needs.
Five minutes by a doctor diagnosing & prescribing would not be possible without many years of training. You pay for his knowledge and skill — not for his five minutes. Similarly, a qualified serviceman is compensated for what he knows, as well as for what he does.
In addition to technician training and wages, here are some of the other things that go into a bill for a service call:
- Vehicle Costs
- Travel Time
- Tools & Equipment
- Inventory of Spare Parts
- Actual Time on Job Site
- Dispatch Office Equipment
- Dispatch & Office Staff Wages
- Warehouse Rent & Overhead
- Truck Maintenance & Operation
- Insurance, Licenses & Permits
- Mobile Communications
We are proud of the services we provide. We make an effort to keep our costs as low as possible and pass those savings on to you, while still providing you with the finest quality of service!
