If you’re working hard to build your HVAC business, you are no stranger to cost cutting. Less money spent wherever possible means you’re that much closer to realizing a profit and being able to grow your business.
Whether you want to take on additional workers, invest in new vehicles or equipment, or do some local marketing, you won’t have the funds to do anything if you don’t-well, have the funds. Powerhomebiz.com
One place to save is by shopping around for HVAC supply parts you need. Whether you want quality Trane or Lennox parts, you’ll want the lowest prices possible…and more.
More of what?
You may be wondering what more you’d need beside cheap prices on your HVAC supply parts. While the bottom dollar is the bottom line, other factors can affect your expenses too.
For example, let’s say you find super low prices on Lennox air conditioners and you place an order for a customer. A week later, you’re still waiting to deliver on your promise to rescue your customer from the heat wave and there’s no new unit in sight. So, reliable, quick shipping matters, right? If your customer jumps ship and gets help from someone else, you lose out on more than just a few bucks. You lose the profit from that job plus other business you lose when your customer’s family members and friends don’t call your business for HVAC help.
Another scenario: You order a heater pump and some other Lennox parts. Everything is delivered on time. You arrive at your customer’s house to make the repair as promised and the heater pump isn’t functional. This isn’t going to fly. Businesses that want to thrive can’t afford faulty parts, and risk business and their reputation. It just can’t happen, right?
Scoping out a Supplier
So, how to find the best supplier for the Lennox parts and other items you need? It’s easy to shop online, though not quite as easy to know if the provider is reliable. One good approach may be to contact the dealer directly before you buy. Ask to speak to someone in charge and let them know that you are interested in forging a mutually beneficial business partnership. This will help you get a feel for the business approach and let you know what kind of response you can expect down the road should you order HVAC parts from them.
It makes sense to take the time to read everything on the site about shipping, returns, exchanges and business credit. Some sites also feature testimonials and FAQs. Look for evidence of any kind, from troubleshooting guides to quote forms, that let you know that this company is willing to go above and beyond to get and keep your business.
