Why do you have to visit our site before we can get a quote?
We believe that meeting with the Client on-site we can provide the best quote possible. Every project is different and every site is different. By going on-site we can ensure that there are no areas missed that may, or may not, need to be a part of the requested quote. By ensure the scope of work is accurate, we will make sure that all the Client’s requirements are going to be met and are included in the quote.
Once the scope of work is completed, we can determine the most effective approach to take to successfully complete the Client’s project. This in turn will allow us to provide pricing that will complete the project in the most cost effective way. We believe that pricing for Client’s must be fair and realistic. This is how we build cooperative relationships and trust with our Clients.
