Many companies tell their customers a FREE quote service. It sounds like a good deal initially however most people understand that ultimately someone pays for the time and effort it takes to prepare a quote. The honest truth is that this ‘administrative time’ is always factored into the invoice’s down the track. At Erin Solid Plasterers we strive to provide honesty and integrity in our service. Sometimes to give you the best advice we need to actually take a good look at all the factors and the conditions in your home in order to be able to provide you an accurate price. We don’t think surprises down the track are a good way to conduct our business and we like our clients to be able to make informed decisions. We do not give you a cheap quote upfront, just to hit you with “variations” once we get started. Put simply, we put your needs at the forefront of all that we do.
An important thing to remember is that paying for a quote is a long term in getting great quality advice.
At Erin Solid Plasterers we use our quoting process to provide an advisory service to our clients that includes:
- arrival of Aiden at the designated time (so no waiting around, wasting your precious time)
- professional consultation based on 30+ trade experience
- open and honest advice about how to approach your project to achieve the best long term quality outcome
- guidance on which order to engage and carry out various trades to save you time and money (so you don’t have to get tradespeople back more than once)
- advice on preparing your home and surfaces before works are to commence
- an itemised quote that includes all of the required tasks
At Erin Solid Plasterers we hope that will understand our transparency about this. We know many other reputable tradespeople similarly charge for quotes for the same reason – honesty and integrity in their process. We try to keep our administrative costs and business overheads low, so that we can continue to provide quality affordable service to our clients. We don’t have loads of tradespeople and hundreds of jobs each year. Aiden, our Chief Plasterer with 30+ years experience, oversee’s every single project to ensure consistent and quality outcomes are achieved for our clients.
Here’s what one of our clients Paul recently had to say about working with us via his Google Review:
I had submitted an enquiry for LED downlights to be installed into my Victorian era home with lath and plaster ceilings, I can confidently say the work performed by Aiden from Erin Solid Plasterers exceeded my exceptions and the LED lighting throughout the home is fantastic. From the initial enquiry to Aiden coming onsite to review and give professional feedback on the risks, best practices and possible problem areas I felt confident and assured on the outcome. Aiden is a true professional in his work and I have no hesitations giving future recommendations if asked.
Please do let us know how we can be of assistance.
