Should I Offer Exact Appointment Times


Visitors: 230

If you own a carpet cleaning company or are thinking about starting a carpet cleaning company you might be interested in offering your company exact appointment time. There are many pluses and minuses to doing this. Read this short article for some information that might help you decide whether nor not to do it.

Offering exact appointment times has many benefits for a company. For example it will set your company apart from the rest. Most companies offer three to four hour windows and make their customers wait all day for them to arrive. This can really irritate people and make them think that you do not care about their time. You might pick up a few jobs a week from people who hate to wait all day for a carpet cleaner. This can be a great selling point.

Another benefit is that you can charge more money. An exact appointment time is a feature that people are willing to pay for. A drawback of scheduling exact appointment times is that you can do less jobs. You will have some downtime between appointments and downtime is time that you are making no money. Another drawback is that you will have to be good at estimating job time. This is so you can schedule enough time to finish the job.

As you can see, there are pluses and minuses to scheduling exact appointment times. Just choose the one that makes the most sense to you and your business. Good luck with whatever you decide.
