How Does A Plumbing Company With Free Estimates Benefit Me?
The saying goes “If it’s good it ain’t cheap, and if it’s cheap it ain’t good”. This translates to many other companies charging you to come out and give you a quote, or in some cased they quote you low on the phone and then change the price when they get there. Tualatin Valley Plumbing does things different! We don’t not quote on the phone, but one of our technicians will come out for free. * Once we get on site, we offer our free estimate, and we do price for same day work. If it is a bigger job, we still offer that free onsite estimate and then book for future work.
Another frustrating experience is to be quoted low, but the plumber never makes it out to you. It’s often the response time and reliability of the repair person being able to come out when they say they will is crucial. Also, once you’ve discovered a company, take a look at their reviews. A professional plumbing business must have plenty of consumer testimonies to attest to the worth they supply.
