HOMEOWNER EDUCATION:

Homeowners biggest complaints about Repairmen are:
You have to call 5 ads and leave 5 messages before even 1 will call you back.
Wait... Wait... Wait...
Then, it's a game of phone tag back and forth and back and forth trying to talk to an actual Repairman.
When you first call you never get to actually TALK to a Repairman and ask even the simplest of questions.
They take forever to call you back, sometimes not for days and often they never call you back at all.
Wait... Wait... Wait...
Even if they do call you back you have WAIT days or weeks to get someone to look at your job.
Then you have to WAIT even more days or weeks for them to DO the job.

We talk to you LIVE, in person, the INSTANT you call.
NO WAITING, NO MESSAGES. NO RETURN CALLS.
We come out to look at your job the SAME DAY you call!!!
We come out to DO your job the SAME DAY you call!!!


Ever wonder why the other plumbers, painters, carpenters, gutter cleaners and other Handymen never post any of their prices???
Thats because they can't!!!
First of all... They do NOT... "Do it All". They only do a few assorted things and you will have to call several ads to get "Everything" done.
We have advertised "Do it All" on our flier for 40 years.
Second... If they published their prices... you'd never call them. Especially after comparing OUR prices!
Third... If they published their prices... they would not be able to jack their price up after they get there.
You know what they do... complain and pressure you to add on all kinds of extra stuff, work, parts.

Many ads hide behind Magic Phrases like "fair", "competitive", "best in the industry" and my personal favorite, "affordable" or "reasonable" prices.
Oddly enough, they don't state what their "fantastic" prices are! If their prices are so "affordable", so "reasonable", why don't they publish what they are???

Ask our competitors for their price over the phone! They will say... "We can't give you a price over the phone."
Its not true. They HIDE their price and don't want you to know how much they're gonna charge.
If you knew they were going to charge you THAT much, you would not have called them to start with!!!

"FREE ESTIMATES" ???
Everyone seems to brag about giving "FREE ESTIMATEs". They almost make it sound like they are PAYING you to come out. That no other guy in the state of Iowa gives Free Estimates. That its something unique, valuable, special or convenient. Part of THEIR special extraordinary business practices.

This is just another worn out, overly used, Magic Phrase used to trick people into calling. In fact, it is used to actually HIDE the price they want to charge you. Why don't they just publish their prices? WE DO! No call needed! No appointment needed! You can see OUR price without even calling us!!! (Our prices are listed at bottom).

How many times have you taken your whole afternoon off work waiting for the "FREE ESTIMATE" guy to show up?
How much MONEY did you LOSE waiting for him? How much MONEY did it COST you, taking time off work?
How much TIME did you lose? TIME you could have spent doing something else important?

Did you get a sitter for the kids? How much MONEY did that COST you? Did you miss other appointments? Was there somewhere else you needed to be? How much TIME did that COST you?
When the so called "Free Estimate" guy is late or doesn't show up at all... How much TIME and MONEY does it COST you? Of the 5 guys you called... how many returned your call? How many actually even SHOWED UP?

Even if someone DOES show up... you know they're not going to be there when they "SAY" they are.
You take half a day off work, re-arrange your whole day around getting your stuff done then...
You sit there waiting forever and wait wait wait. You already know they NEVER EVER show up on time. Half don't show up at all!
How much MONEY did their "FREE ESTIMATE", COST you?

Here's an idea:
The next time a "FREE ESTIMATE" guy touts and brags about his "FREE ESTIMATE" and how fast, reliable and convenient his service is... Tell him you are going to CHARGE HIM $50.00 if he is late or don't show up!!!
We always talk to you live the INSTANT you call. We are at your place within 60 minutes, 90% of the time!!!

Why call 5 other guys and set 5 appointments and wait all week to meet with them to get your mysterious, still unknown, "FREE ESTIMATE"? Here is OUR "FREE ESTIMATE". You can see it RIGHT NOW!
NO CALLING. NO MESSAGES. NO APPOINTMENTS! NO WAITING! WE are proud to publish our prices!!!
