This is a question I have been hearing a lot lately. As we move into spring and summer months, most reputable businesses in lower mainland, British Columbia end up booking up one to two or even more months ahead. It can be very difficult to find a company that has immediate openings in their schedule.
This is actually a good thing because when a company is fully booked for at least a month in advance, you know they must do great work since they are in high demand.
If you find yourself calling last minute to find a company that can do next day or within the week service, prepare to be disappointed. There is a secret to hiring the company you really want to take care of your home maintenance services such as:
– window cleaning
– gutter cleaning & vacuuming
– vinyl siding washing
– decks, patios, walkways & driveway power washing
The secret to get the company you really want is to call to schedule your appointment well in advance. Ultimately the best time to schedule your appointment will be in the winter months. This is typically the slow time in this industry and ideally the best time to call.
December, January and February would be the ultimate time to contact your service provider, since it typically begins getting very busy into March.
Another great thing you can do to secure your spot with your home maintenance company of choice would be to agree on a home maintenance schedule. Whether you choose to schedule a monthly, quarterly or yearly appointment, it is always highly recommended to make sure your home environment stays clean and free of unsightly algae, moss and dirt buildup by scheduling your appointment well in advance.
Whether you choose us as your service provider or not, we can definitely say from experience that whomever you decide to call will appreciate your not calling last second expecting immediate service. When clients call well in advance especially during winter months, we would love to hear from you and secure your appointment well in advance.
