3 Ways The Cheapest Bid Winds Up Being The Most Expensive

Often in life, the old adage of “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is” is an accurate phrase that certainly applies to property maintenance companies. It’s easy to get lured into promotional pitches or preliminary budget estimations, but that should spark some internal red flags if what you’re seeing is lower than what you’d expect. Not only are these proposals somewhat deceptive, they could cost you in the long run. Here are just some of the ways that could happen:

 

  1. Poor Quality of Work

If a task isn’t completed with the highest of standards (that Green Side Up provides), then typically the task will have to be repeated several times and in the winter months will result in unsafe conditions of the property. When your property maintenance company proposes an offer that is particularly cheap, that usually means that shortcuts are being taken somewhere, whether it is the quality of work or the methods being used. This should never be the case when dealing with your property.

  1. Time

Your time is precious – and having to spend more time going over the methods and minutia of the property maintenance company / proposal you go with, will ultimately cost you more in time. Making sure the proper insurance is in place, and that the quality of work is up to par, can be a lengthy process. One that you can simply avoid by going with Green Side Up.

  1. Satisfaction

Your approval is of the outmost importance to us. If you aren’t pleased with the work being done, then it is essentially a waste of money. So no matter how cheap the proposal or bid is from the property maintenance company you choose, if you aren’t pleased with the results then it is a costly endeavour.
