Why to Choose Best Price Over Lowest Price
Price is one of the most important factors in your choice of vendors and partners. Certainly you’ll check the quality of companies you think about working with, but among a group of vendors who can all do the same job, you’ll likely pick primarily on price.
That’s good business. It does no good to spend more money for the same services.
But what if you aren’t paying for the same thing?
We know that Hill Electric is not always the lowest bid on a project. But we do think we’re the best price. So what’s the difference?
Much of it centers on one of our core goals: long-lasting partnership. We believe in doing such great work that our clients want to come back to us for every single job for decades (and many of them do!).
Here’s how that’s a better deal for you.
Have you ever chosen the lowest-bid vendor, only to discover that after a multitude of fees, upsells, and various extra costs, they were far from cheap? Being told that there were “unexpected complications” and a part “cost more than predicted” is frustrating, especially after the sixth (or sixtieth!) time. No one likes change orders!
We invest in the robust Timberline estimating system, which is complemented by our thorough and experienced employees. We can’t promise that it will be perfect, but it will be darn near close. You can expect the actual work to cost very close to the estimate you’re given at the beginning.
Lower Switching Costs
Every time you switch contractors, you have to go through the time-consuming hiring, training, and ramp-up phases. The new team has to learn the old contractor’s work, and you lose stunning amounts of money in the process. While some change is necessary in business, we believe long-lasting partnerships are often best for contractor and client. Hill Electric has been serving businesses in the Upstate since 1954, and we have a clear plan to continue serving for decades more.
Let’s go back to that lowest bid. Have you ever found yourself hiring a new contractor to fix the work the cheap contractor just completed? If you haven’t, learn from the experience of your peers. We often get hired to clean up the mess of an industrial project another contractor has left. If you have to pay for two contractors to do the work, is it really cheaper? Probably not.
Hill Electric does the work right the first time. And when you have good work and a long-term partner you don’t have to constantly retrain, you can focus on optimizing and improving your system.
Do the Math
Look beyond the on-paper cost of a job, and do some math about the long-term cost of hiring your electrical contractor. We would love to talk to you more about why we think Hill Electric can offer the best price for your industrial project.
