The Benefits of Going Local!!

Plumbing companies:  The benefits of going local

All plumbing companies worth their salt will provide, to some degree, the same services. When choosing among plumbing companies, it’s important to consider factors beyond just the services provided.  One such factor is whether the plumbing company is locally owned or part of a big national chain.

There are some advantages to choosing a national chain, to be sure. However, locally owned companies are often a better choice for most homeowners, for several reasons. First, unlike big chains with elaborate corporate structures, a locally owned business will often have one person at the helm. This benefits you as the customer because the owner has everything at stake by making sure the company does well. That translates into a commitment to customer satisfaction. A larger corporation’s success doesn’t hinge as precariously on each individual client.  A small-business owner will go above and beyond to keep each customer happy, satisfied and coming back for more.

Choosing a local plumbing company also means that the owner knows, and likely lives in, the area his company services. That means the company will be familiar with any plumbing issues that may be particular to the local area, and know how to fix any issues that might arise.

What’s more, by using a local company, you put your money back into your community. This is particularly true if you use a company that sources products etc. from local purveyors. That way, your money goes back into the community not only by helping out the plumbing company itself but also by ensuring that other local companies continue to get business from the plumbing company. When you use a big chain, you don’t know where your money is going.

Customer service is another reason to use a local company. Small companies rely on satisfied customers, and they will be only too willing to go the extra mile to ensure that you are happy. Their schedules are usually more flexible, it is usually easier to get a hold of your technician specifically, etc. These little extras make a big difference make a big difference when it comes to the experience you will have with a plumbing company.

A final reason to hire a local plumbing company is price. Although it may at first seem as though the best savings are to be had by hiring a large chain, the opposite can actually just as often be true. Small businesses have to compete with other companies, so they have to keep their prices competitive. That means that savings are passed on to you.

There is nothing necessarily wrong with hiring a big chain. They are successful for a reason. However, don’t overlook the possibility of hiring a smaller, locally owned company either. They have local experience, they are part of your community, and the money you spend will stay in your community itself. If those things are priorities to you, consider hiring a local plumbing company the next time you have an issue with the plumbing in your home.
