A few weeks ago we shared the results of a survey we conducted among our Go iLawn customers. We wanted to know everything about preparing landscape estimates- the highlights, the pitfalls and everything in between.
Well, we did the same thing with our Go iPave customers to learn as much as we could about preparing pavement maintenance estimates, and their responses ended up being very similar to those of our Go iLawn customers. Granted, we asked the same questions to both groups of customers, but the parallels between the answers were still striking.
(Infographic) Pavement Maintenance Estimate Stats
For example, pavement maintenance contractors receive more estimate requests during second quarter than they do any other time of the year, just like the landscapers who answered the Go iLawn survey. Also, the hardest part about estimating for our landscape customers and our pavement maintenance customers is finding the time to do it. It takes time to measure properties, to factor labor and equipment costs, to format the proposals, and to meet with customers to close the sale.
Perhaps the similarities resulted because of the seasonal nature of landscaping and pavement maintenance? Or maybe it’s due to the fact that both landscaping companies and pavement maintenance companies provide property maintenance and enhancement services?
Either way, our customers are busy right now. They’re hitting the pavement (and the turf) meeting prospects, winning sales and servicing properties. They’re also saving time during the sales and estimating process because they’re measuring properties online!
See the statistics from our respondent’s answers in the infographic below, and a big ‘thank you’ to all of our customers who took the time to answer the respective surveys.
