Never Return to Fix a Job Again
Returning to a property to fix a minor oversight can have a greater affect on your snow removal business than you might think. Aside from the hassle of leaving your warm and cozy home, the cost of returning to fix a job can have multiple repercussions.
Gas – It costs a lot of money to fuel your vehicle; unexpected trips to the pump can add up quickly.
Earning potential – Returning to apply deicer or to clear sidewalks doesn’t come out of the customers pocket, surprisingly enough it is your responsibility to ensure your customers are satisfied. When you forget these small, yet important details, your earnings for a particular property are affected based on the unallocated time and money spent servicing the property.
Time – Everyone knows the saying, ‘Time is Money’. This is especially true to businesses who are seasonality based and who have difficulty predicting a “busy” time of the year. Of course if you perform snow removal services, the word “busy” is an understatement when streets and driveways are covered in fluffy white stuff. Returning to fix a job causes you to be late for other jobs, potentially costing you customers which in return cost you money.
It’s safe to say, getting it right the first time is the safest solution to effectively managing your company’s earnings. Knowing and understanding each job’s scope of work is essential to operating a functional and successful snow business.
To keep yourself on top of your busy schedule and to reduce unexpected trips, review each task prior to performing services using the Sub-task feature on the TaskEasy App for Contractors.
The sub-task feature enables contractors to get their work done more efficiently by eliminating the hassle of having to call our call-center staff to confirm the scope of work for a particular job.
As a contractor, you will no longer have to question the scope of work or whether or not a particular detail is included with the job. Sub-tasks offer a clear and concise scope of work every time. To learn more about Sub-tasks, watch our video on completing jobs with sub-tasks.
