This post isn’t just about painting and power washing.
After over 30 years of owning Price-Less Painting and working with customers in Rockland County, Bergen County and beyond, one thing has become abundantly clear: Shopping local is the way to go.
Whether you’re driving the commercial corridors of Nanuet or West Nyack in New York or Paramus and Ramsey in New Jersey, the one thing you consistently see are big box stores and franchises. When you’re constantly hearing about these businesses, whether it’s weekly circulars for mega-stores in the Sunday paper or online ads for home improvement franchises, it’s easy to assume they’re the place to go for affordable painting, construction, fencing or other services.
Here’s our advice: Do some research into your established, local small businesses first.
Here are a few reasons why:
- We’re not fly by night operations. Choosing a small business with an established history in Rockland and Bergen means we’re not just in it for the sale. We value our reputations and pride ourselves on delivering top notch services at reasonable prices. Those big companies often having quick turnover, meaning the person you began the job with might not be there when you have questions down the road.
- We appreciate each job. We don’t have the arbitrary sales quotas you’ll see with many larger companies. That means we take the time to do the job right and ensure your satisfaction. You’re never a number to us. You’ll also have us doing the work, not just a random sub-contractor. Choosing the company with the biggest marketing budget doesn’t mean you’ll get the best results.
- We’re part of your community. We’ve discussed this before, but it bears repeating. When you work with a local small business, you’re supporting local families who, like you, own homes and pay taxes in our Rockland and Bergen communities, and keep profits local. Supporting small business is key to keeping our communities strong and thriving.
We meet most of our new clients thanks to word of mouth recommendations from our wonderful existing customers, many of whom we’ve worked with for years. So, instead of going to the big guys first, ask for small business recommendations from friends, family and co-workers. You won’t be disappointed.
