Doesn’t it make you livid when the cable company would give you vague arrival service time of between this time and that time? I mean, you have better things to do then wait around and get distracted from a contractor working at your property! Have you ever seen the Seinfeld episode called “The Cadillac” where Kramer strikes back and plays the same game with the cable company?
Here’s what he was thinking:
“KRAMER: You remember what they did to me ten years ago? "Oh, we'll be there
in the morning between nine and one", or "We'll be there between two and
six"! (quiet anger) And I sat there, hour after hour, without so much as a
phone call. Finally, they show up, no apology, tracking mud all over my nice
clean floors. (malice) Now, they want me to accommodate them. Well, looks
like the shoe's on the other foot, doesn't it?”
We have heard over and over again that that the vague time frames for project scheduling from contractors is a major pain for property managers. Contractors would show up late, and not stick to set work start times.
We get it. Your time is valuable! You need to be kept in the loop. Your clients want to know for sure when projects start and finish.
That’s why Greenscrub is offering industry exclusive programs for carpet cleaning and parkade cleaning that gives specific times for arrival and estimated completion times and real time updates. Making things simple so you have one less thing to worry about.
I mean, Seinfeld is hilarious, but the last thing we want to do is create a group of unhappy Kramers!
