Techs and plumbers hate residential service agreements. Owners and managers love residential service agreements.
Disagreement over service agreements is common. Most of these disagreements are polite and pointless.
Owner: “Why are you not getting more service agreements?”
Tech: “I’ll get more this week boss.”
Often, it’s not what is said that’s important. It’s what goes unsaid.
You deserve to know what’s inside the technician’s thought process. That way, you can work towards a good solution for both of you.
“You want me to sell a service agreement? Is it not enough that I have to spend two hours trying to convince the homeowner to repair his air conditioner? You also want me to do a whole house inspection on every call? To top it all off, you now want me to sell a service agreement? I’ll be there all day!”
“I really don’t understand you. You push for me to have a good average ticket on my plumbing calls, and then you make me give this discount. Tell me again why this is good?”
“If I have to push one more thing on a client, I’m going to go crazy! I just want to fix problems, not sell stuff all the time.”
“I don’t understand this crap! Why can’t they just make it simple? What is with this ‘bank reserve’ thing? Is this a maintenance program, or is it a Sam’s Club Membership?”
These are just four inside thoughts that techs have about residential service agreements. Don’t believe these thoughts are exclusive to “bad techs,” because they’re not.
Those 4 thoughts come directly from top producers! Think of plumbers who are doing over $50,000 a month, and HVAC techs who are selling and servicing over $100,000 a month.
So that leads to the question:
The answer is “Yes,” and our classroom training for service techs is the solution.
This isn’t an empty claim. We’ve actually proved it.
Richard Saxton (a service plumber from Steve’s Plumbing in Edmonds, Washington) won the award for most service agreements sold in a single year for 2013. This award was from an independent organization for plumbing contractors. Richard (and Steve’s Plumbing) has exclusively used our training system for the last year and a half.
