There is no doubt that pricing based on the work that was completed has been the standard model for plumbing pricing for a long time. It is just the way things have always been. And it has made sense because so often when you begin a plumbing job, you never know what you will find when you start digging or taking things apart. But today we are questioning the status quo and you should to! Flat rate pricing is a win for everyone because it makes everything more transparent and simpler.
Here are 3 reasons why flat rate pricing is a great idea:
You might ask the question, why is flat rate pricing more possible now than in the past? Well, technology is a big part of the answer. We can track job time, materials, and even some unexpected events over the course of years, and then forecast what the cost of a similar job should be with very good accuracy. The result is an honest, steady, and predictable price that we can commit to before the job starts.
This is a win for customers because you know the price in advance and it’s a win for plumbers because it saves so much time trying to calculate the exact price for every routine job.
