One thing homeowners dread most about buying replacement windows is the in-home sales appointment.
All Central PA window companies require an in-home appointment to provide a quote. They say it’s the only way to accurately price your project and ensure you get what you want.
Here’s what I say: They’re blowing smoke.
I’ll let you in on an industry secret… a secret window companies are terrified you’ll find out about.
Those “required” 3-hour in-home sales appointments? The ones where you have to carve time out of your busy schedule, invite a stranger into your home, and have “all parties present”?
To put it politely… they’re a ruse!
Bogus. Phony. A sham, through and through.
Here’s the truth: It’s EXTREMELY simple and quick for a window company to get the info they need to provide an accurate quote. In fact, it takes only about 5 to 10 minutes.
Why? Replacement windows cost almost the same (usually within 5%) from the factory, no matter their size. So the only things a window company needs to know are how many windows you want, the type of windows you want, and the kind of style and energy efficiency options you’re looking for. That’s it.
Window companies don’t actually need to measure your windows before a quote. They don’t actually need to meet with you face to face. And they don’t actually need to spend three hours in your home.
So… if it takes only 5 minutes to provide an accurate quote, how do these window companies spend the other 2 hours and 55 minutes during a sales appointment?
They twist your arm. They pull out all their best (i.e., high-pressure) compliance techniques. They do the full “dog-and-pony show” to try to dazzle you into a purchase.
