Hiring a CCTV installation services company can be a terrifying proposition.
With the economic recession, individuals and unqualified companies are offering security camera installation services, without having the proper licensing or expertise.
Many times these individuals have lost their jobs at larger, more experienced companies. Since they can’t be hired anywhere else they get into the CCTV installation business just to make ends meet. Sometimes they will start their own company, without the proper credentials.
Not every person is experienced, reliable or good at running a business.
Have you ever been given the runaround from a company? They tell you one thing but you receive another.
Do they avoid giving you anything in writing? They tell you a price verbally and that’s it, no written proposal.
Situations like these happen all the time:
After getting a few estimates, you finally decide to hire a cctv installation services company.
Their sales pitch was good and you give them the go ahead.
Then they want a deposit and they haven’t even given you a written proposal yet.
Sometimes if they do provide you with a proposal, it doesn’t match what you have discussed.
The main reason for a proposal is:
- You protect yourself and your investment.
- You know you are dealing with a reputable cctv installation services company.
- You can see that you both are on the same page.
- You will know exactly what type of equipment will be installed.
Keep in mind that the best business relationships result in a deal that works for both parties. If you want a bargain price, don’t expect Mercedes services.
In this world, you get what you pay for.
You should know exactly what you want and if it will fit into your budget.
Don’t expect a 50 camera surveillance system for the price of a 16 camera security system.
Here are some steps you should take to ensure that you find a reputable cctv installation services company:
- Get referrals from other companies that they have done work for.
- Know exactly what your needs are.
- Make sure you get a written proposal.
- You should get at least 2 proposals, preferably 3.
- Always follow your gut feelings.
