Grand Comfort Plus: Revolutionizing The Plumbing Services Market
Almost every homeowner can relate to having a plumbing issue suddenly arise out of the blue. A broken boiler, leaky pipe, clogged drains, and water heater issues can all give you a major headache when you least expect it, especially when there is no simple way to find a handyman in your area. Even if you are able to contact a plumbing repair professional, it is often unclear how much the repair will cost until the job is done, and you may end up paying hundreds of dollars on a call-out fee for a simple fix.
On the other hand, things aren’t exactly rosy for local plumbers and handymen, either. Plumbers often have no true understanding of the task at hand until they arrive at the property, and most of the time, they are not paid until the job is completed. This can lead to issues when managing their business and can also create financial insecurity in their day-to-day lives. Furthermore, many plumbing business owners must devote a significant portion of their time to administrative tasks, marketing, and dealing with customer concerns and inquiries in order to make their operations run successfully. All things considered, it’s safe to say the plumbing sector is in desperate need of transformation. Fortunately, Grand Comfort appears to be on track to bring about much-needed change.
Introducing Grand Comfort Group
After starting out as just a regular plumbing business based out of Chicago, Grand Comfort Group has quickly grown to become one of the industry leaders driving technological change for plumbers and customers across the nation. Operating as the self-proclaimed “Uber of the home services market,” Grand Comfort is currently one of the fastest-growing home services businesses in the country, thanks to their innovative service, GC Plus.
What GC Plus offers plumbers
GC Plus provides a platform where people can easily connect with plumbers and home improvement specialists all over the country. This platform empowers both independent plumbing contractors and large-scale companies to take full control over their revenue, streamline their workflow, and focus on what they do best. In turn, this leads to a vast array of benefits to the end customer, which we will discuss later on in the article. But first, let’s jump into some core advantages of the GC plus model for the ones putting in the elbow grease.
An easy way to adopt new technology
In this day and age, the companies that are quick to adopt new technology are the ones that tend to succeed. However, new technology often comes with a high price (and risk). With this in mind, GC Plus provides a full network of affordable software and tools that cover scheduling, booking appointments, video calling with clients, and marketing.
GC Plus provides more than just leads; they schedule appointments on behalf of the plumbers. In fact, they guarantee approximately 3-5 appointments per day (on average), and they even allow home improvement professionals to leverage their systems to generate more appointments as they continue to grow.
An opportunity to represent an established brand
Plumbers under the GC Plus umbrella benefit from representing an established brand, including access to a fully wrapped van.
On top of this, GC provides access to all the necessary equipment to complete the jobs.
Lastly, GC plus offers continued seven-day support from a remote team that helps with tasks such as planning your daily schedule, following up with customers, paperwork and accounting, and even a marketing strategist that will work with plumbed to make sure they gain more market share in their area.
What GC Plus offers customers
Now let’s take a look at some of the main benefits that GC Plus offers to customers, whether in case of an emergency or a home improvement job that they are planning.
One of the standout features of GC Plus is its video calling capability that enables customers to connect with plumbing professionals remotely.
During these calls, plumbers will help diagnose the issue and, if possible, provide step-by-step DIY instructions to help you fix the issue yourself, saving you time and money.
Instant quotations and fair pricing
There is no more being left in the dark with prices until the job is done. With GC Plus, all prices and costs are settled upfront. On top of this, there are no extra fees such as overtime charges, since plumbers can see the price they will be paid in advance and choose to accept or decline the job. All customers have to do is enter their zip code and provide details of the problem and the repairs they require.
24/7 emergency services
As previously mentioned, plumbing issues can happen at any time of day. Therefore, you need to be able to access a plumber when an emergency strikes in your home outside of normal business hours. Fortunately, GC Plus instantly connects customers with plumbers for a wide range of emergency plumbing services, including sewers, water lines, drainage issues, boiler problems, and piping problems.
Finally, all independent contractors and plumbing companies inside the GC Plus platform have been privately vetted. This means that customers don’t need to worry about the validity and trustworthiness of the professional conducting the repairs.
It looks like on-demand is finally being implemented around the country, which will help to make plumbers’ lives easier while driving more value to customers and eliminating many of the hassles of calling out a handyman. You can currently access the GC Plus website to request assistance or use their mobile app to auto-match with a local plumbing professional for any project on your to-do list in one click and with upfront pricing within 60 seconds.
