At Scotty’s Shine Shop, we are consumers like you and can imagine our prices can seem very high to our new customers. One of the most common complaints we hear from prospective clients is that our prices seem expensive. Unfortunately, on the internet perceptions and prejudices can often be rushed. So we decided to write this post to justify and explain the reason why our services might appear to be pricey. There are several reasons..
The first reason comes from an ideological choice of our way of working. We want to produce the absolute highest quality work possible and do not want to compete for the absolute cheapest work on the market. If we wanted to create lower-quality services with lower prices, it would mean we should compete with other businesses that are. Since we don’t want to do that, we decided to aim to provide a higher standard or service and craftsmanship. This entails:
- Using more expensive products and equipment
- Employing highly trained staff
- We Are FULLY insured
- Commitment to ongoing training and education
Then, there are other factors which influence the price:
we spend far more time on the work we perform than anyone else in our market, which means higher costs. Instead of cutting corners and shaving time off of jobs we ensure every job gets exactly the amount of time it should be getting in order to ensure a result as close to perfect as possible. Scotty’s are also the exclusive provider of products such as Opti-Coat PRO, CQuartz Finest and Modesta paint coatings. These products are all imported and extremely expensive to purchase. We are committed to only using the absolute highest quality products and equipment. That’s not just lip service either. We back it up. Examining all these points it becomes logic that it’s not easy to maintain low prices.
This is very important because each Scotty’s Shine Shop customer has to know they are not purchasing a trivial product or service. When a customer buys a product or service from us, they are buying our story, our culture, our philosophy and more importantly our results. Ultimately, as a consumer it’s your choice. Just remember, there is more involved in purchasing a service than merely looking at the price. Do your homework and examine not only what you are comfortable paying but the result you expect to receive as well. As always, we are at your service and happy to give a FREE consultation to educate our clients on what they need and don’t need and help to determine the right product or service that will perfectly suit those needs to provide the most satisfactory result.
