Sometimes shopping for lawn care may seem like an intense negotiation to arrange for world peace. Lawn care companies are notorious for raising their prices to give them extra wiggle room to negotiate. However, most lawn care companies do offer several discounts that you don't need to haggle for, and in today's blog we'll look at the top four:
- Pre-Pay Discount - Most national and regional lawn care companies offer a pre-pay discount if you're willing to pay for your full year of services up front. Weed Pro is one of the few local lawn care companies that not only practices pre-pay discounts, but also offers one of the best discounts in the nation, giving you 7% off your services. When hiring your lawn care company, make sure to ask them up front if you can pre-pay for an additional discount.
- Online Auto-Pay - Most Americans today use the Internet to pay their bills online offering them a convenient way to manage their budgets. Most larger companies offer consumers online access to their accounts, allowing them to sign up for a re-occurring charge on a monthly basis offering them a discount when doing so. Weed Pro follows this practice, and allows consumers to sign up and manage their accounts online, even offering a discount when doing so. It's an easy way to save money, and manage your overall budget.
- Senior or Military Discount - You've either worked hard all your life and now want to enjoy your golden years, or you've dedicated your life protecting Americans from danger. In my opinion, as well as others, that should earn you much gratitude and a big "thank you." Lawn care companies often share this belief and offer their senior and military customers a discount on their services. However, you won't know if your lawn care company offers it unless you ask. Weed Pro is proud to offer our seniors and military personal a 5% discount off their services.
- Referral Bonuses - Lawn care companies and other businesses are still reliant on the positive word-of-mouth recommendations of their current customers. Often companies offer some sort of a referral discount to encourage customers to recommend the company to friends and family. Weed Pro has a great referral program for their customers where each customer receives a $25 discount, while the recomendee receives $25 too. It's a great way to reward both, and let everyone save money on the cost of lawn care.
Haggle-Free Discounts Are Only One Thing You Should Look For When Hiring a Lawn Care Company
Discounts can make any purchase seem better to us and give us a sense of satisfaction with our decision. However, a discount on service isn't worth much if the service is not good.
