Struggling with how to justify the purchase of a sewer camera? Read on…
When making a business decision about whether to add a sewer camera system to your business you want to weigh the pros and cons. This article highlights many of the pros.
- More Sales – no more missed opportunities because you don’t have a sewer camera
- Improve closing ratio because customer can see the problem
- Higher average sale – cost of video inspection, higher dollar repairs
- Offer more services – video inspection, pipe patching, excavating, etc.
- Improved efficiency & accuracy – eliminates errors, call backs and re-work
- Tax savings – Section 179 Deduction for equipment purchased, financed or leased. Calculate your deduction here. https://marlincapitalsolutions.com/get-financing/customer-tools/irs-calculator/
- You can be a one stop shop – makes you look more reputable vs having to subcontract out
- Job done right means happy customers
- Hi-tech sewer inspection systems – stream to phone or tablet, USB recording
- Subcontract for others that don’t have a sewer camera but need the service – home inspectors, real estate agents, plumbers, contractors, municipalities, septic companies, etc.
- Your opportunities expand with the more services you offer
- Recession-proofs your business – the sewer infrastructure is aging (especially steel and clay tile) which means there will be greater demand in the future for sewer inspection.
- Cleaning the line won’t solve the problem if the pipe is broken or has cracks – rework is a given
- No more call backs!
- Job is done right because it is diagnosed properly – eliminates guesswork
- Never miss cracked or broken pipes again
- Accurately mark where the damaged pipe is with a locator
- “Seeing is believing” and when the customer sees the issue in their pipe, getting the sale becomes a lot easier. Plus, they can also see you did the job right with a post inspection video
- Buy the right equipment, maintain it properly and it will hold its value.
