How It Works – For Contractors
So…How Does It Work?
Customers who are shopping for HVAC equipment online, find Preferred Contractor on the web and use our Installation estimate tool to receive an Instant Installation quote.
Our form has about 21 questions. Designed to Identify what they currently have and the time it should take to Install the new system.
Once the customer makes a request for a Contractor to verify the estimate. They are added to a job list organized by area. You can then see the answers to the 21 questions we asked them and the High and Low estimate we quoted them. From this point all you have to do is verify with them that you are willing to do the Installation only portion of the job for them within that range. Then start and complete the project. You install the equipment, get paid, and have a prime opportunity to arrange additional services like service agreements with a highly qualified lead.
We are simply here to help you and the customer connect directly with each other. Consider us like your support staff. We knock out the work of asking the majority of Installation questions, Then we email you this information based on your preference’s. Leaving you more time to complete jobs.
