Commercial Christmas Lighting
No doubt Christmas decorations make a statement about how you and others see the properties in your care. Are your premier properties set apart from the others in any way? What are other properties at this price point doing? Would the predominant builder or developer in any of your properties benefit from the uptick in traffic or the word of mouth praise from an entryway decorated to perfection? Would they be willing to cover the cost or offset the cost? This is so much more than curb appeal. What if you could deliver to your client this kind of effect and have the neighborhood morale increase exponentially. Well, we at The Service Group believe you can!
The Service Group Decorating
The crux of the decision-making process for Christmas decorations is value vs. cost. Christmas decorating companies fall into two business models, those who require you to buy the lights and those who lease the lights to you. The following comparison defines the two and gives you a sense of how we are different.
Leasing vs. Buying Christmas Lights
Both models include the installation. However, the obvious difference is that buying requires a large capital investment including the risks and liability that go with ownership. Why spend additional money on the decorations themselves to get the results you are after? Most companies won’t install other companies’ lights so, you are not free to change companies without the penalty of having to buy new lights yet again. With The Service Group, you never buy lights!
Both models maintain the decorations. However, if you own the decor there will be a charge for replacing old or broken material. The Service Group maintains and replaces the decorations both during the installation and “off season” where we painstakingly go through each and every bulb and strand changing out old or broken bulbs and wire. We boast a 24-hour service call resolution while the lights are installed on your property. We replace the lights and bows on our wreaths and garland each season… all at no cost. Don’t spend your money just to own worn-out decor! The Service Group replaces Wreaths and Garland when needed, again at no charge.
Both models will remove the decor… However, many charge separately to take the lights down and some even charge to store them. If you own the lights what incentive does a company have to be careful with your material or to store it properly? The Service Group charges one set fee which includes installation, maintenance, removal and storage. Do you have adequate space to store “your” decor? The Service Group has ample storage in its new, well-secured building.
Both models are legally required to have insurance, however, few have the specific insurance required to properly protect you from liability and litigation. Do you have adequate industry specific insurance to cover the loss/replacement of “your” lights? The Service Group is covered by the appropriate industry specific insurance.
The Service Group operates in the same 4 categories as others at a fraction of the cost. Our residential client base represents customers from 850 square feet up to 8500 square feet, yet our average cost per client is below $900.
In short, our customer driven business model provides the best value by saving you money in taking the financial risk of ownership without the penalty of buying lights. This puts the incentive to perform the BEST squarely on The Service Group, right where it belongs.
Stop buying Christmas DECOR… instead spend your money on Christmas Décor-ATING (DECORATING)
