If you’ve ever eaten at a fast food restaurant, you’ve probably ordered some kind of “value meal” that included all of the things you’d typically want in a meal, such as an entree, a side item, and a drink. By ordering the meal instead of buying each item individually, you save money.
When you hire Odds & Ends Home Improvement, you can save money in a similar way by bundling home improvement services that complement each other and purchasing them all at the same time, instead of buying each service individually. That’s because driving out to a customer’s home is an expense that we must build in to the cost of our services. If we can complete multiple projects in one trip, it saves us money, and we pass the discount along to our customer.
Here are four ideas about how you can save money by bundling home improvement services:
#1: The Curb Appeal Bundle
Keeping your property clean and well maintained is a great way to increase not only the curb appeal of your home, but also the property value. This is especially important if you are trying to sell your home. We offer many services that can help you increase the curb appeal of your home, such as pressure washing, roof cleaning, and tree trimming services.
If you have us do several of these tasks during one visit, we can give you a discount. Also, the overall visual effect will be much more dramatic, as you’ll notice an immediate increase in the curb appeal of your property.
#2: The Crawl Space & Attic Bundle
The crawl space and attic are two areas of a home that often get neglected when it comes to home maintenance. Perhaps this is because of the “out of sight, out of mind” principle, but whatever the reason, the fact is that many people just don’t do a good job keeping these areas cleaned.
Unfortunately, many small home maintenance problems begin in either the attic or the crawl space, where they spread unnoticed until they become major issues that are costly to repair. These include leaks, mold and mildew problems, and pest control issues.
We offer several services that can help in this area, including crawl space inspections, hauling away junk that has accumulated in your attic or crawl space, and general clean-up services.
#3: The Inside Maintenance Bundle
In addition to all of the services we offer related to the exterior of your property, we also can help maintain the inside of your home. Services that fall into this category include interior painting, plumbing, and electrical work. Often, we do many of these services as part of a larger remodeling project, but this isn’t always the case.
Sometimes, someone initially calls us for one reason, such as a leaking pipe, but while we are at their home they realize that they have other problems that need to be addressed also. We are then able to complete several tasks during one visit, which saves them money.
#4: The Routine Maintenance Bundles (Our Service Plans)
Essentially, our home improvement service plans are a way of bundling routine maintenance services that need to be performed on a regular basis. These services include things like replacing smoke alarm batteries, inspecting the hot water heater and washer/dryer area, inspecting toilets, cleaning gutters, etc. We have three different plans, and also allow customers to create custom plans depending on exactly what tasks they want us to complete.
Service plans like this are truly unique in the home improvement industry, and we think that they are a much better way of purchasing home improvement services. Not only do they allow homeowners to spread out the costs of routine home maintenance tasks over an entire year, they also make it easy for them to budget enough money for home maintenance. In addition, the plans also help keep small maintenance issues from turning into major repair jobs by fixing problems early on.
