Don’t let the ghouls in through leaking windows this Halloween.

Don’t let the ghouls in through leaking windows this Halloween.

Are you looking to get your windows fixed or replaced before the winter? Before you do, let’s look behind the curtain and understand what type of sales tricks window salespeople will use.  

The company charges a higher price, ensuring you are overwhelmed by the initial quote.  

    •  This can be a common trend across many different types of vendors. Make sure you are paying attention to competitor pricing and getting multiple quotes. 

The company returns with a “better than ever” deal for you.  

    • Because they started high, this “better than ever” deal will actually be more reasonable to you, but still not a discount.  

You may think this is the best deal ever and jump to sign the contract, but this type of salesperson hopes you will make the jump on this deal because of the fear of the unknown. 

    • They want a quick close of the deal, take your time to look over all quotes to ensure you are going with the right vendor. Also, it would be a good idea to check out reviews from the company to see what other customers experiences are like.  

Larger companies also are aware that there are homeowners who make their purchase decisions quickly and will accept the initial quote and pay the inflated rate. This common sales tactic only adds to the company’s bottom line and supports its massive advertising budget. 

    • The overall takeaway is to not take the initial quote, make sure you shop around, and take your time!
