Why a Pre-Quote Home Inspection is Best Practice
At Verisure, we believe in clarity and openness. That’s why we want to take a moment to explain why it’s important to have your home inspected before getting a quote from any security company.
Each house is unique
You chose your home for a reason. Maybe it’s the backyard, or the superb layout, or the fact that it has a bright and cheery living room. Your house has specific characteristics that, while similar to other homes, is still unique in some way.
A company which offers a fixed price on security items does not take these characteristics into consideration. For example, you may want a shock sensor near your back door, but you aren’t yet aware your washer will set it off every time you do laundry. Without coming to inspect the property in person, a security company may just send you a quote which includes that back door sensor (with the extra cost).
Your needs are unique
We don’t just ask about the house when we call to set up an inspection. Your daily activities and personal needs are also critical for us to know about before building your security quote.
You may have pets which will set off unnecessary alarms in certain rooms, or you might have an older loved one who needs more time to deactivate an alarm. Your daily activities should be taken into account, such as when you come and go, how many people have access to your premises, and how much time you need to disarm your system.
Of course, you probably already know what you’re looking for, and that’s great. But sometimes we don’t take everything into consideration when making a major purchase, especially if we don’t have years of experience in the field. That’s why it’s best to have a professional come by and take a look at everything. You’re under no obligation to purchase the items we suggest, but you’ll be better informed about which areas may need more protection. Which leads us to…
You deserve to meet our representatives in person
Our goal is to provide peace of mind. This starts from the first call through to installation and daily monitoring. We care about you, and we want to put in the time to get to know you and your needs. This means you’ll get a comprehensive professional security inspection, free of charge, which will highlight all the potential safety risks your home and daily routine may pose. Quality is key, and we wouldn’t be meeting our personal standards if we didn’t come to your house to perform this security inspection. For us, this is the main reason we quote you after inspection. We know if wouldn’t be right to send off a quote without knowing exactly what your situation is and ensuring that we can cover you in the best possible way.
