Window replacement is a big investment. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous businesses are operating with the aim of tricking customers into paying for more than what they’re getting.
Beware of shady sales tactics utilized by dishonest window companies. It pays to familiarize yourself with these so that you can easily sniff out a fishy deal. JLR Home Renovation, a trusted home and kitchen remodeling contractor in the area, lists some of the most common tactics used by dishonest businesses to take advantage of clients.
“Buy Some Get Some”
If a salesperson offers you a free window for every three windows you purchase, make sure that you’re really getting the fourth window at no extra cost. Some businesses offer this kind of promo by simply giving you a bundle rate. You can easily check if a discount is in place by comparing the bundle rate against the regular prices.
“Price Is Only Good for Today”
Unless they are actually running a sale and it’s the last day of their sale period, there’s no reason for a salesperson to say they can only offer that price on that specific day. This is a common tactic that intends to pressure a customer into buying right then and there.
Also, keep in mind that a good salesperson will give you plenty of time to consider the investment and research other options. If you’re considering other types of replacement windows, they will be happy to give you the time you need to carefully consider your choices and come up with a well-informed decision.
Read the Fine Print
This is a reminder that you shouldn’t forget to read the fine print. As a customer, you should fully understand the contract you’re signing. Every detail should be properly explained to you. If you feel overwhelmed, ask for a copy of the terms and agreement. Give it a read when you get home or when you have a clearer head. Check for warranties, labor fees or other hidden charges. Never hesitate to ask questions if something is confusing to you.
