How an Answering Service Can Benefit You During Hurricane Season
If you have a business that specializes in storm damage repair, your customers may need to get your attention beyond normal service hours. This is especially true from June through November, the time of year known as hurricane season. A cost-effective way to remain available to respond to urgent customer requests is by using a reliable answering service.
Improved Customer Service
Nearly 60 percent of customers prefer to call a business to talk to a real person, according to one marketing survey. Even if there are no immediate signs of damage to a home or business, talking to an actual person can provide some much-appreciated reassurance for a customer. Increasing your availability beyond regular business hours for emergency situations can also improve your reputation for providing responsive customer service.
Quickly Assessing Storm Damage
With sustained winds that can range anywhere from 74 mph to 160 mph, hurricanes can cause instant damage to structures. Even low-intensity storms can snap branches and uproot unstable trees, which can cause damage to a nearby home or business. Understandably, customers who are dealing with some type of damage to their home or business after any type of hurricane often need an immediate response to at least assess the situation.
Common Types of Hurricane-Related Damage Include:
• Cracks or signs of wear on exterior walls
• Broken windows or doors
• Clogged gutters or storm drains
• Roof punctures or blown-off shingles
• Missing or damaged HVAC parts, especially outside components
