My dad used the same commercial HVAC company in Phoenix for the past 15 years to service the equipment in our hardware store.
The hardware store is located right outside of Phoenix in a small suburb.
I am close enough to the city to enjoy some of the clubs, restaurants, and bars. I am so far enough away from the city to have cheaper real estate prices and smaller communities. My dad purchased the land for the hardware store 30 years ago and he had a small shop at first. The hardware store grew overtime and now it is one of the biggest hardware and lumber stores in the city. We are a good competitor with some of the big name brand chains like Lowe’s or Home depot. When we had some problems with the ventilation system in the lumber mill, I contacted the commercial HVAC company that my dad was using. They wanted to charge really hefty fees for the work that needed to be done and I honestly thought that they were too high. I decided to contact a couple of different Phoenix HVAC contractors to see if I could get a lower bid for the work. I received three other estimates for the commercial ventilation system work and all three were lower than the company that my dad has been using for the past 15 years. I found a lot of new contractors that can provide services to the hardware store for a much lower rate than we were paying in the past. I plan to take full advantage of these contractors and make some serious heating and cooling changes in the shop.
