Buying a System vs. Buying the Parts
Have you ever checked a company’s pricing by going to Wal-Mart and looking for the same product on the shelf? Perhaps you are a little more tech-savvy and looked for the products on Amazon or another online retailer.
We have all done it. And if you are anything like me, you ended up choosing the least expensive option. Sure the price is lower — but how does the value compare?
Once you purchased parts from Amazon or your local box store, you get home and start installing the pieces yourself (after struggling through the instruction manual a few times…) Once you get it installed, everything works fine for the first few weeks. Success! But then, a hiccup. What do you do at this point? Dig out the instruction manual, search frantically for a customer service number, stay on hold for an hour to talk to someone who may or may not be able to help you, and finally find out that your best bet is to uninstall everything. Then you return to the store with all of the parts, turn them in for new parts, and start all over again. It’s exhausting.
Why go through all this hassle just to save a few dollars?
Here’s the alternative. Instead of buying parts… buy the system. What’s the difference? Installation, programming, training, maintenance, and repair. Of course it is cheaper to just buy the parts… But what does the inevitable headache of troubleshooting and repair cost? With Ener-Tel, you make an initial phone call and one of our account executives asks you what you’re looking for. We take care of installation, programming and training. After the installation, if something breaks or isn’t working quite right, call us. You’ll speak directly to a real person who will schedule a technician to come and diagnose the issue. No headache. No fuss.
Don’t just buy parts. Buy the system.
There’s no comparison on overall value.
