I want to put it out on the line for all my customers,
potential customers, and for the nation at large considering
alarm systems. Its a new world out there regarding alarm
systems. We are no longer stuck in the 90's with antiquated
security systems that only the fairly rich could afford.
Today's security system has more bells and whistles than
a shiny new Caddy and all contracts, confusions, financing
and options that you would expect from a car dealership
too. So, what is a consumer to do?
It seems that every John and Nancy has written a comment
or two on the various hate sites for consumers, but can
those really be trusted? at first glance
that trusting in a sponsor such as Trust Dale or Clarke Howard would be the right
thing to do before buying a product, but all TV figures receive compsentation for
their opinions. It seems that doing your research on the internet should yield you
some answers, but the internet is filled with advertising and polluted with false
customer testimony, both good and bad.
A sales rep really only has one goal in mind and that is to make a sale, so again
where should you start your buying decision? I own a security system installation
company in Norcross, GA. If I was buying an alarm today, I would start with the
BBB. I would review several alarm companies that stood out to me with good
ratings and perhaps call the alarm association for second opinions. I would then
contact several companies and find out the terms- contact length, monitoring cost,
equipment cost, installation cost, type of equipment to be installed, and how the
company handles service issues.
After I've isolated a few contenders I would have them come over to my home to
demonstrate the products and services for me and show me exactly what my
money would buy. If a salesman or rep was too pushy or seemed shady I would
forget that company and move on.
Its also a good idea to ask detailed questions about contract length, type of
equipment you'll be receiving, how it works, how the monitoring works,
and what will happen should a piece of equipment fail. If you still need more
information about the company, ask for a few references. Our company is
happy to provide references. We are proud that our customers love us and
our excited that you want to hear about it.
In the end, it has to be a good fit for both parties. Alarm companies actually put a
lot on the line everyday to protect and servce their community. Here at Crime
Fighters of Atlanta, we take each installation personally.
