What advantage does Otis Refrigeration give me from its competitors?
We know nearly all of our competitors very well, and many of them are excellent teams. However, it’s our manufacture connections that is our biggest advantage, we don’t work on only 3 or 5 brands we work on them all, even better we usually know the manufactures on a first name basis at the factory. This means not only is your unit being fixed or maintained by factory trained and even on-site coached Technicians, that when the invoice comes in, we will work with the factory to ensure warranty compliance and the quickest possible escalation to a solution. These is a reason why many manufactures consider us their best asset in the field to take care of you!

I had Technicians ( Insert name) and they was awesome! can we get them every time?
First, thats great! were exicted that one of our teamates really went the extra mile to leave such an amaizing impression on you. In fact most our amaizing customers have their favorites.

There is good news though, all of our techs work closely with each other and are available to each other for discussion review and advice.

Can you tell me more about your billing, especially travel?
Unfortunately, there is no quick answer. Everything from location, to municipalities to even type of equipment can impact the cost. Some basic things to keep in mind. Any time we have to send a technician we have to cover their labor. Techs are highly skilled and trained and good ones are hard to come by. Labor billing includes their drive time. In addition we do bill for our trucks as well, everthing from taxes, insurnace, upkeep, fuel and more is included in this. Nearly all invoices will include these charges. Depending on the number of locations and/or terms and contracts charges can be negotiated. Our normal billing is Portal to Portal, Labor + Parts/Services. If your in business, you know everythig has a cost. We work really hard to be as fair as possible before you even see the bill
How can I be sure you are the right person for the job?
We have been doing this along time. in that time we know one thing for sure. It all comes down to relationship. No service company is perfect 100% of the time. We certainly are not charities either. The real question is do you think We or whoever you choose will work with you.
A Brief story - There was a large chain in the area that had a small father son team working on their restaraunt equipment. This team stole parts of other equipment to "temporaily" fix other equipment, they bipassed critical system because they were no familar with them. This sorrt of workman ship caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage, close to $50,000 per store.
Not all nightmares are like this. And their will be times where a compressor is diagnosed and then we find a TXV is bad as well. We hate those situations, but utlimately it all comes down to who you trust, and will your contractor work with you to get you take care of.
There are many great teams and techs out there. However, please do your self and your equipment a favor. Find a team you like and try to stick with them (if they are taking care of you). Imagine you switched doctors constantly, your medication and your health would be constant states of flux and unknown. Equipment is much the same and having the same people looking over it is very benificail to your overall ROI.
What experience do you have?
Founded in 1935, internally we have over 100 years. In the feild we have an average experience of over 10 years. Our industry as a whole is experiencing a massive shortage of experience individuals. in the early 90's, 2000's and 2010's most of the entry workforce pursued college based careers other non trade careers. While nearly all the great techs from the 60's,70's and 80's are retired or leaving the feild very soon. We luckily are seeing an increase in trade schools and hopefully over the next decade there will be many more techs in the feild. We have a robust plan to teach, train and equip this new generation to give them the knoweage to delvier the Otis Advantage to you!
What guarantees can you offer that the job will be finished on time and on budget?
Whats the old addage, a plan never survives contact with the enemy? Well this isnt the movies, and it is your business, your livelihood. We work very hard to ensure our numbers are accurate. Some typicall delays we see, are related to electricians, tiling, and roofing. This highlights that in many situations we are at the mercy of multiple other areas. Ofcourse our significiant experience helps mitigate these situations and find solutions to them. We truly feel were the best and that you wont be dissapointed by making us your partner!
