VSF Ltd offer our services and products to a wide client base. We provide quotations via two ways; face-to-face consultations and via the Internet.
Face-to-face consultations are completed during the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. This option is available to all prospective customers. Face-to-face consultations are provided via clients that expressly request our services by providing us with their personal information via telephoning our office or via our website. This type of quotation is pre-arranged generally 2-3 days in advance. These consultations typically last between 20 minutes and upwards of an hour depending on the complexity of the job and the number of questions that are raised during the consultation. This type of consultation is more thorough than via the Internet as we are to able to view and accurately assess all work(s) that is required to finer detail. Although this carries an increased cost to you, we are able to offer the best advice available. We always recommend that if you live alone and would like to arrange a face-to-face consultation that you have a family member of friend present during the consultation.
All face-to-face consultations can be cancelled prior to the appointment date and time. There is no obligation to proceed with the consultation. There are no costs associated with the consultation.
All of our Consultants generally are not from your local area. This will incur an additional cost for travelling and occasionally accommodation. This is calculated amongst the number of clients that are being seen so during quieter periods, this cost generally increases.
Internet Sales are carried out in-house by our Internet Sales Team. This option is available to all prospective customers.
We offer this service, so we can provide quotations to customers who lead busy schedules due to work and other commitments and are unable to allocate time and resources for a face-to-face consultation. Internet Sales are provided using 3rd party imaging software along with customer information that is supplied via telephone or via our website. Internet sales may be subject to customer participation to gather correct measurements and descriptions of proposed requirements being provided beforehand or during the quotation period. Internet sales can reduce the overall costs. This includes savings of the costs of consulting, travelling expenses and accommodation due to the nationwide coverage, Internet sales are regularly used to fill in gaps to our installation order book, so we can maximise our installation costs.
VSF Ltd may from time to time buy products or offer services we provide in bulk to further incentivise our quotations.
