- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing varies depending on the job. Many customers have multiple things that are small, so they are better addressed by an hourly rate. For larger jobs, I can bid the job in it's entirety. I always like to discuss the scope of work and timeline with clients. It s important to clearly define expectations from the start, that way everyone is happy!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically will make an initial visit to plan the work unless it is minor enough in nature that it can be addressed in an hour or two. One thing that helps with that is smartphones. try to leverage technology whenever possible. Getting pictures texted prior to arrival for example is a great way for me to understand and plan the scope of the work. This saves time and money in the long run.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I grew up in Portland, Oregon and spent most of my 20's as a machinist and also as a crane rigger in the ship repair business. I've done projects on a wide variety of mediums over the years. The thing I rely on more than any other is my problem solving skills. Ever job is different. Critical thinking skills matter most!
